Once again, we see the traits of DJT's narcissism in his last statement that his former, private life was better than that of being POTUS. This week's "insight" through this clever interviewer's question shows a pattern of lifelong narcissism. Did you catch it?
In DJT's past, he moved from one focus to another, from one group of supporters to another. He settled in an area, rattled cages, destroyed and moved on. It's all because when he can't find an adoring crowd to indulge his over-blown sense of self-love, when his delusion of his grandiosity is weakening, he caves. He moves on. Trump’s three-part cycle: He idealizes himself as President, devalues criticism (found in mainstream media), and finally he discards.
Trump is a control-freak and so, as America (especially with #Resistance) will not do what he want without question, he will cave.
My prediction: With the pressure building in his trail of corruption, incompetence and desire to build an authoritarian government in a free society, Trump will quit his presidency. He will probably fake some tale about health issues, but he'll resign... all because of his malignant narcissism! It won't be a threat of impeachment or trial for treason. His self-love and ego is not appreciated; his sense of entitlement, is denied; his own grandiosity is thwarted by a strong resistance. As Trump does not take orders from others (outside Ivanka), as he is egotistical and maniacal, he will not bend to a real threat. What will end Trump as POTUS is a big hit to his self-esteem. His malignant narcissism will control the decision, and narcissism unmet with the attention it seeks will be the cause which ends this insanity. Thus, the end will come from Trump, himself.
Remember! Trump is an insane individual who loves only himself and wants everyone to talk about him, ill or good; let's stop the madness - let's talk about who we are, who we see ourselves to be, talk about our virtues, hopes and future.

Trump is Devaluing All Criticism: The Next "Step" is He Resigns!
Earlier in this post, I had provided a prediction regarding Trump's departure from the WH. As Trump returned from his manic or high-inducing world tour, in which he revealed parts of his dementia (walking away incident with Netanyahu), and during which he was feted like a king in Saudi Arabia, but ostracized in NATO's meetings, he has fallen back into his empty world of "one." It's really a narcissist's prison induced by a world that does not permit the existence of others unless those others are in complete adoration of the one. He's not a king here; he's a public servant. Yet, for DJT, that makes no sense. Reality in Washington DC is a far cry from "Trumpworld." Here's CNN's recent take on DJT's return:
"Trumpworld is run by Trump. Mistakes are made by Trump. And all of this is powered by this singular view on the Russia crisis, says one ally: that Trump believes he has no responsibility for any of this political trauma, that it is created by the mainstream media concocting conspiracies where none exist:
"He's sitting there saying, like he does with everything, 'You guys work for me. Fix this.'"
Again, from my earlier post, it's all because when he can't find an adoring crowd to indulge his over-blown sense of self-love, when his delusion of his grandiosity is weakening, he caves. He moves on. Trump’s three-part cycle: He idealizes himself as President, devalues criticism (found in mainstream media), and finally he discards.
"No one is giving him the landscape -- this is how it works, this is what you should do or not do. And no one has enough control -- or security -- or do that," says one.
DJT has gained weight, he's grumpy/unhappy, and even his closest -- his wife/daughter Ivanka and her DJT surrogate husband Jared -- are unable to assuage his foul moods while they are under FBI investigation. Expect more to depart the WH, and if DJT is true to his narcissistic/sociopathic personality disorder, DJT himself. He'll lie about whatever counterfeit health issue he affects, but in reality - the real reality - it's his ego that needs out of the White House. Then, upon his "departure," and his return to his Trumpworld, watch and see he'll restart tweeting his caustic critiques, as he is then safely adored in his tiny, tiny prison of one.
