To mentally healthy people, megalomaniacs appear intellectually inconsistent, hypocritical, and irrational. They say and do things that defy logic, reason, and even reality. The word crazy is often used to describe them, and appropriately so. Megalomaniacs appear this way because anything that contradicts the thoughts currently running through their minds is immediately discounted as immaterial even if spoken or done previously by the megalomaniac himself. Donald Trump is a classic example of this cognitive dissonance.
Yesterday, America’s megalomaniacal President cheered the passage of a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives which would effectively repeal the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), strip millions of low-income people from their heath insurance, and impose an unsustainable financial burden upon hospitals and medical service providers. Shortly afterwards, he praised Australia’s government-funded universal healthcare system – even more encompassing than the ACA – in a meeting with that nation’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. See:
