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.
