When President Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, at least one celebrity realized she needed psychological treatment and care. Comedienne Chelsea Handler saw the signs of a complete breakdown manifest. And although her condition had yet to be labeled, Handler recently confessed that she suffered “Trump Derangement Syndrome” — or TDS.
Although the silent majority who elected President Trump crack wise about liberal snowflakes such as Handler losing their … business, the activist and talk show host admits she was unable to reconcile her radical extremism with the stunning conservative win.
“I had a midlife identity crisis once Trump won because I had never had my world feel so unhinged, I think,” Handler said. “I had to pay a psychiatrist to listen to me b&*% about Donald Trump for about the first three weeks.”
If her lack of mental fortitude borders on pathetic to hard-working conservative Americans, Handler has come full circle to understand that her liberal sensibility is frail, to say the least. She reportedly opened up about her TDS on Real Time with Bill Maher.
“And I realized just how spoiled and privileged I had been all my life to realize — to be this upset and this on-a-10 every day and the outrage and the anger. I just wanted to f–ing fight people, you know? And I was like, ‘I have to go see a psychiatrist,’” Handler said. “I pivoted, I pivoted towards weed and cannabis. And for me, who’s kind of a very active and high-strung person, I needed — the cannabis was a gateway drug to meditation.”
Many recall Maher hoping for an economic collapse, rampant unemployment, and a stock market crash just to prove President Trump’s policies were not uplifting Americans. Talk about TDS! Hardy conservative Americans who previously scratched their heads trying to comprehend the confused thoughts and emotions swirling in the liberal mind — this is a dark glimpse.
Conservative talk show host Greg Gutfeld of Fox News’ The Five was kind enough to cut Handler some slack after her confession. At least she came forward, and that may help others reconcile the fact that Democrats put perhaps their worst candidate for president forward in the midst of backstabbing Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders against a populist icon and household name, “Trump.”
The fallout was exacerbated by the fact the fake news media had not been fully exposed for its biased, misleading and factually-incorrect reporting. Networks such as CNN and MSNBC didn’t just give the nod to Hillary. They assured liberals that the opposition had no pathway to the White House.
In hindsight, other Democrats are starting to come to grips with the fact that the left was upended due to ineffective economic and trade policies and selecting a “nasty woman” as the party’s torchbearer.
For example, U.S. Attorney in New York Preet Bharara uncharacteristically went off the rails after Hillary was soundly defeated. These days he reportedly says he wasn’t “thinking fully rationally” after the election, and that prompted Trump to fire him from his post. Up until then, Bharara was widely considered a level-headed and impartially determined prosecutor. TDS tripped up more than a few liberals.
That being said, numerous prominent liberals have apparently not sought help for their psychosis. Alec Baldwin, who plays President Trump on the formerly funny Saturday Night Live, has shown signs of a psychological break with reality. He recently claimed he could go toe-to-toe with Trump.
If I ran for President, would you vote for me?” Baldwin tweeted. “I won’t ask you for any $. And I promise I will win. Beating Trump would be so easy. So easy. So easy.”
Since the 2016 election, Baldwin has made plenty of splashy headlines for aggressive and unhinged behavior. He was arrested and charged with assault over a parking spot. After taking a guilty plea, he was sentenced to anger management.
“When you go to anger management you realize you’re not that angry,” he said with a laugh.
Alec, that’s called denial. Perhaps Chelsea Handler could pass along the name of a good TDS therapist!
