Donald Trump and Traits of a Psychopath

The website http://www.sociopathicstyle.com/psychopathic-traits/ has an extensive list of the traits of a psychopath. You can check them out of the website if you wish, so I’m not going to list them all here. The thing I found interesting as I read through the list was that almost all of them apply to Donald Trump.

Well, I should clarify that a bit. One is “early behavior problems” going back to childhood. I know nothing about Trump’s childhood, so I can’t say that that trait applies to him. Another few traits that I can’t pin on Trump are “juvenile delinquency” and “revocation of conditional release.” I just don’t know what Trump did as a youth.

As to “criminal versatility,” Ted Cruz claimed that Donald Trump has connections to the Mafia. Of course, he has. It would be impossible to do construction work in New York without dealing with Mafia-controlled contractors, and it would be impossible to enter the gambling business in Atlantic City without doing business with the Mafia. He dealt with the Mafia in both cities. That does prove that Trump himself has done anything illegal. Although his dealings with Mafia figures are legend, those dealings  may not have crossed a criminal line.

As to Trump’s other psychopathic traits, many of them are apparent to any observer: glib and superficial charm, grandiose self-worth, lack of remorse or guild, poor behavior controls, promiscuous sexual behavior, and the list goes on.

It would be very difficult for anyone to argue that Donald Trump is NOT a psychopath. If you’re thinking of voting for Donald Trump, you may want to ask yourself if you want a psychopath’s finger on the nuclear trigger.
