Trump Derangement Syndrome Explained................

Trump Derangement Syndrome Explained

                                                                                    It's pathetic and a little creepy               
By Michael Dalton Johnson

The term Trump Derangement Syndrome or TDS was born when college kids needed safe places, playdoh, coloring books, and hot chocolate to cope with Trump's political success.
It has now grown into a seemingly full-on epidemic without a cure. There are some pretty ugly symptoms. Trump Derangement Syndrome is rapidly spreading from – a social media joke – to a psychological affliction affecting the general population. TDS is no longer a laughing matter.

At the onset of the illness, victims take leave of common sense and nearly all things Trump are blown out of proportion  The president's every tweet is a stick poked into the media monkey cage that triggers hysterical howling and feces slinging.

When Trump made a phone call to Taiwan's president, without hesitation, TDS sufferers were saying our "One China" policy had been canceled by Trump. Of course, a phone conversation isn't the same thing as an official diplomatic action. In their eagerness to show Trump's recklessness, the critics misunderstand US policy. They don't know their collective asses from a hot rock. "One China" simply means we don't view Taiwan as a country or that it establishes China's sovereignty over Taiwan. The US has never recognized Taiwan as a sovereign country however the Taiwan Relations Act obligates America to defend it.

Even Trump's way of feeding fish (based on a doctored video)  became front and center news in the liberal media. Every possible opportunity to zing him was, and still is, eagerly taken. Trruth is not a required element

Another stage of TDS has a profound influence on the victim's vocabulary: Sufferers speak a language riddled with emotionally charged hyperbole. One liberal website recently ran a piece that noted Trump's decision to continue using his private security force, which provoked a liberal pundit to tweet: "A predictable move for a kleptocratic authoritarian who wants to operate outside the bounds of law and basic ethical standards." Other verbal slings and arrows include homophobe, misogynist, Nazi, bellicose, Islamaphobe, xenophobe...the list goes on.

I recently had lunch with an old friend,  He is an intelligent guy and a writer of considerable talent. When our conversation turned to politics and Trump's name was mentioned his face turned red and he loudly spewed forth a stream of invective that described Trump as an asshole, idiot, liar, MFer, son of a bitch, cocksucker, traitor, and bastard. Spitting and sputtering, his visceral hatred of Trump surprised me. As the conversation continued he described Trump as "Putin's sock puppet" and went on to claim the president has an incestuous relationship with his daughter.

I had witnessed a dramatic example of advanced Trump Derangement Syndrome. At this stage of TDS, the afflicted lose touch with reality. Opinions come from raw emotion and have little to do with the real world.

TDS is the natural state for the One World Government crowd, with full support from Davos and the Bilderbergs. If you bother to look, you see that NOT EVEN ONE OF THEM has any use for the United States as an independent sovereign nation. And also that they think Western culture is not worth saving.

Remember that when the fun starts. And deal appropriately with them...
