A psychologist from the deep, deep blue state of Illinois claims that “Trump Anxiety Disorder” is making America mentally ill.
Jennifer Panning, a psychologist from Evanston, Illinois, a northern Chicago suburb, claims that Trump’s “provocation, brinkmanship, and self-drama” is driving America to the edge of sanity — even those who don’t pay any attention to politics.
Coming from a state with the worst pension bombs and deepest government debt in the country, the highest property taxes, an increasing number of local politicians ending up in jail, and the most citizens fleeing their state, that is quite an accusation. And all that happened long before Trump ever came around!
Panning claims her “Trump Anxiety Disorder” is marked by symptoms such as “increased worry, obsessive thought patterns, muscle tension and obsessive preoccupation with the news,” Raw Story reported.
Another therapist, Cynthia Baum-Baicker adds that she is treating a couple who are having bedroom problems because one supports Trump and the other does not.
You can bet it is the liberal who has the problem in that coupling.
“Authority figures represent the parent, [so] President Trump seats in the seat of parent for all Americans,” explained Baum-Baicker. “So now, my ‘father figure’ is a bully, is an authoritarian who doesn’t believe in studying and doing homework. … [Rather than reassurance] he creates uncertainty.”
Yep, just as I thought. Another leftists whining about “toxic masculinity.”
Raw Story adds:
Trump’s deleterious effect on peoples’ mental health isn’t just affecting liberals –even conservatives are having anxiety issues.
“Conservatives are hurting, too,” Washington D.C. psychotherapist Elisabeth Joy LaMotte added. “I view this anxiety as collective in a very strong sense. They’re hurting in part because they feel they don’t have permission to share their real views, or they feel conflicted because they agree with things that the president is doing but they’re uncomfortable with his language and tactics…. And they feel alienated and isolated from friends and family who differ from their views, as if there’s not permission to view it in a different way in D.C.”
Sounds like a lot of snowflakes, to me. How about you?
You can bet that it really is only liberals “suffering” from this fake “illness.” Liberals are mentally disturbed from the start, after all.
