Snowden’s Narcissism on Full Display

Filed under: Music,Politics,Russia,Snowden — The Professor @ 9:49 am

Snowden was interviewed by NBC’s Brian Williams. There was nothing in the way of real information, except that the interview confirmed Eddie’s rampant narcissism and grandiosity. His insistence that he was a trained “spy” rather than some low level system administrator was a classic. One thing that narcissists can’t handle is to have their delicate, fragile self-esteem challenged. Sometimes they react with rage. Other times with haughty assertions of their own talents and achievements. Snowden’s answer was definitely in the latter category. Blathering on about how he was a trained “intelligence operative” pretty much betrayed that he was in fact not a trained intelligence operative.

The most amusing portion of the interview was when Snowden insisted that has no relationship with the Russian government.

And I am Anastasia Romanoff.

Even if he’s not a trained intelligence operative, he is a natural for the FSB, for he has Putin’s ability to utter patently-and obviously-untrue statements that spindle, mutilate and fold credulity (“there are no Russian troops in Crimea”) without batting an eye.

  1. Snowden’s interview was actually painful to watch. What a hurting, attention-craving man-child. Somewhere in the same category with our fearless leader’s propensity for photo-ops with his “Il Duce” lower lip.

  2. Of course he has no relations with that country: they were just nice men and helpers who happened to belong to some organization he didn’t ask about.
