The big question posed after Donald Trump's bizarre and incoherent rant last night was is he having some sort of breakdown under the pressure?
The easy answer is no, he is just a massive bell end trying to deflect media attention away from his dubious links with Russia and poor decision making but docotrs have reached another conclusion, he has a mental illness.
A group of mental health professionals have suggested that: 'Mr Trump is incapable, on psychiatric grounds, of serving as president' and put it down to his suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders puts the symptoms of NPL as: 'an exaggerated sense of self-importance, fantasies of success, power, brilliance or beauty, belief in being special, requiring excessive admiration, a sense of entitlement, selfish in taking advantage of others, lacking empathy, envious of others, arrogant, haughty, patronising or contemptuous and anyone
if a perosn can identify with at least five of the symptoms, they can be said to have the mental disorder.
As he almost ticks every one of the boxes, the mental health doctors could have a very strong case but then that brings us to the thorny issue of, if Donald Trump is suffering from mental illness, can we still mock him?
Considering that his eye-shakingly bad decision making is down to a mental problem kinds of makes an excuse for him but as far as i am aware he has not had a diagnosis so it is okay to carry on saying it is just down to him being a World Class, Olympic sized cretin with dodgy financial links to Russia who is cracking under the Pressure of the spotlight. Oh, and an illiterate misogynist sex pest, racist and failed businessman, let's not forget those traits.
