Country would be in trouble with narcissist

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a mental illness that can be severe. NPD traits include: extreme self-focus; lack of empathy; hypersensitivity; rage; inability to sustain relationships; self-admiration; exploitative; haughty; braggart; self-claimed expert on all matters; exaggerating; no empathy for others; uses people; uses distortion; makes up facts and illusions; disregard for others’ feelings; discards advice; feeling sexually superior to all others; loves self over all others. This certified mental illness seems to be evident in one of our nation’s candidates. I spoke with a friend, a psychiatrist, about NPD. When asked for his opinion on the seriousness of this national figure’s NPD, and giving him a scale of 1-10 (10 being the worst), my friend rated that person as a “12.” The obvious question is, could this person make irrational, dangerous decisions? This country could be in real trouble next year if elected.
