Noted Clinical Expert Keith Olbermann Diagnoses Donald Trump’s Level of Psychopathy

Former cable news superstar Keith Olbermann apparently has that old fire in the belly again, courtesy of the once-in-a-lifetime fireworks factory fire that is the 2016 presidential election, and has released an extended Special Comment-style rant on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s psychological status. In a twenty-minute video for Vanity Fair (in written form here), Olbermann puts Trump through the paces of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist, and if nothing else, the exercise will drill into viewers the correct pronunciation of psychopathy, which is not SIGH-koe-path-ee.

The Haring test rates subjects on a point system, with any score from 30 to 40 points rating you a psychopath.

Right off the top, Olbermann concedes that “(t)here is little worse and nothing cheesier than questioning the psychological stability of a public figure, especially a candidate for president, even in this case,” but goes ahead anyway because, and I’m paraphrasing here, Trump is su-u-u-u-ch a gaping a-hole.

You can watch the full twenty-minute video above from Vanity Fair, or read it here, or (spoiler alert) just know that Trump scored a 32 out of 40 and call it a day.
