Here are my observations on the reckless insults being made by individuals suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
For more than a year, we have witnessed Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters – about half of the voters – form a resistance to everything said and done by the president in an attempt to delegitimize his presidency.
As an outsider – someone who didn’t win the presidency after serving in another political office – President Trump has defied the conventions and norms established by the previous 44 presidents. He has taken a businessman’s approach in transforming the presidency, and shuns doing things “the way they have always been done.”
Those suffering from TDS simply cannot cope with the changes we are experiencing in Washington, and continue to peddle nonsense about the president’s mental state. This past weekend, anchors on all of the left-leaning networks, shamefully assumed the role of psychiatrists, and with the help of the newly released less-than-true book, “Fire and Fury,” attempted to convince their viewers that the president was unstable.
Democrats are so obsessed with bringing down the Trump presidency that a dozen of them listened to a Yale psychiatry professor warn that “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs,” during her two days on Capitol Hill.
OTHER VIEWS – “If having a screw loose makes people as successful as Donald Trump was during the past eleven and a half months, we should pray it’s contagious and that everyone in Congress and the federal bureaucracy catches it,” wrote Jeff Dunetz for The Lid.
Dunetz compiled an impressive list of accomplishments made by this president who supposedly has a diminished capacity. I invite you to click here if you are interested in seeing it.
“There has never been a day when I wished Hillary Clinton were president. Not one,” wrote Michael Goodwin in his New York Post piece, “We’re still better off with Trump than Clinton.” I suspect that few Clinton supporters would be willing to admit that.
“Indeed, as Trump’s accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of Clinton in the White House, doubling down on Barack Obama’s failed policies, washes away any doubts that American made the right choice,” said Goodwin.
Needless to say, I didn’t watch the Golden Globe presentations Sunday evening, but I noted Monday morning that Oprah Winfrey made a stirring speech that sounded like she might be considering a run for the presidency. No chance.
“Oprah for president! The same folks who have been moaning for a year how bad it is to have a reality TV billionaire in the White House, want Oprah. – @hale_razor
Democrats, who have been critical of Trump’s reality TV experience, don’t see this as a double standard.
FOLLOWERS OF THE COMIC STRIP DILBERT might be interested in seeing Dilbert creator Scott Adams describe his view of the president’s intelligence in a You Tube video. It’s 20-minutes worth watching by clicking here. You might also be interested in his book, “Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter.”
