Ted Lieu just went viral with scathing response to Trump’s complaint about “treasonous” Dems

After failing to rouse the masses with his State of the Union speech, Trump was back at his old tricks: namely, rehashing the details of the event and framing himself as the victim. This time, it was reframing the Democrats’ polite refusal to clap during his spouting of state propaganda as literal treason.

Democrats and the rest of polite society were not having it today. California Senator Ted Lieu fired back on Twitter.

Now, it’s clear that Trump was deeply bothered by the Democrats’ refusal to bow and scrape. During a speech ostensibly about tax reform today, Trump whined that the Democrats had “bad energy” at the State of the Union. He added that they were “like death” and “unAmerican” before making the stunning statement that they were in fact “treasonous.”

“Somebody said treasonous. I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not?” the president said.

The comments represent a disgusting new low for a man who seems like he can sink no lower. For the President of the United States to equate the disapproving behavior of his political opponents with treason is an incredibly dangerous thing. It’s the kind of rhetoric you expect from an aspiring despot, not the leader of the world’s greatest democracy.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
