It’s one thing to dislike Donald Trump. But if your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so acute that you can’t even acknowledge and celebrate the significance of North Korea releasing three American hostages, you’re officially sick in the head.
That’s certainly our diagnosis for “Ellen” producer Andy Lassner, who marked the prisoners’ release with this:
Good news: You’ve been released from North Korea
Bad news: Donald Trump will be at the airport when you arrive home

FFS, dude. You seriously can’t turn it off for one damn minute?
Book them on your stupid show and see if they believe that.

Pretty sure if I had just been released from a North Korean prison I would be pretty grateful to the people that worked to get me released…but that’s just me.

Why are people so angry that Trump got those people released from North Korea,. Even if you hate him you'd have to give him credit and thanks , we're all Americans

Jesus, held in a NK labor camp. What a completely stupid and vile tweet. One asked to get off the plane because he hadn’t seen daylight in literally years! What is wrong with you?!

Otto’s parents will really appreciate your wit.

Good News: You're out of North Korean prison camps
Better News: You didn't end up like Otto while Obama was at the airport https://t.co/GeOrISp707

Hatred for Trump diminishes being freed from a prison system consisting of death camps. That's comedy, not the irrational and delusional rantings of a true believer.

Typical left….these American captives were just starved and beaten….seeing the president and being on American soil must be worse..

Tfw when you’re so deep into your fantasy of resisting a fascist takeover of America that you don’t realize that someone liberated from *3 years in a North Korean gulag without seeing the sun* doesn’t care which American President freed him. https://t.co/u5OqCoOgqK
