Mental Health Professionals Warn About Trump

The New York Times' letters to the editor:

Mr. Trump’s speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists).

In a powerful leader, these attacks are likely to increase, as his personal myth of greatness appears to be confirmed. We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.

Anyone who knew or knew of Mr. Trump in his younger years as a New York City playboy knew these specialists’ opinions as fact. And anyone who knew these as facts also knew Trump would make for a terrible president, because presidents of the United States need a thick skin and a calm mind. Mr. Trump has neither.

The wheels are coming off the bus early. It’s not going to get any better from here on.

Go ahead, make an excuse for him. It’s your country ...
