Psychologists are not typically supposed to clinically evaluate people from afar, but Donald Trump has toxically injected himself so deeply into America’s daily consciousness with ludicrous egomania that it’s impossible even for amateur psychologists to inaccurately evaluate Trump’s lead-soaked, dumb, little brain based on his public, sociopathic behavior:

When he drew on the hurricane map with a Sharpie: Like all narcissistic authoritarians, his sense of worth is intrinsically dependent on an exhaustively manufactured façade of never being wrong about anything, which leads to an omnipresent fury to lash back at anyone, anywhere, who points out his flubs and mistakes.

The Obama birth certificate conspiracy peddling: He’s racist, and there’s really no reason to pretend otherwise. He was sued by the government for racist housing practices in the 70s, he bought a whole page ad demanding the death penalty for innocent Black kids in the 80s, he fucked over Native American casinos in the 90s, he has a history of never hiring Black people in his businesses and not wanting Black winners on The Apprentice in the 00’s, and he went all in on Birtherism in the 2010s. And then he became president, and administered one of the most belligerently racist presidencies in US history, which has some strong competition. His entire adult life has been dogged by credible accusations of racism. At the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner that so infamously enraged Trump, Seth Meyers told the joke, “Donald Trump said recently he has a great relationship with the blacks, but unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he is mistaken,” which is funny because everyone knows he’s racist. Self-identifying racists often admit that’s why they like him. So don’t take it from me, an amateur psychologist evaluating Donald Trump unprofessionally from afar, take…
