EPIDEMIC ALERT: “TDS” aka Trump Derangement Syndrome (PSA from Intellectual Froglegs)


Fox News staff

It’s been seen before on much smaller scales. The first known incident appeared about a decade ago— Bush Derangement Syndrome. Then we had the 2008 Palin Derangement Incident.

Today we have the Super-Virus: Trump Derangement Syndrome… or TDS as known by professionals.

The first case of TDS was spotted in the Fox News green-room back in July…  it has since spread throughout the media and may now also be found in small sectors of our society….especially on social media.

The consistent theme.. Donald is evil, and his supporters are stupid.


Call for Americans to fast for a politrician

When you see it… know what it is, and behave accordingly. Realize you are dealing with people who actually trust politicians with SuperPacs to fix the problems created by politicians with Super Pacs.

JUST A HANDFUL OF EXAMPLES: Glenn Beck has become Jim Jones, FoxNews is becoming the Republican version of MSNBC… and formerly-respected National Review, led by Rich “TRUMP IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE!” Lowry, may be the first publication in history to have all associate writers simultaneously committed to a mental hospital.

Even the Fox News Religion writer Todd Starnes…a guy I thought was immune to TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) found it necessary to insult evangelicals.

With all due respect to Mr. Starnes and speaking as an “evangelical” myself,  I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean “Goldman Sachs.”

CNN’s Amy Goodman says Donald Trump ‘bullies the most defenseless,powerless people’ — really?  Like the Bushes, Clintons, The Pope, FoxNews, the Saudi Prince?

Recommended Treatment: Don’t let them make you angry— they THRIVE on arguing…more specifically  insulting—-as you will likely see any moment in the comment section below. Wish them well, and move on.  If they persist in their nastiness…as many do, then engage the block, delete or mute options as you see fit. 

In the end… we cannot allow Hillary Clinton to become President of the United States.  This is not even arguable. I recall saying I could not vote for McCain and Romney—but I did.  Because at the time, it was the right thing to do.

Pray more, worry less… Amen
~Matthew 6:34

    TDS.. It is a mental impairment I have observed it. Once they have full blown TDS all you can do is wear garlic round your neck and carry a good sturdy broom to push
    them back with, there is no way of turning their thought process to a healthy
    cognitive state. They are a danger to themselves and others, not to mention they are
    a clear and present danger to the USA!

    And push back we must! It is not all that involved or strenuous we simply must vote like our Country depends upon it, which by the way it does.

    There now someone smack the easy button would ya?

    On Primary day and the General Election, get yourself to the polls and vote like your vote is the deciding vote that will catapult Donald J Trump into the White House, listen not to the circus clowns and midway fair hawkers that you will encounter on the final day. Listen to nothing but the sweet voice of Liberty, and GO VOTE for Donald J. Trump so we can Make America Great Again! He needs our vote and we need him as President. Period.

    Joe Dan I have no problem with difference of opinions. Yet you, like Trump, become down right immature when people are cautious and use critical thinking.

  • Bravo

    Love it when satire goes so unnoticed that it’s interpreted as hate speech by the intellectually impaired. Never been so entertained in an election cycle. PC is dead! Long live FU.

  • Mark

    I’m cautious about trump as president BUT! I’d prefer him in the white house rather than the hildabeast, and trust trump more than the beast, as a matter of fact I would trust mexican tap water more than the beast or a rattle snake with a pet me sign on it or oj simpson showing me his knife collection or a fart when I have diarrhea..ect

    People’s cavalier thinking about their vote and giving it to “their party’s candidate’ instead of the best qualified has gotten us in this position. This is why Heinlein in Starship Troopers proposed that only someone who had put their life on the line for their country could earn the right to vote. We use to only allow landowners to vote because they were the productive people. Today we allow everyone to vote and many of these only vote for more free stuff politicians. The unemployed or never employed should not be voting until they can show their self sufficiency or we will only beget more sloth.

    When the MSM wants to kill a story they ignore it. By giving Trump this huge amount of attention they are able to deflect attention from the other guy who opposes immigration and has an ACTUAL CONSERVATIVE RECORD. All that MSM attention is like free ads against Cruz -the guy they really hate.

