I wouldn't be so quick to brush it off.
"I hear this every week, sometimes twice a day: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." No, it isn't.
To be clear, insanity is a legal term pertaining to a defendant's ability to determine right from wrong when a crime is committed. Here's the first sentence of law.com's lengthy definition:
The DSM-5 defines antisocial personality disorder as "[a] pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others, occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three (or more) of the following:
Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors, as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest.
Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure.
Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead.
Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults.
Reckless disregard for safety of self or others.
Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations.
Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another."
Full Definition of insanity
: a deranged state of the mind usually occurring as a specific disorder (as schizophrenia)
: such unsoundness of mind or lack of understanding as prevents one from having the mental capacity required by law to enter into a particular relationship, status, or transaction or as removes one from criminal or civil responsibility
Insanity. n. mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior."
I'd say she has a hard time distinguishing fantasy from reality, is most likely neglecting her children due to it(the second criteria, somewhat) and the last one.....well. She has uncontrollable impulsive behavior down pat.

Here we have a shining example of stupidity.
What it boils down to is this golem looking woman decided to give the bird to a Trump supporter who was standing in his yard. The Trump supporter then followed her and scared her.
It is pretty funny really. The woman tries to play the victim and involve the police who tell her it's pretty much her own fault. The cop deserves a medal just for having to deal with this stupid b!tch.
It illustrates perfectly what is happening and why so few anti-Trump people can be taken seriously.
A dose of justice is served to a SJW. It's fun to watch.
Warning the video contains graphic language, and even more graphic stupidity.
