Among the most prominent characteristics of Donald Trump’s toxic personality is his unrelenting outrage and his tendency to throw infantile tantrums whenever he feels he has been treated with insufficient adoration. He is a textbook example of a malignant narcissist who has an obsessive compulsion to exalt himself at every opportunity and to fiercely denigrate his perceived foes.
Trump promised make appointments in his administration from among “all the best people” that he pretended to have personal relationships with. As it turned out, his appointees were notoriously – according to Trump himself – weak, incompetent, unqualified, and utterly unfit for the jobs to which Trump appointed them.
On Sunday’s edition of Face the Nation on CBS, Trump’s former Attorney General, Bill Barr, was interviewed by Robert Costa and provided some insightful observations of Trump from the perspective an insider who worked closely with him during his occupation of the White House.
Barr was one of Trump’s many appointments who were intended to run their offices with loyalty only to Trump rather than to the Constitution or the nation. He was also one of the many suckers who Trump later maligned in the most offensive terms. And no wonder Trump was furious. In this interview Barr gave a particularly accurate of description of Trump…
“He’s like a defiant nine year old kid who’s always pushing the glass toward the edge of the table defying his parents to stop him from doing it.” [and…]
“He’s a very petty individual who will always put his interests ahead of the country’s.” [and…]
“Our country can’t be a therapy session for a troubled man like this.” [and…]
“He is a consummate narcissist. He constantly engages in reckless conduct.”

For his part, Trump has been trying very hard to validate assessments like these. In just the past 24 hours, Trump has posted a series of utterly deranged harangues attacking law enforcement, Republicans, Fox News, and of course, President Biden. For example…
“[Special Counsel Jack] Smith is a sick and deranged sleazebag.” [and…]
“This is all about Election Interference by the Communist Misfits and Thugs.” [and…]
“[Mitch] McConnell and RINO Republicans are a disaster for the Republican Party.” [and…]
“Do not broadcast negative ads against Republican and Conservative Candidates. […] Only “TRUMP” can save Fox News.” [and…]
“Long live the King. The only solution for Fox News is to bring back Trump.” [and…]
“CROOKED JOE BIDEN pressed deranged Jack Smith to do this FAKE INDICTMENT on me.”
It’s clear that Barr is right about Trump’s stunted emotional state. And it’s equally clear that he’s gotten under Trump’s thin skin. This has been festering for quite a while. But it has gotten worse in recent weeks. For instance, referring to Trump’s indictment, Barr recently said that “If even half of what it says is true, HE’S TOAST!” And you can lay odds that way more than half is true, just by going on Trump himself has said.

BARR (on Trump indictments): If even half of what it says is true, HE'S TOAST! … He was totally wrong that he had the right to have those docs. … And he kept them in a way at Mar-a-Lago that anyone who really cares about national security, their stomach would churn at it." https://t.co/S92yB7QhUd
