5. What an awful, sad way to live.

Trump has probably been miserable for his whole life, and because his personality disorders have made it impossible for him to be happy. He has no appreciation for abstract beauty - not art, not music, not nature. He has a reproduction of a Renoir that he insists is the original, but he values it not for its beauty or its excellence but because he knows a Renoir painting is valuable and confers prestige on its owner. He doesn't go to concerts or plays. He doesn't read books of any kind, let alone great literature. He isn't interested in exploring nature. He doesn't like animals and has never had a pet of any kind. He's had three wives and has cheated on all of them; they were trophy wives whom he never loved, and they probably never loved him. He doesn't have friends, just hangers-on. His recreation consists entirely of golf, at which he cheats and which he cultivates because his ownership of golf resorts makes him feel important (and he can list himself as the winner of nonexistent tournaments), and watching tv broadcasts about himself. He wants to see his name emblazoned in gold on every property he owns or licenses because he needs that big gold name to feel important, because there's nothing in his sad, empty soul that makes him feel adequate without the attention and praise of others.

I think just about all of us are happier than Trump, even if we don't have two dimes to rub together. We have friends, families, pets, and the love of things that are beautiful just because they are beautiful. If Trump weren't so horrifically destructive I'd feel a little sorry for him.
