Trump Derangement Syndrome



You cannot parody this shit.

That protester’s mama probably isn’t voting for Donald Trump

Erie, Pa., sits in the northwest corner of the state, on the tiny stretch that abuts Lake Erie (hence the name). If you’re traveling from western New York to Ohio, which I did a lot as a kid, it functions the way Delaware does on trips between Philadelphia and Baltimore, but without the toll.

On Friday, Donald Trump held an event in Erie, which is a bit weird because he’s currently trailing in the state by a nearly “never mind about that place” margin, down 9.2 points to Hillary Clinton in the polling average. Nor does he need to win it, necessarily; no Republican has since 1988. Perhaps he was there because it’s close to Ohio, where he only trails by about 3 points — but then, why not just go to Ohio?

Anyway, he was there, and, as is not uncommon, so were some protesters. One in particular earned an unusual rebuke from Trump.

“Oh, here’s another one,” he said when the protester started yelling. “Go home to mama. Go home to mama.” Applause. “And your mother is voting for Trump! She’s voting for Trump,” he added, to louder cheers. “It’s true!”

Actually, it’s probably not true.

This is followed by a rather lengthy discussion involving statistics and charts. Finally:

So let’s summarize. Assuming the protester is a person in his or her 20s from in or around Erie, the odds are good that his or her mama is supporting Hillary Clinton, but there’s a pretty good chance she won’t vote at all.

What a gaffe.

The author of this piece (Philip “Speed” Bump) is apparently from some alternate universe where the concept of a “your mama” joke does not exist. This is the silliest shit since Wolf Blitzer fact-checked SNL.

Scott Adams has a theory:

Here’s the set-up:

1. The mainstream media knows they are smarter than Donald Trump. They see evidence of this truth all the time, although much of that evidence is confirmation bias.


2. Trump does something smart – accusing Obama and Clinton of being “founders” of ISIS. This is a clever way to get the world to debate Clinton and Obama’s ineffectiveness during a time when ISIS expanded. In other words, it is brilliant media manipulation, and it worked.

3. CNN and other Clinton supporters interpret Trump’s statement about ISIS as absurd and uninformed because they can’t imagine a scenario in which Trump does something brilliant. Trump being brilliant isn’t one of the options, as far as they know.

The reality of Trump’s clever persuasion is crystal-clear to anyone who thinks Trump is smart. Trump was clearly joking about the “founder” part to get people squawking, and it worked. Total success. Brilliant technique.

Now the media has a big problem. They can’t admit that they were extraordinarily dumb in this situation and Trump was brilliant. That reality is invisible to them because it doesn’t fit their worldview.

So…cognitive dissonance happens.

This is a textbook set-up for cognitive dissonance. The facts we observe (Trump is smart, the media is gullible) is opposite of the media’s worldview in which they are smart and Trump is uninformed. So what do they do?

They act as if Trump is the dumb one in this situation. Because that fits their worldview.

And…they…fact-check his claim.

Meanwhile, the unhypnotized laugh themselves into a stupor watching this spectacle of cognitive dissonance. Humor aside, it is a marvelous and incredible thing to behold.

My theory is these fuckers are deranged. Seriously – they are bug-fuck nuts. Lights on, nobody’s home. A few french fries short of a happy meal. They are loosing their shit. A couple sandwiches short of a picnic.

Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.

    The enthusiasm of Trump supporters is infectious, I don’t see any of this on the “other” side. And fish wraps, like WaPo, can’t stand it😉 Trump. Cannot. Be. Palinized.

  2. dm says:

    Saw a story yesterday where Sharyl Attkinson (?sp) said she attended an awards dinner where an ex bureau chief got up and was telling the other journalists to actively do whatever they could do defeat Trump because this election is so important…he was, of course, applauded…there is definitely a movement among most of the press to do whatever they can to sway this election…which is pretty obvious. So, between the GOPe, the nevertrumpers, and the media, it really is a testament to Trump’s fortitude that he is even on the ballot.

