Most people have seen the news over the weekend:
J.K. Rowling falsely accuses Donald Trump of avoiding shaking the hand of a wheelchair-bound three-year-old boy as Piers Morgan labels the author as a ‘disgraceful liar’
Even though she’s been told in no uncertain fashion, even though she deliberately cut off the opening of the clip* where he goes straight to the boy, thereby lying outright and misrepresenting, she still has the tweet up on Twitter.
She is clearly totally unaware of libel laws.
But it’s more than this – it’s Trump Derangement Syndrome. Originally a term of amusement for the way left-liberals cannot handle Trump being elected, it has come to mean clinical insanity.
In short, she can plead diminished responsibility because she fervently believes Trump did not go to the boy. In her head, it never happened.
Just as certain afflictions affect some demographics more, so with TDS – it affects left liberal women in particular, Gen X and younger, plus it affects the new pussified males.
My advice? Don’t make fun of the afflicted.
* I shall modify the ‘deliberately cut off the opening of the clip’ [in the sense that she did the snipping of the tape herself] to ‘she used a deliberately cut off clip [in the sense that she saw a doctored clip, mouthed off and then refused to retract once it was made abundantly clear she had used a doctored clip], then persisted in keeping her eight tweets up in her Twitter a/c’.
Please contrast her approach to my modification of this post in situ in response to further information.
