Van Jones, President Obama’s former disgraced “green jobs czar,” “truther” and admitted communist has a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Derangement Syndrome was first recognized during the 2004 presidential campaign, when columnist Charles Krauthammer — who was board certified in psychiatry in 1984, defined Bush Derangement Syndrome:
Bush Derangement Syndrome: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.
Krauthammer’s diagnosis of Howard Dean was prescient. Dean’s condition worsened as evidenced by his demonic yeowl, which you can watch here, after finishing third in the Iowa Democrats’ caucuses. Dean’s yeowl is still consistently portrayed as a media gaffe that ended his presidential campaign.
During the 2016 presidential election, the affliction mutated into a more creepy affliction — Trump Anxiety. Now As Van Jones demonstrates, the malady has morphed into Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Wednesday, Jones was caught defending the mobs out “protesting” the election of Donald Trump to be our next President and “their fear of internment camps” Jones snapped at Jeff Lord and Kayleigh McEnany saying:
“You guys won and you need to back off! You need to have a little bit of empathy and understanding.”
The conversation reached a fever pitch when McEnany called on Jones to repudiate fears among protesters that Trump might create internment camps for illegal immigrants:
“Donald Trump has never proposed internment camps,” she said. “You have to correct that fear.”
“You don’t get to lecture me on this stage,” Jones snapped back. “You guys won, and you need to back off. You need to have a little bit of empathy and understanding for people who are afraid, because your candidate has been one of the most explosively provocative candidates in the history of our country. And there’s a price to be paid for that.”
To Jones that means letting the mob have its way. Jones ended the heated exchange with this inflammatory remark:
“If you want unity, we have to hear the pain first before you tell people they’re wrong to hurt.”
The contentious exchange in the following video clip:
On Tuesday, shocked when Trump’s electoral victory became obvious, Jones also lashed out crediting Trump’s victory to racism. Jones got all teary eyed as he characterized Trump’s victory as “a white-lash against a changing country.”
This sort of uncivil discourse is nothing new for Jones. He was one of the few Obama acolytes that Obama let go. Jones, resignation came in the dead of night during a Labor Day weekend. There were many reasons for cutting Jones loose. Jones was a Truther, as you can see here and here. Jones was also an admitted communist, which the New York Times tried to diminish. Then there was the video of Jones calling Republicans a**holes. And Jones’ vile hate filled rants that make Jones look as outrageous as Obama’s hateful former spiritual adviser Jeremiah Wright and Obama’s Terrorist associate Bill Ayers, which can be found a hate-filled record album and a video of Jones calling President Bush a crackhead. All of these reasons to dump Jones were detailed here.
