A vain man childishly fishing for the adoration of strangers. Being rich isn’t enough; he wants to be universally loved for his imperfections, too. Slurping at the popularity spigot, The Donald’s need for ego gratification is double the size of any ordinary adult. Never in history has such a supercilious dope been more adored. It is beyond reason. Perhaps aware of this, and sensing defection, Trump whips out his phone… 140 characters is all it takes. Tweet.
It is finally sinking through. 46% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE MAJOR NATIONAL NEWS ORGS FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT ME. FAKE NEWS, even worse! Lost cred.

He glances out the window of his private jet at the destruction beset a once beautiful US island; it disgusts him. He retreats to his phone to check emails, but years of operant conditioning and muscle memory take over. He taps on the bird icon. “30k likes! Only.“. Trump works best knowing his base is in a frothy outrage. “Better do one more…”
