Obama Campaign Manager: We Have a 'Psychopath Running for President'

By    |   Sunday, 28 Aug 2016 11:59 AM

President Barack Obama's former campaign adviser says Donald Trump has all the traits of a "psychopath."

In a interview aired Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press," David Plouffe shocked moderator Chuck Todd with the snap armchair diagnosis.

"Basically you have a psychopath running for president," Plouffe declared in answer Todd's question about the state of the 2016 presidential race. "He meets the clinical definition."

And when Todd stopped him, asking if he was qualified to make the analysis — calling it the kind of comment "gets voters frustrated" — Plouffe doubled-down.

"Grandiose notion of self worth, pathological lying, lack of empathy and remorse — so I think he does" have the traits, he said. "But right, I don't have a degree in psychology."

Plouffe went on to predict Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton "is guaranteed at least 269" votes of the Electoral College to win the White House, and that the November vote could be a "landslide.".
