Bill Maher’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is terminal. Which is sad, because Maher is always solid on free speech issues. But once TDS gets you, there is no cure (see Happy Valentine’s Day! Slate Says Donald Trump is Ruining Sex and Professor Shoots Himself to Protest Trump). Let this video stand as exhibit A. Lots of using the word “stealing” for things that weren’t stolen. But when he mentions ASMR that’s where it got weird.
ASMR is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It could also be called Awkwardly Silent Millennial Retards. Basically, when you can’t deal, you listen to a podcast where people whisper to you and tell you that everything is going to be alright. It’s the latest social media trend. Further proving that social media was a mistake. People into ASMR are probably the same people trying to make “plant-based meat” a thing. Really, either it’s meat or it’s something meat eats. Knock it off.
Back to Maher. He did what many lefties are doing these days: reality isn’t working out for them, so they turn their inability to cope into a virtue. The country isn’t the way they want it. So they’re forced to use coloring books, go to cuddle parties, listen to ASMR, and do whatever it takes to avoid saying… hey, maybe I’m wrong about something.
Because it’s never them. it’s always someone else who’s wrong.
But at least the meltdown is delicious.
