Oklahoma Senators introduce bill to rename part of Route 66 "President Donald J. Trump Highway."

Two Oklahoma state senators have introduced a bill that would rename a portion of the iconic Route 66 highway after President Trump.

Sens. Nathan Damn and Marty Quinn of Oklahoma filed the bill to rename the section of Route 66 President Donald J. Trump Highway Tuesday.

“We feel like this is a perfect opportunity to commemorate the great impact his leadership has had on improving the economy and bringing jobs and commerce back to our great state,” Dahm told KOKH.

If bill passes, a 13-mile section of the highway would be renamed. The section stretched from Miami, OK through Commerce, OK to the Industrial Parkway in Ottowa County.

1. Yet another reason to fly over Oklahoma, instead of driving through it without stopping.

9. My father was born and raised in OK City. He couldn't get out of there fast enough.

The day he turned eighteen, he enlisted in the Air Force and beat it out of there.

2. Hey, there are lots of good people all along this iconic route. You can't fly over the whole ...

damn country just because of a couple of nuts, who are basically tarnishing the route 66 legacy.

3. Why not "Trump University Memorial Highway"?

or "Donald J. Trump Foundation Memorial Highway"?

or "Trump Kids-in-Cages Highway"?

4. Unfortunate choice.

Mickey Mantle was from Commerce. I know nothing of his politics, but I do know that he was as humble as Trump is self-centered. Just too darned sad.

6. Who in their right mind would introduce naming something after a president

Last edited Wed Nov 6, 2019, 01:58 PM - Edit history (1)

under an impeachment inquiry?
Are they trying to reward him for being a traitor?

14. That was my immediate reaction

Maybe it won't make it through the Senate...it will still make it through the House, and that's not something to slap on a highway.

What is the purpose of this? Provocation?

18. Someone needs to get creative with road signs

During Watergate, the media pointed out a juxtaposition of street signs in Ann Arbor, Michigan: "Nixon" and "Bluett."

21. It will be known for its bedbug-ridden motels and cheap chicken joints.

The pavement will probably buckle, too, since the contractors haven't been paid.
