Trump Derangement Syndrome has not waned.
Leftists are still frothing at the mouth over Trump and anyone who isn’t openly hostile toward him.
And one Trump-deranged comedian had a meltdown in public for a hilarious reason.
TDS appears to be incurable.
Even though Donald Trump has been out of office for seven months, leftists still see red anytime they hear his name.
Comedian Larry David drove that point home when he raged at former friend Alan Dershowitz at a grocery store.
From Page Six:
“It seems that Alan Dershowitz’s ties to the Trump administration have made him persona non grata among the Martha’s Vineyard elite — including Larry David. A Page Six spy spotted the Harvard Law professor — who was once, like David, a fully paid-up member of the Democratic cool kids — bumping into the comic on the porch of the island’s picturesque convenience store and community hub Chilmark General Store, and found their exchange so bizarre that they ‘wrote it down to remember it.’”
Dershowitz, an old school civil libertarian, committed the great crime of defending Trump during impeachment and not having utter contempt for him and his family.
Dershowitz has since been excommunicated from the Left Elite.
According to Page Six, the exchange between David and Dershowitz proceeded as follows:
Dershowitz: “We can still talk, Larry.”
David: “No. No. We really can’t. I saw you. I saw you with your arm around [former Trump Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo! It’s disgusting!”
Dersh: “He’s my former student [at Harvard Law]. I greet all of my former students that way. I can’t greet my former students?”
David: “It’s disgusting. Your whole enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!”
Added the stunned source, “Larry walks away. Alan takes off his T-shirt to reveal another T-shirt [underneath it] that says, ‘It’s The Constitution Stupid!’.”
We’re told Dersh “drove off in an old, dirty Volvo.”
David is inadvertently writing the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm; his encounter with Dershowitz was Curb-esque, as was his disinvitation from Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash.
The relationship between David and Dershowitz is a microcosm of how society has largely fractured along political lines.
Many on the Left have shown a complete unwillingness to share the public square with political adversaries.
Several members of Trump’s cabinet as well as other prominent Republicans have been harassed in public over the past five years.
And Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been confronted multiple times in public.
The Left’s TDS is also being fueled by the corporate press, which is getting more and more bombastic with its rhetoric.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace even floated the idea of drone-bombing Republicans.
Celebrity leftists like David are completely unmoored from reality, too caught up in their TDS to see anything else.
It’s unhealthy for society, and they’re using their platforms to spread their insanity to the rest of the country.
