Actress Julianna Margulies revealed that her Trump Derangement Syndrome was so overwhelming after the 2016 presidential election that she had to stop watching the news at night.

If she didn’t, she’d suffer screaming Trump-centric nightmares.

The “Good Wife” actor appeared on CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Monday where she discussed politics, though she said she tries to avoid doing so.

Margulies, who once co-hosted a fundraising event for former presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told Colbert that she went “insane” after the 2016 election.

“One of the things I stopped doing was, I do not read the news at night. Because I was waking up in the middle of the night from nightmares of just screaming,” she said, laughing. “I was in a boardroom, there was a long … table, and it was just, the guy who’s in the Oval Office right now, sitting there, and I walked in and I was screaming — screaming! — ‘Don’t you care about the next [generation?!]'”

“I was going crazy and screaming at him and yelling, and that was 2016,” she recalled, “and I woke up in a sweat and went, ‘Oh, my God, I’ve gone insane, and I have to stop reading the news at night.'”

The actress went on to admit that she now gets her news from the New York Times — which she reads in the morning — as well as NPR. She also occasionally watches “PBS Newshour.”

Margulies is set to appear in National Geographic miniseries about an outbreak of the ebola virus — titled, “The Hot Zone,” after the 1994 book of the same name — which will air on Memorial Day.

She also told Colbert that it’s high time people stop denying science.

“I am reassured that a studio like National Geographic is shedding light on such an important problem. This is a global issue, this is not something that just happens in Africa,” she explained. “It’s not about if this is going to happen in the U.S. again, it’s when. Finally we’re shedding light on a global problem and we need to support our scientists and stop denying scientists. I’m encouraged.”

      Hollywood’s opinion is of no consequence. You Marguiles are nothing more than a nit on a screen. Your views are probably less valid than most because you live in La La land or NYC, both dumps ruined by the Dems in this country.

    You need mental health therapy Ms Margulies. We survived 8 years with the likes of Obama and you will do the same with President Trump. TDS is an indication of an illness associated with people who can’t live in the real world. Oh wait, you speak lines in your job written by someone else. You don’t live in the real world! Get a life instead of spending your days whining because you didn’t get your way!

      Exactly, Maureen. These folks are so full of themselves that anything that completely contradicts their personal views hits them pretty hard. You can imagine how other things that randomly happen, daily, must make life a little tough for them.

    The reason why people went and are still going crazy is because their eternal souls know that time is about up for the fallen human race. Trump was a turning point in time , and prophecy. So, people should accept Christ Jesus now, before it is too late. J.C.I.T.W.T.L.

    Most Communists feel the way she does, because Trump is turning over their apple cart and turning us back to the U.S. Constitution…

    She’s got to be a nut case. I didn’t like 8 years of Obama, but I didn’t go crazy over it either. Get a damn life!

    Now who is she? Never heard of her. Who cares what she thinks, she doesn’t pay my bills. I’ll vote for President Trump and cancel out her vote. She means nothing to 99.999% of our country.

    Another washed up Hollywood has been who wants a little press. Actors need to stick to acting. I’ll now add her to the list with Allysa Milano, Kevin Cosner, ………. that I don’t watch any more.

    She really needs having her head examined.Her pattern of behaviour looks like a combination of TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME and hysteria.But nut cases like her will never get over what happened to Hillary Clinton on 8th November,2016.She should get in touch with a therapist in order to prepare herself for another defeat in 2020.
