Democrats Oppose Putting Donald Trump’s ‘Racist’ Name on D.C. Hotel

A pair of Democrat congressmen are demanding that the Washington, D.C., City Council prevent Donald Trump from putting his name on a new D.C. hotel because, they assert, the Trump name is now synonymous with “racist” and should be kept from the public eye.

In a letter to the Department of Interior and General Services Administration (GSA), Congressmen Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) and Tony Cárdenas (D, CA) say that Trump should not be allowed to have his name “prominently displayed” on the hotel set to open in 2016 at the Old Post Office building on Pennsylvania Avenue, only a few blocks from the White House.

In the letter, the pair reminds the GSA that the government has “a responsibility to ensure that public lands are welcoming places” and then points to Trump’s “insulting comments” as a reason to keep his name out of public view.

“Trump’s recent and repeated remarks disparaging women, Mexican-Americans, and other Latinos are hateful, divisive and completely inaccurate,” the letter states.

These two "Representatives" should tender their resignations immediately. They swore an oath to uphold the Constitution and they spit on the very first amendment.

1:24, I thought that the first amendment applies to them as well.

Dump Trump.

The amendment does apply to them, but it doesn't allow them to use the power of government to deny the use of the same amendment to others. The call to resign isn't because of what they are saying but because of their abuse of the power given to them.

You will never throw off the dim edge of lies when you don't stop to think things through.

Let us never forget that Democrat Robert Byrd, the well accomplished Senate bloviator, was an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK. West Virginia is covered with public works projects large and larger bearing the "great' man's name, yet nary a word is uttered about removing it. We are instead told how he grew to love his negro subjects, er constituents. You see Democrats grow, while all others are tarred with any perceived negative that can be dredged up extending back to the cradle.
