When you assume the mindset of a narcissist, most of it makes sense. He’s not a man who makes business decisions that benefit him, he makes business decisions that stroke his ego. Build a huge tower that will never have enough businesses paying rent to break even? Don’t care, it’s got my name on it in big golden letters, that’s a sign of success.

Too many casinos in Atlantic City? None of them say “Trump,” so that’s gotta be rectified.

If I slap “Trump” on my planes and offer luxury services, I’ll draw the sort of people who will fly on those jets just to say “I flew on a Trump airliner!”

Trump steaks, Trump vodka, Trump water? It’s got my name on it, it’ll practically sell itself!

The Russians expect repayment? Tell them I won’t pay, we’ll see how serious they are about calling in the debt when they’ve got so much with my name on it that they’ll go bankrupt!

Indeed, and it’s worse than just narcissism. He’s fundamentally insecure, which is why he needs all those things with his name on them in big golden letter. He craves attention and adulation for doing stuff that deserves only derision and mockery. These are personality traits that should have disqualified from public service, but the GOP and the Russians figured that had a useful idiot to manipulate, so here we are.
