Yep, the opposition has become unhinged.
This week, following the meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, we have seen Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display. Why? Because President Donald Trump didn’t pledge complete and total allegiance to the American intelligence community (that has been known to get things wrong from time to time).
When it comes to that sort of thing, a little goes a long way. Unfortunately, we are now seeing the claims of “treason” and more pleas to let Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller at the president increase to the point that Senator Bernie Sanders, confirmed socialist and nut job, is calling for a resolution from the Senate floor.
Sanders asked for unanimous consent to try to pass his resolution, saying senators “must act” if they are “serious about preserving American democracy.”
“The Congress must make it clear that we accept the assessment of our intelligence community with regard to Russian election interfering in our country and in other democracies,” Sanders said during a Senate floor speech.
Under Senate rules, any one senator could block his request.
Sanders’s resolution would also demand already passed sanctions legislation be fully implemented, move to protect the election system and “not accept” interference in Mueller’s investigation, including the firing of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Leaving aside for the hundredth time that the United States is a republic, not a democracy, Bernie Sanders is quickly becoming one of the faces that are unglued. Senator Rand Paul, on the other hand, is not, and he was the single senator to put a stop to the lunatic resolution.
Sen. @RandPaul: "Trump derangement syndrome has officially come to the Senate. The hatred for the President is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance."

Paul questioned why senators would not want to have relations with Russia.
“We should stand firm and say ‘Stay the hell out of our elections,’ but we should not stick our head in the ground and say we’re not going to talk to them,” he said.
What do you know, Common sense in Washington.
Trump derangement syndrome has entered the upper chamber. Rand and Mitch McConnell may need to call an exorcist.
