WHAT TRUMP HAS IS WORSE THAN MENTAL ILLNESS, by Art Smukler MD, author & psychiatrist

Often through the years, I’ve told patents that being aware of how they suffer is special, that a lot of people are incapable of psychological insight, they just do what they do without any ability to see how their behavior affects others.

A sociopath is untreatable. Many of them reside in our prison system, because they don’t belong in a world of trusting, ethical people. They lie, cheat, steal, and create all kinds of violent mayhem without a touch of guilt. They are incapable of feeling guilt, therefore they can do whatever they want as long as no-one stops them.

Sociopaths only feel bad when they are caught and punished. Not because they hurt anyone, but because their ability to cause harm or steal etc. is thwarted.

Like all sociopaths, Trump is a danger to anyone who tries to stop him. Lucky Donald has many mini-Trumps (little Republicans) who aid his destructive world view.

How many Americans would still be alive if HE wore a mask?

How many restaurants and stores would be open if HE advocated social distancing?

A LOT!

Oh… and what about Russia? What leverage does Putin have on Trump?

The cabinet and Pence have the ability to deem Trump incapable of keeping us safe and remove him from office.

Will they do it?

Never.

It’s depressing and disgusting.

MY ADVICE, JOE — DON’T WASTE YOUR BREATH, Art Smukler MD, author & psychiatrist

Sometimes the time for debate and discussion is over. Rational discussion is only helpful when you are dealing with a rational person.

My experience as a psychiatrist, who specialized in doing psychotherapy, taught me that a point is reached when a person will do whatever he wants, in spite of overwhelming evidence that his decision is wrong.

That is the case with a person ( I don’t call him a man because he is too much of a spoiled baby ) like Donald Trump. Joe, you’ll never be able to have a reasonable discussion with him. It’s like trying to get Hitler to stop invading Europe. Sometimes war is appropriate when you want to save the world.

Now, it’s time to hunker down and vote. Why subject yourself to the arrogance of a hopeless narcissist? Who cares what he says? If you don’t debate him he’ll say you’re scared. If you do debate him, he’ll scream whenever you point out that he’s a liar and an obvious racist. Take the night off and have a romantic dinner with your wife.

His sycophants won’t change.

Most people won’t bother listening to the lying blowhard, if there is a 2nd debate.

Don’t deal with him again. Let him rant and scream to his unmasked followers. Who cares? Prepare yourself for the job of rebuilding this nation.
