Dems are trying to keep federal funding from being used to name anything after a "twice impeached" president.

The Democratic Party doesn't know how to get over Donald Trump.

The Trump Derangement Syndrome continues this week with H.R. 484, a resolution introduced by Dems in the House to prohibit federal funding from being used to name anything after a "twice impeached" president, including monuments, statues, buildings, or land.

Think of all the various monuments, airports, parks, schools, roads, and aircraft carriers are named after former presidents (the ones we haven't yet cancelled).

This bill, introduced by Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-CA) would presumably keep Trump's name off of any of these things.

"No Federal funds may be used to create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act," says the bill, "Or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property."

I mean, sure, the bill doesn't technically mention Trump's name, but the singular focus on a "twice impeached" president has only one person on the planet in mind.

"We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President," said Sánchez. "This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate – not a building, statue, or even a park bench."

The bill would also prohibit Trump from a state burial in Arlington National Cemetery, which is okay, because I'm pretty sure Trump is going to do something way cooler and crazier for his funeral. In fact, if you banned him from Earth entirely, he'd probably launch himself in a cryostasis pod to Mars until the technology exists to bring him back.

4D chess all the way to the end.
