MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes has a mean case of Trump derangement syndrome. It is so bad that he thinks that President Donald Trump is going to bomb someone tonight just to get the public’s attention off of the first Democratic presidential debate.
I swear I have a fear he launches some kind of military strike *during one of the debates*

The response was given to podcast host and documentary producer Jody Avirgan’s baseless assertion that Trump was going to do something crazy to stop the Democratic message from being disseminated.
“Seen takes that candidates in the first debate are at a disadvantage because they only get one news cycle before the next night,” Avirgan wrote about the debate schedule which includes two straight nights of unhinged Democratic action.
“Some quaint assumptions here that: 1) a news cycle lasts more than a day 2) Trump won’t do something Friday to get everyone to pay attention to him,” he added.
Avirgan noted that he had the same thought as Hayes about Trump dropping bombs to take the limelight off of Democrats, but he had the good sense not to put it in writing until Hayes brought it up.
The fears may come as a result of Hayes being triggered by tough talk from President Trump about Iran, which has resulted in a war of words with the leadership of the Islamic Republic.
“Iran leadership doesn’t understand the words ‘nice’ or ‘compassion,’ they never have,” Trump tweeted. “Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone.”
“Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality,” Trump added. “Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!”
The uber beta Hayes is quivering as the result of Trump’s strength. This isn’t the only time he has embarrassed himself on Twitter due to his severe case of Trump derangement syndrome.
The President is actively and willfully endangering the life of a member of Congress.

I'd love to hear from Russia story skeptics what evidence would change their mind. I've been skeptical of collusion, but I mean…

Or, an even less charitable interpretation: they didn't get it wrong at all. They didn't want full employment, they didn't want wage growth and empowered workers and they certainly didn't want that happening under a Democratic president.

Considering that Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for wacky policies like gay reparations and the Green New Deal, Trump would not be wise to distract attention from the debates tonight and tomorrow night. His poll numbers may go up even further if the ratings soar.
