We’re so old we remember hearing reports of Post-Election/Selection Trauma (PEST) when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore way back when, so it’s not as if Washington Post opinion writer Dana Milbank was onto something new last week when he unveiled THUD, or Trump Hypertensive Unexplained Disorder, in a piece headlined, “President Trump is killing me. Really.”
I think I am not the only one newly diagnosed with Trump Hypertensive Unexplained Disorder. https://t.co/A92cS6PAhH

Milbank writes that his editor, too, “has been newly warned by his doctor that his blood pressure has become borderline.” Milbank also reports feelings of “fatigue, headaches, poor sleep, even some occasional chest pain” — none of which can be explained other than by a case of THUD. It’s a joke, kind of — the kind that’s not funny.
Speaking of fatigue … this whole act is getting really tiresome.
Wow! 1st person in the history of the world with high blood pressure. Must be Trump.

Do any Liberals even remotely understand what is was like for Conservatives under Obama? Any? At all? https://t.co/ujTJlTKLbr

Hell no they don't… everything was rainbows and unicorn farts while Obama was President!

That was totally different because shut up. Also, Conservatives are not really human & hate is their only emotion. Also, shut up.

Being sincere: if you're letting Trump affect your health, it's lack of ability to handle stress. Dont rely on meds, work on mental strength https://t.co/IW7yGfy7jP
