Trump Derangement Syndrome - Bob Woodward

| No Comments

Of course, from the New York Times:

Trump admitted to Bob Woodward that he intentionally played down the threat of the coronavirus
President Trump acknowledged to the journalist Bob Woodward that he had knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year even though he was aware it was “deadly” and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu.

“This is deadly stuff,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward on Feb. 7 in one of a series of interviews he conducted with the president for his upcoming book, “Rage.” The Washington Post and CNN were given advance copies of the book and published details on Wednesday.

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.”

That was a vastly different story than Mr. Trump was telling the public.

Fake News on display. Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a term applied by some writers to critics of US President Donald Trump, accusing them of responding negatively to nearly anything Trump does. Justin Raimondo accused the president's persistent critics of using hyperbole and buzzwords such as "Hitler" and "normalize". Fareed Zakaria likened saying something slightly positive on Trump to "endorsing Trump as pope" to those he describes as having Trump Derangement Syndrome. The term has been used by some journalists to call for reflection, and used by other commentators to describe habitual criticism of Trump.

I still think that liberalism - as it is practiced today - is a mental illness.
