What is pathetic is the reason, simply that a dead man cannot fight back so Trump can feel that he is "winning", something he desperately needs to bolster his fragile ego. Just like Trump runs rallies rather than make speeches, he requires constant positive support from his followers again to feed his ego. During his years in business Trump proved that he lacks self confidence and any great abilities to lead so he has created an illusion that he is the best and jumped right into it. What is sad is that his followers have jumped in, for the most part, with him. Consider this, Trump has never provided any evidence to prove that the positive things he says about himself are in anyway correct.
