Wait.... if you're clever & self-aware, then you're not all that stupid, by definition.

I mean.... what?

The definition of stupidity isn't lack of cleverness and self awareness, it's a lack of thought and good judgment characteristic of the mentally lazy and incurious.

Thus: in his own head Trump thinks he's a hero set upon by a bunch of 'haters' who fail to appreciate his greatness (somewhere underneath he knows it's a con, hence the lashing out, but he's not in touch with that). Boris is more complicated: he is fully aware that he's a liar and a blowhard, but spins that into being the Great Entitled English Gentleman (and deep down he also knows he's losing his shine and only comes off as 'charming' to the over-70 crowd -- but he's not in touch with that).

Otherwise it's the same. Both treat arrogance as a substitute for character and bluster for knowledge. And over the years that leaves the brain calcified and unable to adapt.

It has also left both people absolutely MISERABLE, prone to attacks of rage as they blame everyone else for their own unhappiness... not that this self-made hell is anywhere near punishment enough for the harm they're causing so many others.

I've noticed that, in America, Boris Johnshon does tend to inspire philosophical discussion about the various levels of stupidity.

Does Trump suffer from a lack of self awareness, or a lack of awareness of anything other than himself?

How many angels can dance on Trump's brain?

Angels don’t exist, but neither does trumps brain.

BTW, I really like somebody else's (Nominal, I think?) description of Boris: he's someone whose brain was once strong & flexible when he was young, but he let it go to pot over the years.

Well, Nominal said it better, but that was the general idea.

Not I.
