  • Is TDS a medical problem?

    So TDS is often tossed around as a slam on the opposition but lately I've been wondering if this isn't an actual disorder in play. The thing that got me thinking is how there have been cases of drastic personality shifts over the past couple of years. I can think of at least two forum members who during the course of Trump's running experienced a personality change so sharp that other members who were familiar with them took notice. And its not limited to here. Marriages have ended and people have had severe emotional shifts over this election and the anti Trump hysteria really seems to have gone beyond the usual "I didn't win" tantrum and into something quite a bit more pathological. We use the term "unhinged" flippantly but it really seems like this election cycle has literally and clinically caused people to come unglued.

    Is TDS just a tantrum or is there something more to it? Is it a kind of mass hysteria or similar psychological event?

    Only Trump Derangement Syndrome Can Explain Calls For Impeachment

    EXCERPT:
    ...
    For months now, progressives have been calling for President Trump’s impeachment on grounds ranging from his supposed violation of the emoluments clause to his claim that the Obama administration wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower. So many Democrats have brought up impeaching Trump that CNN now keeps a running list.

    Therefore it was only a matter of time before Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey sparked calls for impeachment from some prominent progressive, and last week Harvard professor Laurence Tribe did the honors. In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Tribe called on Congress to impeach the president for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” saying that Comey’s ouster amounts to obstruction of justice “vastly more serious than the ‘third-rate burglary’ that Nixon tried to cover up in Watergate.”

    Normally, this sort of accusation would be a serious matter. After all, Tribe is one of the most revered legal scholars in America. He has argued before the Supreme Court dozens of times and is widely respected by lawyers and lawmakers across the ideological spectrum.

    Yet Tribe’s call for impeachment rings hollow. Instead of a grave warning from a distinguished constitutional scholar, Tribe has become a high-profile example of Trump derangement syndrome—that political malady whereby pretty much everything Trump does, no matter how mundane, is a threat to our democracy and a trampling of the Constitution.

      No, is not a medical problem, because it does not result from any disease process. It is purely a psychological problem which presents as hatred, bigotry, paranoia, childish rages and tantrums caused by the inability/refusal of an otherwise adult personality to accept a given reality.

      I strongly suspect that it is part of the general sociopathic personality profile.

        I think its afflicting those who are purveyors of the liberal media who put up fake news and other garbage.

        They spend so much time watching fake news that they actually start to believe it...

                A solid argument.
                Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  The only 'solid' aspect of this is the ridicule and psychobabble of the Trumpers...

                      I rather think both sides are suffering from this "disorder". I rather liked the word "unhinged" that you used. In many ways it's like the conservatives are taking every possible advantage of being able to be snowflakes, whereas liberals are crossing the stream in the other direction and taking every opportunity to point out even the slightest deviation from any kind of norm.

                      Of course one has to remember that usually the most vocal part of any group is quite a tiny minority of that group.

                      The best so far was Trump having two scoops of ice cream with one group yelling that he should be impeached and the other yelling that the president is allowed to do such things. The rest of us, in USA and abroad, I imagine are going for the collective shrug.

                        Nope-that's why the term is in quotes in my posting.

                            'TDS' is a made-up 'problem.'

                            The problem the country now has is Trump himself. He goes from one screwup to the next.

                            I guess he just cannot help himself...

                              Is TDS any different from ODS. I can think of several posters here from conservative side who clearly suffered from it. Their ODS was much more severe than TDS currently suffered by some. Upside of ODS was that people suffering from created more entertaining conspiracy theories.
