Don’t tell me he’s mentally ill


“Mr. Trump causes severe distress rather than experiencing it and has been richly rewarded, rather than punished, for his grandiosity, self-absorption and lack of empathy. It is a stigmatizing insult to the mentally ill (who are mostly well behaved and well meaning) to be lumped with Mr. Trump (who is neither).” – Allen Frances

 


Don’t tell me he’s mentally ill,
that humanoid up on the hill
It’s an insult to those
who suffer the throes
of diseases that siphon all will.
