Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, dangerous, potentially fatal

Usually I dismiss letters from Kimo as Fox regurgitations, but he might have something with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I was half-listening to a sleep-apnea convention, I thought, which weirdly featured a gold idol dressed in flag-desecrating clothing. The speaker — who resembled the statue except obese with a Marge Simpson comb-over — I remembered from his shilling pillows and refried beans from the Oval Office, and seeking personal favors in exchange for military aid.

The orator declared himself the winner not only of the 2020 election but the 2024 one as well. He touted that all the candidates he had favored had won; my sleepy head said, “Georgia’s always on my mind.” The Democrats, he suggested, were afraid of his winning in 2024; remembering the Capitol insurrection, which even his party’s Senate Majority Leader rightly blamed on him, I am more afraid of his running and losing again.

He said we “all saw” massive fraud, a remarkable claim since no precinct had more votes cast than registered voters, or even vote totals or outcomes strikingly different than polls had predicted; taken together, a factual refutation of any claim that millions of votes were fabricated or switched. The speaker then changed course and shamed his own party’s Supreme Court for failing to invalidate an election in which, as his new tact admitted, registered voters cast ballots exactly as allowed by their states, with 7 million more preferring Biden. COVID-motivated, voting-procedure changes were dismissed as a fraud and hoax.

The speaker, who wasn’t Fauci or the CEO of Moderna, next took personal credit for the U.S.’s being far ahead of the world in creating and distributing vaccines, although actually several other countries beat us to the needle, and Israel, for example, has vaccinated 90% of its population to our 16%. No boast about leading the world in cases and deaths, nor any sympathy for the half-million U.S. victims.

After castigating Democrats, the Supreme Court again, Biden (falsely stating he had removed the Iran sanctions), calling COVID-19 the “China Virus,” then for several minutes labeling people seeking asylum as criminals and gang members, he denigrated transgenders, named about a dozen rhinos upon whom the audience should seek revenge, and concluded that the Republan (he omits “ic” from “Democratic”) was the “party of love.”

Ofttimes saying the Democrats were socialist, and that would inevitably lead to communism, the speciousator noted that farmers loved him (a result of some $28 billion in aid to offset the effects of his tariffs). Neither that nor his COVID program or the first stimulus package was seen as socialistic, although aid to cities was specifically cited.

National greatness, he suggested, was achieved by minimizing our country’s contribution to world health, and never relinquishing our position as the worst contributor to global warming.

He lauded the Second Amendment, and then ridiculed the First, insulting the reporters at the conference.

My poor head reeled from the contradictions.

Yes! Trump Derangement Syndrome is actual and potentially fatal. I was watching a super spreader event of that disease.

Jed Somit, Kapa‘a

    I didn’t call it a China virus at first. I knew it was originated from China. Trump being a commanding figure in the financial world, only guarantees him a free ride with the passing of the stimulus relief bill and to helping out more Americans who need the extra flow of income during the pandemic. However with Joe Biden as president and passing of his third stimulus check, this however made him more reliable on the democratic system in place to see to this comes through. Why’d I vote for Trump? He had money. And he knew how to showcase it. But here we are, Joe Biden is in command of the ship. So they are still having it on, the stimulus checks are still being distributed to many Americans. If not working means avoiding getting the COVID-19, then by all means many Americans will feel that way. Not need to work and for the pandemic, while picking up a stimulus check. Do you suppose that these supporters of Trump are rich also? Of course. That far to an insurrection. Yes. At the very least they have joined the political party and made their voices heard because of Donald Trump. They never needed government. They made it all happen on their own. Serves them correct to a revolt. Why should they participate in a government that will only go against their progress of making more money than the average Americans? Only logical then is this revolt. Trump supporters are everywhere.

      Bwahahahaha… “trump being a commanding figure in the financial world”…. that might be the funniest thing Iʻve ever read. Heʻs the commanding figure in failure worldwide. Lately heʻs nothing more than a fired fool who makeʻs his money panhandling for dollars. “trump the worldʻs worst beggar” how appropriate

        Your petty little life in all respects can’t touch Trumps knees. He’s worked much harder than you, graduated with honors from a top University, has single handedly created perhaps the most valuable brand name in the entire world, owns everything any man, woman, or child would die for ie; the best airplanes, golf courses in the world, yachts, Hotels, hundreds of successful businesses, and has a strong accomplished family who love their father, and who have accomplished massive amounts of good on their own account. Multiple times more than the attributes of a little Kauai tuna failure!

        tunataxi Trump wasn’t fired. He lost the election thanks in part, to the Dominion machines. After 11/3/2020, election officials in Antrim County, Michigan, noticed irregularities in the Dominion machines ballot tabulation, i.e. switching 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden, the courts ordered a forensic audit. The audit uncovered that the Dominion machines had an error rate of 68.05% and that the 2020 log files had been erased. Read about it here,
        How could Joe Biden, who spent most of 2020 in his basement hiding from the public, have won this election? Trump’s following was and is still massive. He’ll be back and hope he’ll clean up Biden’s mess before it’s too late.

