America is ill! How is it, that in a country where you can’t drink till you are 21, you can buy an assault rifle or machine gun when you are 18 years old?
There must be some soul searching in the wake of the shooting in Florida! Some Americans are mentally sick. And I am talking about more than the kid who walked into this school … I am talking about the people that enabled him. I am baffled!
In two months alone, in 2018, we have had 24,000 injuries and 11,000 deaths .. roughly 40 deaths a day. This is “a terrible epidemic.” If there was a virus causing this, the U.S. government would be calling a state of emergency, and mounting a major public health offensive. If it was a terrorist causing this, the U.S. government would be invading another country by now. This is dysfunctional, by all standards. And no one does anything.
And then, we now have two Trump administration “insiders” that have pleaded GUILTY to felonies. We have 4 that have been indicted. One for sure will be pleading GUILTY to the felony next week. We have two agency heads under attorney general investigations for fraudulent travel vouchers, an additional agency head resigned for lying. We have two ‘Wife beaters’ removed from the oval office. There are 110 white house employees who do not have valid security clearance 1 YEAR after the election (implying there is something wrong with their backgrounds). We have 37 cabinet officials have been fired or resigned in less than 365 days.
There are also other subtler indications of corruption, with $25 Million is “Missing” from the inauguration party donations. Trump criminal enterprises continue to rent space to undisclosed foreign banks, criminals and Russians. And we have Trump’s 1 year of travel costs exceeding Obama’s total 8 years. We note that the “tax reform” HOAX benefited trump direct business interests at the expense of US Taxpayers. And, 6 months after Russia sanctions were passed, Trump refuses to implement them through the executive branch. All this makes Trump a Liar, Fraud, Criminal, and Traitor. And yet, the Senate and House do nothing!
Then, we have regular bulletins in the press about Trump’s liaisons with porn stars; and literally dozens of prior reports of his infidelities. And yet, at the same time, we have evangelical declare “God Chose Trump”! Hank Kunneman of One Voice Ministries in Omaha, Nebraska, declared that the election of President Trump was a divine work of God intended to establish a “blood right” so that the glory of God can spread across the nation. Eighty percent of white evangelicals, voted for Trump. These self-described “value voters,” Trump was a walking contradiction of nearly everything they claim to believe in — a vulgar, thrice-married real estate tycoon whose brand is built on money, women, and debauchery. And these same people continue to support him, undeterred!
That these Americans don’t get it is baffling to much of the rest of the world. It’s a disease. And yes, there is a name for this disease: TRUMPTARD.
Trump Anti-fact Resistance Disorder is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time. Sufferers of Trump Anti-fact Resistance Disorder often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, uncontrollable crying, suicidal ideation, and extreme sadness. Symptoms include being Pro-Gun, Anti-Immigrant, Pro-War, and fundamentally support Mr. Donald Trump despite total dysfunction of his administration.
Yet, TRUMPTARDS remain persistent that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.
These individual sufferers often display signs of paranoia and delusion; in acute cases psychotic episodes have been observed. Meanwhile, gun violence in America’s heartland continues to rise.
Diagnosis of Trump Anti-fact Resistance Disorder is straightforward. Ask the patient if Donald Trump is going to make America Great Again. A TRUMPTARD sufferer will begin to ramble incoherently, often displaying three or more of the symptoms within a short period of time.
The only known effective treatment is exposure therapy. The patient must be repeatedly exposed to reality. Given a dose of new facts three times a day. Each exposure should increase in length, after a week the patient should be encouraged to be seen in public without his MAGA hat on.
Patients with TRUMPTARD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality.
If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TARD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge America will thrive to new heights, but without Donald Trump at the helm.
But in fact, Trump is the symptom not the disease. Trump’s promises of a mythical return to greatness in which political correctness and the reality of a changing global economy as well as the changing demographics of American politics can be ignored may well have been too alluring to be resisted. In their more thoughtful moments, most TRUMPTARDS know that a wall for which Mexico could be compelled to pay (among other fables told by Trump) can’t insulate the country from disturbing economic and cultural changes. Trump may, fight dirty in a way that will give a visceral thrill to many with TRUMPTARD disease, but even the most truculent billionaire can’t turn back the hands of time. The TRUMPTARD disease is a disease based on ignorance and emotions. The core issue is – there isn’t enough medicine in the U.S.! People need facts to cure the disease and the media is very bad at highlighting and disseminating facts. But even armed with facts, TRUMPTARDS don’t seem to recover.
Thus, the disease persists without a cure.