  3. mothy67 says:

    Southwestern PA here and I know not one person that supports shillary. Not my 28 year old female doctor, not my early 30’s female attorney. Not one of my 60 plus year old aunts. Not one of my sister in laws. Not the guys I play poker with. Definately not the cops. Every parent is pissed off about common core and the evil lunches. Almost every home on my street recently got home security installed. 2008 there were hrc signs everywhere in my hood none not one now. People smile at my MAGA hat.

      Remember yesterday, someone in the media said that the size of the crowds don’t matter?
      Why doesn’t Hillary cancel?

  6. DandyTIger says:

    This is the most amazing election ever. The worry of course is that the media, polling organizations, Dems, and the establishment on both sides (but I repeat myself many times over) are powerful and they have a tremendous effect on the average not paying much attention voter. So Trump has a monumental battle to get there.

    • DandyTIger says:

      A corollary to the media, pollsters, and establishment being on one side, is that perception generated is all they need. Even if the real vote is for Trump, Hillary will win, and no one would question it based on the media and the polls.

      • mothy67 says:

        I worry about the people who do not want to be associated with the”white men without a college education”. I hear it everyday. Sometimes several times a day.

      • lyn says:

        Trump and his supporters will question it, and I doubt Trump will take losing very well. But, yeah, the fix is in.

        • Somebody says:

          So if that’s the case then what? Our republic is officially lost?

          I am truly troubled by the disconnect between the polls and the crowd sizes as well as the enthusiasm on each side, it just doesn’t add up. Maybe Trump just has a really enthusiastic 40% and Hillary has everybody else? If the majority of the country truly wants someone known to be a liar and totally corrupt……mountains of evidence right in front of their faces…..if that’s what they want then our republic is well and truly lost. Whether it’s via election fraud or via dumbfucks voting, matters not our country is lost.

          If Hillary gets elected I can only hope and pray that some within the media cross her, they’ll end up in an unfortunate accident or decide to commit suicide via shots in the back. IMO there isn’t a more deserving group than the MSM, they are an absolute disgrace.

          • Venus says:

            Trump has to win by enough that he overcomes the margin of fraud.
            Tough but doable — he did it in the primaries.
            Don’t fool yourself — that’s the only reason he’s the nominee.

        • Venus says:

          Trump has to win by enough to be well over the margin of fraud.

    Another thing the black guys on the bus love Trump. Known the same guys for 10 years. Most mornings it is silence except after a game. This town bleeds black and gold. Then everyone is talking to everyone else. Donald is always getting everyone talking about what he said now. People get a kick out of him. These are people going to work at 730.
    I tried to read The Advocate to see how I was supposed to think as a gay man. They are all behind hills. Not reality. The gay men I know like Trump. I don’t know people that would demand a cake. A few people being loud because they want attention is not representative.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Black males are not going to go out in droves to vote for HRC. Her support among that demo is limited to the effete. Trump has a lot of black male support, they just might not actually go out and vote.

  9. votermom says:

    Apparently the other day Hugh Hewitt was suggesting to Trump that instead of saying Obama founded ISIS, he should more accurately say that Obama created the vacuum that allowed ISIS to.grow.
    Trump replied that if he said it Hewitt’ s way, no one would talk about it. When he says Obama founded ISIS, everyone talks about it.

    • mothy67 says:

      The JV team stance needs to be driven home. Years ago when we heard of the horrors they could have been snuffed out. Instead baby decapitations were taken in stride.

    • mcnorman says:

      IMHO, the problem is that the American public has been conditioned to word fellatio. Hewitt is no different. When you work in the private sector like DT does, the economy of words is the best choice. Time is money. It’s horrible to think that our citizens will vote for word fellatio, but is that not what Barry the wonder boy did at the 2004 convention when he spoke? I’ve yet to meet a politician that is not good at verbal word soup in order to persuade or evade. DT hurls comets with his one liner zingers.

      An interesting note, some independent farmers in WI were asked about which way they would vote. These people were busy. They said they preferred the DT answers to Hil’s word vomit which they didn’t have time for and didn’t believe anyway because the answer was always convoluted. The only thing that bothered them about DT was that he was NOT a politician. Could he take on the world not being a politician? Then they asked the guy interviewing / polling them to help them in finish the milking.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I’ve noticed your gravatar has been morphing this week – I like this one as well. Suites you.

