Did I ever mention that the difference between a self-absorbed asshole and a narcissist is that the narcissist suffers from delusions? Why, yes, I did (boldface mine):
Trump, meanwhile, has reacted to the deteriorating situation by lashing out on Twitter and venting in private to friends. He’s frustrated that the investigation seems to have no end in sight. “Trump wants to be critical of Mueller,” one person who’s been briefed on Trump’s thinking says. “He thinks it’s unfair criticism. Clinton hasn’t gotten anything like this. And what about Tony Podesta? Trump is like, When is that going to end?” According to two sources, Trump has complained to advisers about his legal team for letting the Mueller probe progress this far. Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment, according to a source briefed on the call. When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation. “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said. “I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress.” (The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment by deadline.)
Regular readers will know I’m not exactly a water carrier for Hillary Clinton, but, in this plane of reality, there is no conceivable way one could possible think Clinton has been treated well. Of course, if you’re a Fox News watcher–and Trump is the first Fox News president*–who also is a narcissist experiencing narcissistic break, then I guess Clinton had it easier than Trump.
Speaking of narcissist break and the ensuing rage, note to wunderkindt Jared Kushner: narcissists will turn on anyone to regain that narcissist buzz. Anyone. Not that I feel sorry for any of these bastids.
*Il Trumpe also seems to be first president who watches a lot of television. Not a half-hour of nightly news or the occasional show or special, but hours and hours of it. This is a bad thing.
