By NTK Staff | 08.23.2017 @4:47pm

On MSNBC, the commentator read out the definition of a sociopath and used it to describe President Trump.

MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch described President Trump as a “sociopath,” reading a definition of the word on Wednesday.

Deutsch said that he did his “homework” and read out this definition:

What a sociopath is, a condition that prevents people from adopting to ethical and behavioral standards and community. Sociopaths are usually extremely charming and charismatic. Sociopaths often time feel entitled to certain positions, people, and things. They believe their own beliefs and opinions are the absolute authority and disregard others. They’re rarely shy and insecure and at a loss for words. They have trouble suppressing emotional responses like anger and impatience or annoyance. They do bizarre, risky, and outrageous things without assessing repercussions. They’re professional liars. They fabricate stories and make outlandish, untruthful statements, and they get comfortable with their lying. They get bored easily and require constant stimulation. Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing guilt or shame for their actions. They’re manipulative. They may try to influence and dominate people to gain positions of leadership. They have a hard time dealing with criticism.

“What is wrong with [Trump]?” Deutsch asked. “So many of the traits of a sociopath, this man is displaying.”

Deutsch pulled the definition, almost word-for-word, from a WikiHow article on sociopathy.
