One of the main principles of this forum is to encourage humility in the face of this awesome creation and cosmic play we are witnessing. In the process, we cannot but recognize the incredible ego mania involved in Donald Trump and the poor ideal he represents as a model to others. In the valleys of humility much understanding can accumulate. On the peaks of mountain tops nothing can flourish.

Narcissist in Chief; How Trump's Ego Reflects US Culture

Credit: Joseph Sohm / Shutterstock.com

We can see in Trumps brash statements, personal insults thrown at his opponents and rampant speculation over his perceived narcissistic tendencies a tremendous ego.

Trump surely displays enormous self-regard; in June, for example, he boasted that he'd be "the greatest jobs president that God has ever created." In September, he promised, "We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning." Egoism is a trait Trump seems proud of, in fact. In 2013, he wrote in a Facebook post, "Show me someone without an ego, and I'll show you a loser having a healthy ego, or high opinion of yourself, is a real positive in life!"

While Trump's ego is extreme, he may be a bellwether for politicians as a whole and for the American public. Research suggests that both the political class and ordinary people are becoming more self-absorbed. And this increase in narcissism may have implications for many elections to come.  [The 5 Strangest Presidential Elections in US History]

I don't blame the President for the narcissism that plagues us "ordinary people" but at least it's a start to further inquiry. Even Hazrat Inayat Khan so long ago understood the dangers in western culture and we admire him more than most president's... A big part of Trumps win was in electing someone that wasn't such a politician... President's, government and corporations LIE to the people. I don't think we're going to witness any BIG change soon- unless this IS the beginning stages to that ... ? Communications have brought us to a new chapter. It was Trumps obvious faults that helped him win votes. Not everyone trust a silver tongue and I think that's what a majority of voters were tired of. Hillary wasn't really a viable option for a lot of people, I still think things would have been worse if she were President.. There is an internal battle happening and our foundation is shaking- I think it's a good thing. If you get hung up on the scapegoat you may lose your own humility as a consequence(?)

As u see from his own lips he was and is such a president and we must remember that he has made a habit of making everyone that disagrees with him a scapegoat so is it astonishing that suddenly the tables are being turned on such a silver tongue artist himself? A president should be an example of leadership to his people and the world; instead we have example what not to be to be considered a leader and spiritual example. Unfortunately not everyone has the capacity to recognize just how evil Trump is. Just as Adolph Hitler was deified by many of his followers so we have the same blind adulation that surrounds the people that follow this ruthless poor excuse of human being. As if being the president of this nation means anything accept total disregard for humanity and this earth.

But Watts' research found that in the long term, disagreeableness becomes a problem. Narcissistic presidents are more likely to have impeachment resolutions brought against them, are more likely to favor political gains over good policy and are more likely to engage in unethical behavior, Watts and her colleagues found.
