The New York Times to offer TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) inoculations at their New York headquarters
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 31, 2019:
NEW YORK CITY - The New York Times will offer TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) inoculation shots at their office on Eighth Avenue in New York City to help people who are infected with an irrational and inordinate hatred of Pres. Donald Trump. The NYT was chosen a a site for the inoculations because of the anti-Trump fever and emotional entanglement with his words and actions at the newspaper.
Some say evidence of this derangement is an inability to see humor in anything the president says, or take everything he says seriously.
One example of this was when the president called himself "the chosen one." The president looked up into the sky, as to make it seem like he was chosen by God, when in fact, he simply chose to take on the problem of unfair trade with China, that had been plaguing the U.S. for decades.
Some news outlets, like the Washington Post, are obsessed with fact checking everything he says, unlike Pres. Obama, who was given a clean bill of mental health, and was never known to utter a falsehood.
Here is one definition of Trump Derangement Syndrome: a neologism used to describe a reaction to United States President DonaldTrump by liberals, progressives, and anti-Trump conservatives, who are said to respond to Trump's statements and political actions irrationally, with little regard to his actual position or action taken.
Some psychologists say they have seen an increase in patients who stress over politics after Trump's election. A prevalent symptom of the disorder is having the feeling that the world is going to end.
Other psychologists call it "Trump Anxiety Disorder," which includes "feeling a loss of control and helplessness and worrying about what's happening in the country."
A. G. Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times, said the the majority of news people at the paper are problems inflicted with TDS or TAS, and that the inoculation would possibly help people.
“We do have people in our employ who obsess with the president and what he says," Sulzberger said. "We want to help them as much we can if it's affecting their mental health."
Dean Baquet, executive editor at the newspaper, said some reporters are embarrassed by how much they are affected by the president, and have had to take off work because of mental health concerns.
"We have some reporters who have gone over the edge in their dislike of the president, and have Tweeted some things that they probably should not have."
Other executives at the paper, including Meredith Kopit Levein, support the effort if it will help people at the paper.
"Even if it's a placebo, if it helps someone deal with their mental health, I'm all for it."
Newsrooms like the New York Times seek a diverse, inclusive workplace, that they say are essential to the mission of seeking the truth and helping people understand the world. Yet, diversity and inclusiveness, for liberals like many who work at the NYT, usually does not mean diversity of thought and opinion. That means Trump supporter there should avoid reasoned discussions with liberals to keep them from being infected with TDS or TAS.
Representatives at the newspaper will be providing updates to the general public about when the inoculations or vaccines will be given.
