Could Donald Trump pass a sanity test?

 

Keith Olbermann used Donald Trump’s own words and actions to score the president on a sanity test. And the results were… scary.

In his latest clip for GQ’s “The Resistance” series, Olbermann claimed that Trump achieved a 32 out of 40 on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist.

“The threshold for probably being a psychopath is 30 points,” said Olbermann, adding Trump may “still finish life as high as 36 points, since two of his questions pertain to criminal record and violation of parole, and there’s plenty of time for him on both.”

Olbermann used the checklist ― a clinical tool that helps to diagnose psychopathy ― to conduct a similar assessment on Trump in July 2016. The then-presidential candidate scored equally high numbers. The difference between then and now? 

“In a president, the problem escalates to, you know, the possible end of the world,” Olbermann said.

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
