Psychiatrist: Trump Mental Health Urgently Deteriorating


Dr. John Gartner, Founder of "Duty To Warn" and co-editor of "Rocket Man: Nuclear Madness and the Mind of Donald Trump," joins the 'David Pakman Show' to discuss the mental health conditions he believes Donald Trump has, which would justify his removal from the Presidency under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.

He says that the latest version of the psychiatry diagnostic handbook is based on "observable behaviors" rather than speculative psycho-analytics. "So if I can observe your behavior, or talk to someone who has observed your behavior, I can form a valid diagnosis."

"One of the reasons Trump is so dangerous is he actually suffers from multiple conditions," Gartner said, listing four traits which point to "malignant narcissism": "narcissism, of course... paranoia, his crazy conspiracy theories and demonization of the opposition, and this constant feeling that he is a victim or aggrieved... Anti-social personality disorder sometimes called sociopathy. This is someone who routinely lies, who violates and exploits other people with no remorse... the criminal personality, predators without a conscience. And finally, sadism, actually enjoying harming other people... The cruelty is not a bug it is a feature, there is an element of pleasure he gets from crushing smaller people under his boot."

"This is the essence of evil," he said. "They get worse over time, not better."
