In today's hyper-polarized political climate, a formerly-used term has come back into rotation to describe those with serious disdain for the president: "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

The big picture: This isn't the first episode of wide-spread "derangement;" the late conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer coined the term "Bush Derangement System" in 2003. And, of course, it made its rounds when Barack Obama took office.

What they're saying:

Whoopi Goldberg and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro got into an argument on "The View" Thursday when Pirro accused Goldberg of having Trump Derangement Syndrome, the Washington Post reports.

  • Goldberg said: "Listen, I don't have 'Trump Derangement' — let me tell you what I have. I'm tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’ ... [C]learly you don’t watch the show, so you don’t know that I don’t suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this."
  • Pirro said: "You know what’s horrible? ... When people who shouldn't be here end up murdering the children of American citizens."

The Federalist labeled calls for impeachment as a side-effect of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

President Trump tweeted:

Sen. Rand Paul cited Trump Derangement Syndrome when he objected to legislation by Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday.

What the 2020 election means for science

The 2020 presidential election presents two stark paths for the direction of future-focused scientific research.

Why it matters: Science is a long game, with today's breakthroughs often stemming from research carried out decades ago, often with government help. That means the person who occupies the White House over the next four years will help shape the state of technology for decades into the future.

Zeta, classified as a "significant" Category 2 hurricane, made landfall along the southeastern coast of Louisiana on Wednesday evening, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The state of play: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) requested a pre-landfall Emergency Declaration in a letter to President Trump on Tuesday. The hurricane is producing 110-mph maximum sustained winds and stronger gusts. The core of Zeta — including its destructive eyewall — moved ashore near Cocodrie.
