Psychologist: Trump “Is The Most Successful Bio-Terrorist In Human History”
Dr. John Gartner, a psychologist, psychoanalyst and former professor at the Johns Hopkins University Medical School, recently told Salon’s Chauncey DeVega that President Donald Trump is doing all he can to enable the spread of COVID-19 and will show himself “to be the most successful bio-terrorist in human history.”
- Gartner said Trump’s handling of the pandemic does not demonstrate mere incompetence, delusion or a lack of empathy: “Donald Trump's behavior with the coronavirus pandemic is intentional. He is malevolent. He is a first-degree mass murderer. This is a plan.”
- He added that the president has “admitted to trying to slow down the testing for the coronavirus,” “undermined the governors' efforts to protect the public from the virus,” and gone “so far as to encourage astroturf protests to intimidate Democratic governors into reopening for ‘the economy.’"
- Gartner also pointed to Trump’s “mass gatherings of people at his rallies and other events,” saying the president is “doing everything he can to enable the virus.”
Donald Trump, the president of the United States, is going to be the most successful bio-terrorist in human history. Let me repeat myself so there is no confusion. Donald Trump is the most successful bio-terrorist in human history. This is not an accident.
- All of this puts Trump in the company of other malignant narcissists like “Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot or Saddam Hussein,” Gartner said.
Do not forget that one of the components of malignant narcissism is sadism. Omnipotent destruction makes malignant narcissists feel powerful. This is especially true if they feel somehow disempowered or otherwise weak.
- The psychologist added that it is “very hard for most people to understand how there's a sinister way in which harming, degrading, destroying and, yes, even killing large numbers of people actually excites and arouses Donald Trump.”
It all makes him feel powerful. That excitement and arousal and empowerment is an antidote to the emptiness that he feels inside and to the humiliation and mockery that he is experiencing from his critics and the public.
