Skip to comments.Donald Trump has 'dangerous mental illness', say psychiatry experts at Yale conference
Posted on 04/21/2017 11:04:17 AM PDT by lbtbell
"We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness," said Dr. John Gartner, a practicing psychotherapist who advised psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins University Medical School and who has in the past warned Trump is a "psychiatric Frankenstein monster."
Gartner and other psychiatrists at the conference argued that Trump suffers from a particularly malignant case of pathological narcissism, which makes him a danger to the country and the world.
"Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was president," Gartner explained. "If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that's delusional."
Dr. James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, said that Trump's erratic behavior has similarly disturbed him despite the fact that he has lots of experience working with violent convicted criminals.
"I've worked with murderers and rapists, I can recognize dangerousness from a mile away," he said. "You don't have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is."

The first moronic psychologist thinks Trump is delusional, yet he believes he can diagnose someone he hasn't even met? O-o-o-kay.
And the second moronic psychiatrist thinks he can spot "dangerousness" from a mile away. Wow, he should be a cop if he has that kind of talent. Psychic ability to recognize dangerousness from a mile away! Imagine that! He could arrest people before they even commit crimes!
Talk about paranoia, delusions, and grandiose thinking! This is Trump Derangement Syndrome at its finest.
Revoke all of their licenses for practicing politics in the guise of medicine.
Yale trying to gaslight the electorate.
Some of the most screwed-up people I have ever met, and their children, are psychiatrists and psychologists. This guy needs to STFU!
I messed up the link—sorry! FR wouldn’t let me post an article from the original source, so I had to use another source.
I don’t know if the mods can correct this in my original post or not. In any case, here’s the link as it should be posted:
There is a word for psychiatrists who diagnose patients without ever examining them. Ducks say it a lot.
Anti/never-Trumpers are mentally ill, just like this person is.
Given the severity of their claims, and the potential effects their claims could have, each of these psychiatrists should undergo extensive psychiatric evaluations themselves.
Hasn’t this good doctor broken rules of ethics and common decency, by doing a long distance evaluation of an unwitting patient?
If you don’t have problems in life and you wonder why and you go to one of these people, your life will be ruined!!!
President Trump is so far ahead of the curve it is amazing to watch...
GO.PRESIDENT TRUMP.GO!!! MAKING AMERCIA GREAT AGAIN!!!
A narcissist as President?
Perish the thought.
He’s not dangerous to me. I hope he’s dangerous to the delusional culture represented by these PhDs in malpractice.
And Obama does not. Nor Bill Clinton, nor Hillary Clinton.
“psychiatric Frankenstein monster.”....
This statement is neither scientific nor medical.
Is this an illegal medical practice besides just drooling idiocy?
They better add a new illness to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual - what is it at now? DSM-IV? New entry:Trump Derangement Syndrome. Fill in the visual and behavioral cues. There are many.
I wonder what diagnosis he had for Zero, not to mention Bill & Hill. If you want to talk about malignant narcissists, they are all textbook cases.
How Soviet of them.
Psychiatry is fake medicine. Trump should sue them all for defamation and slander.
