Trump accuses Dems of 'treasonous' behavior

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Monday accused Democrats of "treasonous" behavior during his State of the Union address, escalating partisan tensions during a crucial stretch for Congress.

Trump took aim at Democratic lawmakers who refused to applaud during his speech last week when he mentioned his achievements during his first year in office, a reaction he called “un-American.”

"Can we call that treason? Why not?" the president said during a speech in Ohio. "They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."

Trump signaled that Democrats’ refusal to cheer “very positive news” in his speech, such as low unemployment rates for Hispanics and African-Americans, will make it difficult for him to work with them on government spending and immigration.

40. Already did. THIS shows TheRealDonald off to those who

don't chug right wing Kool-Aid. The word "treason" has travel power, reaching out even to those who prefer not to pay attention.

Love it.

10. That is it as far as I am concerned- When are AMERICAN PATRIOTS (regardless of Party) going to start

....actually calling out who is REALLY GUILTY of TREASONOUS BEHAVIOUR?




And who is the real LIAR?

I wish that Adam Schiff could sue Trump.... Adam Schiff is honorable and a patriot and how fucking dare that Treasonous Traitor Trump who conspired and worked with the Russians to steal an election and to launder money for the Russian Oligarchs and also smear the name of heros and patriots in the FBI who want to protect our Nation from enemies like the Russians, get to say such things!!!!

I am so disgusted.....we are about to crash into a constitutional crisis....

What side are people on? Know the side you choose America....

The United States or Russia?

12. forget clapping, try flipping him the bird

32. Either that,

 

or all the dems should clap for him. As soon as he says one word they should all stand up and applaud. Then when he starts talking again stand up and applaud. Even better still they should shout at him and tell him he is wrong at everything he says. I mean really, put on a show. Why can't our Congress be like some parliaments where they not only yell at each other but fight.

37. just whining for attention

He thrives on adulation and anger.

Ridicule makes him get more outrageous.
He should be ridiculed and ostracized as the brat bully that he is. Look at what makes him lash out. Push enough buttons and even the cultists will see how unhinged he is.

24. Which is more treasonous...

...conspiring with a hostile foreign power for aid in getting elected in exchange for favoring their aims, or refusing to applaud the SOTU?

The unfortunate answer is: whichever of the two those with total governmental power deem to be treason.

36. Why clap? You lied throughout the entire SOTU address

People in the know, know exactly the facts and how things really are. No one claps for a person when they are lying (which is almost always) and spewing nonsense.

tRUMP doesn't know the meaning of treason ... period, but he will...
