What did you expect? The only pattern here is yours and it is abundantly clear that this isn't a thread about him being a narcisst, rather, its a cleverly disguised rant. You literally see it halr way through your post.
In regards to maintaining a discussion on this "thread", I would say that who isn't a narcissit? I want big gold letters of my name in a biilding, I boast about my accomplish, may even embeliish a bit, whole knows.
No, no...I believe that people change and once the most powerful position in the world sinks into totality, we will be seeing a very different Trump.
Evidence was see in the campaign of this. He started off very abrasive, but as time when on and began to move up, his style and temper have dramatically been tempered, soon to be razor sharp.
The carrier thing, do the math and its a good deal.

Dear all, the president is absolutely open to (and therefore will be subject to) criticism. This is a by-product of a society in which free speech is guaranteed. It is a good thing, as it will (hopefully) hold our government accountable to a certain degree. In Saudi Arabia, a blogger was sentenced to 5 years for insulting the kingdom.. let's be grateful we live here!
Don't like the subject, don't read it!

Moreover, the $450,000-a-month allowance excludes some of the largest of Mr. Trump's daunting expenses, the bankers say. These extras, based on Mr. Trump's spending in May, include the costs of maintaining his personal 727 jetliner ($246,000) and his 282-foot yacht ($841,000). The yacht and the personal jet, to be sure, may be sold to trim the real estate developer's mountainous debts.
