Keith Olbermann Gives Trump a Clinical Sanity Test — and the results are worse than you’d think

Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann attempted to understand Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump this week through the lens of clinical psychology and determined that the candidate could not pass one of the most widely used “sanity” assessments used to predict criminal and antisocial behavior.

In a column for Vanity Fair that was published on Thursday, Olbermann noted that Trump had repeatedly questioned the sanity of his rivals, including Glenn Beck, Ben Carson, Barack Obama, Ted Cruz and Megyn Kelly.

To evaluate Trump, Olbermann chose a test developed by Canadian criminal psychologist Robert D. Hare. “The Hare Psychopathy Checklist,” Olbermann explained, “serves as a kind of triage device to separate the injured from the tripping from the psychopathic.”

The test awards points for 20 different personality traits.
