Stop (Mis)Diagnosing Trump

Hi. I am mentally ill. Here are some things that I am not:
* capricious
* greedy
* self-centred
* wilfully racist
* a proponent of libertarianism
* unfair, save to the wealthy and powerful
* inspired by autocrats

trump Is not guided by any mental illness. Racism is not a mental illness. Neither is greed. Nor is obsession with autocracy. None of these things or other behavioural problems present in That Man can be found in the DSM.

Please. Stop equating his disgusting ideology with mental illness. There is a canyon of a difference between the two.

He makes choices. We live with monsters in our heads.
