Is Trump the first president for whom two diseases have been named during his first term in office? We have the Trump Virus and we have Trump Derangement Syndrome, one symptom of the second being that the sufferer believes Trump to be responsible for the first.


Now that's putting prayer to good use. I just watched a piece about 3 doctors who died from the Trump virus. What a wasteful tragedy.
