I think this is a classic example of listening to lying liberals on mainstream media, and not hearing the other side, which often exposes their lies. I would also add: exposing darkness (good trait), peacemaking (Korea, for example, good trait), stopping bad trade deals (good trait), among others. And I will also add that Jesus said: "But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." Matthew 5:22

When Jesus said, "Judge not" he meant that when we are in a position where we need to evaluate a person's character, we must not elevate our own opinion to some sort of absolute truth. This is what Thurman does. How many reprehensible acts has Donald Trump committed in his life? How many kind and helpful things? Only God knows. But can someone claim for certain that he has never done anything kind? I would stay clear of any psychologist who makes such a claim about anyone.

I really can't think of any one thing Trump has done that wasn't purely self- interest!!! An innocent man would not continue to deny, evade, and obscure the truth !!

If President Trump actually was disturbed as Mr. Thurman claims, it logically would be evident in his policies. When we look at various dictators of the past who are thought by many to have been insane, we see that their policies looked very insane. Pres. Trump's policies look very sane indeed. <!--break-->I cannot say the same about his predecessor, Obama. For example Obama's very bizarre Iran agreement, in which we gave the world's leading sponsor of terrorism $1.5 billion and access to global financial systems. Some of the provisions of the deal were kept secret and only came out later. That deal looks literally insane to me. <!--break-->We see this pattern in certain critics of President Trump like Thurman, where they attack Pres. Trump continually on a personal level and have zippo to say about his policies, which I find very strange. <!--break-->It may be true that Pres Trump exhibits some narcissism, but that seems to be something we find in many politicians. Clinton appears to many to be very narcissistic. Narcissism is FAR more evident in Obama, who seems to be totally off the charts in that respect, than in Trump. Samuel Vaknin, Ph.D., who has written extensively about narcissism, states: “Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist.” Vaknin says that Obama’s language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. <!--break-->We never see anything like this coming from Pres. Trump: 'Former President Barack Obama's recent talk in Berlin Saturday was touted as focusing on “community leadership and civic engagement.” But his speech seemed to focus mainly on another topic: himself. The 392 references in one speech is believed to be a new record for self-referencing by Obama beating a previous record back in 2016 when he referred to himself 171 times.' <!--break-->Did Thurman ever say anything about Obama having mental problems? I don't know, but my guess is that he didn't. Actually when I see the kinds of things people like Thurman say I start wondering if they're disturbed. His claim Trump is "tearing the country down" seems mentally disturbed. What exactly does he mean by that? If he was "tearing the country down" we would be able to observe some tangible evidence of such (one would think). As I said, I cannot identify anything in Pres. Trump's actual policies that seem to be evidence of mental illness, unlike Obama. <!--break-->Maybe Thurman has absorbed the Democrats' fabrications that he is violating the Constitution in some massive way. It is very apparent at this time that people such as Schiff are pathological liars. I have a feeling Thurman believes whatever Schiff says, which would also call into question Thurman's mental state.

Why, pray tell me, all ye Progressive and Liberal folks out there in Clown World, does Orange Man have to be absolutely perfect, without spot or blemish, like he was The Lord Jesus Christ Himself? The sad and pathetic truth is that you are 100% POLITICAL in your critique of Orange Man's morality. IF Orange Man was a Demonic Rat, THEN you would love him and you'd be telling us he was the greatest thing to come along for America since Barak Hussein Obama. You can hate Orange Man all you want; I say that Orange Man Is Not So Bad. If you don't like it, you can lump it.

No one "makes" trump a monster. He does it all by himself.

Oh, here's a relevant quote from Christine Carter, another psychologist—well, actually a sociologist. What she has to say describes Thurman's behavior very well, I think. In a nutshell, I believe that Thurman is actually projecting his own shortcomings onto Trump. Anyway, here are Ms. Carter's wise words: "Although many Freudian theories have not stood the test of time, projection is still considered a textbook human behavior. I see projection at work all around me, in myself, in my friends and children, and in my clients. That doesn’t mean that we are *always* projecting when we see other people’s flaws, or when we see the ways that others can learn and improve. But when we feel particularly emotional about a situation? When we feel hooked and irrational or harshly judgmental about someone else’s shortcomings, rather than empathetic or compassionate? We are probably projecting."

Mr. Thurman sounds more like an armchair psychologist than a real one. I believe it violates professional standards to try to "evaluate" someone at a distance like he's attempting. Not only that, his black-and-white "analytical" reasoning is almost laughable. If anyone out there needs to see a psychologist, I'd definitely recommend steering clear of this egotistical quack. In addition, it appears that Thurman has already gotten his 15 minutes of fame this past week—please don't give him any more, Mr. Brown. ;)
