"Can we call that treason?"

NYT's Mark Landler looks at Trump's "treason" comments:

President Trump on Monday accused Democrats who did not clap during his State of the Union address of being un-American and even treasonous. His remarks came in a rambling, discursive speech at a factory in Ohio, during which he celebrated his revival of the American economy as the stock market plummeted by more than 1,000 points.

"Can we call that treason?" Mr. Trump said of the stone-faced reaction of Democrats to his speech. "Why not? I mean, they certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."

Towleroad's Andy Towle discusses Trump's whining about the lack of adulation, and responds that "Treason is colluding with Russians to win an election."
Similarly, Crooks and Liars snarks:

"Collaborating with Russia to steal an election? THAT'S treasonous. Objecting to a despot's behavior? Not so much."

UPDATE: Senator Tammy Duckworth has a thing to say about that.

We don't live in a dictatorship or a monarchy. I swore an oath--in the military and in the Senate--to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs and clap when he demands I clap
