An upcoming documentary that makes a case against Donald Trump from a psychological standpoint released a damning first look this week. That trailer alone should be enough for Americans to make sure he never gets a second term.
For years, Americans have been warned that Trump is psychologically unfit for office. Among the voices who have stressed this is Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway, who appears in the documentary.
“Donald Trump is like a practical joke that got out of hand,” Conway says in the trailer, which opens with Trump claiming that “the American Dream is dead” and him telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe that he’s “speaking with myself” when asked who he is consulting with the most.
If that’s not disturbing enough, the documentary features several mental health experts relaying their analysis of Trump’s fitness for office.
Dr. John Gardner, a psychologist at Johns Hopkins University, said that Trump “is the most documented liar in human history.”
Retired psychiatrist professor Dr. Lance Dodes identified Trump as a con man and a sociopath.
“Sociopaths can be successful because they’re con men,” he said.
Indeed, Dodes recently warned that Trump will destroy democracy and decency in his quest to stay in power, even if it means creating a “Reichstag” incident as Hitler did in Nazi Germany to seize it.
Dr. Justin Frank, former Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the George Washington University Medical Center, uttered a single “No” to the question of whether Trump is fit to be president.
“Trump is a sadist,” Frank continued. “A misogynist. A racist.”
Friendly to autocrats around the globe, Trump has copied their style to gin up his hateful base.
Dodes concluded by saying mental health professionals have a duty to speak up because our society is at risk.
Here’s the video:
Keep in mind that Trump has been attacking former Vice President Joe Biden by calling his cognitive health into question, but Trump’s psychological unfitness for office has been obvious since before he took office and continues to get worse. Biden may slip up or stutter here and there. He may be forgetful at times. But he’s not a sociopath like Trump.
It’s certainly a damning trailer. Now just imagine how damning the entire documentary will be.
