Standing by a vile president is 'morally treasonable'

 "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else."

-- Theodore Roosevelt, in The Kansas City Star, May 7, 1918
