1. One the one hand, the US tries to separate the Huawei saga from the US-China trade talks. On the other hand, the US accuses Huawei of spying for the Chinese military or security services. Using an analogy, while suing Simon for "cheating" his company at his father's behest, the businessman tried to separate the "cheating" case in his business talks with his father.

In view of this, I coin the term "trumptalk" to mean the following:

(a) As a noun, to mean "double-talk” or “a contradictory or illogical remark".

(b) As a verb, to mean "engaging in double-talk" or “employing a double standard” or “speaking contradictorily or illogically".

2. Here are some examples of the use of the new term.

(i) In his trumptalk, Donald Trump called India his “true friend and partner” while labelling it as a "tariff king".

(ii) In his trumptalk, the plaintiff said that he had faith in his best friend's honesty while accusing him of adultery with his wife.

(iii) The jealous man trumptalked that he had full confidence in his wife's love but expressed displeasure whenever she smiled at other men.

(iv) The employer trumptalked that his staff had earned a lot of money for his company but he could not afford to award them with a year-end bonus or increase their wages.

(v) While trumptalking about upholding the rule of law, the US threatened to retaliate and impose sanctions – even seeking to criminally prosecute ICC officials – if the International Criminal Court formally proceeded with opening an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by US military and intelligence staff during the war in Afghanistan or pursued any investigation into Israel or other US allies.

I see your TDS is still in full force. :rolleyes:

Trump Derangement Syndrome
Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.

Symptoms for this condition can be very diverse, ranging from hysterical outbursts to a complete mental break. TDS can also often result in the sufferer exhibiting violent, homicidal, or even genocidal desires.

Sufferers have also been known to wish direct self harm on themselves (such as increased taxes, a desire for an economic recession, and even nuclear war), provided that a action might in some way hurt Donald Trump.

Paranoia is also a common symptom of TDS. Sufferers have been known to believe that they are in some way being persecuted, and in some cases believe they are about to be a victim of genocide. The paranoia does however not seem to be bad enough to make TDS sufferers act on their beliefs to the extent of attempting to actually leave the united states.

If properly treated, suffers of TDS can make a full recovery. Many suffers have been known to grow out of TDS, yet many can only be treated by having their condition directly treated through the application of logical reasoning. It is also known that products containing soy can exasperate the condition.
"Did you hear what sarah said the other day? She was saying how the US is more authoritarian than North korea, and that we're actually the bad guys! She says she wants to move to North Korea when she graduates!"

"Yeah I know.. she has a serious case of TDS.."

"What's that?"

"Trump Derangement Syndrome"

"Is it treatable?"

"Not for someone doing gender studies, it isn't!"

My great friend Ralph, now you manage to get back your old Mr Bean's facial transplant. :eek:

TDS stands for your dear cult master's "Temporary Disastrous Shutdown". :)

It's as simple as that -- no need for any long explanation.
