“They will just remain stuck on their vision of what should be, convinced that everyone will see it their way.”

I have written a short piece that could explain why Trump is narcissistic:

Trump is not a liar. He’s a builder, builder of “alternate realities,” without which he could not function since he has lived in such realities all of his life. Firstly, in the one his daddy effectively built around him. Then, the one his lawyers professionally created while managing his business failures in ways that made him perceived his bankruptcies as genuine successes because others were suffering the consequences. Then, the one created in his TV reality show by professionals producers who staged him as an implacable and ruthless dominant figure.
Now that “the buck stops with him” he cannot but openly creates himself his alternate reality while awkwardly trying to be as effective professional and creative, as his daddy his lawyers and his producers were respectively.
And, he is surprisingly good at it. Too bad he doesn’t put his dominant personality at work to “make humanity great again,” like it needs to become before it destroys everything it has created…
