Probably because left-wingers already have a decisive inclination toward mental illness (and irrational paranoia that the Christian Theocracy is out to get them), they don’t seem to be handling the prospect of a Donald Trump candidacy very well.
If there is an unofficial capital of psychotherapy, it’s New York’s Upper West Side, where it’s easier to find a therapist than a parking space.
Judith Schweiger Levy, a psychologist in the neighborhood, has noticed a recent uptick in Trump references among her patients, including a middle-aged businesswoman who blurted out this week that her sister is supporting the billionaire.
“She was so upset and worried that she could have a sister — someone so close to her — who would have zero problem with Trump,” Levy said. “Another patient — also a woman — all she could talk about was Trump and how he’s crazy and frightening.”
Ruminating on Trump’s effect, Levy said, “Part of the reason he makes people so anxious is that he has no anxiety himself. It’s frightening. I’m starting to feel anxious just talking about him.”
When Conservatives consider the prospect of a Hillary presidency, many will prepare for more repressive gun laws by buying guns and stocking up on ammunition before the State makes it harder. And we make plans to dig in with our families and friends and just ride out the next four years of corruption and batscat crazy radical leftism, just as we’ve ridden out the last eight.
We don’t go whining to psychotherapists.
I am also thinking of all the left-wingers vowing to leave the country is Trump is elected, a list that so far includes Al Sharpton, Raven Symone, Miley Cyrus, Cher, Jon Stewart, Rosie O’Donnell and a whole bunch of dotty leftists who say they will but really won’t when they find out their EBT cards don’t work in Canada. And why do they always swear they’re fleeing to Canada? Why not Mexico? Isn’t that kinda racist?
