6. He will not stay to the bitter end if he sees a bad end as inevitable.

This is a captain who will not go down with the ship. He'll jump to a lifeboat leaving his cohorts and perhaps his family to drown.

"Nothing outside of him is real." -- That's actually called solipsism, and this is a description that fits due to his extreme egocentrism and lack of basic empathy.

But, it only fits him sometimes. In actuality, what people think of him is important to him.

His mental maladies are not easily categorized because they are layered.

So to speak, when "shit gets real," he'll switch to a narcissistic survival mode.

If he thinks he'll lose this election in an inarguable landslide, I predict he will use COVID symptoms as a reason to step down rather than face the humiliation of being a loser.
