Quote of the Day: Don the Con Calls Democrats Treasonous for Not Applauding


Don the Con gave his first State of the Union address the other day.  Some (most) Democrats in the audience failed to applaud when he gave his big lines– Republicans stood and enthusiastically applauded some of his more ridiculous claims.  Later, at a rally, he called those who failed to applaud treasonous:

“They were like death and un-American,” he said. “Un-American. Somebody said treasonous. I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not?”

As Masha Gessen reports in the New Yorker, during the time of Stalin, in the USSR, failure to applaud enthusiastically enough was definitely considered treasonous.  Is this where Don wants us to go?  Vlad “the Impaler” Putin has already gotten his country back into that territory.