            And yes, the people went crazy over meaningless tripe that sounded pleasant written by a team of bongers. Hoping enough people are ready to get back to calling a spade a spade when needed without worrying that words might trigger swooning by the over sensitive hot house posies. And are willing to try something outside what has become the normal march of the puppet masters political penguins.

      • votermom says:

        “word fellatio” – I’ll remember that!

        • mcnorman says:

          Is that not the appropriate term for these people that just love to listen to them? Never a straight answer, just a lot of curve balls swimming around their heads. I blame this on our despicable PC culture that forces everyone into believing that if they don’t tenderly communicate whatever, they are not “touching” the soul. Rot, rot, rot. ISIS and the vacuum that created it doesn’t need word fellatio. They need the economy of words that have meaning and consequences. We all need comfort, but the Barrys and Hillarys of the world have taken this bs to a new height. (I understand that Hewitt is trying to tell DT that some folks need a little bit more word vomit to drown in, but I don’t.) It’s almost theraputic right now to have word fellatio in order to feel safe. Nevermind that when “you cross the red line,” it is inconsequential because it just needs to sound “right” to the masses (consequences be damned). It is the conditioning that we have become accustomed to. Politicians try to win us with word fellatio or the masses believe that they aren’t “real” leaders. Word fellatio can be appropriate, but not all the time.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Again, Trump is right🙂

  11. elliesmom says:

    I’d like to know why people assume white, middle-aged and older women will all vote for Hillary. There are a lot of women who fit that description at all of Trump’s rallies, and she couldn’t get enough of them to beat Obama decisively in 2008. I know several women in that demographic who are die hard “Not Trumpers”, but they aren’t voting for Hillary, either.

    • dm says:

      Women have always been underestimated and undervalued in our society. We may not follow sharia law and walk 5 steps behind our husbands, but we (as a collective) are not held in any kind of regard. While I don’t march in the feminist parades, I have lived and worked long enough in this country to see and experience the kind of brush off that happens when your (female) opinion is discounted…IMO.

      • Constance says:

        The Media are the ones who most undervalue women unless they are gay as in lipstick lesbian. Look at what garbage they put up as “women’s content channels” as if you can collect a batch of typical shows written, cast, filmed, directed and edited by men and come up with a view of women and their lives that women would find appealing. Media makes absolutely no effort to appeal to real women or reflect their lives. They can’t cope with women who don’t fit their narrow caricatured stereotype and I would guess they have no idea how real women are voting.

        • Underwhelmed says:

          A woman wrote the bestseller Devil Wears Prada. But only as a last resort did they hire a woman to re-re-re-write the script of the film. Until then it was male male male and not a one of them could get it right. I’m shocked, I tell you. Shocked.

        My wife walks beside me.
        She is my partner in this life.
        Her opinion is just as valuable as mine, and I have always respected it.
        We are a team navigating the issues life gives us.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Trump rallies remind me of Tea Party rallies, before the IRS shut them down. Just a bunch of happy patriotic Americans taking on the status quo of both parties. With hopes they realize now, nothing will change if Hillary’s elected. Come to think of it, the GOPe was more annoyed by the TP movement than the Dems. Looks like this TP (Trump-Pence!) movement may actually work😀

    • blowme0bama says:

      I don’t think people assume that demo will vote for her, its just that THAT is the only group that has anyone who is enthusiastic to vote for her. She represents some sort of icon to some of those people who look at her as what they’d like to have accomplished themselves. There’s also a bit of nostalgia for their younger days during the 90s.

  12. DeniseVB says:


    • dm says:

      That is hilarious…and when the laughter dies down, I realize how incredibly sad and tragic and ALL TOO TRUE.

