This is going to be a controversial post so please feel free to ignore it, if it offends. When you have had extensive experience of toxic people, certain characters, who are on the world stage, really stand out.
If your leader never admits mistakes, uses a lot of superlatives and seems continually to adopt the viewpoint of the last person he/she spoke to, there is a strong likelihood that they are a narcissist.

Nice people don’t necessarily fall in love with nice people.
They (and everything they say and do), need to be viewed in that context. This may not necesssarily be bad, as God can use anybody but we all need to at least be aware, if not alarmed.
