Sounds like a few posters we have here.

Yes, I have seen that here. If you really take notice, you can see it in many people at varying degrees. No one likes to be wrong. It's human nature. When it becomes an obsession, that's when it's a problem.

Same can be said for some posters here. Particularly those who seem to get frequent involuntary vacations from posting.  :rolleyes:

Quite true, and you can include those that see leftists around every corner.

Or, when you become President, and still continue to do it.

Time for the child President to find his big boy pants......

I have friends and family with varying degrees some as so far that I just want to hit them up long side their head and scream at them "NO ONE IS PREFECT, GET OVER YOURSELF" and then I think, "oh my god am I as bad as them?"   :)

By it's very nature, narcissism is a tough nut to crack. People have to acknowledge they have a problem before they would respond to treatment. So, you can see the circular nature of the problem.

Trust me, I know how frustrating it is. In extreme cases, you just have to separate you self.

That's why every President has "handlers" and advisers....to help talk him off the ledge, and manage their reactions to events.

Having a President with obvious mental issues is dangerous, and, exploitable by our enemies.

A dozen Austrian shrinks with rock hammers couldn't make a dent in the Orange One. It's too late, there's no helping him.

So, a lib reporter on a "mission " makes a phone call to Bellevue, from Starbucks, and, voila ,
the NYT runs with it.

If it has "legs", why not "run with it"?

Thanks. That's a cool story. But it doesn't explain why people were saying this way before before the story in the OP broke.

That was your party's message in the run up to Nov. 8th. Please, "run with it" again in 2018, with twenty Senate seats to defend.

I don't think you have to be a "mental health" expert to know that Trump has some (mental) issues.

 

That may be true but one does have to be a "mental health" expert to know what those mental issues are and what to do about them.

 

Everybody has some kind of mental issues, some are incapacitating some are not.

Helen Keller or Stevie Wonder can see Trump is a mentally and emotionally unstable imbecilic con man. No one needs 37 health experts to tell you what you can see for yourself. He's not suddenly going to smarten up. He's not magically going to become Lincoln. The party of Bush has a lot to answer for.

And yet he is way smarter than you.  Why are you typing when you should be reading?
