Delusions abound: "grab 'em by the p*ssy" aside, the man actually thinks he can do anything - and well. And win at any game. To him, bragging is not a sin but a simple statement of facts: "no one _____ more than I do." When he inserted "respects women" at the Town Hall Presidential debate, he did not hear the laughter, because his mind cancels out humiliation. When he said "Nobody reads the Bible more than I do," people laughed again because his reading skills have been questioned. Seriously.
There is no depth to most of his comments because his vocabulary is so limited. Every time he speaks of being "smart", he sounds more like a man who just passed his GED on the third try - a statement he deems necessary to insert very often and into totally unrelated subjects.
That he lives in an alternate reality and abhors the slightest criticism (enacting a streak of vindictiveness) are givens. Critics are "losers" while analytical media are "failures".

Physicians like me have also taken notice of Trump's bizarre, volatile behavior. Given our experience, we can't help but wonder if there's a medical diagnosis to be made. After all, many medical conditions exhibit their first symptoms in the form of psychiatric issues and personality changes. One condition in particular is notable for doing so: Neurosyphilis.
Virtually every mental health professional I interviewed told me that they believed, with 100% certainty, that Mr. Trump satisfied the DSM (narcissistic personality disorder) criteria of this incurable illness and that, as a result, he is a serious danger to the country and the world.
Oregon Representative Earl Blumenauer called for a review of constitutional procedures to remove a president from office, stating it did not consider the mental or emotional health of a leader.
"It's not normal behaviour. I don't know anybody in a position of responsibility that doesn't know if they're being rained on. And nobody I work with serially offers up verifiable false statements on an ongoing basis," he told The Hill.
California Representative Ted Lieu has announced plans to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House.
