Forensic Psychiatrist: Trump Is ‘Embodiment of Healthy Narcissism’

WelnerDuring a panel discussion Monday night, guest Dr. Michael Welner, a forensic psychiatrist and Trump supporter, explained to CNN host Don Lemon that Donald Trump was the “embodiment of healthy narcissism.”

Asked directly if Trump was a narcissist, Welner responded: “He’s an exceptionalist and there’s something about American exceptionalism at its core that sees itself excellent relative to the world and he sees himself excellent compared to the people that he competes with.”

He added that Trump’s attitude was the “embodiment of healthy narcissism, a belief that you are better.” He cited Trump’s “boldness to succeed because he dares” as an example of “where his narcissism is healthy.”
