Trump’s difficulty in accurately gauging reality has been clearly revealed in his and his team’s claim that some sort of plot on the part of the mass media exists to denigrate him personally, that the media is conspiring to deny that his inauguration was the biggest in history, that he’s immensely popular, that he has a mandate, etc. This seems not to be pure “spin” but a deeply felt (almost panicky) attempt to deny a reality that is deeply threatening to his self-image. It suggests that what some commentators described as a paranoid facet of Trump’s mentality is, in fact, much more serious.
