Fear not good people, TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — is alive and well and, if drinking a carbonated beverage, will still make you spew it out your nose in laughter.
First, let’s look at the story from an — ahem — MSM viewpoint, as Philly.com writes:
CNN host Fareed Zakaria gets profane in uncensored Trump discussion
by Rob Tornoe
Late Friday night, CNN host Fareed Zakaria had some complaints about President Trump that revolved around one word in particular.
My. What might that be?
Appearing beside host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight in a discussion about the president’s unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election, a frustrated Zakaria said Trump is “indifferent” to the truth before launching into a profanity-laced comment about the commander-in-chief.
Ah, the buttery goodness of the informed, cogent, rational, level-headed, sensitive, well-grounded cadre of Leftists.
After all, everyone knows emesis of that nature advances the argument of mainstream media outlets.
Recent DNC chairs; Debbie Wasserman Schultz (L), resigned July 2016, current interim DNC chair Donna Brazile (R).
It is no shock that the Demorats are in a very serious kerfuffle. Of the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance), Demorats have hung up on the transition from denial to anger.
Following the scabrous and failed terms of Debbie Wasserman Schultz who resigned as DNC Chair in July of 2016 due to the exposed emails indicating the obvious (and successful) attempt by the Dems and DNC to completely sabotage the candidacy of Bernie Sanders, Donna Brazile stepped in as interim chair.
This is the same Donna Brazile — by the way, a former CNN analyst, fired on October 14th of last year — who leaked and fed CNN town hall debate questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign and later said “I’ll send a few more.” She also pushed back at CNN over coverage of the Clinton campaign. As in, CNN thought about changing up their standard fluffy softball questions to some a bit more probing, such as “what’s your favorite kind of cat” or “did you get your $10,000 coat on sale?”
As WikiLeaks has shown us, from one single email account, quote approval by sources does happen. Sharing stories in advance with presidential campaigns does happen. Collusion via sharing debate questions in advance does happen. Reporters advising and/or cheering on campaigns does happen.
Facts in evidence, though Brazile had the temerity to deny them — another fabrication.
Up for DNC Chair is Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota (5th District), who was sworn in on the Koran. A black Muslim, you see. The proverbial Demorat “best of both worlds,” a “two-fer” if you will.
Let’s let Kevin Jackson, executive director of The BlackSphere, tell you about Keith Ellison.
An “ethnocentric racist” who wants to establish a separate country just for blacks. Perfect. Further, he does indeed have ties to Islamist causes. Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org wrote of Ellison:
Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”
It gets worse. In 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” That’s from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.
Yes, Keith Ellison would make a wonderful Democratic National Committee chair, a position that will come up for vote in February.
Let’s shift gears and watch Sally Boynton Brown, another candidate for DNC chair (and current Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director), trot out the reasons she should be installed.
It’s interesting to watch the black male and black female in the background of her speech, nodding and smiling, thinking “she is going to make one very useful tool.”
It’s also interesting to note the verbal pandering she proffers to blacks when she says “and I can’t do it without y’all.” Naked pandering because, as she admits, she’s from Idaho and I’ll wager absolutely no one says “ya’all” in Idaho. And certainly not her, when she returns.
Does it not sound something like this, from Hillary Rodham Clinton?
Note to Brown and the DNC: keep it up. Please, please, please continue to double down on stupid, unforgiving and daft. You truly have learned nothing from your defeat in November and, for that, I thank you.
You know you can’t win on details or on facts or issues themselves. All you have left — as emphasized by Mr Obama — is a greater focus on division and identity politics using emotions manipulated to the Nth degree. Everything, to Demorats, distills down to only race or gender.
So, go ahead: please make the Demorat Party the party of Hate Caucasoids. Make Caucasoids of all shapes and sizes uncomfortable to be associated with you. Scourge them. Make them hold you at arms’ length. That’s perfectly in keeping with the Demorats being the party of the Little Guy because — in California and moving to other states — Caucasoids are in fact the demographic minority now. It’s also in keeping with the Demorats being the party of peace, tolerance, inclusivity and open-mindedness.
I say again: please-oh-please install either Ellison or Brown as DNC chair.
Representative John Lewis (D-GA), believes that Trump is an illegitimate president-elect, despite the election, despite the electoral college, and despite Vice President Joe Biden’s declaration that the election is over and Donald Trump won.
John Lewis doesn’t think Donald Trump is a legitimate president
by Aaron Blake
For the first time, a leading Democrat has called into question Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president.
Rep. John Lewis, a Democratic congressman from Georgia and civil-rights icon, told NBC’s Chuck Todd in an interview for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” that he believes Russia’s alleged hacking aimed at helping Trump in the 2016 race makes Trump an illegitimate president.
