David Plouffe, President Obama’s former campaign manager, managed to draw the disapproval of NBC News political director Chuck Todd Sunday when Plouffe claimed that Donald Trump was a “psychopath.”
“I mean, basically, we have a psychopath running for president,” he told Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I mean, he meets the clinical definition, okay?”

At that point Todd interrupted him to take issue with his guest “diagnosing people on air,” adding, “I assume you don’t have a degree in psychology.”
Then Todd observed that supporters on both sides are engaging in too much conclusion-jumping.
“Is that fair? We’re jumping to conclusions here,” Todd said. “I think this is what gets voters a little frustrated with this campaign.”
But Plouffe plowed ahead anyway and tried to back up his “diagnosis” of the Republican presidential nominee by checking off a number of “psychopathic symptoms.”
“The grandiose notion of self-worth, pathological lying, lack of empathy and remorse,” he said, all sounding as though they could equally apply to Hillary Clinton or Obama — or pretty much any politician for that matter.
Plouffe eventually admitted that he lacked a degree in Psychology.
