Broadly speaking, you won't get very good results from coddling an aggressive, delusional person with reasonably high intelligence, like Trump and some of his supporters. You also won't be doing the supporters any favors by indulging in their guilt trips or by letting them set the terms of the debate.

I can't tell if the administration has contrived this persecution fantasy as a tool to manipulate public opinion, or if they really believe it, but my experience with such fantasies suggests that people defend them furiously.

Is Barack Obama Mentally Stable? More Questions Regarding His Sanity By Expert Opinion

Quote:
Psychologist Dr. Gina Loudon recently expressed concern about President Obama’s ‘erratic’ behavior as possibly not being ‘sane’

There's plenty of others. Plus plenty of accusations of Obama being a narcissist, Obama being a dictator, being like Hitler etc. What's amusing is that Trump detractors think there's something new about these things being said about a president.

Oh yeah, this too: 51 REASONS TO IMPEACH OBAMA | Petition2Congress
https://www.petition2congress.com/9248/ ... each-obama

Tons of this stuff.

There is one big difference between the accusation of fascism against Obama and the accusations of fascism against Trump: those against Obama were based on nearly nothing and superficial things like the "socialist" word in the socialist national party, those against Trump are based on deeper and meaningful things like the content of what he actually is saying been greatly similar to what peoples like Hitler were saying. Exclusive nationalism; manipulating peoples toward genocide since the dawn of humanity.


What, "America first"?
First off, that was a campaign slogan. Call me a skeptic but I'll need a few years before I'm convinced there's any real and lasting substance to it. However any President of the United States, past, present, and future, should be putting American first. Calling that a prelude to genocide is a bit paranoid.

I don't really talk about "America first", but rather the exclusion inherent in the discourse of Trump toward many population by suggesting that they are not "real americans" or outright traitors toward the nation. Peoples like muslims, illegal immigrants and even simply those who do not think like him.


ILEGAL immigrants.
I bolded the important part for you.

I hate giving "illness" diagnosis to people who are simply assholes. Whether it's narcissism or sociopath, it seems assholes don't actually suffer from their supposed "illness". They tend to do well in our society while they make others suffer. To libel these successful assholes as "mentally ill" does a disservice to people with real conditions that make them suffer and not cope in this life.

I really think people can be both. Take me for instance; I've been called a sick as*hole more times than I can count.
:D

They shouldn't focus so much on DJT.

Quote:
First, here's what Kelly said last Saturday at a local Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner:

President Obama himself said he was going to stay in Washington until his daughter graduated. I think we ought to pitch in to let him go someplace else, because he is only there for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to run a shadow government that is going to totally upset the new agenda...

Reached by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Kelly's office insisted the comments were supposed to be private and that he was merely reflecting Republicans' frustration with the deep state.


I see plenty of worthy subjects for their analysis. Just like DJT, Rep. Kelly's staff have to cover for his clear insanity.
Quote:
Kelly's office then clarified to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he doesn't really think Obama is running a “shadow government” — or, at least, that Obama is “personally operating” it.
