Pure TDS: NY Times Writer Can No Longer Watch The Bachelor

I’d ask if we’ve reached Peak Trump Derangement Syndrome, however, we all know that it is not even close. Liberals have plenty of room to grow their TDS. It does provide this bit of moonbattery

Poor Jennifer Weiner. One has to wonder why it was OK to treat women as pieces of meat to be chosen during a misogynistic competition while Obama was president

Breaking Up With ‘The Bachelor’

I’ve spent a lot of time since Nov. 8 wondering how Donald J. Trump happened, and whether any part of his vindictive, chaotic and xenophobic presidency might, in some small way, be my fault.

I didn’t vote for him. I didn’t contribute to his campaign. I didn’t attend his rallies or secretly wear a “Make America Great Again” hat.

However, I did do one thing, consistently, even obsessively, for the past decade and a half that I think might have played a part in where we find ourselves today.

I watched — and live-tweeted — “The Bachelor.” (snip)

But I submit that “The Bachelor” did the Republicans’ work for them, helping to prime America for its current leader.

It showed us how men treat, and talk about, women, and one another. It demonstrated that you don’t have to be the best, the kindest, the smartest or the most virtuous to stay in the competition. You just have to be the most interesting, and the producers will keep you around. It helped lull us into a false sense of security, that we could treat an election like a show; that everything on TV is entertainment and everyone on my screen is there to amuse.

OK, so what was fine during the Obama years is no longer fine with Trump in the White House. Even though Jennifer knew it was sexist. Jennifer then spends many paragraphs whining about the sexism of The Bachelor and comparing it to Trump, moving to

On Election Day, I stood in the voting booth with my daughters. I had no doubt about which lever I’d pull, and no doubt about who’d emerge as the victor. Most of me was happy. A tiny part was regretful. A Hillary Clinton presidency would be historic, but, Lord, a Trump presidency would be insanely fun to watch.

You mean the woman who has deep ties to Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations, taking lots of money from them, while ignoring the barbaric ways in which women, and gays, are treated.

I’m doing my part to make amends. This year, I’ve broken up with “The Bachelor.” I miss it, but in a post-Trump world, it doesn’t feel entertaining. Or maybe it’s that I don’t think I can allow myself the luxury of escape, not after six weeks of seeing what happens when a made-for-TV candidate stops being polite and starts being real.

Good news: we have at least four more years of this type of insanity to look forward to.

    As a culture we’re teetering on the edge of not being able to distinguish actual life-and-death reality from reality TV. Before you know it we’ll elect a TV gameshow celebrity for president of these United States.

    Jennifer, any relationship to Anthony aka Carlos Danger?

    Bag of dicks congress”man” Steve King claimed that so-called president trumpy’s telephone call to Australian PM was wiretapped by President Obama.

    Can cons distinguish between reality and fantasy?

    President Hannity stated that trumpy should “purge the saboteurs” from the US gov’t. The next day Hannity’s bitch trumpy started “the purge”. So-called president trumpy believes that God speaks to him directly through the electric talking picture box.

    I love to watch the progression as President Donald Trump slowly makes Jeffery’s sick brain into shit. Watching all these leftists continue to do the very things that got President Donald Trump elected and never having the consciousness to catch on is hilarious. Like children in a perpetual state of outrage. Dumbasses!

    I said it before, someday on the 11 o’clock news I fully expect to see the cops loading a guy identified only as “Jeffery from St. Louis” wearing just a suit made of human skin into a squad car.

      What got trump elected were thousands of frightened white folks in a few states energized by trump’s hatred for Mexicans, Muslims, gays, the free press, that foreigner Obama, Secretary Clinton and trumpy’s allegiance to Putin and the Kremlin. And trump promised to make America the land of milk of honey – where uneducated white men could make a decent living and be supreme once again.

      trump lied to everyone and now millions will lose their healthcare insurance – me and other millionaires will pay less in taxes – and polluters, Wall Street and the trump clan will make billions.

    Before you know it we’ll elect a community organizer for president that knows absolutely nothing about foreign policy, economics, health care, etc. Oh wait-we already did.
