He shouts “I’m not crazy!” Then, he continues raging. “I know what I’m doing!
“You can’t tell me!” and “I’ll do what I want!” Then he throws himself onto the floor and starts pounding it with both his hands and his legs. If this is a grocery store and he is two years old, that is still not acceptable behavior. If Donald Trump did this, it would have been about 72 years of unacceptable. Now clearly, we do not know this is how his rages play out, but we do know what people around him have said about his livid rants.
The ex-president hit the ceiling when he found out that the House January 6 Select Committee wants documents that delve into his mental stability. Even though two Republicans sit on the committee, Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), he called it “leftist.”
Then, he started pouting and is vowing to never cooperate. He says that the committee is “pathetic:”
‘Unfortunately, this partisan exercise is being performed at the expense of long-standing legal principles of privilege.’
‘Executive privilege will be defended, not just on behalf of my Administration and the Patriots who worked beside me, but on behalf of the Office of the President of the United States and the future of our Nation.’
This is the statement in full that he released:
‘INBOX: He’s afraid.’
The ex-president’s niece, Mary Trump, is the daughter of his older brother. She also holds a doctorate in clinical psychology. She tweeted:
‘In order to prevent one person from having a temper tantrum—which he’s going to have either way—we’re continuing to put thousands of people at risk. Not acceptable.’
Apparently, Trump throws “some kind of tantrum on a nearly daily basis.” Why? MSNBC News wrote:
‘Without going into details, the Republican issued a written statement late in the afternoon denouncing a “leftist” congressional committee engaged in a “partisan sham,” which he intends to contest by way of “executive privilege.”‘
Mary Trump said that the 2016 election when he won was the “worst night of my life,” according to the BBC:
‘We should be judged harshly. I grieve for our country.’
In her book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, she describes him, Academia:
‘This is far beyond garden-variety narcissism. Donald is not simply weak, his ego is a fragile thing that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down that he is nothing of what he claims to be.’
Yale psychiatrist Bandy X Lee supports Mary Trump’s claims “that the president – her uncle – may have severe mental health issues and is not fit to lead the US,” according to The Independent:
‘His pathologies and behaviours are so bizarre that “coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neuro-physical tests that he’ll never sit for”.’
