Narcissists put people on tilt. They get people off balance and then use that leverage against them.

Nancy Pelosi is beating Trump at his own game. She’s pushing his buttons. Working his weaknesses. Poking at his vulnerabilities.

And the key: she’s doing it without emotion.
Pelosi is putting on a master class in managing a severe narcisssist.

- Flat, emotionless actions and reactions

- Rejection of the narcissist’s demands for deference and acquiescence

- Refusal to be pulled off topic

- Flashing the ability to shame the narc

She’s a pro.

The last of those is dicey and isn’t wise in domestic situations with a potentially threatening or violent narcissist.

In a professional setting though, the ability to hit the narc where it hurts is a solid brushback.

Pelosi is showing the teeth just enough and just right.
