President Donald Trump’s campaign is offering camo hats in exchange for donations, urging potential donors to become a member of “Trump’s Army.”
And for that, the left is losing its ever-loving collective mind.
A campaign email reads: “You’ve been identified as one of President Trump’s fiercest and most loyal defenders, and according to your donor file, you’d make an excellent addition to the Trump Army.”
“The President wants YOU and every other member of our exclusive Trump Army to have to something to identify yourselves with, and to let everyone now that you are the President’s first line of defense when to come to fighting off the Liberal MOB,” the email added.
The comical thing about it is that the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd sees the email as a potential call to arms — then again, it’s been said before if President Trump found a cure for cancer, the resistance would find a reason to complain.
Characterizing the appeal for political contributions as “inflammatory,” Media Post’s Ray Schultz proclaimed: “It’s not clear whether the person is being called on to play a military or an organizational role.”
Naturally, there were the prerequisite comparisons to Adolf Hitler.
“BREAKING: Trump is now recruiting his own ‘army’ in order to fight the ‘liberal mob.’ This is EXACTLY how Hitler and the Nazis happened!!!” shrieked the wife of one of the unhinged Trump-hating Krassenstein brothers, who were “permanently” banned by Twitter for operating fake accounts.

A video showcasing an entitled liberal snowflake actually crying about Trump starting another Holocaust was shared online by conservative Mark Dice.
As he observed, the video is so over-the-top ridiculous, you’re almost certain that it’s a parody.
The only thing the emotional wreck of a woman said that had any truth to it was her opening remarks about not being “the voice people need to hear.”
Is this a parody? I can’t tell anymore. pic.twitter.com/megkBDDgW6

The reaction to the fundraising email captures just how unhinged the opposition to Trump is, yet these people consider themselves the voice of reason in politics today.
We live in a “bizarro world” where facts takes a backseat to emotion, where lies and distortions are propagated as truth to an entitled generation that enjoys a lifestyle of luxury their grandparents could not have fathomed — a generation that’s convinced it’s living a downtrodden live.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Come on, show some sympathy. They’re giving out camo hats for a donation. What did you expect?

She’s fake crying so I’m guessing she’s trolling people

Has to be parody, no one can really be this out of their mind. Can they?

We cant get our special hats anymore, cause her buddies burnt down all the post offices.

True. She doesn’t care enough! That’s so racist and xenophobic of her.

I’m convinced half of America has lost their minds.

OMG That is over the top. Who carries that much emotion & personalizes a fundraising letter? It was a form letter with canned rhetoric. That woman needs a psyche ward stat!

It’s a TDS trip.

Ho. Ly. Shit.
Please Lord, don’t let this one ever procreate!
