Lawmaker to unveil bill ensuring nothing - 'no airport, no highway, no school'- is named after Trump

Source: The Hill

Rep. Linda Sánchez says she's poised to introduce legislation that would ban virtually everything — "even a bench" — from bearing President Trump's name.

“I don't believe that a seditious occupant of the White House should have ever have anything named after him," the California Democrat said of Trump in an interview with People published Monday, referring to Trump's efforts to cast doubt on the results of the 2020 election and his words of encouragement to a crowd of supporters before they laid siege to the Capitol on Wednesday.

“I don't think that he deserves any of the benefits that are conferred on prior presidents,” Sánchez said.

"I am working on a bill that would mean that nothing — not even a bench, no airport, no highway, no school — nothing — ever bear the name of this traitor."

After a monthslong, playful spat between the mayor of Danbury and the HBO host, the town renamed a sewage plant in the comedian’s honor.

19. Sewage procesing facilities do a pubic good- unlike Trump

Trump spews sewage from his mouth-anus. So I must strongly disagree. However, I propose putting his face on public urinals and in public toilet bowls (such as those in airports, bus stations, rail stations, etc.).

The guy who fired the air traffic controllers was always a particularly poor choice for the name of any airport.

Couldn't stand the post-hoc deification of that drooling senile old half-wit anyway.

Something to just turn the blade one more time - sounds like something Newt or BunkerBoy would really love to do.

Joe's gonna' be busy, but I'd look forward to that name change too - George Washington, John Lewis, John Glenn - all worthy suggestions.

It's on the list to be renamed, and "latrine in the middle of a swamp" is a perfect description.

Maybe it's improved since I was there 50+ years ago. maybe.

39. It was like two places. One had stores, theater, heat, humidity, and bugs.

The other side (they called it "tiger land" was the same, but no stores or theater. Just heat, humidity, and bugs.

I was on both sides, two different AITs.

I was kidding about naming it Fort Trump. Camp Misery might be too nice a name.

I think this may impact free speech if I want to have a private bench on my property that is the Trump bench. But could certainly see anything that gets Federal funding and gets Trump name attached can have its funding clawed back.

22. I spent a half hour writing an email

to the state gov. rep. in a neighboring district about this! She has some idea that a section of Interstate highway that goes through there should be named for him. Part of her "reasoning" was that other parts of the highway are dedicated to Obama and Rosa Parks.

I told her it would be a better idea to dedicate it to the people who died from Covid or even the capitol police who was killed in the pro-trump raid on the capitol.

42. THE BOOT! BENEDICT ARNOLD'S BOOT!

Sorry to yell, but I believe this should be the only way he is memorialized, and I am passionate about this.

The ONLY memorial to this man, and I mean that to exclude any kind of Library as well, should be along the lines of the “memorial” to Benedict Arnold, which is nothing more than a stone carving of a cavalryman's boot.


The monument commemorates Major General Benedict Arnold's service at the Battles of Saratoga in the Continental Army, but does not name him.



https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boot_Monument

If I had my way, his monument would be nothing more than a carving of a Flannel Moth Caterpillar. That’s it.

Fuck that traitorous asshole.

In case you don’t recall, the Trump Hair Caterpillar;

stricken from all pylons and obelisks,
stricken from every monument of America.
Let the name of Trump be unheard and unspoken,
erased from the memory of men and women for all time. . ."
