Yeah, I have to admit, I really knew that, Mr. P. I have also opined, on numerous occasions, that Trump is mentally deficient. He is most certainly morally deficient. His is a particularly pronounced sociopathy. But, he is well aware when what he does is illegal, and does not want to "get caught" (that would be a weakness).

The Trump organization is a crime family, just not a very good one (none of them are actually "smart"). They think they are clever, but only because they compare themselves to less clever people. Having existed only in a very small world of privilege, they don't recognize normal behavior. That is the thing about narcissism - it doesn't allow for self-reflection.

I do not possess the psychological expertise to opine on the relationship between NPD and sociopathy, nevertheless, it should be clear to all he exhibits the tendencies of sociopathy.

I suspect his awareness of illegality is a little murky. He may be aware of legalities but I suspect he believes the law does not apply to him. It can probably be argued either way but I would rather conclude he believes he is above the law, which would be consistent with his NPD. If one believes that, one may realize you or I may think it is illegal but for the person it may not have an ethical or legal meaning.

LOL. I have actually seen this several times and each time it was amusing. Of course it was amusing because those people did not impact an entire country and peoples lives.

Dumb and dumber make it to the WH ... it is a movie already seen in theaters nationwide

When you see your self as "the good guy", everything you do is for the good. It must be legal! You are wearing the white hat, after all. When you subvert the law, then it's the law that's wrong. I've heard this theme from Trump time after time.

Of course I'm old enough to remember: "Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal." That ends with a helicopter ride into exile.
