Trump said that he knew, and didn't know, on the very same day. But, you see, that's not a contradiction to the President. You must be saying to yourself: "Of course it's a lie. Both stories can't be true." Right? Wrong! Not to Donald Trump!
The most "wicked" symptom, probably, is that you can tell that your thinking norms have changed. One part of your brain sees with perfect clarity, another part is thinking things that are impossible.
Dr. Lee makes sense of Trump's pathology. She defines him medically, and so well that we begin to feel that there may be a solution, an antidote, to Trump and Trumpism. They are diseases.
