    I donít know the definition of a sociopath - itís not part of my everyday vocabulary - but Trump is astonishingly thin skinned. He doesnít appear to have any genuine self worth.

    Iím not a psychiatrist so Iíve no idea whether heís a sociopath or not. Heís clearly though, a despicable human who is totally unfit to be president of the US. The only people who canít see this are those who agree with his views on race.

    The biggest concern for us is why our Ďprime ministerí canít bring himself to utter a word of condemnation against him.

    I think the George Floyd death and his utterly pathetic reaction to coronavirus may have redefined Trump. In fact, I can offer some evidence that the American electorate are finally seeing Trump for what he is from a usually reliable source, namely the bookmakers. For a long time, Trump has been odds on to gain a second term, but now Joe Biden is actually favourite the forthcoming election. Biden is a weak opponent who has done nothing at all to gain support, so the swing has to be down to an anti-Trump faction that is hopefully gaining momentum*.

    This is one of the clearest articles I have found on how to diagnose a sociopath. To qualify, according to a top American psychologist, a person needs to schore high on at least 5 of these traits:-

    Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (exaggerates achievements and abilities)
    Preoccupied with dreams of unlimited power, success, physical attractiveness, and love
    Holds the belief that they are of special or high status and can only be understood by similar people or should only associate with those people (or institutions)
    Has a need for excessive admiration
    Possesses a sense of entitlement and expects favorable treatment or compliance
    Exploits other people to achieve personal goals
    Lacks empathy regarding the needs and feelings of other people
    Is envious of other people or thinks other people envy them
    Has arrogant behaviors and attitudes

    Sadly, I can see that Boris isn't far behind on this matrix.

    If you like, though I think you have a lot less evidence! And Elite is not in a position of immense power, ďThe Leader of the Free WorldĒ or perhaps the fascist-leaning would-be-dictator of the USA.

    Probably Dominic ordered him not to
