CNN political analyst Ryan Lizza said Wednesday that Donald Trump needs a “psychological analyst.”
On a segment about Trump securing the freedom of American UCLA athletes arrested in China “CNN Newsroom With John Berman and Poppy Harlow,” host John Berman asked, “Do we think this is happening in a vacuum for his ongoing feud with many athletes in multiple sports over the last month?”
Lizza responded, “Huh, I hadn’t thought of it that way, John, to be honest. Maybe that’s in the back of his mind, but I think when he does something, he gets very agitated if he does not get an outpouring of support and acclaim.”
“You know, sometimes my title here is ‘political analyst.’ Sometimes you need a psychological analyst for Trump. But he does seem to have a—be very needy when it comes to appreciation and praise for something he believes he did that deserves it,” he added.
