For a group that throws around the word “treason” so lightly (remember how people tweeting #ReleaseTheMemo were traitors?), The Resistance sure has a fit when someone like President Trump uses the word.
Liberals were triggered earlier today when Trump suggested during a speech in Cincinnati that it was un-American not to stand for good news during his State of the Union address.
President Trump calls Democrats “un-American” for not standing and applauding during his State of the Union address. Adds: “Somebody said treasonous. Yea, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not?"

“Can we call that treason?” Trump said, referring to Democrats who did not clap for him during his State of the Union address last week. “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.” https://t.co/4koEcSI39p

It’s probably meaningless to most liberals that it was someone in Trump’s audience who brought up the word “treasonous,” but Trump seemed fine with it, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi — who was probably the most conspicuous audience member during the State of the Union — is most certainly not fine with it.
Seems Pelosi felt that standing for good news under President Trump would equate to some sort of loyalty pledge.
Every American should be alarmed by how @realDonaldTrump is working to make loyalty to him synonymous with loyalty to our country. That is not how democracy works.

See, Trump was demanding loyalty to himself, which the Democrats most certainly were not going to go along with. Funny how the same people who lauded a president who said that “elections matter” cry “that’s not how democracy works” whenever they lose.
What is alarming is that you think people believe you. https://t.co/Wgix6yyolc

I am loyal to my country. You on the other hand are loyal only to Illegals. You are Un-American to the core. https://t.co/Jx0HnqbE3h

Putting the non-existent rights of illegals above American citizens is how "democracy" works. Right… SanFranNan? https://t.co/Jhoc2LAB3c
