Dr. Justin A. Frank is a Washington, DC psychiatrist who wrote Bush on the Couch and Obama on the Couch. In this equally entertaining and informative conversation, we put Donald Trump “on the couch”
Your humble host has had many frank conversations with this doctor, and today we examine the unique personality of Donald Trump.
We start by comparing Trump to other rich celebrities who have served in public office, including Arnold Schwarzenegger’s disastrous years as California governor, and Silvio Berlusconi’s romp through two terms as Prime Minister of Italy.
As I raise different terms that are used to describe Trump, Dr. Frank offers the analyst’s view: bully, liar, pathological liar, narcissist, delusional. He also affirms my view that Trump exhibits symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder.
We also profile the Americans who are drawn to support an authoritarian leader, and John Oliver’s brilliant takedown of the border wall fantasy offered by the Donald. The article we refer to in Calbuzz is here.
And near the end, we talk about Obama’s approach to the GOP Senate’s intention to block any consideration of his Supreme Court nominee.
