GOP Lawmakers Want To Name Route 66 'Donald J. Trump Highway' And People Are Outraged

Source: Huffington Post

Two GOP state lawmakers in Oklahoma have drawn backlash after calling for a section of the iconic highway Route 66 to be dedicated to President Donald Trump.

State Sens. Marty Quinn and Nathan Dahm introduced a bill on Tuesday that would name a 13-mile stretch of the world-famous road the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” The famous road, which originally stretched from Chicago to Southern California, crosses northeastern Oklahoma.

29. There used to be a Highway 666,

since renamed U.S. Highway 491. That might be more appropriate.

after Dump will be a reminder of his crimes and his party's collusion.

7. Fuckwads dropped their plan

Two state lawmakers from suburban Tulsa, Oklahoma — dubbed the "capital" of Route 66 in an online poll last year — filed legislation Tuesday to name an Oklahoma stretch of the iconic highway after the 45th president of the United States.

Oklahoma state Sens. Marty Quinn, R-Claremore, and Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, were behind the effort to call part of Route 66 the Donald Trump Highway.

But a day after filing the bill, Dahm gave up on the idea after pushback from the Route 66 Association of Oklahoma and Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell (also a Republican), whose responsibility includes marketing and branding for the Sooner State.

on a public resource.

13. And when pray tell do we get the John Wilkes Booth Parkway?

And what part do these scattered brain idiots don't get about Donald Trump? He is a crook
& a traitor to America. End of story. 40 years after the end of the fairness doctrine we
now have Fox news, hate talkers, web site crap, "think tanks," right wing evangelical
pastors, and that has cooked a lot of brains.

Hey State Sens. Marty Quinn and Nathan Dahm stay on that Trump-tanic ... free ice in
every room.

42. Nixon Freeway

Per Wikipedia, it's actually the EASTERN end of 90 that goes through Yorba Linda: "The eastern portion of SR 90 runs along Imperial Highway between Beach Boulevard (State Route 39) in La Habra and State Route 91 in Anaheim Hills, also passing through Brea and Yorba Linda. A stretch in Yorba Linda between Yorba Linda Boulevard and Orangethorpe Avenue was relinquished to the city in 2002 and built to freeway standards. The city renamed it the Richard M. Nixon Freeway in honor of the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon, who was born in Yorba Linda less than half a mile away from the road. "

Not talking about his own private branding.

I can see it will happen though. Especially in the Red States. I'm sure Trump would like his face carved into Mount Rushmore as well.

They needed to set up tolls in order to pay trump to license his name.

Good thing they reconsidered.

Last edited Fri Nov 8, 2019, 04:28 PM - Edit history (1)

that used to be part of Route 66. It's been over 20 years since I worked for the company that set me to Phoenix regularly, but the street that had been part of Route 66 had developed a "new" industry to take advantage of all of the ramshackle motels.

I think the part of Route 66 that consists of streetwalkers (some female, but mostly transvestite) would be the perfect analogy for Trump.
