Therapists seeing patients with Trump Derangement Syndrome

By Kyle Perisic

Therapists around Washington, D.C., are noticing a sharp increase in patients describing symptoms of what has been called Trump Derangement Syndrome.

“There is a fear of the world ending,” said DC Counseling and Psychotherapy Center founder, Elisabeth LaMotte, referring to some of President Donald Trump’s decisions. “It’s very disorienting and constantly unsettling.”

LaMotte described an uptick in her patients describing what the right refers to as Trump Derangement Syndrome, CBC reported Saturday. “Is he gonna blow us all up?” one of her patients asked.

Urban Dictionary defines Trump Derangement Syndrome as “a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.”

Clinical psychologist Jennifer Panning calls it “Trump Anxiety Disorder” because “symptoms were specific to the election of Trump and the resultant unpredictable sociopolitical climate.”

Trump himself tweeted about the disorder July 18, saying those on the left “would rather go to war” with Russia than see a peace talk.

LaMotte added that she’s treated some Trump supporters as well, mostly because friends and families have alienated them for publicly supporting the president.

Washington therapist Steven Stosny recounted treating a member of the Trump administration and the toll it took on his family-life.

“His daughter was starting to hate him,” Stosny said. “It was very hard on his spouse, too. The wife couldn’t take it anymore. It’s tough when one spouse is at war with the children.”

While Stosny’s patient left the administration, the couple divorced.

  1. We should send our young to therapists, after all they are exposed (from a very young age) to the far left liberal public education monopoly and the mainstream media. Indoctrination at its worst.

  2. Just goes to show that there are a lot more deranged, sick people out there than we thought. Society is teaching them the hate and is scaring the crap out of them. It’s unbelievable how easy it is to break these people. This country is really going to crap. (not the word I wanted to use)

    These are the leftist Idiots that cannot face reality, maybe it’s time
    to re-open the institutions ……. you got to love it !!!

  4. Leftardism is a mental disorder,I hope they get the treatment they so desperately need and deserve,seeing as how it was the left that decimated the mental health system.

  5. We certainly went from liberals declaring President Trump to be mentally unfit for the office to them seeking mental health treatment in record time.

  6. Let us hope they will be so deranged they forget to vote in November.
    By the time they realize it people likely are having a merry Xmas with full employment.
