The word that most closely describes DT’s core essence is, I think, “megalomaniac.” All his other characteristics — dishonest, untrustworthy, deceitful, narcissistic, egomaniacal, — are merely bricks laid on the foundation of megalomania.

I now refer to him as either “the MIC” (Megalomaniac In Chief) or “the WHAM” (White House Addled Megalomaniac). Feel free to use those appellations if you think they are appropriate.