      • lateblum says:

        Many of my friends supported Bernie. They are not on the Internet and most likely have no idea that Bernie just bought a $600K summer home, and a new car. They don’t know that he now owns 3 homes, or that his wife is/was involved in the misuse of funds at the university. The misuse of which led to the closing of said university. They also don’t know that she was given a nice separation package by the university after she “stepped down” from her position. (They DO know she “stepped down”.) When I told them the story, they refused to believe me. They also refused to look up the information themselves because if it wasn’t a headline in one of the 3 papers they read, there is no there, there.
        These people are supportive of an influx of immigrants and see the vetting process as racist. When the subject of burka wearing (at the beach, for example) arises, they “feel bad for those women”. When I ask if they are comfortable when they see “those women” in their burkas, they are VERY reluctant to say they are NOT. Ultimately, they do indeed, acknowledge being uncomfortable. But they check to see if the PC watchers are anywhere nearby.
        It is sad that people cannot be honest in the open about their fears or concerns. They are, of course, the very same people who hinted at, if not outright called me, and other Hillary supporters in 2008, racist. They are also people who are torn because they now “must” vote for HRC, or betray their moral and ethical position of being on “the side of the angels”.

    Angie and I will be hosting a live episode on BlogTalk Radio tomorrow scheduled for 3pm Eastern, 2pm Central, 1pm Mountain and Noon Pacific. You are all invited to call in and share your views (or just shoot your mouth off😀 )

    Guest Co-hosts: Lola and Dandy Tiger!

    Topics will include Trump Derangement Syndrome, Media Bias, the latest “pay to play” scandal that the DOJ has refused to investigate and many other tasty items.

    I hope you can make it!

    • Anthony says:

      Here’s the url for the show

      I’ve been sick as a dog, but I’ll be making a short video as soon as I get back from Mt. Sinai Urgent Care to include in a post I’ll be publishing here tomorrow.

      Hope to hear from all of you!

    • votermom says:

      I’m excited to listen!

      I have a suggestion – during the show, remember to remind people who you are (whose voice belongs to who) specially if there are two women or two men.
      Voices can be confusing.

      • Anthony says:

        I also hope you’ll call in! Thanks for the suggestion re: voices. Angie and I will be introducing topics, and then calling on one of our guest co-hosts for their take.

        Callers are invited to call in, and when they’re on the air, they will be asked to direct their question to either one of the panel or just submit it at large. When a call comes in, standard is “Hello caller, you’re on the air! Please tell us your (Crawdad Hole) name, where you are calling from, and who you would like to answer your question”

        All calls and points of view are welcome – not looking for an echo chamber here – and the only criteria is that you NOT be disrespectful to anyone on the panel or other callers. If that happens, I’ve got a couple of “troll patrol” soundbites to unleash on anyone who insists on being an asshole

        And thanks for the mention on Book Horde – I tried to leave a comment, but it wouldn’t let me…😦

    • lateblum says:

      I saw the interview with the US women’s gold medal winner of the shot put. She had an American flag draped over her shoulders that barely covered what looked exactly like the black ammo belt seen on the recent Beyoncé tour costumes. This morning. I wondered whether NBC said she needed to cover it since she had not worn that ammo belt whilst competing. In fact, she was holding the flag after she had won the gold and her competition uniform/costume was fully exposed. No. Ammo. Belt. at that time.
      I am so tired of the racism that the AA athletes are displaying.

      • taw46 says:

        Sorry to hear that about her interview today. I saw her last night after her win, and she was very nice. She spoke about her father (who won silver in the same event in 1984) and her mother, and how she hoped other women would get into this sport (didn’t talk about race). After the event, she walked over to wave to her dad. She could not get close to him because of a physical barrier, so he passed the American flag down to her. It was a sweet and lovely moment. Here is an article about her, she has her own business.

      • taw46 says:

        This photo? Because in all fairness, I do believe this is some kind of Nike training belt.

        • lateblum says:

          Yes! That just shows how little I know. I truly liked her brief interview this morning, but when I saw the belt with what looked like cartridges, I became so disappointed again. There has been so much seemingly race-based talk that I thought this was just another demonstration.
          I am so glad you brought this photo over here!!!
          Thank you, taw. I feel bad that I not only misunderstood, but that I started a story that was not true.

          • taw46 says:

            The media is doing it to us. They are the ones pushing race. The swimmer, Simone Manuel, was fine when she got out of the pool. Later when they interviewed her, they are the ones who asked the specific questions about race, she did not bring it up. Then ran with the headlines that made it seem like she hated the police, not proud of America, etc. if I had not seen her, I would be disappointed in her, for believing she did not love her country. That is not the case, she did seem like a lovely lady. I hate, hate the media. That is why I always want to see a video of an event, if I miss a live event. I don’t trust a damn thing they say.

