Deletion of questions[edit]

There was a who and whom question in the first paragraph. I deleted both. This change was made to the article on July 18, 2018; after Donald Trump himself talked about the "trump derangement syndrome" on a twitter post. The purpose of this change was to make the article seem more dubious and wasn't directed at the article itself but coincides with the publication of the twitter post. This is an obvious attempt but regarding whoever made the "whom" and "who" change; there are many references to check in the bottom of the page. There is a journal paper which did a meta analytic study confirming bias on both sides and talks about this derangement syndrome, if someone is interested check on google scholar. I'm not citing it as I don't feel it to be that important for my time. You can add it in reference, just follow wiki citation rules. DOI: 10.2139/ssrn.2952510

TDS is not a real thing, it is only an insult Trump supporters use anytime someone disagrees with them.[edit]

"TDS" is an insult used by Donald Trump supporters and it should not be dignified as being a real thing in an encyclopedia which purports to present itself as a real encyclopedia, it cheapens and demeans Wiki and I for one was dismayed to see it here pretending to be a real thing. Someone I spoke with here today said that this article did not say that TDS was a medical condition, it doesn't have to, "syndrome" is a medical condition without qualification: It is a medical term and obviously there is no syndrome called Trump Derangement Syndrome in any DSM I have ever read, and Krauthammer was not a practicing psychiatrist anyway and any MD who diagnoses anyone with anything would have to make that diagnosis in person even if it were a real psychiatric condition which it is not. "A syndrome is a set of medical signs and symptoms that are correlated with each other and, often, with a particular disease or disorder.[1] The word derives from the Greek σύνδρομον, meaning "concurrence".[2]

I would like to open this up for deletion. Bobyoung53 (talk) 01:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

@Bobyoung53: If you'd like this article deleted, the appropriate process is explained at WP:AFD. Given the extensive coverage of the topic in reliable sources, though, there is little chance of success. — JFG talk 05:51, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Trump Derangement Syndrome - Type A vs. Trump Derangement Syndrome - Type B[edit]

I first noticed Trump Derangement Syndrome a couple of years ago. I noticed it on TV and in social media and it was a bizarre phenomenon. People were crazily against Donald Trump and it was consuming them. People that I had admired were constantly tweeting weird and sometimes hateful things about the president to a point that I forgot why I had liked them in the first place. In a word they were “triggered”.

In recent days I have come to realize that there are actually two Trump Derangement syndromes, so I have labeled them Type A and Type B. Type A is the one that this article refers to. Type B is essentially the opposite. I have encountered pathological Trump supporters that regurgitate tired arguments, ignore facts, cling to irrelevant details and seemingly support Trump no matter what he does at any cost for specious and bizarre reasons.

I would like to create a separate article for Trump Derangement Syndrome - Type B and I would like to call Trump Derangement Syndrome in this article Type A. Is that ok? Do you have any thoughts or ideas? Any input will be appreciated. Thanks. Jasonagastrich (talk) 22:22, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

My impression is that if reliable sources support the concept of the two (and ideally one treating of the two to prevent synthesis), it may be best to describe them both in this article to avoid creating a WP:POVFORK risking deletion. —PaleoNeonate – 00:44, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I took your advice and added TDS-B to the existing article. Good idea. Take care. Jasonagastrich (talk) 03:36, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
@Jasonagastrich: It seems you did not fully take PaleoNeonate's advice. In order to add "TDS-B", you need to back it up with reliable sources. You only cited Urban Dictionary, which is not a RS (the encyclopedia cannot rely on user-generated content); moreover this source does not even call the phenomenon "TDS-B", so that the naming is original research. There might be sources out there that make your case, and you'll have to find them or keep this out. — JFG talk 05:49, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
To me ignorance is not bliss. Jasonagastrich (talk) 17:17, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
Even if you find sufficient sourcing for the existence of a "type B", you can't give it a name yourself. I don't think this is going to work. Prinsgezinde (talk) 16:12, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
