Donald Trump accuses Democrats of treason for not applauding him

Trump Slams 'Treasonous' Democrats For Not Applauding State Of Union Address Donald Trump accuses Democrats of treason for not applauding him

In his State of the Union address, Trump touted rates of unemployment for blacks and Hispanics that he said were the "lowest in the history of the country".

While parts of the speech were met with applause, the Democratic side of the chamber remained stoic as Trump touted the future successes of his tax bill and the repeal of the individual mandate, a crucial part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. That if these non-clappers really loved the country, they would be applauding when he touted how low black unemployment had dipped under his tenure. It was like - it was a game.

After recounting sobering stories from North Korea, Trump extoled the American people as a nation of dreamers and encouraged them to show the worldwide community the strength of Americans. And as odd as they are individually, they are even more weird in combination.

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing", he blared.

"You know, you can work hard, but if you don't have the right leader setting the right tone, in all fairness - I am not even saying, I am non-braggadocious", he said. He was a nice guy. "I don't think his constituents do, either, and I think that's why his numbers are in the tank". And he was clapping.

He accused the president of making "exaggerated threats against principles, freedoms and institutions" and showing a "flagrant disregard for truth and most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons". To start, it immediately diminishes those who find it upsetting. Just, when you go in there, he voted against you. And he was probably severely reprimanded. That's what it means. "It was bad energy", he said at a manufacturing plant a Cincinnati suburb.

They've showed us what they are made of and that they hate our president much more than they love America. "Even on positive news, really positive news like that, they were like ... death". Un-American. Somebody [in the crowd] said 'treasonous.' I mean, yeah, I guess, why not?

Some of his calls for "all of us [working] together, as one team, one people" hopefully had some impact on people stepping back from their party ties to see the country as a unified entity.

And if you weren't saddened watching the State of the Union, you're probably pretty depressed after reading that transcript. Obama, on the other hand, actually weaponized federal agencies to punish political opponents. Walz served in the National Guard for two decades, re-enlisted after September 11, and retired as a Sergeant Major.

Less than a day later, after his question had been answered with a squall of condemnation by Democrats and, as has become custom, silence or evasion by most Republicans, the White House began to reframe the message.

The president's incendiary assessment came in the middle of a speech created to tout the benefits of the Republican tax-cut package, which Trump said set off "a tidal wave of good news that continues to grow each day".
