Trump Derangement Syndrome: More contagious than the coronavirus
By Bonnie Chernin
October 4, 2020

It’s hard to believe that there are people in the media and Democratic Party ranks – whether they openly admit it or not – that have a death wish for President Trump. Upon learning that President Trump has the coronavirus a former Hillary Clinton spokesperson published this tweet: “I hope he dies.”

Among the malevolent media elite the verbal bile is chronic and contagious, centering around ousting President Trump from office and rehashing the coronavirus debate. As Curtis Houck writes:

“Throughout Friday’s early hours, CNNers repeatedly expressed best wishes to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump after having tested positive for the coronavirus. But behind those best wishes, CNN not only levied their usual, poisonous rhetoric, but plenty of subliminal levels of apocalyptic brainstorming, gloating, and calls for a return to global lockdowns.”

Media correspondents and TV anchors are in the pockets of the Democratic Party. They gloat and ask leading questions, conjuring up worst case scenarios as to President Trump’s illness, surmising what would happen should his symptoms worsen. Political analyst Carl Bernstein called for more draconian lockdowns. CBS is calling President Trump’s diagnosis the “October surprise.” One correspondent asked what would happen if Vice President Pence should get sick. Why assume the vice president is sick when so far he has tested negative?

They are not asking questions out of compassion or to inform their viewers. They are pushing the panic button. These commentators and journalists know perfectly well who is next in line should President Trump be unable to fulfill his duties. If their readers graduated grammar school they know as well. Why focus on doom and gloom unless their motive is to sway independent voters away from President Trump and change the election outcome.

Since President Trump entered Walter Reed Hospital, the president’s physician has held daily press conferences. Dr. Sean Conley gave an optimistic and upbeat assessment indicating that President Trump is recovering nicely. Updates by Dr. Conley and the president’s medical team will follow daily.

The best wishes for President Trump’s recovery come from outside the United States. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted: “Like millions of Israelis, Sara and I are thinking of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump and wish our friends a full and speedy recovery.” Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini tweeted: "In Italy and in the world, whoever celebrates the illness of a man or of a woman, and who comes to wish the death of a neighbor, confirms what he is: An idiot without soul. A hug to Melania and Donald.”

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee went into high gear, demanding that Sen. Lindsay Graham delay the hearings to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Nothing doing. Sen. Mitch McConnell said they are moving full speed ahead with the hearings beginning on October 12th.

Real Clear Politics tracks the national polls and shows President Trump trailing Joe Biden in most battleground states. But the numbers are in the margin of error in many states. A new Gallup poll found that most Americans believe President Trump will win the election. The president’s approval numbers are at its highest point since May. The unemployment rate has dropped to 7.9% percent, which is equal to Obama’s unemployment numbers right before the 2012 election. President Trump has cut the unemployment rate almost in half since April 2020. This is a surprising positive development because President Trump achieved these numbers during a global pandemic which Obama never had to deal with.

The economy is recovering. However, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio just announced another lockdown in selected zip codes here in Brooklyn and Queens. That will impact bars and restaurants, schools, gyms, hair salons, and more. If Mayor de Blasio has his way, businesses that have started to come back will go under and more people will lose their jobs.

If President Trump recovers quickly there could be a sympathy vote and he can easily win reelection. We pray for a quick and full recovery for President Trump.
