This newspaper got some attention six days ago — when Mr. Trump first 
launched his attacks on Charm City — for describing this president’s 
shortcomings in unfiltered, unequivocal terms. But that missed an 
important point that was so vividly on display Thursday: He lacks human 
empathy. Psychiatry has a name for that condition. It’s called 
antisocial personality disorder. But taking partisan delight at the 
suffering of Baltimoreans? That is not the action of a rodent. (As PETA 
chastised us this week, rats actually care about each other.) Nor can it 
be explained by mental aberration. This is the behavior of a jerk, a 
clod, a dolt, a schmuck.
