Attention Must Be Paid!



#45 said today that Congressmen and women who didn't stand up and clap for him during the SOTU address committed treason.


The POTUS actually spoke those words which are EXACTLY what one would hear from an authoritarian figure -- actually, a power-drunk dictator who would round up those people, put them in jail, then take them out and shoot them.

Trump actually called American Congressmen and women traitors for not sucking up to him!

That's where we are now.

And the current GOP is okay with this.


One of my commenters reminded me that the Tweet below is a PARODY tweet by Trump. I did not notate it as such because I thought we'd all figure that out. Apparently Trump's REAL Tweets are so awful, that the parody Tweets now look real. The one below is NOT real.

They are patriots and their actions were not treason.

Jerry, to an unAmerican despot, they're treasonous.

Trump has regularly boasted on Twitter that the stock market rise, which actually began in 2009 at the end of the last recession, is the direct result of his policies on taxes and regulation.

Just so you know:

Funny thing Kim Jong Un had a member of the government executed for not paying enough attention and clapping hard enough at one of his speeches.

If it wasn't for our Constitution, Trump would do the same.

Nameless Cynic, I knew that was a parody tweet by Trump in this post. I guess I should have notated it so, but I thought it would be evident. Apparently Trump is so outrageously awful in his tweets that many people believed this one was a reall one too. I'll note it now.

Ray, It's a well-known fact that Trump is an authoritarian figure worshipper. He's praised all the despots in the world, starting with Putin. Also the Philippines' Duerte, and Turkey's Erdogan. He praised them all and they've all murdered their citizens who disagree with him.

Everyone's condemned Trump for this, except his supporters. Remember, they're the same people who called Barack Obama a tyrant. Idiots.

Did anyone see this:

Sen. Tammy Duckworth: ‘Cadet Bone Spurs’ Won’t Tell Me When To Clap
The wounded veteran bristles at the suggestion that not applauding him is “treasonous.”

The democrats should have taken a knee instead of not clapping for the soldiers and the flag. Look how much positive press kneeling has given the NFL.
