A few days ago I put up a piece from Sam Seder’s Minority Report about a letter by three American professors of psychiatry to the Surgeon General expressing concern about Donald Trump’s health. The writers believed that Trump showed signs of severe personality defects that could exclude him from being medically fit to fulfil his post as the next American president. They therefore requested that the Surgeon General should order a psychological examination of The Donald to assess his mental fitness.
I received this comment from Twoifbycharm, who said:
This is dead on. I have done some writing on this topic, and several doctors have weighed in favorably on it. Trump exhibits the characteristics of a narcissistic sociopath. Please take a look at my report and decide for yourself. This is a dangerous situation. https://twoifbycharmwordpress.wordpress.com/ B. Ashley.

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, we have seen numerous examples of Donald Trump’s behavior fitting neatly into the blueprint presented in this blog. The “black heart” and “lack of empathy” Mr. Khan so eloquently spoke of falls within the framework of a dangerous personality disorder according to experts. Some call it Narcissistic Personality Disorder, while other experts describe this behavior as sociopathic, or psychopathic.
The purpose of the original posting below (link to WordPress article dated 07.14.16 is posted here) is to call attention to an apparent mental health issue as it appears to relate to Trump. It is to provoke thought and incite a broad discussion around Donald Trump’s apparent dangerous personality disorder, and provides a reliable and consistent profile of Trump’s behavior.
Based on Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Martha Stout’s highly-touted book, The Sociopath Next Door, Trump seems to fit the bill of a sociopath, and that is why I speculated that he is a sociopath in the original posting. A reasonable person must admit that Trump’s behavior does align with the description in her introductory chapter.
I don’t know whether there is something clinically wrong with Trump, or if he simply just another racist, misogynist moron with an immense, and immensely fragile ego and an overwhelming urge to power. Though if you put it that way, there probably is. If you’re interested in this issue, you may wish to go to Twoifbycharm’s website and make your own decision, based on what they have to say.
