John D. Gartner, a practicing psychotherapist who taught psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins University Medical School, weighs in with his professional assessment of Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president. Trump has “malignant narcissism“— which is different from narcissistic personality disorder, and which is incurable.”
Eliot A. Cohen, The Atlantic
Precisely because the problem is one of temperament and character, it will not get better. It will get worse, as power intoxicates Trump and those around him. It will probably end in calamity—substantial domestic protest and violence, a breakdown of international economic relationships, the collapse of major alliances, or perhaps one or more new wars (even with China) on top of the ones we already have. It will not be surprising in the slightest if his term ends not in four or in eight years, but sooner, with impeachment or removal under the 25th Amendment. The sooner Americans get used to these likelihoods, the better.
Jesus did not look with approval upon the refusal to employ force to protect the majority of any given human group against the unfair and enslaving practices of unjust minorities who may be able to entrench themselves behind political, financial, or ecclesiastical power.
