The struggle is real for the multitudes who have still not come to grips with the results of the 2016 elections. Just ask the couple who, while cruising on Route 28 in Hyannis last month, encountered a living, breathing victim of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

A man and his girlfriend told police they were followed by a crazed young woman who confronted them about the TRUMP bumper sticker on the back of their car. They shot video as the woman slammed her car into theirs at least twice before speeding off. Police identified a suspect by viewing the video, which clearly captured the incident as well as the imbecile's license plate number.

State Police arrested 25-year-old Chloe Wright of Taunton in Bourne on Monday after spotting the plate. The Cape Cod Times says Wright plead not guilty to a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon and was released on $1,250 bail. She was also ordered to stay away from the victim.

The inability to grasp reality is still haunting many Americans. The hatred is ginned up by the media, which fans the flames to build an audience for the purpose of increasing profits. In other words, you are being used by the wealthy media folks to make them and their media outlets even wealthier.

Hate the election results and dislike Trump all day long if it floats your boat. But don't be the patsies of the left and the corporate giants who drive the media. Do what I do. When I see a car with a Hillary, Obama or Warren sticker, I just have a good laugh at the operator's expense. It's good therapy. Okay, sometimes I point, too.

Assaulting a Trump supporter or damaging his property is only going to get you at least a night in jail and perhaps a fine. Do you think Jim Acosta or Mika and Morning Joe are going to cut you a check to pay for it?

Just remember, there is another election in two years.
