GOP congressman: Democrats disrespected Trump during SOTU, Republicans were right to heckle Obama

During a speech at a factory in Ohio on Monday afternoon, President Trump accused Democrats of being “treasonous” because they had not stood to applaud him during his first State of the Union speech. In an interview with CNN’s New Day on Tuesday morning, Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) attempted to defend those remarks.

“Well, no, I wouldn’t use the word treasonous. But, boy, was it embarrassing,” he told host Alisyn Camerota.

As several outlets have since pointed out, treason, as outlined in the Constitution, consists of “levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

1. Calling Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) a hypocrite would be lame.
