Trump derangement syndrome
In my wanderings across American Culture I have occasionally come upon people siting a condition called "Trump Derangement Syndrome". Apparently this refers to people who are so apoplectic about the President of the United States that they somehow take leave of their senses by being all... angry. Really really angry. Unreasonably angry!
Being, as I am, susceptible to these feelings of rage, alarm, and disgust at Trump and what he means about my Country, humanity, and the state of the world, I have decided to take stock.
And so I asked myself: "Self, is it wrong to get angry at evil?"
And so as I leave you to go wandering some more out in Internetland I will look upon the mentions of "Trump Derangement Syndrome" with fresh eyes.
"Oh calm down." They are saying. "Don't you want to do evil too?"
