‘Trump trauma’ on the way out? Political anxiety appears to be fading, says psychiatric survey

May 24, 2017

During the 2016 presidential election, there was much talk in the press about “pre-election stress disorder,” “post-election stress disorder,” “collective stress,” “election anxiety,” “Trump trauma” and other conditions found among Americans who were dithering over the election itself, and the unexpected victory of President Trump.

Therapists offered advice. Democrats ramped up angry rhetoric. Safe spaces were all the rage. So what’s the prognosis these days — over 17 weeks into Mr. Trump’s presidency?

None other than the American Psychiatric Association has polled the nation on the subject of toxic politics. Here’s what they found:

“Americans are split on whether they are anxious about the impact of politics on their lives (51 percent are, 49 percent are not),” reports the organization. “However, relatively few, 16 percent, say they are extremely anxious and that number is fairly consistent among all age groups, income levels, and among Caucasians, blacks and Hispanics.

    Most of us knew this thing – the continued “I hate Trump for no real reason” effort (most call it the “resistance movement”) – wouldn’t last too long (although it has lasted a little longer than most of us expected, eh?).. It just isn’t inside most folks to “hate” for too long (so long)… With the exception of the hard-liner radicals and a bunch of “minds full of mush” college students and little leftist brown shirts, and clueless democrats, most have come to actually accept the election of President Trump.. Now all we really need to do is to quickly arrest those who continue to make a call to riot and to immediately prepare ourselves to quickly put the seditionists/traitors into jail as soon as possible.. They’ll be easy to identify… They’re the ones still shouting

    To: Ironmike4610 It is not the republicans are all good and democrats all bad it is the politicians of both parties are about 99% bad. Those labels don’t mean anything. If you were trying to sale yourself wouldn’t you tell how good you are?

  • rightsright says:

    The Democrats would be long gone if people really knew what they represent. Truthfully the party has been taken over and Obama’s administration is Communist and all about ONE WORLD ORDER. This is what all of the division was about to weaken us and make it easier to destroy our country. Obama’s whole purpose was about just exactly what we saw, destroy the economy, divide us with racism, bankrupt America, give secrets, arms and money to our enemies, allow ISIS to flourish and spread throughout the world, overwhelm our country with illegal immigration. Yes, he and Iranian born Communist, Valerie Jarrett(real President) with Obama as the front man distracting everyone while the destruction was taking place, followed their plan exactly as they were instructed! Trump threw a damper into the mix and now the elitist’s have been exposed and they don’t quite know how to handle the COMPLETE REVERSAL TRUMP HAS INITIATED.

    the only thing this election proved is how corrupt our government really is, and it’s both sides,they can’t do anything that is good for the country anymore , it’s all about their agenda

    Cry babies. Wacko’s at best. Grow up you weaklings. The liberal college Professors have made our youth limp wristy. Same has happened in Japan. Let me shake you and say GET HOLD OF YOURSELF

    We wouldn’t need psychiatrists if the Democratic party would just disappear.

  • tryscavage says:

    The ‘American Psychiatric Association’? The ‘American Psychiatric Association’? I went to Medical School and the students who eventually went on to Psychiatry would wear a Bozo the Clown mask driving their car every day back and forth from the Medical School or always carry a loaded pistol in their black bag. I wouldn’t get too upset or not upset by any of their studies. However, ALWAYS read them since they are able to sit there and listen to patients’ psychoses and not break out laughing.

  • Quarks says:

    Hilarious, the “American Psychiatric Association”, populated by a group of left-wing-liberal-morons, that have prospered financially for decades in causing the deaths, by suicide, of thousands of their patients after a few visits.

  • Bob S says:

    The snowflakes need to learn that the best way to insulate yourself from the ebb and flow of politics is to be self-sufficient. Unfortunately, the liberal mindset is one of inter-dependence so hysteria thrives whenever their freebies are threatened.

    1. William Holk says:

      Then the Democrats keep doling it out to get their votes so they can keep their own gravy train.

      1. Bob S says:

        And those elected officials then proclaim the end of the world so the constituents will vote to keep/put them in office. It’s happening now with Trump’s tax plan. The dems are in a panic because the new plan is concerned for the first time with both the recipient of AND the payer of the taxes.

  • Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

    the mania posed by trump-phobia, is not self correcting. but insanely seethes beneath the surface, waiting to boil over again with any excuse. in this world, of insane conglomerate oppositions. not for the good of this world or our country, but for the good of our diverse selfish occult churches.

    I would like to see the Demoncratic party on it’s way out. Totally OUT!

    1. Retired says:

      They are out of it alright , most should be on a shrinks couch and take some of the republicans with .

      1. Larry says:

        Yes indeed! I’d rather see them in psychiatric wards versus a shrinks couch, it would take up the shrinks entire brain to absorb all of their deranged minds.

        1. Retired says:

          Most wards were closed decades ago because Insurance does not want to pay for mental health .

          1. Larry says:

            True! I was thinking along the lines of a distant Island so they could fend for themselves and insurance or caregivers wouldn’t be affected! LOL

          2. Retired says:

            Anything to get them pout of the Country works .

    2. William Holk says:

      That would sure help our country!

    This BS from the American Psychiatric Association.

    1. Retired says:

      Just another Useless Stupid article .

    2. dmttbt says:

      The other politicians will stop at nothing to get Trump out. He is really there to save them as much as anyone else because they have stolen so much from the tax payers there is nothing left to take.

      1. Larry says:

        You are correct, because the ones trying to get him out are all crooks stealing from the American People. The “People” that want him out are afraid they will have to finally work for a living, versus living off those that do work. SICKENING BUNCH OF HATEFUL, UNGRATEFUL UNAMERICAN FOLKS!
