The doctor is in: David Plouffe calls Trump a 'psychopath'

World-famous psychiatrist Doctor David Plouffe offered a diagnosis of Donald Trump on national television on Sunday, calling the GOP candidate a "psychopath," saying that Trump "meets the clinical definition" of the condition.

Plouffe, who received his degree in psychiatry from...from...wait a minute.  Looking over his résumé, it doesn't appear that Plouffe received a degree in psychiatry from anywhere.  In fact, according to his Wikipedia entry, Plouffe  "left the University of Delaware prior to graduating in 1989 to pursue a full-time career in politics, and completed his full undergraduate degree in May 2010."

But when has a lack of expertise or even outright ignorance ever deterred a liberal from shooting off his mouth?

NBC News:

"I mean, basically, we have a psychopath running for president. I mean, he meets the clinical definition, okay," Plouffe told Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Plouffe backed up his diagnosis by listing off psychopathic symptoms that he said Trump has displayed: "The grandiose notion of self-worth, pathological lying, lack of empathy and remorse."

Still, Plouffe conceded: "I don't have a degree in psychology."

Plouffe, who helped lead Obama to victory in 2008, said he believes Trump's campaign strategies — or seemingly lack there of — are going to lose him the race.

"I think the assessment was that Donald Trump would try and do some things to appeal to the middle of the electorate, to appeal to suburban college-educated women," Plouffe said. "He's not."

"The race ends today; I think Hillary Clinton is guaranteed at least 269 electoral votes," Plouffe said. "I think it's likely going to be a landslide," he added later.

That "list" that Plouffe rattled off to "prove" Trump is a pychopath is laughable:

Grandiose notion of self-worth, pathological lying, lack of empathy and self-worth. I think he does. Right, I don't have a degree in psychology.

So Trump has a "grandiose notion of self worth."  Or is it a "lack ... of self worth"?  Which is it, Dr. Dave?

 

Don't liberals ever get tired of trying to smear GOP presidential nominees by calling them stupid or crazy?  Eisenhower was stupid, lazy, and incoherent.  Nixon was evil.  Ford was stupid and clumsy.  Reagan was the "amiable dunce."  Bush, a rich, out-of-touch rah-rah Ivy League cheerleader.  Dole was mean and senile.  George W. Bush – dumb. 

The fact is, liberals have conditioned the public to see Republicans as not as smart, or hip, or beautiful, or sane as Democrats.  So it comes as a surpise to liberals that the GOP keeps winning elections.

Perhaps instead of tossing out the same tired smears, liberals could actually talk to people instead of talking down to them.  It would be a refreshing change and might get a lot more of them elected.
