Certainly the Donald has no intellect — pure ego — or normal self awareness. His self awareness is indirect. It is all the negatives that he projects on others. He has no unbent self awareness simply because to have that capacity would be too painful. So instead of reflecting upon his own shortcomings, he blisters others with them. It’s the survival instinct of an empty shell of a man.
