Stanley Renshon on The Thought Project - Episode 88


Stanley Renshon is a professor of political science at Lehman College and The Graduate Center, CUNY. He is also a trained psychoanalyst who has used these skills in his examination of four U.S. presidents: George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald J. Trump, whom Renshon examines in his latest book: The Real Psychology of the Trump Presidency. In this podcast, the first of two, Dr. Renshon explains how a president scholar also trained in clinical psychology and who is a certified psychoanalyst psychoanalyzes a president like Donald Trump from a distance. Renshon says about the 45th president: “Literally, there's never been a president quite like Donald Trump, and my guess is that it's highly unlikely there'll ever be another one like him again. He really is a black swan of presidencies. He's unique and very consequential.”‚Äč
