The man in the suit here is a malignant narcissist. When I first saw this picture of Donald Trump giving a “thumbs up” sign as he posed with a baby who survived the murderous monster in El Paso a couple of weeks ago, I assumed that even his supporters would be horrified. To anyone who understands normal human reactions, it is a shocking demonstration of a man who believes the world revolves around him, but I’ve been surprised to see some people say his reaction was perfectly normal. The truth is that it’s the pose of a man without empathy — someone who is so accustomed to trying to promote his own empty false self that he doesn’t even know how to fake the proper response to such a horrific event. An emotionally healthy person would focus on the child at such a moment, but Trump looks as though he’s at a campaign event with the child of a happy donor. This has nothing to do with ideology or party. The man is mentally ill.
