President Trump is a 'world class narcissist,' but he's not mentally ill, says the psychiatrist who helped define narcissism

I watched President Trump’s news conference the other day, and I thought: He’s kind of crazy. Not crazy crazy. But you know, just weird.

He is self-absorbed, unabashed about repeating falsehoods, and rude. He doesn’t listen to questions before launching into misguided tirades. He thought a reporter from a Jewish newspaper had accused him of anti-Semitism when the poor guy went out of his way to do the opposite.

So maybe he’s hard of hearing, too.

Anyway, the mental state of our commander-in-chief has recently been the subject of a fierce public debate.
