Becoming more like Stalin, Mussolini and Saddam every day, Trump called out the Democrats that did not clap at the most recent State of the Union Address as “treasonous,” and “un-American” in a speech in Cincinnati today. Video at this link to Huffington Post.

Trump pouted that it seemed that Democrats would rather see Trump fail than America succeed. Apparently, Trump does not understand that HE is not “America” and that many people believe that Trump’s ideas for American “success’ represent America’s decline. Trump noted that he had to continually look over to one side as the one with all the energy, that he couldn’t look at the Democrats. Perhaps he saw too much truth and introspection in their eyes.

Presidents have long given State of the Union Speeches to half cheering chambers, Obama even had an opposing member yell “You lie!” in the middle of one of his State of the Union speeches. It took a snowflake like Trump to declare that those who wouldn’t applaud for him were “treasonous” and un-American. Perhaps he should suggest that his Republican congress pass a law, one that requires all Senators and Congresspersons to stand and applaud ….when President Trump gives an address.

Stalin, Mussolini, Saddam, they likely are shocked that such a law isn’t in place already. What kind of dictatorship does Trump think he’s running, anyway?
