Good Weekend Widdershins!
Let’s face it folks: the man is batshit crazy. We’ve known it all along. We saw it demonstrated on tv for all to see during the primaries and the general election. We have seen any number of suggested reasons for his behavior: he has a short attention span, he has ADD or ADHD, he could be dealing with dementia or could have sundowners syndrome.
I had a couple of pieces bookmarked with give some different diagnoses. This article from The Independent suggests he has “malignant narcissism”.
In a bid to warn the public, psychologists are publishing their diagnoses of Trump. Most recently, John D. Gartner said Trump “is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president.”
He believes Trump shows signs of “malignant narcissism,” which is defined as a mix of narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, aggression and sadism in Campbells’ Psychiatric Dictionary.
Meanwhile, this article from The Daily News suggests a few other symptoms and other issues.
The fuzzy outlines of President Trump’s likely mental illness came into sharper focus this week: in two interviews with major networks, he revealed paranoia and delusion; he quadruple-downed on his fabrication that millions of people voted illegally, which demonstrated he is disconnected from reality itself; his petulant trade war with Mexico reveals that he values self-image even over national interest; his fixation with inaugural crowd size reveals a childish need for attention.
“Narcissism impairs his ability to see reality,” said Dr. Julie Futrell, a clinical psychologist, who, of course, added a standard disclaimer because she has never actually treated Trump. “So you can’t use logic to persuade someone like that. Three million women marching? Doesn’t move him. Advisers point out that a policy choice didn’t work? He won’t care. The maintenance of self-identity is the organizing principle of life for those who fall toward the pathological end of the narcissistic spectrum.”
Call it what you will, we know what he is: Batshit crazy.
I have found a few songs to go along with the theme. There are tons and tons of them out there but I concentrated on the crazy songs concerning those who are truly disturbed. My selections are below and feel free to contribute your own in the comments.
(2) Fight ~ Little Crazy
(3) Metal Church ~ Psycho
(4) Criminally Insane ~ Slayer
(5) Institutionalized ~ Suicidal Tendencies
(6) Stone Cold Crazy ~ Queen
So there you go Widdershins: a half dozen songs about mental illness, craziness, what-have-you in celebration (?) of our 45th President and Commander-in-Chief of the military. As always, this is an open thread.
