A CNN talking head thinks there's something odd about President Trump.

Yes, most are in it for themselves, strokes their egos. For T it feeds his intense and pathological narcissism.

I think of Trump as a con artist. There are people who want to believe the con artist, they need to believe the con artist. Unfortunately, the effects aren't limited to the believers and we're all going to go down.

He knows how to play his base and push their buttons to keep them loyal to him and hating the Democrats. He knows how to play to their fears of an America that is less white, less straight, and less fundamentalist and looks less like a Norman Rockwell painting from the 1950s. That is why he's been able to remain so popular.
Remain so popular -- define popular....he didn't have the popular vote.

And maybe thatís where they feel they can relate to him. Even though heís not a victim.
It's possible. It's also possible that they like him because he sounds like a flounderingly uneducated guy. It's also possible they like him because he makes endless pie-in-the-sky promises. It's also possible they like him because he leads a recklessly self-centered life, insulting people, groping women, backing out of deals.

He's the only president in my lifetime, besides Reagan, who has stood up to the authoritarian collectivists. Just the fact that he has the backbone to stand up to that is amazing.

^^^^^

Amazing.

A strong President would let the criticisms roll off of his or her back and refrain from 'punching down'.

Trump's reactions aren't displays of backbone.

They're because he's thin skinned and insecure, and is seemingly incapable of keeping himself from reacting.

People in other countries notice this.

The 'Trump Baby Blimp" came from outside of the United States.

Trump's reaction to the blimp....."I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London"........... .........poor little Trump.
