The current occupant of the White House on Monday accused Democrats of “treason” for not clapping for him during the State of the Union address. Words mean things and that word fits Trump, not the Democrats who refused to applaud his so-called achievements after his first year in office which consisted of race-baiting, lies, and attacks on his critics.
“Can we call that treason? Why not?” the former reality show star said during a speech in Ohio. “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.”
Trump said Democrats “would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well,” calling their behavior “very selfish.”

Trump wondered why Democrats didn’t clap when he brought up ‘black unemployment’ during the SOTU. That would be because it has been declining for years, and declined more when former President Barack Obama was in office, in comparison to the Dotard’s first year.
We’re glad that 45 brought up the word ‘treason.’ Trump is plagued with scandals and some his associates have been indicted. Colluding with a hostile foreign power is treasonous.
Treason is defined as “the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.”
The punishment for committing treason:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
Trump is a deeply flawed individual who seeks praise in order to feed his massive ego. Because of the love we share for our country, Democrats chose not to clap. Also, the freedoms we enjoy in this country affords us the right to clap or not clap.
Trump should look up ‘obstruction of justice,’ too. The three articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon were for obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and contempt of Congress.
Speaking of clap, Trump should get tested for it since he had unprotected sex with a porn star.
