Trump Derangement Syndrome

Facebook continues to abound in hateful screeds by idiots suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

They're making up all kinds of excuses for his smashing victory and trying to dream up ways the Electoral College can nullify the vote and make Hillary Clinton president.

One of the most unhinged is a guy I went to high school with who is absolutely certain that Donald Trump is the anti-Christ and the reincarnation of Adolf (he spells it with a ph) Hitler. Every few hours he posts a new rant, each crazier than the one before. I have chosen not to respond because, as we all know, the only thing crazier than a crazy person is trying to reason with a crazy person.

I am convinced that the Liberal trauma would have been less if the mainstream media had not spent the past year assuring us that Trump could not possibly win and deluding people with bogus polls showing Hillary with a commanding lead. It great measure, this shock and disbelief is a consequence of deliberate misrepresentation and self-delusion by the very people who are supposed to be objective truth-seekers.

As one who spent most of his adult life in journalism, I spotted the bias early on. I also recognized that a lot of Americans weren't buying it and hated the direction the country was headed under Obama. Anyone who paid attention to the repudiation of Obama policies in the off-year Congressional elections knew this was coming. The political pendulum had swung so far to the left that it was time for it to swing back to the right. With a vengeance.

Now, all we can do is wait for George Soros's paid minions to exhaust themselves and fade away, just like his Occupy Wall Street people did.