          Get over it. Trump lost by a landslide. Even the judges he appointed threw out over 60 frivolous cases because there was not one iota of evidence that the machines were tampered with or found any signs of fraud whatsoever. Even an armed insurrection couldn’t forcibly overturn a fair election. Move on.

      Some corrections: Stimulus checks are not related to whether the individual was or is working or not, whether it’s the current round of checks or the previous. You can get COVID19 whether you’re working or not. And, nobody in the USA “never needed a government. They made it all happen on their own”, ever. That’s anarchy, which would never have even allowed for the formation of the USA.

    Uh, yep…. the addiction to false prophets (PROFITS) knows no boundaries…. your letter reflects the blatant obsession that so many late night talking heads just can’t wait to use as content!
    Trump anonymous meetings forming in a neighborhood near you…. is my suggestion.
    One day at a time! Turn it over to your higher power, do the 12 steps and then repeat!

      Dear KauaiVoter,
      Here is what Wikipedia says about National News (the source behind your Dominion link).

      Natural News (formerly NewsTarget, which is now a separate sister site) is an anti-vaccination conspiracy theory and fake news website known for promoting pseudoscience and far-right extremism.[1][2][3] Characterized as a “conspiracy-minded alternative medicine website”, Natural News has approximately 7 million unique visitors per month.[4]

    Another great letter, Jed. No matter how much we provide his supporters evidence that he was the worst ever, they cannot see that. Guess that they are all like him or have profiteered by his stupid antics. To be afraid of him is ridiculous. Don’t recall ever he firing anyone in a face-to-face setting. (Had someone else do it for him, tweeted it, or smart, independent ones resign in disgust.)

      “Worst ever” not by a long shot. If you buy groceries, gas, work, support a family. This last year has been rough. The last 2 months have been worse with less jobs, higher taxes and a massive financial debt future generations will be burdened with. We haven’t seen even close the the worst yet….unfortunately. Happy to see this administration succeed and get us out but the way things are looking and poor old Biden propped up signing special interest EOs by the dozens. The worst is yet to come. I pray it won’t.

    Indeed, we have to diseases stalking the land, one is covid19 and the other is this TDS. The results of Covid we have seen and experienced, I personally have lost several older folks on the mainland, and the results of this TDS, along with mass dementia we witnessed on 1/6.

    The vaccine for one is here, not so much the other

    Thanks Jed. Could not have said it better myself. But Chemo will go ballistic as he has a different version of TDS (Trump Delusional Syndrome).

    I am also a mentally ill liberal like the author. I don’t believe in God, I embrace anything that honors my lord of the infernal region including abortion, drugs, more than two genders, lies, wanting and taking want I haven’t earned, So far there is no cure for my illness, and unfortunately many have the same illness. I continue to make poor decisions, and blame the results on someone else. I vote for higher taxes without even thinking that I have to pay them too. I want government to be my parents, because my parents are logical and liberal government isn’t. Hopefully I can help myself by finding common sense one day. But until then, I will continue to spew lies and hate in honor of my dark overlord. I know that I will be in a warm place with him some day if I don’t get better. Keep looking down my fellow liberals. It’s where we will be together, but we can still blame someone else for our actions.

    What a bunch of bloviating diatribes by the Socialist Trump haters! You hate Trump because? Yep, he didn’t make you little people “feel” good. Well then, you hate America for some reason, you don’t have a backbone due to your selfish entitled upbringing, or, you’re a lazy dolt who thinks they deserve “free” stuff for nothing. Time will destroy you and your little mindedness because the outcome of a Biden/Socialist administration will translate into everything that will hurt you little minded people the most. More of you will be on welfare, more illegal immigrants will take your jobs and commit more crimes against you, you will pay through the nose every time you go to a gas station, inflation will rear it’s ugly head, money will once again begin a massive transfer overseas, and your money will become worth less than it has ever been. But hey, that damn Trump had all of that going in the direction of prosperity for all who love our Country, were willing to educate themselves, and who were interested in obtaining self respect through hard work. That obviously isn’t you!

    KauaiVoter: Catch up to reality, get your facts straight, and stop spreading more lies…

    “A Dec. 17 audit of ballots cast in Antrim County, Michigan, affirmed the outcome of the presidential election there — refuting viral claims that the election software used by the county, and elsewhere, had facilitated massive fraud. The audit, conducted by state and local officials and representatives of both political parties, involved a hand tally of all the votes cast for president in the county. The findings verified the county’s outcome, in which President Donald Trump beat President-elect Joe Biden by nearly 3,800 votes. Biden ultimately beat Trump in the state by more than 154,000 votes. In a county with more than 15,700 votes cast for president, the audit showed a gain of 11 votes for Trump and a loss of one vote for Biden.”

    > Did you catch the part where it states BOTH political parties did a hand tally? All that for 11 more votes! ha-ha.

    And President Biden didn’t spend “most of 2020 in his basement hiding from the public.” Talk about parroting. Unlike Trump, Biden hosted smaller rallies where people remained in, or near their vehicles because of a worldwide pandemic. Democrats know who Biden is, and we also know he was beside former President Obama for 8 years pulling us out of the worst recession since 1929. There was no need to gather in massive crowds spreading COVID in order to stoke an inflated ego like Trump’s.
