This is must reading for anyone concerned for the country's well being under the leadership of Donald Trump. Twenty seven psychiatrist specifically look over almost 30 years of tapes, newspaper articles and social media to evaluate Donald Trump as Commander-In-Chief and the picture isn't pretty. What they write is hardly a surprise for any watching his first 297 of Trump's time in the Oval Office. Already there are doubts regarding Trump's stability and toxic narcissism. The book is written from a psychiatrist's viewpoint but it is straight forward and to the point in saying the Americans did itself no favor putting a man so unstable in the White House. I highly recommend this book. It addresses extreme narcissism, bullying, low self esteem, the tendency toward dishonesty even when the lies are transparent. There is no way this book can be reviewed in this short space but I'll close by saying get this book and remember it for the 2018 midterms and of course 2020.

I haven't finished reading the book, but what I've read so far is chilling, what's more, we all seen the behaviors demonstrated regularly like his need to get even. He had no need of getting in NFL business but because NBA champions decided no to do to the White House he went on a Twitter rant while the catastrophe in Puerto Rico received none. Then he wants to compare his IQ with Senator McCorkle after McCorkle criticized him.

I will update this when I finish reading it.

What makes this more bizarre is that bodies of 4 of our soldiers came back from Niger and Trump said publicly that they were great men and he wrote them personally all the time. He claims that none of our other presidents did this before. Only him. John McCain and the offices of 2 of our living ex-presidents are calling Trump a liar. I know nothing about it except what was reported and I would call Trump a liar.

What is this all about? Trump is planting a seed here. Somewhere down the line he wants the poor, chinese, hispanic, black, etc. voters to believe that he alone was in personal contact with our dead fallen soldiers. Maybe these people will vote for him again.

My personal belief is that I can imagine him having trouble reading the names of our fallen off of a telepromter, let alone having been in personal contact with any of them.

He is a misogynist, racist, rich white man with no sympathy for the poor.

And yet women, black/hispanic/chinese/etc, and the poor all voted for him.

Without their vote, he would not be where he is. It's a bizarre situation that the particular groups that he clearly shows disdain for are exactly those that voted him into power. I find it difficult to show sympathy for the utter stupidity of the voting masses.

I do not envy you guys in the least & the faster he's out, the better. I use some of those descriptions of him myself, even with my grade 10 education, its that obvious.

When are the mid-terms.....a year away?

Much of my reading on him has said that most of his business practices were money laundering and bankruptcy.

I'd do the IQ thing with him. My one rule would be that I put my brain in neutral. That way we could start even.

Frankie: All said he suffered from low self-esteem as well as overt narcissim.I'm just about finished and from the book and the things we all have observed it looks likes this man is incompetent, immaterial and irrelevant as Perry Mason said so often said. His own Party is coming apart at the seems as midterms elects are coming up and Trump has become the daily fish wrap.

Comment by Michael Penn on October 16, 2017 at 4:04pm

He also wants to do the IQ thing with Tillerson. The man is a total insult to us and the world. At best his presidency is Reality TV. At worst it might be destruction and a godawful nightmare.

Now I read that North Korea has an EMP weapon that we should be worried about as this would knock out all our satellites. Is it true or is it hype used by the Trump swamp to go to war with?

The last scary thing for me is we had better be watching Venezuela. There's a man down there that wants to stay in office as a dictator. He is claiming actions against him are not legal. Are any of Trump's people taking notes in this? Are they learning all they can about it? Earlier in Trump's term the GOP said they were for delay or cancelling elections if they had to. This doesn't look or sound very good. What purpose would it serve and has it ever been done before in America?

Quite frankly Orange Cheeto scares the bejesus out of me.

Loren, i see his behavior as consistent with low self-esteem. It is just that i had not known others to have that opinion. 

Comment by Loren Miller on October 15, 2017 at 8:02pm

Frankie, if Drumpf DIDN'T have low self-esteem, why was a now-infamous orchestrated cheerleading session organized for him some months ago, during a meeting of his cabinet?  Drumpf has no tolerance for criticism or contradiction.  He wants his way or the highway and no argument, and it hardly takes a book to make such an observation.  In his current position, he is not only a danger but an intolerable one, whose querulous behavior has the potential to injure not just the US but the world.

And one way or the other, he MUST be removed.

Donald, are the evaluators asserting that Trump has low self-esteem?