            And don’t feel bad, I didn’t take it that way. Anyhow, I read twitter every day and believe me, I see all of that race-based hatred. Media loves it.

        • lateblum says:

          And no. That wasn’t the photo I saw. The flag was draped over her shoulders so that on,y the part that looked like cartridges was visible.

      AA children drown at >3x the rate of White children. The AA female demographic has the lowest rate of ability to swim. The SJW response is, “disproportionate” means racism, ie segregated pools, etc.
      IIRC, about six years ago the University of Memphis, an historically black college, did a study and cultural “fear of drowning” was by far the major reason for AAs to not learn to swim.

      • blowme0bama says:

        That’s accurate. Black folks don’t swim. You don’t even see them get on a boat because they worry about it sinking.

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          We obviously need to build indoor swimming pools at every inner-city school so black kids can swim year round. And we need to buy every black family a boat.

            There will be some grant writer who will get several million dollars to do a pilot study project for this somewhere in an HRC administration.

            True story: After Obama was elected, I had a bud who wanted to get a grant to pay for our hunting leases under the guise of teaching “urban youth” responsible gun safety and reconnecting them to their outdoor heritage. We figured rent a bus three times in the fall and take a bunch of 18 & under out to dove fields and duck holes. We’d buy a bunch of expensive shotguns, buy lunch, barbeque, and pay for expensive hunting leases we’d not otherwise be able to afford. Hehh… It’s actually not a bad idea.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Wonder why we don’t see more black athletes in the winter olympics? They hate the cold or something ? Oh wait, this lovely woman was my dd’s hero in the late 80’s while she was learning backward crossovers and waltz jumps while staying upright on the ice. I just realized Debi is black. Thanks Obama and NBC. You both suck.

        • taw46 says:

          I used to watch her all the time, I don’t remember them talking about race back then. Was that when ABC carried Figure Skating?

        • blowme0bama says:

          Actually, they do hate the cold. I recall working on the loading docks in weather that was really just comfortable long sleeves type crisp morning weather, and the black guys wouldn’t go out without a jacket and warm their hands by an electric space heater they’d turned in in the shipping office. As a general proposition, black people don’t like cold weather and they don’t swim.

          • elliesmom says:

            They don’t visit national parks, and they have fewer pets.

          • blowme0bama says:

            I don’t know about either of those. Black folks I grew up with seemed to have plenty of dogs around. I played with black kids from the age of about four onwards. Went through elementary to high school with them and 1 of my best buds growing up was a black dude. Growing up in the rural south, I’m very, intimately, and comfortably familiar with black folks.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            The museums of the Smithsonian and all the memorials are another place not visited by many groups even though they have no admission fees and there is certainly public transportation. Not to mention the variety of exhibits generally mean there is something for everyone. The favorites (Natural History/Air and Space/etc.. ) have visitor stats in the millions.

            Foreign tourists -love them and you can always see large groups from Japan, South Korea, India, Poland, etc.. roaming about the mall. They love the American centric exhibits – because they came to a glimpse of what makes this country unique.

      Then they will need laptops or PCs or tablets which will be stolen or sold for food or medication or clothes or drugs and will lead to more killing and then the PO-lice being called and then being accused of ignoring the call or worse, of brutality. And then we will have riots and cities burning down and Comcast raising rates again so the 5 million kids without Internet access can have access restored.
      Rinse and repeat.

    • elliesmom says:

      It’s why we have computer centers at school and in our libraries, but honestly, teachers don’t assign homework that requires internet access at home w/o making provisions for kids who don’t have it. They’d be on the carpet for it. A lot of my students used the internet to do homework assignments that didn’t require it. I’m guessing those assignments are being counted, too. Is lack of access to technology a gatekeeper for kids? I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was. As a matter of fact, I wrote a whole master’s thesis on the subject. It’s also a gatekeeper for unemployed people looking for work. But there are a lot of ways to solve the problem w/o handing out free stuff. When I was a kid, my family’s finances couldn’t keep up with the number of books I wanted to read, but a library card solved the problem.

