    For most people it is not anywhere near the level of psychosis.
    However, for a few it seems that they imagine much more than is posted, then react to what they have imagined.

    Kind of related: the internet is filling up with little videos of Trump backers losing their shit in public.

    Which was predicted, and perfectly in character, and most alert Americans had sort of mentally bunkered up at the prospect, but I'm not sure it's what the OP had in mind.

    When winning an election increases peoples's stress level, to the point of touching off little mini-episodes like this: http://money.cnn.com/2016/11/28/news/companies/trump-supporter-delta-air-lines/index.html

    we might really be in new territory. I was thinking this was W 2000 redux, with a touch of George Wallace X Ronald Reagan just for stability. But the stability is missing.

    Or are we looking at the insidious influence of soccer? Soccer normalized this kind of thing in its native habitats long ago, maybe we're just catching up now in the US.
