Trump derangement syndrome

Digesting Tuesday’s Election Results

As vigorous and enthusiastic campaigner as Donald Trump is, he can only show up the weekend before the election to save a few congressional candidates whose campaigns are lagging. If you want to win, nationalize the election and start campaigning NOW on the Trump agenda.

The derangement virus stalks the land

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) rarely kills, but it wounds, and it might be fatal to the Democratic crusade to take back the House. Once upon a time, and not so long ago, a sob and a whine for mercy in any press room would have been hissed, booed and shouted down by the embarrassed gentlemen of the press, including a few ladies as tough as muleskinners. Jim Acosta’s performance would have embarrassed Helen Thomas. They weren’t all giants in that ancient day, but they were grown-ups.

Democrats' dangerous case of Trump Derangement Syndrome

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Newton’s third law of motion states that in nature for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It can operate in politics, too. Looking ahead, it’s possible that Republicans in 2018 and President Trump in 2020 could win based on solid achievements. But their chances will be better if Democrats can’t shake off their bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Trump, the Yankee Doodle Dandy

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

The forty-fifth president of the United States relishes this country, its people, its achievements, its folkway and mores. He would rather live in America than anyplace else. As Americans used to say years ago, Donald Trump is a Yankee Doodle Dandy, and that brings out the Derangement Syndrome in some people. Call them progressives and remember progressives really do not like America very much.

Immigration: How Trump Derangement Syndrome Dumbs Down the Press

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

There are clearly pros and cons to the Trump Administration's immigration arguments, but the press refuse to engage in a similarly adult manner on this significant issue that has not been seriously discussed in decades.  They only attacked. And the attacks were almost as brainless as CNN Jim Acosta's, sometimes more. That's what happens where you're governed by rage and self-centeredness.

Helping the Victims of Trump Derangement Syndrome

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Recess appointments have been made from the time of George Washington on down, sometimes for simple administrative reasons, to keep the wheels of government turning, sometimes for political reasons, to smooth the road for a candidate unpopular with the Senate. I think Donald Trump should take a page from his predecessors. He should sit down for lunch with Mitch McConnell (salad, with Russian dressing, bien sûr) and convince him to declare the Senate in recess.  Then he should go to work.

Tell CNN Kathy Griffin Has To Be Fired

FLASH: CNN terminates Kathy Griffin as host of New Years Eve show. We urge CHQ readers to call CNN headquarters to demand that Kathy Griffin be fired for choosing to promote herself with such a vulgar and offensive image. Tell CNN that if the network stands for the values of decency, civility, and tolerance then Kathy Griffin has no place in their line-up.
