    What do you think will be the cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome?

    It has been a month since the election of Trump. So far, after protests, and media criticism, and celebrity meltdowns... it is clear they are not about to leave the US as some had threatened to do. So, what do you think will finally cure them of this irrational hatred? For some, it may be their pocketbooks. Since the Trump rally had put about 10% more savings into their 401K accounts...
    For others, it may be the realization that it was all hype and not substance...Finally, it may be to accept it and see what he actually does in office that will determine his success or failure.

    I saw someone post the five stages of grief as related to Time Magazine covers, and put the latest magazine cover as stage 3.

    I'm not sure there is a cure. Those on the left were miserable and angry before Trump won, the problem is a spiritual one.

    To cure a disease you first need to diagnose and define it.

    Under all the outraged rhetoric is a narcissistic sense of entitlement. Frustrate it and tantrums happen.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is the tantrum that happens when that sense of entitlement bursts. It’s not a new phenomenon. We saw it with Bush and with previous Republican presidents before him. But as the left’s power has grown, its insular ivory towers have become unable to imagine ever losing it.

    Obama maintained the illusion that the opposition didn’t matter by ruling unilaterally. Then in one election the illusion collapsed. The left wasn’t really in charge. There were millions of people across the country in places they had never visited or even heard of who got to decide on all these issues.

    That warm comfortable safe space of John Oliver and Samantha Bee viral videos, Buzzfeed stories and social media feeds filled with carefully curated people who agreed with them wasn’t reality. It had been an illusion all along. It was an elitist island that had little in common with that vast geography of people who get their say through the Electoral College. After two terms of getting their way on everything, they woke to a world in which they didn’t matter and which was suddenly no longer catering to their whims.

    They don’t really want to abolish the Electoral College, to put Garland on the Supreme Court or to burn New Balance sneakers.

    What they really want is to get rid of democracy and replace it with a dictatorship. Trump Derangement Syndrome is the tantrum of tyrants.

    It’s a real threat to democracy. But that’s what the left has always been.

    The hysteria of Trump Derangement Syndrome is the flip side of Obama worship. Both reject democracy and embrace power. They are the illiberal attitudes of a totalitarian movement at odds with America.

    The cure for TDS?

    WBA, it is incurable!. They will remain a thorn in the side of Democracy and all you can do is pray for those afflicted or just wait for them to die (likely here and not in Canada) and be put out of their misery.

    Trump created the so-called Trump Derangement Syndrome with his tweets and comments; Especially his unhealthy distrust of our intelligence analysts.

    If Trump arbitrarily dismisses CIA intelligence regarding encrypted communications between terrorists, our nation may be in grave danger of another 9/11.

    This is not about hatred. It is not about a syndrome. It is based on Trump's own tweets and comments.

      Is this the same intelligence that said it was ok for Hillary to have a private server in her basement while every hacker have easy access?
      Is this the same CIA that messed up in Benghazi? To this day, we don't know who game the stand down order?.
