Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well on the left. During a recent campaign appearance, a leftist told Joe Biden that she believes Trump is an illegitimate president.
Biden, king of the gaffes that he is, then responded by saying he agrees.
Mediaite has details:
“I have a very severe case of what’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome,” the woman said by way of introduction, but added “I have a frustration also with the Democratic party, so this is more of a comment than maybe a question.”
She said that she would “like to see the party and every candidate come out with a very simple message” regarding Trump: “He won the election by 70,000 votes in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, he won it because he had help by the Russians, he refuses to do anything to stop that, he’s failing in carrying out the most basic function to uphold the Constitution, he is not defending our national security, he has no interest in doing it, I don’t want to live in a country run by Vladimir Putin, I don’t think anybody in the country should want that, I don’t understand why millions of people don’t get that message, and I think every candidate needs to pound that message home again and again and again.”
“He is an illegitimate president in my mind,” she added. “That’s it. I think all the talk about impeachment and what the Democrats should do, that’s fine, it’s theoretical at this point. Let them investigate, let them subpoena, let them go to the Supreme Court, he’s illegitimate. and my biggest fear is that he’s going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we’re going to be stuck for six more years of this guy. And that is terrifying. It’s terrifying.”
“Would you be my vice presidential candidate?” Biden asked with a laugh, then said “Folks, look, I absolutely agree.”

It’s just further proof that Trump’s win in 2016 caused some people to truly lose their minds.
Hot Air reminds us that this type of thinking is nothing new:
This is the second time in 10 days that a very high-ranking cabinet member in the Obama administration has questioned Trump’s right to hold the office that he holds.
Hillary Clinton did it last week. Previously James Clapper had suggested that Russia’s interference was decisive while acknowledging that he had no empirical reason to believe that, and of course John Brennan has accused Trump of outright treason.
What are these people going to do if Trump wins again in 2020?
It’ll be a national mental health emergency.
