Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

No, Donald J. Trump is not crazy. He's "crazy like a fox" according to world renowned psychiatrist Keith Ablow. Donald Trump may do things differently than anyone has ever done things, but it's not just "off the cuff" as it may look. Trump has a genius mind, and everything he does is by design.

You can't run a multinational corporation, enjoy the respect, and love of your children, and your wife, and recruit to your administration, which by the way, you happen to be occupying, because you defeated 16 Republican primary opponents, and the heir-apparent to the Democratic administration, and then be called unbalanced. He's quite balanced! He's achieving things no one else has achieved. That doesn't mean he's usual, he can be extraordinary, and he can have a very different approach, but to call him crazy, would be well, craziness you know.

Donald cheats and he lies. Lazy people, amoral people, have found this to be a royal road to money and power for 5,000 years and more.

Prisons are an ancient institution, too.

Trump is the stupid persons idea of a smart person.

He can put it to bed and release his college transcripts.

"Keith Russell Ablow is an American psychiatrist, author, and television personality. He is also a contributor on psychiatry for Fox News Channel and TheBlaze. Ablow resigned as a member of the American Psychiatric Association in 2011..."

" His 2011 book, The 7,[8] co-authored by Glenn Beck, was released in January 2011 and was a New York Times bestseller. In November, St. Martin's Press published a second Ablow book, Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony: A Psychological Portrait.

Ablow serves as chief spokesperson and brand ambassador for Golo, a company that sells a weight loss supplement.[9][10] Progressive media watchdog group Media Matters for America has raised questions about whether Ablow's endorsement of Golo violates Fox News' policy against product endorsements.[11]

According to the Associated Press, Ablow "freely mixes psychiatric assessments with political criticism, a unique twist in the realm of cable news commentary that some medical colleagues find unethical."[15] Ablow has, for instance, frequently diagnosed former President Obama as having "abandonment issues" without ever having met or treated the former president.[15]

Ablow has asserted that Obama dislikes the United States, that he prefers Africa to the United States, and wants the United States to dissolve.[15] Ablow promoted a conspiracy theory that Obama wanted Ebola to spread to America because he wanted America to suffer as much as poor countries.[16][17]

He publicly speculated that Vice President Joe Biden had dementia after his 2012 VP debate performance.[18]

Ford Vox, a staff physiatrist at the Shepherd Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta, said that Ablow's attempts to connect his political views to medical analysis "is really just irresponsible and it's embarrassing for physicians in general".[15]

Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, chairman of psychiatry at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, and past president of the American Psychiatric Association, said that "It is shameful and unfortunate that he is given a platform by Fox News or any other media organization. Basically he is a narcissistic self-promoter of limited and dubious expertise."[15]

Ablow has promoted pseudoscientific commentaries about gender identity.[19]

During the 2012 Republican primary, Ablow wrote a column arguing that Newt Gingrich's three marriages actually made him more qualified to be president. He wrote: "When three women want to sign on for life with a man who is now running for president, I worry more about whether we'll be clamoring for a third Gingrich term, not whether we'll want to let him go after one."[26]

The column was criticized, with Rod Dreher of The American Conservative commenting thus: "Oh for frack's sake. At some point, you have to wonder when shamelessness crosses the line from character defect to psychopathology. If only Dr. Leo Spaceman were a Republican, he could have a lucrative career on Fox."[27]

In 2012, he said that the 2012 World Cup was a a plot by President Obama to distract America from what Ablow believed were Obama scandals.[28][29]

A psychiatrist of Albows status is just below Dr. Phil. You should be embarrassed to even post this as a serious source.

Right? Jest thinks he can drop a Keith Ablow steamer on the sidewalk and think everyone will mistake it for Jello Pudding. Again, a stupid person's idea of a smart post.

Oh....I'm.....so....yawn....outraged.

Silly rabbit.

I remain to be convinced that a high IQ is the overriding criterion for being a good President.

Confirmation bias in action.
Has this genius stopped ISIS like he said? No.
He is a genius pied piper for idiots though.

"world renowned psychiatrist Keith Ablow"

LOL. That's the funniest thing I've read all year. He's just another performance artist.

Trump is a genius, while his actions seem insane he has managed to single handily slow the worldwide spread of right wing nationalism.

Everywhere in the world conservative politicians are loosing ground and elections. Trump did that.

He is making a noble sacrifice, while he plays the fool and destroys his own legacy he has exposed the end state of right wing nationalism. The only supporters of right wing nationalism now are the far fringe who are daily alienating themselves.

I thought that at first when he was running in the GOP primary. That's a great point that he is helping to thwart the alt-right faster than I could ever imagine, but it's not intentional.

He's a dystopian Chauncey Gardiner

Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon were all very smart too. And very evil.

Again, intelligence and evil are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.

People seem unable to grasp this concept.

The combination is especially lethal.

I just love how you liberals judge his intelligence when none of you can hold a candle to all he has accomplished. Please don't give the tiered old line of he started at the top with a million + dollars because how many people have become rich winning a lottery only to be pore again in 5 years or how many athletes have made millions of dollars only to end up poor.

"Please don't give the tiered old line of he started at the top with a million + dollars"

How about the $14 million dollar loan from dad? (over $31 million in today's dollars)

How about the $3.4 million daddy bought in Donny's casino chips, without playing a single hand?

Could you accomplish a little more with today's equivalent of $35 million?

I like how neither of your "because" reasons are people that started at the top.

If you inherit a billion dollars you too can enter politics. And maybe even become President with zero political experience.

How about the "tiered(sic) old line" of how many bankruptcies, lawsuits, swindles and scams that Trump used to hang on to that wealth.
