The president of the United States seems more and more unhinged every day, but is he any crazier than the average consumer of right-wing media?

Here's one of the stories currently at Gateway Pundit on the subject of Ruth Bader Ginsberg's cancer diagnosis:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer and Received Radiation; Too Bad Google and YouTube are Censoring Cancer Cures that Actually Work

Earlier today the US Supreme Court disclosed that Ginsburg received treatment this summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

The beloved Supreme Court Justice has pancreatic cancer and is receiving radiation.

It’s too bad research on real alternatives that could save Ginsburg’s life are no longer readily available online.

The tech giants deleted Natural News from their platforms over the past year. Natural News specializes in alternative treatments and methods to treat diseases. They are no longer allowed by the liberal tech giants to offer alternatives for ailing Americans.

Democrats cheered when Natural News was deplatformed because they have a conservative bent.

So liberals thought it was great.

Now those same tech giants are killing beloved liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg by censoring alternative treatments that could save her.
Meanwhile, over at Big League Politics, there's this headline:

A message echoed by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show today:
So the ChiComs announce they’re gonna raise tariffs, $75 billion. The Dow Jones Industrial Average down about 500 points, and Trump hereby orders U.S. companies to start looking for an alternative to China for manufacturing and so forth. Of course, the media and the Democrat Party find themselves in a fascinating situation. They’re actively hoping for American economic decline. They actually find themselves on the side of the ChiComs here.

If the ChiComs are going to try to make life tougher for Trump and tougher for American consumers, then the Democrat Party really has no choice but than to support them, and the media ditto. And that is exactly what is happening as this story unfolds.

Rather than the media and a political party joining the president trying to bring a trading partner to heel and to engineer a fair set of trading circumstances, the media and the Democrat side with the ChiComs, portraying Trump as the out-of-control Looney Tune that is destabilizing the world.
But here's Limbaugh's most paranoid pronouncement of the day:
Multiple sources on Martha’s Vineyard say that the Obamas are now in escrow for the estate owned by the owner of the Boston Celtics....

The Obamas have just sunk $15 million into something that may not be there in 10 years because of climate change and rising sea levels. So why would the Obamas do that? Why would the brilliant Barack Hussein O plunk down $15 million on a property that’s gonna be ruined and destroyed inside of 10, maybe 12 years at the outside because of climate change?

Well, let’s see. What could the answer be? Maybe because they know that this whole climate change thing is nothing but a gigantic left-wing agenda-driven hoax!

... the truth is Algore doesn’t really believe it. He’s done a great job of convincing people. Obama doesn’t really believe this crap. If he did, they wouldn’t be buying a $15 million home that’s gonna be overrun by the ocean in years. Now, some of you are saying, “Well, wait a minute, Rush. Maybe not. Maybe they don’t want to live in it any longer than that. They love it and they want to get in it while they can, Rush.” I’m sure this will be one of the rationales that their devotees will come up with to explain it, but it’s a futile exercise.

They don’t any more believe that the sea levels are gonna rise to swallow up Martha’s Vineyard than I do. And this proves it.
Now admittedly, some of this nonsense doesn't bubble up to Trump's beloved Fox News. But generally speaking, the right is nuts. We may think Trump is delusional, but how can you not be delusional if you're a regular consumer of conservative media? And why should we expect Republican voters to recognize the weakness of Trump's grasp on reality when theirs is just as weak?
