Now that the Dems have changed the definition of “treason” to mean “any idea that you may have that does not totally conform to theirs,” can we now accuse Chuck Schumer of treason for enjoying a Krispie Kreme with Putin?
The Senate’s Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, ramped up to Defcon 1 after President Trump met with Vladimir Putin.
“I’m from Brooklyn,” the New York Democart said on the Senate floor on Tuesday. “We learned one thing there, if we learned anything: when there’s a bully around, as Putin is, you show strength.

Second, we must offer to make Russia whole if it joins in our Iranian boycott and forgoes trade revenues with Iran. That will cost the U.S. roughly $2 billion to $3 billion a year, about what we spend in Iraq each week. Third, we should tell Mr. Putin we will cease building the ineffective antinuclear missile defense sites in Eastern Europe in return for him joining the boycott….
