Trump derangement syndrome

I'm sure we have all heard the term. At one time it kind of pissed me off that somebody would claim that about me, of course it would, who wouldnt it?

They say insanity is doing something over and over and over again, expecting a different result.

Everytime something comes from Trump, like a claim that Obama is a Muslim, or his kids post a disgusting tweet, maybe his administration says something incredibly racist like, "there are bad on both sides".Of course that is going to enrage a normal person. They are expecting a normal human, or president to do differently. But time and time again, we are served a nice plate of Trump. Why wouldnt this make me pissed, enraged, etc.

That's what is happening right now. Normal people are being driven insane by a litteral cartoon president.

for this nightmare. Look at how they are pushing through the SC nominee, knowing full well he is not qualified. They already got their obscene tax cuts for themselves and other wealthy people. They managed to keep the Helsinki reporting closed. Imagine if a democratic president had done ANY of these things? At the very least, they could have pushed an intelligent, normal acting candidate into the WH. This joke that is in there now, along with his family "advisors" is a big F_U to any person with a few brain cells. Putin must be so proud. He got the dumbest, craziest looking ass into the WH, and is destroying the USA with help from the gop. In a very short time, the credibility of this country has been destroyed. We are a worldwide laughingstock.

It's a reflex defense mechanism of the species known as the Trump cult member , I wouldn't give it a second thought, it's really not worth it.

Let's not forget that it first sprang up in the Bush administration as "Bush derangement syndrome", a smear about people who opposed Bush's policies and actions in office. It painted people who criticized the administration because they had damn good reasons for criticizing the administration as if they were merely doing so reflexively for some strange, scatterbrained nonsense reasons.

It's even more so as "Trump derangement syndrome". But it feeds the wingnut base, so they vomit it forth.

It needs to be brought out loud and proud. If it is a slander by people who are a part of this cult of personality by Trump, it needs to be thrown right back in their faces. Notice how snowflake isnt thrown around just willy nilly any more?

Throw this back into their face! They are the ones suffering from it. It's why they arent able to see this being done.
