Writing in all capital letters on Twitter this past Sunday, comedian Rosie O’Donnell slammed President-elect Donald Trump as “mentally unstable,” adding that there is “less than 3 weeks to stop him, America!”
DONALD TRUMP IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE – https://t.co/6AvhoPq1du
LESS THAN 3 WEEKS TO STOP HIM AMERICA
— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 1, 2017
O’Donnell included in her tweet a link to a CNN report that the president-elect had recently asked an author to leave his Florida golf course who wrote a biography that painted Trump in a critical light more than two decades ago.
That’s right — Harry Hurt III wrote a book loosely critical of Trump over 20 years ago, and Trump is, evidently, still fuming over it.
As CNN reports:
‘Harry Hurt III, who penned “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump,” says he was preparing for a round at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach late last week… [when] Trump had his security detail escort him and three of his friends, which included the billionaire industrialist and major Republican donor David Koch, to the parking lot.’
That’s right — Trump is seemingly so unnerved by the very existence of someone who, like Hurt, dared to speak a word against him, that not only did he kick Hurt off his golf course, he also kicked none other than conservative money man David Koch off his golf course as well.
And this is the man who is about to have control of the nation’s nuclear weapons? This man, who holds very public grudges for decades?
O’Donnell is definitely on to something in sounding an alarm about Trump’s incoming presidential administration.
And, although, O’Donnell and Trump do, indeed, have a longstanding feud of sorts, the comedian is far from alone in her grim assessment of Trump.
Indeed, there are even some mental health experts who have publicly suggested that Trump suffers from a diagnosable mental illness — “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”
Some of the symptoms of this disorder include, but are not limited to:
- Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
- Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
- Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
- Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
Indeed, “unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment” definitely applies to Trump’s intolerance of Hurt having written a book critical of the president-elect over two decades ago.
