White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump was “clearly joking” when he called Democrats treasonous [“Trump’s attacks undermine his call for unity in address,” Feb. 7, news]. Somehow, I didn’t get the joke. Did anyone else? There are many things to joke about. Treason is not one of them.
