P.A.T.T.

We left “XXXX derangement syndrome” in the dust last week. We are experiencing something extraordinary.  I think it should be called “Pathological Aversion To Trump” – P.A.T.T.

Believe it or not, Piers Morgan actually said something pretty smart:

This is an awful affliction that causes victims to lose the power of calm, rational thought and instead resort to uncontrollable, unrelenting outbursts of shrieking, screaming, wailing and teeth-gnashing.

Every single thing President Trump now does, says or tweets or is greeted by instant paralysis of perspective.

He is, and must remain, a ‘MONSTER!’

Morgan tries to name the affliction something that cheapens a very real and serious illness, so we don’t want to go there.  And he eventually ends up taking shots at conservatives and expressing his own Bush Derangement Syndrome – but he is absolutely correct that we are experiencing a phenomena far, far beyond reason.

I must confess I get part of it.  If there is one part of the presidency Trump has grasped better than any other – it is the media star role involved.  Most presidents have shunned it, or basked in it with false humility – but Trump relishes it, playing the heavy role he perfected on reality TV.  His morning Tweet storms polish that image like my mom polished the silver when I was a kid.

But here is where it gets interesting, and the point that Morgan misses – People suffering from P.A.T.T. are stuck and cannot function, and we can keep moving right on with our agenda.
