A former Harvard psychiatry professor said that Trump’s multiple legal problems are taking him to an even darker place.
From Raw Story:
In an interview with Salon’s Chauncey DeVega, Dr. Lance Dodes, former clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, suggested the pressures of Donald Trump’s multitude of legal woes, combined with the possibility his financial fortune could be wiped out, are aggravating his existing mental problems which could lead him to incite a new wave of violence that the country witnessed on Jan. 6.
Asked by DeVega about Trump’s “state of mind and resulting behavior these last few weeks,” Dodes began by observing, “Donald Trump’s severe narcissistic, antisocial (sociopathic) character disorder means he cannot tolerate or even acknowledge losses or defeats.”
Although I’d like to hope Trump would just curl up in the fetal position and become unable to leave his bedroom, that does not seem likely, according to Dodes:
“Ultimately, he may decompensate to the point of gross paranoid psychosis with even more obvious incitement to riots and civil war rather than accept the reality that he has been finally held accountable,” he warned.
