Donald Trump toured a manufacturing plant in Ohio Monday in an effort to highlight his tax cuts, and it went about as well as you’d expect: in place of touting any sort of technological expertise, Trump said “I love equipment” after touring one of the factories.

In addition to Trump’s standard inability to form spontaneous statements with any sort of eloquence, Trump also casually accused the Democrats in Congress of being “treasonous.”
You know, like you do.
During his speech in Ohio, Trump mentioned that many Democrats did not stand or applaud after his State of the Union address. The President deemed such behavior to be “un-American.”
“They were like Death and Un-American. Un-American. Somebody said ‘treasonous.’ I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not. I mean, they certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much. But you look at that and it’s really very, very sad.”
Sure. Why not call such behavior “treasonous”? Apart from the fact that actual treason involves attempting to kill a governmental leader or overthrow one’s personal government via betrayal and subterfuge?
