I’ve read sadism, executive function disorder, narcissism, paranoia, etc.UD will wade into the stream and propose: hebephrenia.

Remarks of his today in response to a baby crying during his speech.

Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around like — don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy and that’s what we want… Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here. That’s all right. Don’t worry. I, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK.


Hebephrenia Update:

Charlie Black, a longtime GOP strategist, [commented: “He’s] Donald and he’s going to operate stream of consciousness a lot of times. You just hope he’ll have more days on message than days on consciousness.”

  1. Bernard Carroll Says:

    Then add in flight of ideas, derailment, knight’s moves, and poverty of content of speech… all ominous signals of a tenuous cognitive style. Sooner or later, the knots will come untied.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Yes. I think a lot of people are already a little anxious about what will happen when the pressure gets too much and Trump implodes. I don’t think that will be very pretty.
