I know Trump keeps going on about dishonest media, but it is interesting how differently some media outlets report on Trump. I like to read news from all around the globe, and when all of them are reporting on something Trump has screwed up, then you go to Fox News and either they haven't mentioned it or have put a positive spin on it.

 

I think I'm pretty well informed and do like to looks at sources quoted for news stories, but for some people who rely on only one place for there news, you can see how they can have no idea what is really happening.

When media, foreign leaders, his GOP peers, and nationals all have a similar set of concerns, lots of weight there. That in itself will probe rile him up more, adding more fuel to the fire

From Entertainment Weekly, "Last night on late night"

CNN's Jake Tapper on Conan: Trump 'seems to thrive on chaos'

"I like news. This is exhausting, though," CNN anchor Jake Tapper remarked of Donald Trump’s presidency on Conan Tuesday night. But he suggests this heightened chaos is the product of the POTUS himself.

"The President seems to thrive on chaos," Tapper told Conan O’Brien. "It was like that during the campaign. It obviously worked. And it’s like that now. He also seems to like having different competing groups of power competing against each other and we’d heard about that from his business enterprise that he liked different people competing with each other, bouncing off each other. Obviously, The Apprentice was like that, as well."

Tapper is making a bigger name for himself during the era of President Trump, thanks to his fierce interviews and critical eye — even when it comes to calling out his own network.

"I think we can all agree that we’re not used to this level of confusion and chaos and different messages coming from the White House, the president," he reflected on covering the president. Pointing to Michael Flynn, the national security adviser who lost his post after misleading White House officials over Russia, Tapper said, "We were told that General Flynn was fired, then we were told he resigned, then we were told he was fired. These are all on-the-record statements made by different people in the administration. It’s very confusing."

Sadly, Tapper didn’t offer much hope that the chaos will end anytime soon. "If you’re looking for me to reassure you, I cannot. I cannot be that reassuring. I would like to cover the policies that his voters voted for him to carry out, whether it was having to do with trade or draining the swamp or the border or counter-terrorism… but there is so much else going on beyond that. Tweets about Meryl Streep and this chaos now with his national security adviser being fired four weeks into his term."

New York Times, opinion page, argument between two sets of mental health professionals about Donald Trump.

"Mental Health Professionals Warn About Trump"
To the Editor:

Charles M. Blow (column, nytimes.com, Feb. 9) describes Donald Trump’s constant need “to grind the opposition underfoot.” As mental health professionals, we share Mr. Blow’s concern.

Silence from the country’s mental health organizations has been due to a self-imposed dictum about evaluating public figures (the American Psychiatric Association’s 1973 Goldwater Rule). But this silence has resulted in a failure to lend our expertise to worried journalists and members of Congress at this critical time. We fear that too much is at stake to be silent any longer.

Mr. Trump’s speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists).

In a powerful leader, these attacks are likely to increase, as his personal myth of greatness appears to be confirmed. We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.

Lance Dodes

Joseph Schachter

Beverly Hills, Calif.

Dr. Dodes is a retired assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Schachter is a former chairman of the Committee on Research Proposals, International Psychoanalytic Association. The letter was also signed by 33 other psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers.

"An Eminent Psychiatrist Demurs on Trump’s Mental State"

To the Editor:

Fevered media speculation about Donald Trump’s psychological motivations and psychiatric diagnosis has recently encouraged mental health professionals to disregard the usual ethical constraints against diagnosing public figures at a distance. They have sponsored several petitions and a Feb. 14 letter to The New York Times suggesting that Mr. Trump is incapable, on psychiatric grounds, of serving as president.

Most amateur diagnosticians have mislabeled President Trump with the diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder. I wrote the criteria that define this disorder, and Mr. Trump doesn’t meet them. He may be a world-class narcissist, but this doesn’t make him mentally ill, because he does not suffer from the distress and impairment required to diagnose mental disorder.

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).

Bad behavior is rarely a sign of mental illness, and the mentally ill behave badly only rarely. Psychiatric name-calling is a misguided way of countering Mr. Trump’s attack on democracy. He can, and should, be appropriately denounced for his ignorance, incompetence, impulsivity and pursuit of dictatorial powers.

His psychological motivations are too obvious to be interesting, and analyzing them will not halt his headlong power grab. The antidote to a dystopic Trumpean dark age is political, not psychological.

ALLEN FRANCES

Coronado, Calif.

The writer, professor emeritus of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical College, was chairman of the task force that wrote the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (D.S.M.-IV).

Isn't Allen Frances doing the same armchair diagnosing that he is so critical of others doing?
