Gaslighting

“Lots of adults started paying attention to Teen Vogue recently. It started with an opinion article by Lauren Duca, the magazine’s weekend editor, called “Donald Trump Is Gaslighting America.” Gaslighting is a form of psychology abuse that causes the victim to question his or her own sanity, Ms. Duca writes, ‘and that’s precisely what Trump is doing to this country.”
