Seriously. they dropped into my lap.

Of course, those with Trump Derangement Syndrome have lost theirs long before the Chink Virus ever crossed anyone’s lips.

Is “Trump Derangement Syndrome” a Real Mental Condition?

Oddly, those who are making the claim have never examined the President, therefore their comments are worth a quartet piece of toilet paper.

As the image above clearly depicts they are made up of the lefties who can’t seem to grasp reality.

Many clinicians, political commentators, and members of the public have speculated upon the mental health of President Donald Trump.

Indeed, over 70,000 people self-identifying as “mental health professionals” have signed a petition declaring that “Trump is mentally ill and must be removed.”

Unlike his detractors, which are many, and continue to have nervous breakdowns.

In sociological terms, the “medical gaze” has been hitherto focused on President Trump, and to a lesser extent his ardent supporters.

However, in recent months, many have been questioning the direction of this “medical gaze.” 

In fact, more and more people are suggesting that this “medical gaze” should be reversed and refocused on President Trump’s most embittered and partisan opponents.

Some have even suggested that these opponents are experiencing a specific mental condition—a condition which has been labeled “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (TDS).

What does DSM-5 say about “Trump Derangement Syndrome”?

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition ...

Mental illnesses are officially classified in a dense and dry book published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

This book contains 947 pages and lists hundreds of mental disorders; TDS is nowhere to be seen.

Similarly, a review of scholarly databases such as MEDLINE and Google Scholar reveal no academic papers on this alleged syndrome.

Officially at least, TDS is not a real, diagnosable, or treatable mental disorder.

That said, medical anthropologists and critical sociologists have convincingly argued that DSM-5 is a flawed document.

Indeed, social scientists have long recognized that there are numerous “folk categories” of mental disorders that are considered real conditions by the general public, even though they are not recognized as such in the DSM.

These include categories such as “burnout” or “nervous breakdown.”

As such, lack of official recognition does not mean that TDS is not a real mental condition.

Lay Understandings of “Trump Derangement Syndrome

There is no shared lay understanding of TDS, mainly because it is a folk category rather than a professional category.

As such, there is currently much armchair speculation about the nature and existence of TDS, without consensus.

The name itself explicitly suggests a “syndrome,” which the Oxford English Dictionary defines as “a characteristic combination of opinions, emotions, or behavior.”

Several commentators have run with this, putting forth suggestions about opinions, emotions and behaviors characterizing TDS.

Shared amongst these is a notion that the everyday activities of President Trump trigger some people into distorted opinions, extreme emotions and hysterical behaviors.

Bernard Goldberg

Well-known writer Bernard Goldberg gives supposed behavioral examples of TDS among Trump’s political opponents, including fainting, vomiting, students retreating to “safe spaces” and others demanding “therapy dogs.” 

Political commentator Justin Raimondo focuses on opinions, language, and cognition, writing in the LA Times that “sufferers speak a distinctive language consisting of hyperbole [leading to] a constant state of hysteria… the afflicted lose touch with reality.” article continues after advertisement

Such forms of highly emotional reaction could be something akin to the fainting and screaming characterizing American Beatlemania in the 1960s.

Unlike the Beatles, however, the extreme emotional reaction alleged to characterize TDS is not based on adoration and admiration, but on fear and loathing.

Contrariwise, many others ridicule the notion that TDS is anything but a malicious slur term used to discredit and delegitimize criticism of President Trump.

For example, CNN’s Chris Cillizza may speak for many when he stated: “The truth is that TDS is just the preferred nomenclature of Trump defenders who view those who oppose him and his policies as nothing more than blind hatred.”

Likewise, Adam Gopnik writes that “our problem is not TDS; our problem is Deranged Trump Self-Delusion.”

In other words, there are polarized opinions about the nature, reality and existence of TDS.


The wider public may be unaware that psychiatrists and social scientists spend considerable time and energy behind closed doors pondering over the existence and reality of mental conditions.

This has led the APA to revise the DSM five times since 1952, considerably expanding the list of official mental disorders with each revision.

As far as I am aware, few psychiatrists are currently arguing that DSM-6 should contain TDS as a mental disorder.

That said, in its official definition of mental disorder, the DSM-5 states that “a mental disorder is a syndrome characterized by clinically significant disturbance in an individual’s cognition, emotion regulation, or behavior…mental disorders are usually associated with significant distress in social, occupational, or other important activities.”

Many have argued that some people have been seriously disturbed and distressed by the policies, speech, behavior, and tweets of President Trump, so much so that it has affected their cognitive, affective, and behavioral functioning.

Such people may need mental health support. As such, further research is necessary to investigate the extreme reactions toward President Trump, in the same way, that researchers investigate other extreme social phenomena, such as Beatlemania or the like.

This will shed light on the reality of this emerging folk category that has been labeled by many as “Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  1. Freedom of Speech! says:

    It will be very interesting to see what develops after the 2020 Election. Assuming that President Trump is elected to another term, which certainly appears to be probable, then what? Are the affected people no longer to be considered mentally stable? If so, then what?
    American society appears to be headed toward a Restricted Speech philosophy. Very strange given the First Amendment.

    The few are now demanding compliance by the others to their newly established standards. What is a free society to do in the face of such movements? The 1960’s saw the Free Speech Movement in California. The Free Speech Movement (FSM) at the University of California at Berkeley during the Fall 1964 semester was the first of the 1960s campus student movements to make headlines all over the world. The so-called at the time RADICALS at U. C. Berkley took the position of all speech is free and protected to be so according to the First Amendment. Of course, the offensive speech by people was irritating to selected members of society but that was the precise point of the First Amendment – to protect speech as to what ever people chose to say. As I recall the specific word was FUCK.

    Eventually the issue went forward in New York with Fox News being the carrier of the filthy speech matter. Ultimately the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York said that it is “arbitrary and capricious” for the FCC to prohibit primetime profanity, in essence saying it violates free-speech protections. A spokesman for Fox said that “government regulation of content serves no purpose other than to chill artistic expression in violation of the First Amendment”.

    Time will tell in this case! The “Free Speech Movement” appears to have started in the fall of 1964 and was resolved in the 1980’s

      Perfect, and as American’s have taken enough of the leftist trampling of the Constitution handed down from God through the writings of our founding fathers, that led will fly.
