NYT Columnist Says She’s Suffered Insomnia Since Trump’s Election

In a rare admission, a New York Times liberal named Michelle Goldberg acknowledged in a new column that she’s suffering from an all-too-common malady: Trump Derangement Syndrome. Okay, Goldberg does not, of course, actually put it in those terms, but if you admit in a national newspaper that you’ve suffered a decline in your personal health attributed specifically to the election of a Republican president, what else can anyone conclude? That’s exactly what Goldberg did in her review of Stanley Greenberg’s new book, where the pollster predicts that a blue wave will knock Trump out of the White House in 2020.

“Toward the end of his new book, ‘R.I.P. G.O.P.,’ the renowned Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg makes a thrilling prediction, delivered with the certainty of prophecy,” Goldberg tells her readers. “It sounds almost messianic: the Republican Party, that foul agglomeration of bigotry and avarice that has turned American politics into a dystopian farce, not just defeated but destroyed.”

But Goldberg warned her audience not to get too confident.

“This is not the first time that experts have predicted the inevitable triumph of progressive politics. Seventeen years ago, John Judis and Ruy Teixeira published ‘The Emerging Democratic Majority,’ which argued that the country was on the cusp of a liberal political realignment driven by growing diversity, urbanization and gender equality,” she writes.

That realignment didn’t happen, of course, but Goldberg is hopeful that THIS time, all her dreams of GOP death will come true.

Alas: “His confidence will not be enough to lessen the insomnia that has plagued me since the cursed night when Trump was elected. But his book should be a corrective to the media’s overweening focus on the mulish devotion of Trump voters. Trump hatred is a much more potent force in this country than Trump love.”

When people come to these advanced stages of TDS, it’s almost impossible to do anything other than pity them. It’s hard to imagine that we would even lose a wink of sleep if Bernie Sanders were to be elected, and that would spell almost certain doom for the economy. But it’s like, what are you going to do? Anything? No, almost certainly not. And whomever the president is and however disturbing their ideas might be, Washington politics are never going to override our God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s actually sad that anyone would let them.

But, when it comes to liberals like Goldberg who put all their faith in the government, it’s hardly surprising.

  1. Michelle Goldberg should get a grip on life. Poor….. Poor little snowflake. I guess she thinks everyone should feel sorry for. I just ” Pity the Fool”. .

  2. If I cared about the now defunct NYT, as relates to it printing all the news that’s fit to print, I might have insomnia too. But I don’t care, so I don’t have insomnia. But also let there be no doubt, I also definitely don’t care about the childish reported in the article.

  3. I think it is terrific. Like all these lousy dems and the “Fake News” media, I hope she continues to suffer when President Trump is re-elected next year.

    • Wouldn’t mind if she was put in a special place…hospital psychiatric ward would be Perfect! These people apparently have needed some form of psychiatric care going back some time.
      Do these dumb-nuts not KNOW how elections are run….ONE winner ONE loser! Been that way for many years. If these people are seriously THAT deranged…surprised that they can hold a job…feed themselves…or function in any capacity! Not joking…it’s a f’ing election! Just like baseball, football, tennis, etc…ONE winner ONE loser. Get on with YOUR friggen life…period! We are NOT Communist’s…yet anyway😡😖👹 Thank GOD for that every night🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  4. Poor Michelle,
    you are sleep deprived ? Looks good on you. Anyone as screwed up as you are should not get any sleep at all. I have the answer to your problem, let all the illegals stay and deport all the Democrats. Maybe then you will get some sleep.

  5. Michelle you are a one-dimensional journalistic moron. You will suffer another four years, TDS, because you richly deserve so and because President Donald Trump has performed admirably and well amidst a torrent of treason, attacks on himself and his family and friends unlike any other President in American history and a self-serving, far left, socialist Democratic party that has embraced cowardice, lying and treason. President Trump gives better than he gets in the give-and-take of politics. You would do well to learn what Americans want from their government and listen to what they have to say rather than opinionating and lying to them.

    • Exactly what I was going to say! A few years in a Psychiatric facility should be a requirement when she admits to everyone what a total whacko she is. A Psycho belongs in a controlled environment! Apparently this broad is not aware HOW our election system works…always ONE winner and ONE looser👍👍👍👍so get over your dang fool self and act like an adult…IF that’s possible! 🤪🤪🤪🤪

  6. To Michelle Goldberg: I am sure that your employer provides you with a health insurance plan. May I suggest you review your coverage, pick up your phone, and schedule an appointment with a mental health professional. There is no reason why a woman has to be so fragile and suffer in the USA today, over an issue like this. Today is 9/11. I know how you libs feel that all people should imagine themselves to be in the skin of others. How about you try putting yourself in the skin of people who lost loved ones 18 years ago today, and try to imagine how many sleepless nights they have had, and compare their reason and yours. You are pretty weak, aren’t you. What I find amazing is that the NY Times actually paid you for writing this crap. Suggestion #2 – may I also recommend that you start researching how to relocate to another country, because I cannot imagine how you will react to Donald Trump’s re-election on 11/03/20. For your safety and others, I hope that NYC has never issued you one of those rarely given out gun permits. You are surely exhibiting symptoms of what could be a “red flag” disqualification. See how that works, Michelle.

  7. Wow! How melodramatic, I’m surprised at just how weak these Libs/Dems are, she certainly does need mental help, in the interim I would recommend melatonin for her sleep issue.

  8. Ask me if I care. If your that mentally deranged about Trump being elected President,
    then you have more problems than you can count on your fingers,
    And to think you are a reporter? Are you kidding me?
    You should be in a mental ward with crayons & coloring book.

  9. Who gives a crap about you and insomnia since the president was elected..hopefully it will drive you to suicide no sympathy for a lazy worthless woman like you

  10. She made a deal with the Devil when she took to spreading NY Times propaganda, and now she claims “Insomnia.” She may have been rauised right as a child, not to tell lies. Then she depreciated herself by doing the bidding of a propagandizing news rag.
    And now, her subconscious wants to forget the lies in which she participated for the NYT.
    Insomnia is the price paid. Straighten out, Missy, and you’ll recover!

  11. Michele, there is going to be another 4 more years of suffering this TDS (the Trump Derangement Syndrome) for Trump will win 2020 resoundingly. This means another 5 years of insomnia from today.

  12. Michele, enjoy the sleeplessness, better than the ulcers you’ll get and the shame you’ll suffer (retrospectively, if you have a conscience) when you realize how gullible you’ve been believing democrats…

  13. It’s probably her Conscience telling her “quit believing the LIES of the Democrats and EMBRACE the views of the CONSERVATIVE . . . The conservative is for EVERYONE having a GREAT opportunity in life! . . . not just a “privileged few”. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
