It’s true, Mr. President, but it’s not really a “syndrome” in a lot of cases. In many cases it’s a “Trump derangement conspiracy,” or a “Trump derangement effort.” It is only the truly clueless among the liberal population who may have the “syndrome.”
According to Dylan Stableford of Yahoo News, “Facing continued backlash over his comments at his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and his attempt to clarify them, President Trump on Wednesday accused his critics of being ‘haters’ who wanted to see his diplomatic efforts fail.”
“Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia,” Trump tweeted. “They would rather go to war than see this. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome!”
Senator Rand Paul, of Kentucky, tended to agree with him, who expressed support for Trump’s embrace of Putin while dismissing his many critics, “I think there’s a bit of Trump derangement syndrome,” Paul said on CNN Monday. “It is a good idea to have engagement … but these people hate Trump so much, all of that is being lost.”
Senator John McCain, our favorite RINO (Republican In Name Only) from Arizona was all in a tizzy, of course, because President Trump dared to imply anything but the greatest of respect for the slimy “swamp” monsters at the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and whatever other three letter acronym agency you can come up with.
“At the White House Tuesday, President Trump claimed that he misspoke (an excuse claimed by democrats on a regular basis and something liberals are only allowed to claim apparently) that he meant to say the opposite of what he said. “I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t,’” the president explained while reading from prepared remarks. ‘The sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,’ sort of a double negative. So you can put that in and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good.’”
“On Wednesday, the president claimed on Twitter that ‘so many’ top intelligence officials ‘loved’ his diplomatic turn in Finland.”
“So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki,” Trump tweeted. “Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!”
Also according to Yahoo News, “President Trump insisted the summit with Putin ‘may prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success’ than his efforts last week at North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s annual summit in Brussels, where he accused Germany of being held ‘captive’ by Russia and decried U.S. allies for not contributing more to military spending.”
“According to President Trump, Russia ‘has agreed to help with North Korea, where relationships with us are very good and the process is moving along.’”
“The meeting between President Putin and myself was a great success, except in the Fake News Media!” the president tweeted.
Those of us unaffected by a certain “syndrome” do believe you and believe in you Mr. President. You have our trust, and we think you’re doing a great job!
