President Biden’s recent tone-deaf story conflating a small house fire to the devastating wildfire in Lahaina, Hawaii, made me wonder … what the heck is wrong with that guy?!

In case you somehow missed it, here is the President failing badly at showing empathy for the victims of a horrific tragedy …

More here:

And before that, President “Compassion” told reporters “no comment” on the fire as he lounged on a beach.

The image of “good ol’ Uncle Joe” was always a fabrication pushed by the media. As Biden ages, his ability to keep up the charade is diminishing almost as rapidly as his cognitive ability.

Even normies who don’t really pay attention to politics are starting to notice his lack of compassion and inability to feign even a smidgeon of concern unless he can somehow shift the focus to himself.

We’ve seen Biden do this again and again over the years — when 13 servicemembers died at the Abbey Gate last year, he brought up the death of his son Beau to Gold Star families and survivors. When someone dies unexpectedly, he talks about how he lost his first wife and infant daughter shortly after he was first elected to the U.S. Senate.

It always has to be about him.

Does that mean that the sitting President is a narcissist … or worse, a sociopath? Maybe.

While it’s not possible to diagnose the President without an examination by a psychiatrist or psychologist, an article in Psychology Today provides a short checklist of traits that are indicators of both personality disorders.

As the article notes, while sociopaths qualify as narcissists, not all narcissists are sociopaths.

So, does Joe Biden exhibit characteristics of either a narcissist or a sociopath?

Let’s examine.

A diagnosis of “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” is made when an individual exhibits at least five of the following traits:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance and exaggerates achievements and talents [Check]
  • Dreams of unlimited power, success, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love [Check]
  • Lacks empathy for the feelings and needs of others [Check]
  • Requires excessive admiration [Check]
  • Believes he or she is special and unique and can be understood only by, or should associate only with, other special or high-status people (or institutions) [Check]
  • Unreasonably expects special, favorable treatment or compliance with his or her wishes [Check]
  • Exploits and takes advantage of others to achieve personal ends [Check]
  • Envies others or believes they’re envious of him or her [Check]
  • Has “an attitude” of arrogance or acts that way [Check]

Whereas, someone with “Antisocial Personality Disorder” must have a conduct disorder by 15 years old and show at least four of these traits:

  • Doesn’t sustain consistent work (or schoolwork) [Unknown]
  • Doesn’t conform to social norms, including unlawful behavior, whether or not arrested [Check]
  • Disregards the truth as indicated by repeated lying, conning, using aliases, not paying debts [Check]
  • Impulsive or fails to plan ahead; moves around without a goal [Unknown]
  • Irritable and aggressive: e.g., fights or assaults [Check]
  • Recklessly disregards the safety of self or others [Unknown]
  • Consistently irresponsible, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations [Unknown]
  • Lacks remorse and feels justified in having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another [Check]
  • Doesn’t sustain monogamy for more than one year [Unknown]

In my reckoning, Biden was 9 for 9 on the Narcissism scale and hit the minimum of 4 traits on the Sociopath scale.

Unfortunately, it’s difficult to assess his work ethic since pretty much his entire career has been in public office and it’s easy enough to avoid the workload when you can pass off the jobs to staffers.

Perhaps Joe has no compunction in doing so, after all, he’s stolen other people’s work for years.

Jill Biden’s ex-husband Bill Richardson, who claims that Joe had an affair with his wife while he was running for Senate in 1972, says that Joe stole his amusing high school football story just minutes after he told it to Joe.

His stories that can be easily verified are lies, too. Take the Amtrak story…

Joe Biden has lied about his record in college, plagiarized from speeches and public statements of other politicians, and even lied about the personal tragedies his family has endured.

For years, Biden said that his wife and daughter were killed by a “drunk driver”… but that isn’t true.

And, of course, he continues to exploit his son, Beau Biden’s death at every opportunity.

Meanwhile, this is the same callous fiend that refused to acknowledge his seventh grandchild until he was shamed into doing so by Maggie Habermann in the pages of the New York Times

And let’s not forget that while he continues to profess that he’s a family man who loves his son Hunter sooo much, he’s also the guy that has tied his own personal finances to him, enabled him to pursue sketchy business deals with foreign governments while he was Vice President, and demanded half of his son’s income, according to Hunter.

It seems like Joe was okay with letting Hunter be the bag man for the family influence-peddling business.

If even half of what Hunter says about his dad in his text messages is true, Joe is not a great father.

Perhaps it’s because he has the traits of a narcissistic sociopath.

I’ve told you what I think … but what do you think?
