Two states have chosen Donald Trump as the Republican front-runner in the 2016 Primary election. It leads any reasonable person to believe the majority of voting Republicans in South Carolina and New Hampshire have severe mental illness or they are intellectually retarded. Then again, they are registered Republicans so I guess, it’s pretty clear it’s both.
Mental illness is real, this I know for a fact. Having worked in mental health, I can tell you that they walk amongst you frequently. Many of the people with mental illness I have encountered were bible thumpers, so that checks off that theory.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Donald Trump suffers from Narcissism if that wasn’t apparent. The man has sued everyone he has ever had a disagreement with. He is currently filing a lawsuit against Ted Cruz over a political ad.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.
Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around talk therapy (psychotherapy). –Mayo Clinic
Over 30% of adults in the US self-report mental illness. These are just the people that realize they have a problem. A person like Donald Trump does not know they have a problem. So they wouldn’t report it, the number of actual mentally ill people in the US is very high. Some have called it an epidemic.
Not only did states close mental health facilities, but many that need to be medicated are unable to pay for it. The state mental health facilities may have been inhumane at times, but instead of shutting them down there should have been corrections made to provide quality healthcare. In any case, apparently the mentally ill crazies in New Hampshire and South Carolina are voting.
Updated 2/21 Disclaimer: In no way am I making fun of mental illness, just people that vote for Donald Trump. I am an advocate for mental illness sufferers. Mental illness is real.