          I wore penny loafers, and my dad kept the slots filled with dimes. I was allowed to stop on my way home from school as long as I used one of my dimes to call home. Working at the library after school was my first “job”. I didn’t get paid in money, but I got to read all the new books first. Today’s libraries offer all kinds of services. Mine even has a sewing machine you can go and use.

        I think the government has too much control over the internet already. “Providing access” will be an excuse to extend government power.

        Look what the federal government did to education.

      She wants every home to have broadband (25Mb/s according to FCC) by 2020. While many people don’t want to pay for internet, many people are geographically unable to get wired internet. It would cost tens of billions to wire the whole country, especially places like Alaska, Wyoming and Montana due to the distances involved.

        My father-in-law lived at the end of a long country road. No internet provider was willing to extend the wires that far. He was able to get satellite service, though. Not top speed, but he got all the service he needed, and TV, too.

      In my district any kid who qualifies for free or discounted lunches can get a desktop for 150 & 9.99 internet access via Comcast. If they ever allow smartphones for the obama phone wifi calling would make the limited number of minutes a non issue. Add sling or hulu and its 30 bucks a month. I don’t have a problem with cheap internet for school kids.

    I just received an e-mail alert from my Town Patch, warning us that the heat index has reached 114 in Nassau County, Long Island. I don’t recall it ever going that high before. The heat is becoming unbearable. I never thought I’d say it, but I can’t wait until the summer is over. 😦

    Good. Now the moonbats on MSNBC will open up the issue to further debate.

      It’s no conspiracy that she looks like hell lately. I’ve seen the “medical reports”, not that I trust them, but something’s going on with her.

    ” I just realized Debi is black.”
    I met her briefly when she was a surgery resident. Her life has become a complete train wreck.

    “The best African American figure skater in history is now bankrupt and living in a trailer”

    • DeniseVB says:

      Debi made more news as a failed Olympian (*only a Bronze*) and then, a medical doctor, liberal media had to punish her for her success, rather than human bad luck and choices. I don’t think “white trash” Tonya Harding got worse treatment ?

    • swanspirit says:

      I read the whole thing. Even before I got to the part where she was diagnosed bipolar, I thought, shit, she is bipolar. One of the awful things about being bipolar, is that it can be progressive,and in some cases with psychotic features. What a shame. At least she has someone with her.

    US Olympian Kim Rhode becomes first woman to medal in six consecutive Olympics.

    Don’t expect to hear much about it.

    • lateblum says:

      NBC and NBCSports channels both had interviews with Ms Rhodes. One of the NBC
      channels covered the event – at least they covered her in the event. And NBC made a big deal about this being the sixth consecutive Olympic Games she medaled in. I was glad to see that they covered her event. I never saw any of the air rifle event but did hear about the woman, Ginny, from UVA winning the USA first Gold Medal on NBC. otherwise I might not have known about it at all. 😉

    I can’t believe they are out there in this heat!

    • DeniseVB says:

      They look young, young does better in heat than we old farts. In other news, Hillary has taken the weekend off from campaigning. Like I said, old farts……;)

      • lateblum says:

        Hillary is smart to take time away from campaigning this weekend. The weather is not kind to people struggling with debilitating illnesses or to older adults. We DO have more difficulty adapting to the changes in the weather. Especially the weather THIS summer. I know I’m having a real struggle with the heat and high humidity. It has been brutal. And I doubt it is over.
        I hope Hillary hasn’t listened closely to Jean le Carre and has saved at least one room somewhere in the Chappaqua estate that still has air conditioning. She’ll need it if she is to survive the heat in the northeast. I don’t want her to die from the hot weather or the heated campaign. I want her to lose the debates and the election.

      Great link, Venus! My favorite take-away line:

      “These are weaklings — skinny armed kids — going after the biggest guy in the neighborhood. Some of them have daddy issues. All of them are helpless. The press lost its right to set the national agenda when it ignored Clinton’s perjury over an affair with an intern. The press senses this.

      Also, eight years of walking on eggshells lest you dare say something untoward about the First Black President took its toll. “
