If nothing else social media has been quite helpful in outing Trump Derangement Syndrome across the fruited plain.
The latest case of the highly infectious disease was reported in Nolan County, Texas at the local museum.
Television station KTAB reports the director of the Pioneer City County Museum posted a threatening message against Republicans on her Facebook page.
“I hope every single one of you pieces of s**t that votes republican, dies today,” Melonnie Hicks allegedly wrote.

The television station said she posted an apology after a screenshot of the post went viral, but that message has since been deleted. And the museum’s board of directors called an emergency meeting to discuss the matter.
Sweetwater City Manager David Vela told the television station he believes Hicks’ post is regrettable and reprehensible, especially for someone who has a prominent position. And it turns out a lot of folks around town feel the same way.
“Basically she’s okay with genocide of people that don’t align with her political beliefs,” one critic wrote. “Typical liberal.”
“Ms. Hicks, may the love and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ wash over you. And may you lose your job,” wrote another.
But not everyone around town believes the museum manager should lose her job.
“Not that I agree with her, but it’s her personal social media,” one observer wrote on Facebook. “The Constitution guarantees us freedom of speech. It should not affect her job, she’s welcome to have an opinion on anything she chooses.”
“Thank God someone wearing a MAGA didn’t say this about Democrats,” another person chimed in.
That’s a fair point. If Trump supporters had wished death on Bernie Sanders or Barack Obama voters they would have been brought up on hate crime charges.
Honestly, we should be more worried about Trump Derangement Syndrome than the Coronavirus.
