Idiocy. A severely pathological psychological disorder should automatically disqualify individuals from positions of high influence.

That's just a really sad, stereotypical parrot-echo-chamber thing to say.
We as a nation really are doing okay.
EGO and Narcissism aside, our country is still recovering from 9/11, and from 2008.....those two recent occasions that someone threw a wrench in the works and stopped our whole machine from working. But, our country is recovering!

Fully expected, open to it. I haven't seen any solid evidence of NPD by Hillary. I invite you to find me a clip.
However on Trump, the case for NPD is pretty overwhelming.
Clinton’s profile contains a cluster of three prominent patterns: a dominant, controlling tendency (aggressiveness); an ambitious, self-serving tendency (narcissism); and a conscientious, dutiful tendency (obsessiveness).
In moderation, personal ambition also has positive aspects; for example, boldness, competitiveness, and self-assurance. But the self-confidence of ambitious leaders readily shades into arrogance, a sense of entitlement, and an air of superiority — and they often act as though entitled.
After interviewing many of Clinton’s associates for a 1994 article in New Yorker magazine, Connie Bruck concluded, “In the end, the sureness about her own judgment — at its extreme, a sense that she alone is wise — is probably Hillary’s cardinal trait.”
Similarly, political scientist and psychoanalyst Stanley Renshon wrote in High Hopes: The Clinton Presidency and the Politics of Ambition that one aspect of Hillary Clinton’s character that stands out is her confidence in herself, her positions, and her work — resulting in a sense of entitlement, “a tendency to not want to be bound by limits that apply to others.”
