House Democrats have introduced a bill that would ban President Donald Trump from being buried in Arlington National Cemetery, as well as having his name placed on federal buildings or having any “symbol, monument, or statue commemorating” him.
The move has faced widespread criticism for showcasing Democrats’ obsession with President Trump, who is no longer in office, at a time when tens of millions of Americans are without power and financially destitute under President Joe Biden.
The farcical bill, dubbed the “No Glory For Hate Act,” would apply the restrictions to “twice impeached former Presidents,” an extremely specific description that only applies to former President Donald Trump.
Both Democrat-led impeachment attempts against President Trump – one attempted months after he left the office – have failed in spectacular fashion and never came close to succeeding.
“Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no Federal funds or other Federal financial assistance may be provided to a State, political subdivision thereof, or entity if any such funds or financial assistance will be used for the benefit of any building, land, structure, installation, or any other property that bears the name, or is named or designated in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached,” the bill reads.
Among the restrictions already listed, the bill would also prevent President Trump from having free mailing privileges, as is customary with former presidents.
The amount of inane details in the bill related to villifying President Trump is staggering.
Bill sponsor Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) pontificated in a statement, “Even though Trump is no longer in office, he should still be held accountable for his actions and the taxpayers should not foot the bill for his future actions. I can’t imagine sending students in Southern California — or anywhere in America — to a school named in honor of a traitorous president.”
The legislation has been roundly mocked for its naked and pointless partisanship during a period of American crisis.
