828. Proxy

From Wikipedia:
Fabricated and Induced Illness (Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy)

In FII a caregiver feigns or induces an illness in another person, usually her or his child, to gain attention and sympathy as the "worried" parent. Although Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSbP) cases with feigned or induced physical illness receive the most attention, it is also possible in parents who emotionally abuse their child, then claim psychiatric and/or genetic problems.

FII is a form of child abuse.....
Doesn't this sound like the way the psychopath in the White House treats the country?
