The political scene here in the United States has been turbulent in recent years, after Donald Trump’s meteoric impact on the way in which the Beltway operates threatened the establishment and the status quo.
The shift in political perceptions was often too much for the liberal left, who began resorting to hysteria and violence almost immediately after Trump took office. In the ensuing years, we even coined a rather apropos nickname for their unhinged behavior: Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Now, even as Trump looks to secure reelection from outside of the Oval Office, TDS remains a very real problem for the Democrats, as evidenced by the latest ugly incident involving Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said Monday night that she was “attacked” by an “insane woman” at a restaurant and yelled at by the woman’s son over her political stances.
The congresswoman claims the incident was sparked by a difference of political opinions and that the mother-son duo had “no respect” for opposing viewpoints.
“They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views,” Greene wrote in a tweet. “They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control.”
And then, a but more bluntly:
“I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons,” she explained. “People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone.”
Greene has been an unapologetic supporter of the MAGA Movement, leaving little doubt as to the motivation of her harassers.
