Speaking of “bizarre”…
Looking to explain President Donald Trump‘s “bizarre mannerisms,” Steven Beutler, an infectious disease specialist, believes the president could be suffering from an untreated STD.
And the media can’t fathom why America rejects them.
In an essay published in The New Republic, Beutler suggested Trump exhibits signs of dementia, as seen in the “later stages of syphilis.”
Now that’s a “beut!”

But it’s not the ridiculousness of the assertion that stands out, after all, there’s a reason they call the liberal sickness “Trump DERANGEMENT Syndrome,” it’s the eagerness of Trump haters to jump on the asinine assertion.
Far left rags like Raw Story are chomping at the bit to run with such a salacious headline:

Of course, we know Adolph Hitler, who Trump is often compared to by the unhinged left, was also rumored to suffer from untreated syphilis. When it comes to Democrats, the ends justify the means.
The best way to sum up such tripe is that it is “an embarrassment.”
Probably the lowest form of journalism is baselessly proposing psychoanalytical or medical explanations for political behavior.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter that not only have fun with the claim, but also points out that this is not a new tactic in politics:
@mtracey remember when they denounced all the stories going after Clinton’s health. Utterly absurd & shameful, this.

@mtracey Sweet Jesus. Then again, there are people believe Hitler had syphilis, so this aligns with the Trump-is-Hitler narrative nicely.

@mtracey Jesus. And the media honestly still wonders why Trump, his admin, and many of us voters don’t take them seriously…

@mtracey idk how we can still consider this a form of journalism.. even at its worst it shouldn’t come to this.

@mtracey They test everything to see what sticks. Fake diagnosis worked against Goldwater so they keep that attack in their arsenal.

@mtracey What if it’s an alien tapeworm living inside of him, carefully parasitizing his brain so as to keep critical body functions alive?

.@mtracey Medicalization of dissent is an old habit of leftists. Worldview where behavior is always viewed as the result of external forces.
