☺I missed this on Lawrence O'Donnell when it was aired in March, 2016. It featured two experts on narcissism I wasn't familiar with.

I posted something not about Donald Trump on Daily Kos for a change:
Yesterday I called into the Thom Hartmann progressive radio show because he was talking about the Michelle Wolf monologue and invited listeners to call in. I actually got on the air, my first on talk radio.
Thom also went to Michigan State. Like many people, he didn't know who Aunt Lydia from "Handmaid's Tale" was and why likening her and Sarah Sanders (my Sunday Daily Kos article) was a sharp barbed comparison. I explained it to him and likened her to a male Simon Legree: what he was to slaves she was to the handmaids.
Thom has family in Portland and I am hoping to persuade him to have me on his show to discuss Trumpolgy as an “ expert” on Donald Trump’s malignant narcissism the next time he visits here.
After the show, I sent Thom a Tweet which he saw and responded to.
Because of our Michigan State University connection - he went there eight years after I did - I Tweeted him a link to today’s Kos article too.
Thom and I have something of a Twitter relationship as he generally “likes” the Tweets I send him.
Thom Hartmann is a well known progressive voice on the radio and in liberal circles. He has 6.25 million listeners a week and his show on Sirrus is one of the top progressive talk radio programs. He has authored many books and he has just starting publishing articles on AlterNet. We may have unknowingly crossed paths during the anti-war protests because he was a member of Students for a Democratic Society(SDS) and while not a member myself I knew a few of their most active, and notorious, members. It is very likely he and I participated in some of the same rallies and marches.
