Loyalty Day 2017 and Trump Derangement Syndrome

President Trump proclaimed today as Loyalty Day and the port side of our politics went crazy on twitter, the above photo allegedly from the Ivanka Trump Loyalty Day Collection being one sample.  Go here to read all about it.  The problem is that May 1 has been Loyalty Day by Federal law starting in 1955 and all Presidents since, including Obama, have proclaimed it to be such.  Go here to read my post on Loyalty Day in 2014.  Trump Derangement Syndrome is not merely a political brickbat, but it is a real phenomenon, and it would be pointed out as such if so many of the chattering classes in reporting, the professions, academia and entertainment were not deeply in the throes of it.
