They get paid for what they do. Did she?

There was a man (also Florida...neither helping the stereotype) who committed suicide when Obama won reelection. By your logic, that means Obama Derangement Syndrome is real, right?

...or, rather, does it mean that mentally ill people sadly do irrational things like these instances and they sometimes happen to center around politicians?

Hmmm....

Seriously, the msm needs to tone back the hate.
The Democrats have taken in and catered to the insane, just for a vote. Consequences of closing the Asylums. Yes, they vote.

It's sad that people are using this woman who obviously has mental issues to make political points for their chosen leader. The woman did not just suddenly wake up one day and decide to harm herself because Trump was president. From the article --
Quote:
The report states that the woman said she “has been Baker Acted before and has attempted to hurt herself in the past.”
This woman needs help, npt ridicule from Trump-lovers.

Feb. 2017 - Are Liberals Helping Trump?

Every time Mr. Medford dips into the political debate — either with strangers on Facebook or friends in New York and Los Angeles — he comes away feeling battered by contempt and an attitude of moral superiority.

“We’re backed into a corner,” said Mr. Medford, 46, whose business teaches people to be filmmakers. “There are at least some things about Trump I find to be defensible. But they are saying: ‘Agree with us 100 percent or you are morally bankrupt. You’re an idiot if you support any part of Trump.’ ”

...
Mrs. O’Connell is a registered Democrat. She voted for Bill Clinton twice. But she has drifted away from the party over what she said was a move from its middle-class economic roots toward identity politics. She remembers Mr. Clinton giving a speech about the dangers of illegal immigration. Mr. Trump was lambasted for offering some of the same ideas, she said.

“The Democratic Party has changed so much that I don’t even recognize it anymore,” she said. “These people are destroying our democracy. They are scarier to me than these Islamic terrorists. I feel absolutely disgusted with them and their antics. It strengthens people’s resolve in wanting to support President Trump. It really does.”
yep. nice article btw.

Just imagine how crazy things will get a few months out from the election and then after the election. Unfortunately there will be a lot of violence.

I agree mental hospitals should be as prevalent now as they were 50 years ago, before libs forced America to let loony tunes like this woman out.

I read about it and figured one of you right wing nuts would post about it.

We all know this woman has other issues that is going with her than Crooked Trump.

Regardless, you did good. Take a bow.

That would look just as crazy to "the left" as stabbing one's self over Trump looks to "the right". Who's really to say who is more crazy? Or even if it's crazy at all to do so.
Ridiculous comparison. Someone doesn't want to live under Communist rule is not even in the same universe as someone pissy that their lies didn't work and Trump still won.

If the 2nd were ever to be repealed, gun owners would not be shooting themselves.
