People like these, a state legislator from Utah.

Some Republican lawmakers in Utah are so pleased with President Trump’s decision to shrink two Utah national monuments that they want to honor him with his own road, the “Donald J. Trump Utah National Parks Highway.”

The proposal would put the Trump brand on the existing Utah National Parks Highway, 631 miles of scenic roads through southern Utah’s stunningly beautiful canyons, a stretch that includes Zion National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Canyonlands National Park. It was written by Republican Rep. Mike Noel and passed out of the House Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Standing Committee on a party-line vote Monday.

Republicans praised Trump for shrinking the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in December, opening them up for oil, gas and coal mining potential. Noel said Trump wasn’t getting enough credit for his efforts. Passing this proposal, he said, was a chance to give it to him.
A Democratic legislator wanted to attach an amendment that the entrance to the highway be named Stormy Daniels rampway. Did not know that people from Utah had a sense of humor.

Spent last week in Utah (SLC) on business. Beautiful setting. Didn’t see a single MAGA hat, lol. Can recommend The Copper Onion, nice restaurant. Ruth’s Diner is highly overrated.

The loud Trumpie who sits a couple of corrals away from me at work is having an “in depth” discussion with another worker (who I have a nodding acquaintance with) about “The Bachelor”, a completely moronic “reality” show. It’s gone on for at least three hours now. The horror! This is the intellectual level of the typical Trumpie, sadly.

Earlier he was all pumped about how Donnie was about to do what no one else has been able to do, get North Korea to give up its nukes! (As if).

I just put on the headphones and tune the idiot out. Imagine having to work next to Whell!

This is getting worse and worse by the day for the Dotard. No idea as to what this means or where this is going other than Stormy looking for a book deal or better yet a made for TV movie deal with her in the lead?

The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles alleges that President Trump, then the Republican presidential nominee, never approved a $130,000 settlement arranged by his personal attorney, making it invalid.
This is a developing story. It will be updated.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson privately warned senior trade officials on Tuesday that President Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum could endanger the U.S. national security relationship with allies, according to five people familiar with the meeting.

And Trump is doing this under an exception in the law that allows him to do so in the name of national security.

@tedlieu
Hush agreement & side letter attached to Stormy Daniels' filing essentially shows coordination between @realDonaldTrump, Cohen & Daniels. That means the $130k payment from Cohen to Daniels to silence her during the campaign violated federal election law. Penalty is 5 year felony.

Which is why lawyer has always said Trump not in loop. BUT if he wasn't in the loop, there was no valid agreement, and D. Storm can publish.

Pres. in lovely dilemma here.

Uh, yeh. And that's exactly how it should be. Trump enablers, apologists and fanboys should indeed be ridiculed at every opportunity. They richly deserve it.
