The Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well in the Mission Valley. This malady, if you haven’t heard, is a mental condition in which the afflicted has constant outbursts of vile and hatefilled rhetoric directed toward our duly elected President. These poor, mentally deranged individuals apparently cannot accept the simple fact that Donald Trump won the election and Clinton lost.

From the south in Arlee we have heard the derogatory and vulgar comments directed towards our President to the almost weekly asinine comments from Polson’s self-appointed town crier. It is amazing how these tabloid psychiatrists are able to diagnose the President’s mental state by merely regurgitating the anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-Republican rhetoric they listen to daily on network news such as MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN. Recent polls have shown that 90 percent of the stories they have run on President Trump have been unfavorable to Trump, while the incompetent Obama was praised and coddled like a newborn pup 70 percent of the time.

Rational people, of course, realize these liberal networks are not reporting news but their biased leftist versions of the news. They are nothing more than an extension of the Democratic National Committee. When President Trump described these “journalists” as the enemy of the people, I believe he was correct. These so-called news outlets don’t report objective facts, but instead continually lie about Trump and his supporters, labeling them as racists, Nazis, sexists, resulting in an unprecedented wave of violence, threats, and property damage against Trump and his supporters. Over 500 incidents that include attempted murder, harassment of government officials, criminal vandalism, and beatings have been directed toward Trump and his supporters, while our “objective” media ignore, dismiss, or attempt to justify it. TDS has been described by the “Urban Dictionary” as a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason. This new form of psychosis can be dangerous to the afflicted and bystanders, thus it is important to recognize the signs of TDS.
