That's pretty much it. He has really nothing to lose as he sees it. Doesn't matter how any other see it....remember he doesn't think the public "thinks" let alone would revolt against him....and if so... too late to do anything about it. Shrewd behavior all the way for this guy.
He is really nothing but a jive talking street thug. His boasting that nobody in the wh can beat him in basketball is typical. This attitude extends to everything he does. He is sneering and arrogant thumbing his nose at authority and daring anyone to knock the massive chip off of his shoulder.
He lives to pick a fight and then run behind his color. I pray he gets the fight and is buried in it.
