3. A diplomat after the War, on seeing a great sunset, turned to President de Gaulle and said . . .

"That's a magnificent sunset!"

I suspect, in a similar conversation today, Trump too would say thank you -- then charge at least a C-note for the view.

7. Narcissist!

 

The frigging, mental, moron, just can't stand Anything happening that he doesn't get credit for!
Next he'll claim that "Past Admin's caused Cancer", and "Only HE could fix it"!
I'm waiting for him to try to start walking on water too!
REALLY convinces me that 40% of the US populace also need their heads examined, right along with him!
