Dr. Lance Dodes, former assistant psychiatry professor at Harvard Medical School and contributor to The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, warned back in 2017 that our sitting president is off his rocker.
But in all seriousness, Dodes claimed that early on that Trump’s mental state could (and would) probably worsen over the course of his presidency—and he’s definitely right. It’s gotten worse.
“He can’t stand anything that disagrees with him, and the more you challenge him, the more unhinged he becomes, the more paranoid, and the more violent, potentially,” Dodes told MSNBC (via Newsweek).
Now Trump has started another controversy following his statement that anyone not siding with Israel is a “disloyal” Jew, and strangely looking to the heavens whilst referring to himself as “the chosen one” in reference to trade relations with China.
“There’s something fundamentally different about him from normal people,” Dodes said on the matter. “It’s a psychotic-like state. The more you press him, the more you see how disorganized and empty he is. The more he flies into a disorganized rage.”
