Obsession is more than a word; it’s a lifestyle.
And for left-wing Americans suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, their obsessive-compulsive lifestyles revolve around the man they hate most, President Donald Trump.
Case in point: On Wednesday the Dixie Chicks dropped their first new music video since their days trashing then-President George W. Bush in 2006, and since the video/song’s name is “Gaslighter,” TDS sufferers immediately assumed it was about the president.
.@dixiechicks are back, feisty and unapologetic, which may be a sign of changing political times. They were blasted for trashing #Bush2 and all but vanished. Now even W. fears #Trump and it’s becoming a more diverse, woke world, even in #Nashville. https://t.co/O08T3Sh3d8

the most basic white bitch opinion I have at the moment is that I would have really loved to see the Dixie Chicks to do GASLIGHTER at a Liz Warren rally with photos of Trump in the background ??♀️

“Dixie Chicks” release “Gaslighter”—their first new music in 14 years.
You may not be old enough to remember the group tangled with WBush over the Iraq War and were compared to “Saddam Hussein.”

According to Rolling Stone magazine, the song’s a “thinly-veiled autobiographical sing-along” that’s “one part righteous indignation and one part post-mid-life crisis emancipation.”
More specifically, it’s about Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines’ ex-husband, Adrian Pasdar, according to The Blast magazine.
“In the song, Maines sings about a person gaslighting her in a relationship. The lyrics include the line, ‘Gaslight, big timer. Repeating all of the mistakes of your father,'” the outlet reported.
“The song turned personal when Maines sang ‘We moved to California and followed your dreams. I believed the promises you made to me. Swore that night ‘till death do us part. But you lie-lie-lie-lie-lied Hollywood welcomed you with open doors. No matter what they gave you, you still wanted more.'”
Watch the video below:
Maines also sings about giving somebody money.
“You thought I wouldn’t see it if you put it in my face,” she sings. “Give you all my money, you gladly walk away. You think it’s justifiable.”
“I think it’s pretty cruel and you know you lie best when you lie to you ‘cause boy, you know exactly what you did on my boat and boy that’s exactly why you ain’t coming home. Save your tired stories for your new someone else because they’re lie lie lie lie lies.”
It just so happens that when she and Pasdar divorced last year, he demanded she pay him $16,427/month in child support and $44,076 in spousal support.
“At one point, the ‘Heroes’ star claimed poverty to the court asking that Maines to be forced to pay him $60,000 a month in support. … During the 2-year battle, Pasdar claimed Maines is extremely wealthy marking around $2 Million a year performing music. He also said she has a net worth of $50 million and property worth $4.5 million,” The Blast reported at the time.
Such facts strongly point to “Gaslighter” not being about the president. Yet according to TDS sufferers, it’s the president’s supporters who are the “non-thinking” ones.
That said, conservatives don’t appear too keen on the Dixie Chicks’ “comeback,” partly because of their ruthless attacks on former President Bush:
Are the chicks back? Natalie destroyed their careers by telling their French audience that they were ashamed 2B from the same state as President Bush. Nashville ran them out of town and they ceased to exist. Believe this: they will not resurrect their defunct careers this way.

Remember when the singer said she was ashamed that Bush was from Texas? Total nosedive for the Dixie Chicks…
Guess they had to sell their souls again for a “comeback”.

Dixie Chicks mock President Bush while overseas. Nation turns their back on them in disgust. Naturally, 2020 Democrats make them heroes.

Maybe this time Natalie won’t get political and say anything derogatory about president trump? Let’s hope for her sake. We didn’t forget about President Bush. Consider this a 2nd chance don’t blow it.
