Former Obama adviser David Plouffe called Donald Trump a “psychopath” this morning on “Meet the Press,” but you would not know that for sure by reading Politico’s headline.

Some recognized it as a perfect description of the Democratic nominee for president.
Yes we are. Her name is Hillary Clinton. "Psychopath" is a good description for a woman with blood on her hands. https://t.co/hXqONYVOGz

@politico I don't think it's fair to call her a psychopath.

@politico And Trump running as well.

Lost in this is the fact that Plouffe tried to pass himself off as a psychologist:
“We have a psychopath running for president,” David Plouffe said in an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd. “I mean, he meets the clinical definition, OK?”
It's a good line. But I can't remember whether Dr. Plouffe has a MD degree in psychiatry or is a Ph.D. psychologist. https://t.co/OIKtmlaTvd
