'Post-Election Stress Disorder': Vets Take Issue With New Term for Upset Liberals
A state of depression among Democrats has been a nationwide theme since the election of President Donald Trump.
And now, doctors are treating this crippling anger as an unofficial medical condition.
"Post-election stress disorder" is the new term created by mental health professionals for what some liberals are experiencing. However, some see this name as a slap in the face to veterans suffering from actual post-traumatic stress disorder.
U.S. Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) joined "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to discuss the creation of the term.
Mast is an Army veteran who lost both of his legs and a finger during an improvised explosive device accident in Afghanistan.
"There was a big missed opportunity in naming it 'Post-Election Stress Disorder,'" he said. "I would have preferred they name it 'Post-Inauguration Stress Disorder,' that way they could have called it 'PISD.'
"There's a big difference between being pissed off about things and what happens on the battlefield."
Mast said he has empathy for the stress in people's lives as a result of the election, but that doesn't mean there is any real comparison to service members experiencing the horrors of war.
