DERANGEMENT SYNDROMES


Thanks to Charles Krauthammer everyone has developed at least several derangement syndromes. What started out as B(ush)DS has over the last score or more of years morphed into a veritable Heinz of varieties with Cream of Snotty Weeds becoming what they all taste like.  We must, however pay homage to Charles for having coined the term and damn him at the same time as his ‘syndrome’ has morphed into more infectious manifestations than a Covid virus. T(rump)DS may be the latest but it will not be the last; B(iden)DS is now the unstrained strain-du-jour reaching for the ladle.

That all of what Charles has inadvertently given us has devolved into P(oster)DS comes as no surprise, even a leader of one is now armed via the media of none-and-all to fill his/her wheelbarrow with the syndrome derangement challenged.

Elon Musk certainly is aware of this … he is also aware that you won’t complain if his condensed version of Snotty Weeds soup is whisked together with room temperature water. Make no mistake, show up on his forum, if he acquires one, as a lump of M(usk)DS and you will be boiled/weeded out … just like his employees who dare to be free.

Pandora’s Box became Krauthammer’s Box and Elon wants to turn it into Musk’s Box. The denizens of the box never change with H(ope )DS always being the jabberwocky prize lurking at the bottom waiting to choke you along with a musky taste.

Bon appétit!

I'd like to know when everyone became shrinks. I think they need to post their degrees before declaring any psychological DX's.

I think I might have my SIL weigh in on all future DX's. At least he has the degree behind him.

Good question. At least Charles Krauthammer had such a background. 

He graduated, with a Doctor of Medicine, from Harvard Medical School in 1975 and went on to complete a residency in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. In 1984, became board-certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

The "derangement syndrome" phrase has outlived its usefulness, because it is no longer applied logically. There is no such thing as Trump Derangement Syndrome , because the phrase implies that people are being unfairly or excessively critical of Donald Trump , when it isnt possible to be unfairly or excessively critical of Donald Trump. 

I'd like to see the use of the acronym TDS made a coc violation here, because it is almost always a symptom of trolling.

No, it refers to those that have Trump on their mind 24/7, and brings him up in every article, no matter if it is about Trump or not, and posts thousands of articles about him, zero with any proof..

Til TODAY Trump is insisting the election was stolen from him. He hasnt even shown a fragment of proof. He refuses to leave the national stage and in effect he controls the Republican Party. He is daily news as much or more than anyone else in the news today is. It is not our fault if you dont understand that. 

You wouldnt recognize "proof' if it fell on your head from inside a piano.

funny, I thought tds referred to the morons that think a white collar criminal that couldn't win the popular vote, twice, claimed the election was rigged, twice, instigated an insurrection, obstructed the investigation, and still can't bring himself to admit he lost over a year ago, should run for president again. yeah, I left out a lot and every one of his supporters knows what I think tds stands for, while they kneel before their hero...

We want him to control the party as long as let’s go Brandon is the leader of the other side.  We want the new GOP majorities Brandon faces next year to be Trumpists.  We want Trump out there rallying us in the interim. Even if he makes the choice not to run after the November midterm election, we want him as the face of our party and the domestic opposition right up until we have a clear leader in our Presidential primaries ready to be our nominee.  Until then at the very least it will be all about Trump and keeping him in your sides faces for the longest amount of time possible.  I like keeping him and what he says front and center…

Compromise is a bad word to the secular progressive elites.  Democrats could have gotten a lot done had they been willing compromise since Jan 20, 2021.  Trump was always willing to compromise and make deals with democrats.

They are easily identified by the amount of Trump related seeds here on NT.  In most cases these seeds are the "smoking gun" or "Trump's going down" style articles with very little to back them up outside of propaganda.  Some of them don't really seed any of the aforementioned articles but will jump into the comments sections with the normal "but TRRUUUMMMMPPPP" type comments to try to derail a conversation or deflect to something completely unrelated as to not make somebody else look any worse than they actually are.

Im sure you would like that.  After all the first instinct of the progressive left is to gag and content control conservative speech when things aren’t going their way.  Banning it would be counter productive.  I suppose there were some here who wanted to ban BDS back in the day….oh and Let’s go Brandon!

By all means let Darwin have his day. Think Brandon isn't a Darwin award winner? He cannot think, function, or act on his own. Any time he leaves script his handlers have to walk back his comments. Remove his corrupt handlers and Darwin will happily cut his strings.

Trump has Trump Derangement Syndrome. The fool is old, tired, and completely self-centered on stirring up troubles for everybody and everything he touches! Let Trump collaborators come to his brand protection all they wish. I see that old, tired, self-centered foolish man, Donald Trump, for who he is in his public-facing persona.

That is NOT WHAT HE said:  And the tape has been altered. Typical non-Christian behavior from you on Easter none-the-less. No shame either!

JUST IN: Biden leaves door open for a pathway to citizenship through reconciliation

Around timestamp 00:38 ( youtu.be/F_jry1xtCME?t=37 ) a reporter off-camera can be heard asking: “Does immigration need to be in reconciliation? Must it be in reconciliation?”

Biden then appears to respond: “What must be what?” or “But what’s been what?” (not “my butt’s been wiped”, as posts claim).

While his complete phrase is not entirely clear, Reuters was able to confirm that Biden did not say the words that have been attributed to him on social media posts, by analyzing the video in slow motion and adjusting the playback speed to 0.25 in YouTube settings.

Around timestamp 00:43, with the slowed down playback speed, Biden can be heard saying the word “must”.

A transcript provided by factba.se here suggests Biden said “What must be what?”

Afterwards, the reporter replicated her question “Is there a pathway for citizenship?”, to what Biden answered: “Well there needs to be a pathway for citizenship. Whether it can be made part of immigration remains to be seen.” Further Reuters reporting on the subject can be found here .

White House representatives told Reuters Biden was reiterating his administration’s stance that they would like to see a pathway to citizenship happen legislatively.

VERDICT

False. Biden did not say “my butt’s been wiped” when responding a question from a reporter about immigration. A slowed down version of the footage suggests he said, “What must be what?”
