    Trump and his allies, including many people on this board, appear to have no issue with using the word "treason" in regards to those who had anything to do with investigating him or those around him for potential conspiracy.

    Accusing people of treason should be a serious matter. To see and hear the president use the word is even more serious. It simply should not be a word so readily used unless there is strong evidence that such people are or have committed treason.

    Now Trump is saying that the Democrats are committing treason for not doing something about the border.

    Donald J. Trump on Twitter: "I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!"

    What's your opinion? Should people, including the president himself, be accusing people of treason? Trump supporters, what would you have said if Obama had accused Republicans and those who opposed him of treason?
    I find that when people throw around terms such as Treason, Criminal, Cheater, or Snowflake, it often turns out that it is they that the term fits like a shoe.

    People have been clamoring in the streets over the span months. Claiming just as many things about Trump, if not more along with personally attacking his family and defending those that got called out for doing so.

    So no. I'm not going to hold his feet to the fire for something like this. We knew for a long time that this whole collusion conspiracy was just that, a conspiracy and everyone kept pushing it. We had officials say that they had audio and video evidence of his treason and not a single one of them has surfaced as of yet.

    So, as long as you're willing to let the whole lot of them get a pass on this. I'm completely fine with letting him have his time to be pissed at something that warrants just as much right for him to be so pissed.


    Exactly, how could we possibly expect Trump to act better than the frustrated people in the streets who are at the mercy of this undisciplined, ignorant, vindictive, egotistical Putin-lover?

    It's just stupid to expect more from him than we expect from random internet users who are waiting to see what the next shoe he'll drop on their lives is.

    Sheesh, give the orange snowflake a break, people.

    Invoking the word "treason" as Trump and others do is really just an appeal to emotions.

    Treason is the only crime defined in the US Constitution, at Article III Section 3.

    Trump is doing this for effect only, because he is really just in political theater, playing to the cameras.

    In that regard, it is like calling a person anti-Semitic because they discuss the criminal actions of the Israeli government. It is a desperate ploy.

    Trump does have a knack of using insults which apply directly to him.

    It's like he hears someone else make an apt criticism of him -- say someone calls him capricious, for example. Then he stews on it so much that it gets stuck in his head and becomes the new catchphrase in his routine. He can hardly wait for chances to say, "Oh yeah, YOU'RE capricious, and YOU'RE capricious, and YOU'RE capricious."

    Even if he doesn't know what the word means.

    Those same people had no problem accusing him of treason. Did you start on thread about that?

    You've been clear on that throughout but you fail to recognize you're always going to get it.

    Your post restates the denials the Right is full of in addition to something else you're full of. You guys post as if Putin were an okay guy who minds his own business and has nothing to do with anything occurring in the USA. You guys invent stuff about Clinton while denying everything about Putin-Trump. That's because you guys are the Fanboys. You want the USA to be more like Putin's Russia than the other way around.

    The part of the country you're in down there in Bama hasn't ever been loyal to the Constitution. We see it in your handsome avatar. You guys haven't ever liked the Constitution or accepted it. After the civil war you really considered the Constitution subversive to your way of life, with all those nasty amendments and the like. So your guys back then built monuments to your heroes and toward the day of revival. You're certain this is it and that it's your long awaited chance over generations and lifetimes.

    You know that without Trump you'll never have Putin so it kills you to think of Trump gone. I don't believe any Fanboy who says he doesn't care for Putin. A major reason I don't is that you guys always attack anyone who criticizes Putin. And Trump.

    Putin-Trump. You can't hide from it and you guys can't dismiss it. No way.

    I cant look at any news about politics and feel much more than "meh, same old,same old".....hyperbole is the new standard, with both sides trying to outdo each other in outlandish name calling.
    Name calling is one thing, undermining all the institutions of america and anyone trump doesn't like is another. Our president is the head cheerleader for hatred in america and he does a fantastic job of feeding red meat to his base. I would even go so far as to say it's what he does best.
