Captain looks over at me, says "we?" "How about me, your boss, your Captain is starting the turn now"

I absolutely hate this guy
Oh baby, I would have picked up the mic and called tower immediately, and said, "Excuse me...THE CAPTAIN has just informed me, HE is starting HIS base turn now."

Don't get mad, get even.

Absolutely, hes the guy when he upgraded had to make FOs and FAs feel like crap. He loved being that way. And the guy was a pure idiot. Worst attitude problem ever encountered, and the brain the size of a walnut. He felt entitled to everything.

But you're not me, I would take it that far in a NY minute, and if he had a problem with it, after we landed, I walk off the trip and call the CPO.

Life's too short to put up with morons.

You and me both. Guys like you end up being the good Captains to fly with. On the rare occasion I get paired up with a guy who wants me to ask for totally ridiculous stuff on the radio, I always start off the ATC call with, "The Captain would like....". If he takes exception to that, my backup plan is, "You're gonna have to ask for that one yourself.".

I don't get paid enough to put up with abuse or sound like a douche on the radio.

That's exactly how I feel after flying an excruciating trip with "God's gift to aviation."
