It is time for media pundits and ordinary citizens to stop declaring that Donald Trump is a liar, a bully and a narcissist. Instead, they should recognize, more with sorrow than condemnation, that the man is mentally ill.
His unbridled self-regard has reached a stage that renders him genuinely delusional. He will say, believe, and do anything that soothes his fractured ego.
If he were not such a grave threat to our form of government and our way of life, he would be more deserving of our compassion than of our contempt.
