Trump Resplendent?


For John, BLUFLife is hard.  It is harder when you are a Democrat.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




I am not keeping up.  It seems Washington Post Blogger Chris Cillizza, "The Fix", is now with CNN as Editor-at-large.

Much has been written about how President Trump's election has had a profound impact on the Republican party.   What's drawn less attention — but deserves more! -- is how Trump is affecting Democrats.

Sure, we've seen coverage of how Trump's election has emboldened the liberal left whose call for confrontation at all times has become the rallying cry of the party.  (This New Yorker profile of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer describes the rapid evolution from compromise to confrontation well.)

What's drawn less attention is how Trump's presidency has convinced liberals that every bad thing whispered about any Republican is, by default, true.  Consider that in the last week alone, liberal outrage has been sparked on (at least) four occasions by alleged incidents that simply aren't accurate.

Then Editor-at-large Cillizza goes on to discuss the four.

Mr Cillizza doesn't use the term "Trump Derangement Syndrome", but it is "Trump Derangement Syndrome".

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
