The world owes the narcissist everything; he, in turn, owes it nothing.
Trump has said, “I wish I’d had a great marriage. See, my father was always very proud of me, but the one thing he got right was that he had a great marriage. He was married for 64 years.
One of my ex-wives once said to me, ‘You have to work at a marriage.’
And I said, ‘That’s the most ridiculous thing.’”
One of my favorite authors is Hans Christian Andersen. I have read and own most of his fables and stories. Recently, we heard from Michael Wolff in his revealing accounts, “Fire and Fury,” stories that tell the tale that Trump can’t do his job. In Wolff’s interview with the BBC, he stated, Trump is someone who is mentally incapable of being president of the United States.”
Wolff in several interviews has stated, “Suddenly everywhere people are going ‘oh my God, it’s true, he has no clothes’. That’s the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end ... this presidency.”
Never mind that prophecy for now, but do realize the “no-clothes” effect is happening in some fashion (pardon the pun) just on the Left, and not on the Right. For instance, Fox is covering the story from Trump’s angle, declaring Wolff’s book is nothing but lies. As yet, no Republican has accorded any creditworthiness to Wolff’s book. Yet, even though Wolff conducted more than 200 interviews for his book while in plain sight as a near-resident of the West Wing in Trump’s first year, Trump and the Republicans, along with their state-run media, Fox, have no specific proof in crying, “Foul.” Notwithstanding a few in the Trump army who have said Wolff’s accounts are not complete, so far none have produced contrary evidence showing Wolff’s accounts are fictional as they broadly claim. In the meantime, the Left unceasingly chatters about the no-clothes effect, cueing in on Trump’s narcissism, as if we have just learned he is an irrational individual with sociopathic qualities. Journalists and biographers, such as Mark Singer, have long noted Trump’s sociopathic psychosis. Singer’s best description of Trump is “An existence unmolested by the rumbling of a soul.” (2011). My favorite quote is from Columbia Journalism, “Avoiding questions about Trump's mental health is a betrayal of public trust.”
So, as the New York Times published, has the book “detonated as few contemporaneous political books ever have,… reigniting questions about [Trump’s] mental stability?” I think not. Those questions have never dulled or become clouded. Those issues have remained on the “front burner” of all concerned psychiatry.
Wolff and many other reports say Trump’s actual campaign goal in the beginning was to make him rich through the post-election creation of a media network which Trump would direct. It was Trump’s mistake to think he would actually win the Electoral College, which later had to be explained to him. With this exposure and more, Wolff predicts Trump’s demise. So, how is Wolff predicting his book’s stories of the public’s false perception and erroneous comprehension of Trump’s rich “clothes” will finally end his presidency? For an answer, we must return to Andersen’s story, itself.
In that fiction of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” the King cared about nothing, but his own appearance, so vain was he. Everything he did was to show off his conspectable ego, and he took no interest in the affairs of state. Indeed, the same is true of Trump. “It’s not broader questions of law, government or national security. He’s got one paramount thing on his mind: himself.”  In Andersen’s romance, following the Emperor’s stance on his ostentatious, egocentric habiliment, his sycophants and aides de camp adhered to strict self-imposed silence as they refused to acknowledge the non-existence of the “new clothes” made by the scammers of the royal court.
"I know I'm not stupid," the man thought, "so it must be that I'm unworthy of my good office. That's strange. I mustn't let anyone find it out, though." So he praised the material he did not see.
Yet Wolff’s prediction falls short. The “new clothes” effect, or self-deception, will not influence those, Congress chiefly, who have in their hands the tools of impeachment or the 25th Amendment. The majority in Congress (Republicans) has yet to feel embarrassed that they are wrong and have been lying to themselves. In the tale, the Emperor proceeded in splendor down one of the royal streets with all the Republicans, uh, err, citizens exclaiming, "Oh, how fine are the Emperor's new clothes! Don't they fit him to perfection? Andersen reported in this children’s fable from 1837, “Nobody would confess that he couldn't see anything, for that would prove him either unfit for his position, or a fool. No costume the Emperor had worn before was ever such a complete success.” (Reminds me of all of the Trump pundits without exception).
"But he hasn't got anything on," a little child said.
Here’s where it gets wiggy, for just then the King shuddered a bit, as he considered for a brief half-second the veracity found in the child’s announcement. However, did this brief introspection into self-transparency end his regal rule or cause the crown to shift from the enlarged royal head? In other words, did this realization end his presidency?
No. The royal procession continued. The Republicans didn’t care to hear from that child or a million children for that matter; they did not pause to reflect upon the Monarch’s exaggerations of his own grandiosity.
Indeed, Trump walked “more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all.”
A good read on Narcissistic traits and origins.
 A group of psychiatrists has written to Congress to warn Donald Trump poses a "clear and present danger" to the world. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-mental-health-psychiatrists-clear-present-danger-world-us-president-dr-bandy-lee-yale-a7911621.html
