Trump derangement syndrome - Yes, it is real

This came up in another thread,
I even gave a quick example.

Rather than posting in the Trump - I Really Don't Care, Do U? thead, thought it might be better in a separate one with a different point of view and a place to post them. (mods please move if appropriate).

There are multiple examples, here is the most recent one:



It was November 2016 and the only person I knew who believed Trump would win the US election was the owner of my gym. This was clearly a ridiculous prediction so, seeing the chance for some easy money, I offered to bet him $100 that Hillary would win.

Continued here

mspmms, you might want to make a clearer point in your original post, if you're actually wanting to have a discussion.

Though, there isn't a lot to discuss about "Trump Derangement Syndrome", which has turned into a convenient way for his supporters to dismiss any and all criticism.

Incredibly similar to "Fake News".

This is a joke right? Just took a quick skim at the article and it looked like something out of The Onion.

I'm fully convinced closing this forum is EXACTLY that which is desired by a handful of posters... hence threads like these.

Totally fucking transparent, but hey, let's go back to talking about movies and DVDs amirite?

That example is so clearly satire, it's painful.

Satire - yes it is real.

Come on man, They live for this forum. Post counts don't lie. And if you banned or suspended them it would be mere minutes before the sockpuppet accounts started rolling in.

Re: Trump derangement syndrome - Yes, it is real

Wasn't this basically Kathy Griffin's excuse for her photo shoot with the Trump head? "I'm going to be honest. He broke me. He broke me. He broke me."

I think being outraged by this or that day in and day out could turn into some sort of syndrome but I know people who would go off the rails every time Obama went golfing so really it's just a matter of how much folks want to let themselves get worked up over this or that.

Re: Trump derangement syndrome - Yes, it is real

This thread just seems to be not-so-subtle snipes at other forum members back and forth. I don't see any real discussion going on, so I'm shutting it down.
