With no capacity for introspection, he focuses all of his energy on his own reflection. It has to be seamless or he becomes insecure and experiences acute withdrawal symptoms...therefore the constant pot stirring, the affronts to norms, the presidency by tantrum.
For a guy who spends so much time looking at himself in the mirror, what is he seeing that we aren’t? This is the same guy whose reality is what he watches on Fox News, and what he reads online at right wing websites. In his brain, everything reflects his image, but he has no capacity to see a repetitive, boring, orange-headed, shallow, used car salesman that most of us see.
I suspect that if you took away the money factor from his portfolio, even the diehard supporters would lose interest. He is the one they consider their best bet on winning the personal lottery of life--their Great White Hope. They had better pay attention and check their own wallets and watches. He has sticky fingers.
In his experience, bad behavior, outrageous observations and deceit draw the most attention and distract. Nevermind if it freaks everyone out. Whenever something seems to be coming to label him for his falsehoods, he shoots off another tweet or executive proclamation to try to get the hounds off of his trail. But, they are coming.
Like a true narcissist, he denies facts and makes up his own. All of the moochers who are trying to draft his energy and momentum simply look the other way or act like they are deaf. As long as they get their little piece of the pie, that is all that matters to them. He has overpromised and exaggerated the future like a classic Ponzi scheme. Most stakeholders will end up holding the bag.
In the presidential popularity contest, he was voted least popular. As a new president his ratings are the lowest in history. But in his mind he dwarfed the competition. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! His numbers will never add up. This is the same person who we are expected to believe if he makes a case for war or forecasts the nation’s budget. The purest form of BS on the planet, where all messengers bearing bad news are all done away with.
This isn’t going to have a happy storybook ending. It will be a tragedy for all involved and change the course of politics for the next generation. He considers anyone who is not a supporter an alien. You don’t exist and your problems are invisible.
Do you trolls reading this have no shame?
