The entire Republican party has Stockholm Syndrome. Trump is holding it hostage and in order for it to survive it is aligning itself with its captor. If they’re going down, they’re taking the whole country with them.
Trump is threatening to revoke the security clearances of high officials who say bad things about him. Message received: Do anything to embarrass or implicate Trump in a crime, and you’ll get your security clearance taken away. It’s called Dicktator Syndrome and Trump got it from hanging around Kim Jong-un and Putin.
Trump wants to pull clearances from anyone who makes accusations about him and Russia. The entire intelligence community is at risk here.
The feds have 12 tapes recorded by Michael Cohen. This has resulted in Michael Cohen coming down with a bad case of I Love My Country and I’m Such a Great Patriot Syndrome. From here on out he’s going to do what’s best for America. Other people are catching this too, after they get caught.
The judge in Paul Manafort’s case said that 5 witnesses could testify with immunity but their names had to be made public. The trial has been postponed 6 days while the defendant perfects his own version of Stockholm Syndrome (not the “I’ve been kidnapped and have fallen in love with my kidnapper kind,” the Swiss bank kind.)
Somebody threw a brick through Democratic Senator Mark Warner’s office window. The suspect has been arrested. His name is James Trainor. It is not known yet if he suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome but it is known that he spent 5 years in jail for attempted second-degree murder.
Russia is going to keep attacking us until they are STOPPED. For that to happen, Trump and the Republicans must be stopped. In order for Trump and the Republicans to be stopped, the Democrats have to win in November. In order for the Democrats to win in November everybody and their brother needs to get out and vote because the Republicans are going to cheat. Bombard the polls so Russia can’t attack us with Trump’s 400 Pound Hacker Syndrome.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Jim Jordan is drilling down on the whackadoodledoo Deep State Conspiracy Theory Syndrome. If he were smart, he’d hang low instead of reminding us that he’s both a crazy right wing tea party nut AND a pervert’s helper.
Newt Gingrich went on Fox News and compared Trump to Lincoln. Trump thinks he’s more popular than Lincoln. Lincoln is not only rolling over in his grave, he fell right out of it.
Trump has an approval rating of 88%. Registered Republicans make up about 26% of the electorate which makes Trump’s true approval rating about 23% overall — the exact number of Fox News viewers, white nationalists, and stupid people in America.
Trump supporters suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect. It is a type of cognitive bias where people with very little expertise or ability think they have superior expertise or ability. They’re too stupid to know that they’re stupid so they elect politicians that suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect who are so stupid they’re susceptible to pulling down their pants to expose their bare butts while yelling “America” on camera.
We went from $380 million in election security funding to zero, thanks to the Republicans who suffer from the Win at All Costs Syndrome.
Half of the kids under 5 have been reunited with their parents. The rest have been deemed “ineligible.” The government isn’t going to give them back. 400 parents have been deported without their kids. There isn’t a syndrome for this. It’s just plain unforgivable and cruel.

America has irritable bowel syndrome. We’re cranky.
Make it stop.
