He’s an exhibitionist, and always has been. The last thing he wants to do is take himself out of the public eye. For this guy, who’s been obsessed with showing himself off since he was a young’un, there is no such thing as bad publicity (which also explains his over-the-top rants in Congress). While normal people would writhe under this spotlight, at least some part of him is preening.
I wonder if his upcoming “years” of therapy can solve this problem.
