It doesn't matter what is going on in Trump's head. We know he is unfit for office by what he is doing.

Now that we have all returned to arm-chair diagnosis, I find myself wondering if it really matters why Trump is unfit for office. Is he mentally unstable? Does he suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder? Is it age-related cognitive decline?

Who cares? It is not as though a box gets ticked off and then the 25th Amendment is magically triggered.

All the speculation around this question seems weird and a bit frivolous to me. It is a debate that might be interesting in the abstract, but which serves no practical purpose.

If you have come to the conclusion that Trump is suffering from NPD and dementia, what are you going to do with that information? How does it change anything?
