Johnson used to at least be able to give a passable imitation of being Boris Johnson. Now he can’t even manage that. The gags and the mannerisms that used to be his calling card, now just fall flat.

Someone whose narcissism leaves him devoid of empathy. Incapable of either giving or receiving love.
