The fringes of the looney left have tried to blame a lot of problems on President Donald Trump.
The Washington Post ran an editorial titled “Yes, you can blame President Trump for Hurricane Florence” back in September.
They claimed that while the president didn’t quite literally create the hurricane, readers could “connect the dots between catastrophic climate-amplified storms (like Florence) and human actions (like Donald).”

Talk about unhinged! And now they’re blaming something even more ridiculous on the president.
Liberals now claim that Trump is making them fat!
Is this a joke?
Nope – this is science. A new survey examined the habits of 2,500 Americans and found that some are stress-eating over Trump.

But rather than blaming themselves, their willpower, their lack of self-control or even just plain laziness — liberals are claiming the hurricane-causing president is practically forcing them to knock back all the leftover Halloween candy… and maybe hit the stores to stock up on discount remainders just for good measure.
The survey by YouGov finds Democrats are 50 percent more likely than Republicans to stress eat over politics.
And that’s not the only source of comfort they turn to.
They’re also reaching for the bottle, twice as likely to choose booze to soothe themselves.
At least one doctor said that sounds like some of her patients.
“I’m seeing some people so stressed at the moment they’re doing two, even three soul cycle classes at day,” Dr. Navya Mysore told NBC News. “Exercise is good for you, but too much is not. You [risk] dehydration and your body needs time to rest and rejuvenate.”
But Democrats can’t help it… and even the stars admit they’re stress-eating over Trump.
Left-wing icon Barbra Streisand told The New York Times she’s been eating away to cope.

“I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country,” she told the newspaper. “It’s making me fat. I hear what he said now, and I have to go eat pancakes now, and pancakes are very fattening.”
Of course, she wouldn’t be a California liberal without modifying the recipe.
“We make them with healthy flour, though,” she added. “Almond flour, coconut flour.”
This wasn’t just an offhand comment to the newspaper to promote her new anti-Trump album.
She’s Trump-eating those almond-flour pancakes so obsessively that she was even tweeting about it more than a year ago!
Donald Trump is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!

One expert is urging leftists to go on a diet… just not the kind you typically think of.
She’s recommending a “news diet.”

“On a practical level, try to limit the amount of news you consume on a daily basis,” Allison Abrams, a psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker, told NBC News. “This doesn’t mean not stay informed, rather, be informed but set boundaries for yourself.”
That’s right. Information is now like calories to the left. Don’t want too much! Apparently, expanding your mind is even worse than an expanding waistline.
Maybe it’s time for the left to rethink their worldview. If they’re not willing to join the growing conservative movement for the stronger economy, lower crime rates, or fairer trade deals — now they have another reason.
Do it for a slimmer body!