    Trump deserves a medal for rubbing the GOPe’s nose in their poop, but not the presidency.

    You know who else gets a free pass on saying un-PC things? Democrats do. The MSM “attacks” Trump are mostly insults against the intelligence of his supporters – WE ARE BEING MANIPULATED: THEY KNOW WE WILL LIKE ANYONE THEY HATE!

      Cruz had to have his nose rubbed in it by Trump before he acquiesced about deporting illegals. Trump is the driving force on immigration, the economy-killing ‘globalist’ agenda and adherence to the Constitution and he does it all while manhandling the media to the point that they look like they’ve been hit in the head with a sock full of nickels.

      I mean, how can you really take someone seriously who plays dirty trickster while holding up the Bible, is in bed with Goldman Sachs and the unConstitutional CFR, flip flops on Ethanol just because he’s in Iowa and claims the mantra of Constitutional scholar while trying to uphold his eligibility to be President with the Immigration Act of 1790 when it was repealed and replaced by the Immigration Act of 1795. He’s an establishment guy in sheep’s clothing and slipperier than a pocket full of pudding. He just knows how to push the buttons of some angry voters and Christian conservatives by pissing off the other establishment guys to fulfill his grandiose ambitions.

      I guess it’s really a moot point anyway, because after March 1, Cruz will be looking like he’s been sorting bobcats for a living.

    If Trump had not been so brash and blunt about issues like illegal immigration, do any of his detractors think the issue would even be in the conversation during this election?

    All the high minded conservative political philosophy won’t matter at all if the Left is allowed to continue detonating weapons of demographic mass destruction on this country. The Democrats are quite literally a government “electing” a new citizenry, with no small amount of collusion among the GOP establishment.

    If you don’t stop THAT, then absolutely none of these other issues matter one iota. Trump is the only candidate who has not offered up some dissembling, mealymouthed answer on this critical issue.

  • There is another explosive issue that has been completely thrown down the memory hole by the GOPe. That is AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, and all its’ brood; race quotas, set asides, race norming, forced integration of public schools, and neighborhoods. This issue is just waiting for The Trump Treatment. if Trump picks up this issue he has a god chance to destroy the political elite and save America. If anybody out there can get this winning idea to Trump you have my blessing and prayers. Love Y’all Diego

    A vote for Trump is a vote for SHALLOW HAL.
    CRUZ16. Do you really believe the Donald gives a crap about the constitution?
    I know Joe Dan thinks he will fix the economy. Trump is the poster child of crony capitalism and you think he is going to fix that?
    Only 1 conservative is running only 1 guy that called Mitch McConnell a liar to his face.
    Wake up and vote for CRUZ!!!!

  • So Trump started the debate on illegals? There is video of Cruz speaking about building a wall in 2011. In 2011 Trump was a New York liberal. He has never flip flopped on ethanol or any subsides and if you would like to hear the truth on that issue – straight from Cruzs lips, go to you tube and put in Cruz and farmer. You will hear a reasoned rational argument for why he doesn’t support ANY subsides – unlike somebody else we know who pandered to the crowd. Last night I listened to Trump say he won his two states by many many voters (4% or less), while Cruz just barely won his (20+%). Now who is lying? So how are you feeling about Trump “softening” his position on illegals? Truthfully, are some of these issues starting to worry you at least bit? That’s a sincere honest question asking for an honest intellectual answer – not an emotional response. Remember, we are all mad at the lying GOPe.

  • Btw, even though we are temporarily disagreeing, brotherly love to you Joe Dan!

    Now, and for the rest of my life, my vote will be “None of the f*kin above.” Clearly printed; so there is no question of a hanging chad, intention, a pencil scuff or any other indication of other than clear intent and stated vote. The only sort of people that desire to rule over others are psychopaths. And psychopaths, under the Peter Principle, rise to their highest level of incompetence in government.

    I think Turkey Face McConnell gave Teddy, Bears on the Border with Beck, permission to call him a liar in exchange for the necessary vote.
