Fox News reporter Todd Piro spoke to a group of viewers in North Carolina on Wednesday who accused President Donald Trump’s critics of treason.
Following a winter storm in North Carolina, Piro traveled to a diner in Dunn to “talk about the serious issues of the day.”
One diner named Cathy — a government contractor — told Piro that she supports a government shutdown “even though it would hurt me financially.”
“We need the wall,” she explained. “There are so many people trying to bust down our wall and come into our country illegally. It’s not that we don’t want them, we do want them but we want them to come legally so we can see that they are here for the right purposes and not a terrorist or something. We need that wall.”
Piro also spoke to Bob, who called future Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) “buffoons.”
“All they want to do is increase their own power and disparage the president,” Bob said.
“What do you say when people call this president, President Trump, unpresidential?” Piro wondered.
“I think it’s next to treason,” Bob insisted. “I think they need to support the president no matter who he is. You know, all this current group of Democrats are doing is providing aid and comfort to our enemies. And last I heard that was the definition of treason.”

Here is how Republicans are reacting when confronted with the new rape allegation against Trump
Once again, President Donald Trump has been accused of a sexual assault — one of the most severe charges yet, in fact — and yet the Republican Party continues to make clear that it will not take these allegations seriously.
Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.
‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant
President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw
