If this keeps up, someone's gonna sack Troy over a pretty lady. Probably like Helen.

Memes have always been around. Fake News used to be Yellow Journalism. Beware who is trying to coin new terms.

I'm really going to enjoy seeing Donald Fraud be the first president tried with treason and watch all the Trumpkins go eternally silent.

Dating back to Ross Perot in 1992, back when Twitter didn't exist, and Perot thought he could take all his concerns to the people on national TV chats every week...Which started to lose their folksy novelty after the first three or four.

(As SNL's Dennis Miller joked at the time, it did seem rather naive of Perot, whose indie-party populist-shakeup "millionaire business background" made him politically inexperienced:
"The minute any senator asks for soft-bribe money to get things going in Congress, Perot's going to be on TV five minutes later going 'Look what this feller did, can you believe that? Y'all go get him for me!")

Well, let's be careful about our terms here--
"Treason" was a term thrown about back in the days of European kings for anybody they didn't like who said anything bad about them (and who does that sound like?)

But the trial of the US v. Aaron Burr, back when Burr was suspected of making private deals with Spain behind the government's back, was instrumental in first cementing the strict US constitutional definition of "Treason":
Under US law, it has to be a witnessed act of the accused party himself making deals with a foreign power, in the intent of a deliberate destabilization or personal overthrow of the country's leadership...

(looks at evidence)

...On second thought, you're right--LET'S GET HIM!

I can think of examples much older. World War 1 and 2, "Don't Tread On Me", I think even some preserved Roman graffiti.
