Stupid psychiatric diagnosis

April 4, 2017

“It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters,” the Times editorial board wrote in the first of a four-part op-ed titled “Our Dishonest President.”

In September, the same editorial board called Trump “unqualified and unsuited to be president” and said his election would be “catastrophic for the nation.”

Dr. Kinarthy’s, a psychologist, commentary:

Let me analyse this editorial quote from the LA Times:

This article in the LA Times is a classic example of meaningful  “Fake news,” and worse.  An unqualified psychiatric opinion by a louly reporter is not news; it’s fear and ignorance. To brand Trump a “narcissist” without being qualified to judge psychiatric terms is like you and me pick up a person in the street who said something and diagnose him as being paranoid schizophrenic with delusional tendencies. I would not do that even to this LAT reporter although it sounds about right! You are not a trained doctor or a trained tester of presidents with the MMPI. You just have feelings from childhood with dad, growing up in a liberal home. I bet you that the reporter doesn’t even know the DSM definition of a narcissist. Stating banalitiest in public indicates a “System One” error of thinking fallacy as explained by Nobel price winner Dr. Daniel Cahneman.” And, as far as accusing Trump of being a “demagogue,” he is not. President Trump is a very successful businessman. The reporter’s views of him tell us more about the reporter than about Trump!  That kind of jealousy is terrible to feel. The reporter probably doesn’t have a lot of money, never built anything physical that contributed to people living and doesn’t have a beautiful and successful family like Trump has. Jealousy is the most vicious feeling in a relationship (leads to hate, murder, antisemitism, etc). The reporter’s jealousy of Trump means that no one can ever convince him to apologize to president Trump for writing this stupid article! I also see a Freudian Projection in the quote from the LA Times. Trump is not dishonest, the people at the LA Times may be – to write things without knowledge! But, a last segment from the quote in the LAT is the worse! Believing that Trump, a very successful business leader is less qualified to be president than “community organizer” Obama,  oh, my God, it’s stupid! What the reporter really meant was, “Trump is less qualified to be president because he is a right-winger,” and that tells it all about the reporter! It remind me of another newspaper in another country called “Haarets,” that is not qualified to be a newspaper because it is full of fake news.

Sad, sad, sad,  because these fake but powerful reporters and newspapers don’t understand that disseminating their “childhood” views slow the progress of humanity towards peace and prosperity. Let us hope that with education these opinion framers can change. I’ll give it another 100 years before it becomes too late for humanity to recover from the historical damage from Socialism, Fascism, Islamism, Communism, Leftism, Liberalism, or any other future delusions of the good life bring just around the corner!
