The Trump Administratrion
Over the last three years, the Trump administration has overseen a comprehensive dismantling of government regulations, agencies, and institutions that were designed to protect the basic rights, and the wellbeing of the individual American; be it at home, in the workplace, or as a consumer.
These attacks on our American values were designed to increase the power, and the wealth, of the individuals in the Trump administration, as well as, the special interest groups that the administration supports.

President Trump exhibits classic signs of mental illness, including 'malignant narcissism,' shrinks say
The time has come to say it: there is something psychologically wrong with the President.
The fuzzy outlines of President Trump's likely mental illness came into sharper focus this week: in two interviews with major networks, he revealed paranoia and delusion; he quadruple-downed on his fabrication that millions of people voted illegally, which demonstrated he is disconnected from reality itself; his petulant trade war with Mexico reveals that he values self-image even over national interest; his fixation with inaugural crowd size reveals a childish need for attention.
Partisans have been warning about Trump's craziness for months, but rhetoric from political opponents is easily dismissed; it's the water of the very swamp the President says he wants to drain.
But frightened by the President's hubris, narcissism, defensiveness, belief in untrue things, conspiratorial reflexiveness and attacks on opponents, mental health professionals are finally speaking out. The goal is not merely to define the Madness of King Donald, but to warn the public where it will inevitably lead.
Ex-Trump executive: I knew he was ill for last 35 years, "Narcissism impairs his ability to see reality," said Dr. Julie Futrell, a clinical psychologist, who, of course, added a standard disclaimer because she has never actually treated Trump. "So you can't use logic to persuade someone like that. Three million women marching? Doesn't move him. Advisers point out that a policy choice didn't work? He won't care. The maintenance of self-identity is the organizing principle of life for those who fall toward the pathological end of the narcissistic spectrum."
