Of course, the difference is he is also a malignant narcissist, to the degree he actually seems to believe his own fiction. There is a fundamental lack of respect for facts here that we simply haven't seen before. Pretty sure all previous repugs understood that working with Russians to take office illegitimately is called treason. Normal con men just want to make money, it takes an altogether deeper kind of pathology to treat American civilians as well as enlisted with such callow disregard, where his image/ego is more important than hundreds of thousands of dead Americans, and a lot more on the way.He is a master of lying to manipulate people. He is not intelligent, he is functional illiterate, he is morally corrupt, he is just a con-man without a conscious.
None of this requires exceptional intelligence, but it is aided by exceptionally low intelligence. I think clueless is a fitting description. Just like the republican brain donor that preceded him, I've yet to hear him say something that struck me as informed, intelligent and insightful. It's either him flailing away with a teleprompter trying recite topics incomprehensible to him, or more commonly, a vigorous round of verbal diarrhea where partially digested word salad spews everywhere.
Once again we have a repub admin headed by a moron who squandered what he was given, then made things exponentially worse. Once again Dems are going to inherit an absolute clusterfuck they'll have to fix, and with repug obstruction all along the way again most likely. I'm as tired of the rhyming as I am the wining.
