I'm consistently struck by how Drumpf describes a situation in terms that the left would, but where the left would use those terms to describe him and his ilk, he's using it to describe anyone that is against him (and that's mostly the left).

It's like a convoluted version of 'I know you are, said you are, but what am I?'

It's both projection, but also camouflaging in plain sight. He's accurately describing the situation but pinning it on someone other than him - in the same way that a lot of Republicans accuse "others" of doing what they themselves would in fact do (and often are doing).
