Do you or anyone you know currently suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome? That's unlikely if you're reading this piece, because it tends to only be a diagnosis given to the left.
What is Trump Derangement Syndrome you ask? A mental dysfunction causing those detractors with hateful thoughts and feelings about Donald Trump to go unhinged.
It explains the hysterical reaction and belligerent behavior of people, directed towards anything related to President Donald Trump, as pertaining to his presidency. It isn't intended to be a logical argument, rather a jab at another individual's excessive emotional reactions as well as aggressive physical displays. It is an ad hominem argument, not a strawman argument as suggested by another definition.
In most cases, those suffering from TDS tend to be Liberal pundits on left stream media networks like CNN and MSNBC. It's however not just limited to television pundits, many writers for outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post also suffer from this unfortunate disorder.
Some would say it's a contagious disease that tends to affect only those on the left side of the spectrum. When you're always winning, and not yet sick of winning, it tends to bypass the right entirely.
Let's take a moment to look back on previous Presidents. Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, even while despised by specific groups still had those in the media whom would come to their defense. That's not the case with President Donald J. Trump as it appears every company holds hate or jealousy towards his always winning mantra.
Is it being a sore loser? Sure it could be. I tend to believe however there's a psychological impact that has helped expose the underlying illness from having a strong President Trump that tends to trigger these leftists.
MSNBC's team of mentally ill competitive nut jobs are always flinging nonsense and despair and they honestly appear to look like spoiled teenage brats at times. I could spend hours dissecting the entire team but let's focus on a few of these psych ward contenders to begin with.
That brings to mind Chris Matthews, who just recently went on national television and exposed to the world just how much Trump Derangement Syndrome has affected his ability to reason with logic.
Just last night on the Thursday broadcast of ‘Hardball’ MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews compared President Trump to the notorious Communist Ethiopian dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam and then went on to suggest he could be a modern-day Romanov.
As if that wasn't bad enough, he seemingly became possessed to suggest Trump would commit such actions as those of Benito Mussolini having his son-in-law Jared Kushner murdered.
Yes Matthews is a prime example of a man desperately needing treatment for his TDS, whereas on past occasions he's reiterated his beliefs that Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump are akin to the murderous sons of Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay.
No doubt Matthews isn't alone however, but he definitely deserves the spotlight with so many fallacies in his ability to provide unbiased commentary.
During his intro segment referring to alleged quarreling between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Trump Administration, Matthews began to invoke the prowess of Mengitsu into his broadcast.
“It’s a far cry from that love feast we watched a few weeks ago, which is right out of Mengistu’s government in Ethiopia with all the people bowing to the president. Apparently all is not well in paradise,” Matthews added.
It certainly appears Matthews legitimately believes his own disgusting rhetoric. He doesn't stop there however, on countless other occasions the ‘Hardball’ anchor takes bat for an attempted grand slam of mental illness.
During a piece with Ashley Parker of the Washington Post, Chris ‘TDS Maniac’ Matthews somehow suggested that those of us who write aren't allowed to have opinions, but he can since he's on television. The TDS Maniac apparently has never read an opinion-editorial such as the one you're currently reading.
Matthews went on to say, “and one of my opinions was that nepotism is a bad thing in government” and seemed to compare the Administration’s own Ivanka and Jared to the bloodthirsty sons of brutal Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Chris said that, “You put Uday and Qusay in your government and you’re going to have a problem with everybody else in the government because nobody can fight with them. Nobody can challenge them and, in the end, the son-in-law is always right because he can always to go his father-in-law or his wife and say they were mean to me.”
No, it's not even satire at this point. This is clearly mental illness. Regardless of how you feel about Ivanka and Jared they're a mother and father to their children and a Son-in-law and Daughter to the President of the United States of America.
Suggesting they're somehow comparable to two vile dictator’s children who have personally cut off the hands of men and women, slashed their throats in public, beheaded, and even executed innocent civilians with their bare hands, is well, a deplorable statement.
When referencing what Matthews claims is Jared Kushner’s overreach on global business of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and what Matthews appears to believe is the Secretary's inability to oversee foreign policy, he suggested (talking about Jared Kushner) “the power seems to have gone to the son-in-law” and went on to suggest the Trump’s are “the Romanovs.”
Matthews tried to get Parker of the Washington Post to agree with him as the cameras were rolling saying, “Is it a royal family instead of a Democratic or a Republican form of government? Or is it a family running the government? Is it Ivanka and Jared and the President sitting around in the White House upstairs ruling the world?”
He was unsuccessful in baiting her however, as Parker went on to defend Trump surprising expressing how the Trump’s perceive what they’re doing as simply running government like a business.
Matthews then told New York Times columnist Frank Bruni Trump should look to history for advice and to take a page out of Mussolini’s playbook, which was murder your son-in-law.
“So the son-in-law, you know, one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law. I mean, I’m talking about Ciano.”
Yes, this mentally disturbed and clearly psychologically incapacitated television pundit actually suggested the President of the United States, in 2017, should murder his own daughter's husband and the father of his grandchildren.
Even New York Times’ own Bruni, seemingly shocked by such statements, told Matthews he should “be careful here.”
Matthews responded, clearly displaying his now terminal stage of Trump Derangement Syndrome, “That was an extreme measure. But this was… This is a strange situation.”
He actually believes what he says and he not only believes the rhetoric to be factual and reasonable he believes that he is somehow correct in saying such reprehensible statements on television.
This is what the symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome look like America, and if you or somehow close to you experienced any of these signs you should contact a doctor immediately.
