An un­set­tling new cul­ture seems to have sprung up 20 months af­ter Mr. Trump was inau­gu­rated, fu­eled by the pres­i­dent’s tena­cious per­sis­tence, neg­a­tive press cov­er­age, shrill out­cry and much more. This un­prece­dented po­lit­i­cal phe­nom­e­non has in­spired a new book by talk ra­dio king­pin Michael Savage, and the ti­tle tells all: “Stop Mass Hys­te­ria: Amer­ica’s In­san­ity from the Salem Witch Tri­als to the Trump Witch Hunt.”

Mr. Savage does not mince words in his 26th book, ar­riv­ing in Oc­to­ber.

“Ha­tred is in the air. We are liv­ing in an age of hate, in which men­tal pol­lu­tion is worse than air pol­lu­tion. The most ac­ces­si­ble and com­pre­hen­sive of all uni­fy­ing agents, ha­tred is spread­ing like a virus into all-toow­ill­ing hosts. It uni­fies knee-jerk lib­er­als, no mat­ter what their other dif­fer­ences. Ha­tred of con­ser­va­tives, Trump, and his vot­ers is just one of many cases of mass hys­te­ria in­fect­ing Amer­i­can so­ci­ety to­day, but it is likely the most de­struc­tive,” the au­thor writes in the very first para­graph.

“The left does not just hate Pres­i­dent Trump. They hate this na­tion,” Mr. Savage later adds.