Asked whether he would forge a relationship with President-elect Trump, Lewis said, “It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”
He added: “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.” Lewis called it a “conspiracy” and added: “That’s not right. That’s not fair. That’s not the open democratic process.”
TDS doesn’t stop there. Former press secretary for Hillary Clinton, Brian Fallon, in an interview with CNN, also said Trump isn’t legitimate.
“Every day there are new developments, new shoes dropping so to speak that call into question the legitimacy of his win.”
Just as Obama has defecated on America in his last days, the Demorats and Leftists are leaving as many of their own proverbial land mines in the way of Donald Trump quite purposefully.
The conflict will not diminish. Demorats are seeing to that.
Note to the GOP: you’d best get your arses together and support Trump’s work.
Having Paul Ryan say on Friday that Trump’s lobbying ban is “dangerous” tells me that he too has sloshed down too much of the DC fruity juice.
The first major issue this past week involving TDS occurred between two male married Leftists on a Jet Blue flight, who decided the interior of a thin aluminum tube was the perfect place to publicly excoriate the daughter of president-elect Donald Trump, Ivanka, in front of her husband and three children. This was not a private flight but a common carrier in coach class.
The American Media Maggots are, therefore, doing their level best to minimize and couch the facts. From the WashingtonExaminer.com:
Newsrooms are sanitizing that Ivanka harassment story
by T. Becket Adams
Two men were ejected from a JetBlue flight Thursday for reportedly harassing Ivanka Trump and her three children.
We know about the alleged incident because one of the men tweeted about it in real-time, and JetBlue confirmed in a statement that there was indeed a “conflict” aboard one of its planes.
But despite the airline’s statement, and the fact that one of the men involved specifically used the word “harass,” some headlines have sanitized the reported incident to the point where it’s basically a story about nothing.
Even before the flight itself, the man who created the incident Tweeted:
Do people not realize that most everything today is immured digitally in some fashion?
Here is what Twitter user and Hunter College professor Matthew Lasner tweeted Thursday morning about his husband: “Ivanka and [her husband Jared Kushner] at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil.”
He then tweeted picture of Trump’s daughter, with the caption, “Ivanka just before [JetBlue] kicked us off our flight when a flt attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.”
The photo and Tweet itself are above.
Lasner later deleted the tweets, and he appears to have suspended his Twitter account altogether following the incident.
Imagine that. Leftists trying to erase evidence of bad or unethical behavior. Perhaps we’ve seen this somewhere before? Recently? Sound familiar?
According to TIME, a male passenger on the flight reportedly began shouting at Trump, saying, “Your father is ruining the country.” The passenger and his husband were removed from the flight shortly after. One of the passengers involved, Matthew Lassner, tweeted about the events, before later deleting the tweets, saying, “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chased them down to harass them. #banalityofevil” and “Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.” This contradicts that the passenger had been “yelling” at Trump, but ultimately JetBlue did decide to remove them for “causing conflict.”
Let’s read an actual news outlet’s coverage of the incident, from the UKDailyMail.com:
REVEALED: The Brooklyn lawyer who chased down Ivanka on a JetBlue flight and his Hillary supporter husband who BOASTED about the verbal attack before they were thrown off
by Chris Spargo
A passenger on a JetBlue flight accosted Ivanka Trump on Thursday morning
‘Your father is ruining the country,’ said Dan Goldstein, a lawyer from Brooklyn, who had a child in his arms
He then began demanding to know why Ivanka was on the flight and not travelling on a private plane while she sat with her kids
Ivanka ignored him and tried to preoccupy her children with crayons while the man berated her
A fellow passenger said later that Ivanka told security and flight staff she did not want to make the incident a thing and have anyone removed from the flight
The man’s husband, Matthew Lasner, later tweeted: ‘My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off’
However one hour before that he wrote on Twitter: ‘Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them’
Lasner and Goldstein were accommodated on the next available flight according to JetBlue, and Lasner deleted his Twitter account soon after
Ivanka and her family are heading away for the holiday, meaning they will be spending 12 straight hours on the plane
A Brooklyn lawyer confronted Ivanka Trump and said her father is ‘ruining this country’ while she was on a plane with her children.
Dan Goldstein and his Hillary supporter husband Matthew Lasner were thrown off of the JetBlue flight from New York to San Francisco on Thursday when they accosted the future first daughter and started shouting at her.
While holding a child in his arms Goldstein, 35, began screaming: ‘Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.’
Then let’s read what a great deal of the American Media Maggots wrote:
From the Associated Press: “Man says he and husband removed from JetBlue flight after ‘expressing displeasure’ that Ivanka Trump was aboard.”
From Yahoo News: “Man kicked off JetBlue flight for questioning why Ivanka Trump was on it.”
