Election 2020

New York Times Columnist Reveals She’s Had ‘Insomnia’ Ever Since the ‘Cursed Night’ of Trump’s Election

Same person also claimed democracy was in danger and said the president is 'a professional racist'

Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for The New York Times, claimed on Friday that she’s had years of insomnia ever since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

Maybe she meant to say she’s had a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome since the election — but I digress.

People like this have created their own PTSD, in my opinion.

This is what happens when they keep promoting — every single day — that the sky is falling.

I didn’t know how serious this could get. And I’m sure Trump will resign when he hears about the insomnia this lady is suffering because of him.

The “tidbit” about Goldberg’s insomnia “came in a column [she wrote] about Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg making what she calls a ‘thrilling prediction’ that the 2020 election will see a ‘blue wave’ that will ‘crash and shatter the Republican Party,'” as a Fox News piece pointed out.

“His confidence will not be enough to lessen the insomnia that has plagued me since the cursed night when Trump was elected,” Goldberg wrote.

Goldberg had previously claimed democracy was in danger, Fox pointed out — and she wrote that “Trump has treated his oath of office the way he’s rumored to have treated a Moscow hotel bed.”

She also called the president a “professional racist” and decried the “moral and psychic cost [of] participating in the fiction that people who work for Trump are in any sense public servants.”

And yet — here we are.

Under this president, we have a very healthy economy; very low unemployment, especially for minorities and women; wages on the rise; the largest work force and best participation rates for years; and finally someone in the Oval Office with the courage to confront China after that country for many years was able to steal from us and send us junk products.

I can’t wrap my head around the fact that Trump’s election still devastates some Democrats. Don’t they have a life?

This is what happens to people who put a political party ahead of America. Most Americans don’t care much about political parties, as I see it.

Most Americans care about America.

If Democrats believed in freedom and liberty, they would not have to deceive, slander, harass, assault, revise, race-bait, gender-bait, class-bait, or import foreign voters to get their candidates elected.

Please, someone, get this lady a comfort goat and a participation trophy.
