You never know when Trump Derangement Syndrome is going to strike. Common signs are an abnormal level of hating and losing, increased exposure to MSNBC, as well as irrational anger toward red hats. Usually, it’s just the MAGA hat (see Store Employee Fired After Saying ‘F**k You’ to Child Customer in MAGA Hat and Women’s Marcher Melts Down Over MAGA Hats, Claims Emotions Outweigh Facts). Though in some terminal cases of TDS, really, any red hat will cause fits of rage. As this retired NYPD officer apparently found out.
In @realDonaldTrump derangement syndrome news:
Meet my pal Danny. He’s a retired #NYPD, & a pillar of our community
Goes to #Nashville to celebrate his 50th. Wears a “Make Fifty Great Again” Hat
A woman punches him (she thinks it’s a MAGA hat) & flees the scene

Point of information. Joe Borelli is a NYC Councilman from the rugged lands of Shaolin. So this isn’t just some rando making an unverified claim on Twitter. It’s just who the left is in 2020. You’re out celebrating half a century of life. Day drinking at Tootsie’s. Listening to a cover band play the same Kenny Chesney song you’ve heard for the third time that day, after hearing the same Eric Church song you’ve heard for the third time that day. With “Redneck Woman” before that. That’s when some illiterate harpie runs up and sucker punches you because she can’t read. I mean, at least when I was in Nashville last year, “Make [AGE] Great Again” hats were pretty common. Almost as common as bachelorette parties. It takes all of ten seconds to read a five-letter word and think about your actions. Sadly, TDS affects one’s ability to engage that which sits between the ears.
Considering people affected by TDS are trying to run people over with their cars as of late, it’s a blessing Danny got off with just a scratch and a funny birthday story to tell. Not that being attacked is funny. But knowing what I know from people who are on the job or retired from it, my man most likely laughed this off and went back to celebrating.
