Okay, they’re both Republicans. And one of them is running for president, probably. But come on, play along here.
Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer Tuesday said President Obama’s contention that Scott Walker needs to learn about foreign policy was borderline pathological, given the vast mess the president has made of the world.
Krauthammer, who is a psychiatrist, spoke on Fox:
I mean, we all know that Obama is a narcissist, but this is sort of bordering on the pathological. Given the wreckage that he has left America’s foreign policy in across the world, and I could go through the list of countries but it would take up the whole segment from all the way from Mali to what’s happening in Iran and Iraq and Syria right now. For him to be condescending to anybody on how to conduct foreign policy is quite remarkable.
Well, you do have to wonder a little bit about the reality testing of someone who thinks they’ve mastered a subject they seem to be flunking with gusto.
Meantime, a couple of weeks ago, when told Obama looks elegant and clean, Dr. Ben Carson pronounced: “Like most psychopaths. That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.”
Carson’s not a psychiatrist, but he is a neurosurgeon. He’s seen a lot of brains. Presumably, he knows what they’re thinking.
Okay, that doesn’t make any sense. But still, he’s a doctor.
