He's fucking nuts, according to science

If you ask most Trump supporters what Hillary voters felt like after the election, they'll probably say we were crying precious little snowflake tears because we didn't get exactly what we wanted. And now a scary alpha male was going to burst our delicate little gentrified urban bubbles by harnessing the righteous anger of a newly galvanized army of American patriots who were sick and tired of being called ignorant just because they think the Bible is the inerrant, ancient word of God, even though it contains at least a dozen clear references to Zubaz.

 

Oh, no. That's more or less how we felt when George W. Bush was elected.

 

This time around it was more like being in the studio audience for The Dating Game while some poor 19-year-old woman is trying to decide between two perfectly nice, ordinary guys and what we can all clearly see with our own horrified eyes is Subway's Jared. We're jumping up and down waving our arms and screaming at her, but he just keeps saying what an unbelievable time she'll have, claiming he's worth TEN BILLION DOLLARS, saying that his preternaturally tiny hands and feet belie his giant antelope cock, and so forth.

 

So despite everything you know and your sincere attempts to warn her, she picks Jared. She thinks she's going to have the time of her life, but you know she's gonna spend the next two weeks in sunny Acapulco drenched in creamy Italian sauce and shame. 

 

You feel a mixture of terror and pity, but the last thing you feel is surprise.

 

So, yeah, hearing at this late stage that a group of mental health professionals at a recent psychiatry conference at Yale University declared that Donald Trump has a "dangerous mental illness" is just a wee bit anticlimactic.

 

But for those who still need Jared to metaphorically drape them in ever more expansive layers of meats and cheeses, here are a couple of excerpts from a UK Independent story on the conference. Enjoy these. Truly:

 

"James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the 'most dangerous people in society', including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the 'dangerousness' of Mr Trump.

 

"'I’ve worked with some of the most dangerous people our society produces, directing mental health programmes in prisons,' he said.

 

"'I’ve worked with murderers and rapists. I can recognise dangerousness from a mile away. You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is'."

 

And ...

 

"Chairing the event, Dr Bandy Lee, assistant clinical professor in the Yale Department of Psychiatry, said: 'As some prominent psychiatrists have noted, [Trump’s mental health] is the elephant in the room. I think the public is really starting to catch on and widely talk about this now.'"
