PETTY! Democrats Sneak Trump Insults Into Names Of Proposed Legislation

Congressional Democrats are lashing out at President Trump in a range of ways, and one particularly petty and spiteful example is their use of proposed legislation to insult and attack our president.

The Business Insider reports:

If Mike Quigley has his way, the word “covfefe” will be codified in federal law. 

This week, the Illinois congressman introduced the COVFEFE Act, which would require each one of President Donald Trump’s tweets — even the infamous typo that gave the bill its name — to be documented in national archives alongside other presidential records.

Technically, this “covfefe” actually stands for something — the “Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement” Act. And it’s part of a long-running tradition of politicians titling their legislation with snappy, topical acronyms.

But in the era of Trump, bill-naming has taken an interesting turn, with Democrats using the precious real estate atop their legislation to throw jabs at the president.

There’s the MAR-A-LAGO Act — or, officially speaking, the Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act, another Quigley-sponsored bill that references Trump’s private resort in Florida.

There’s Rep. Ted Lieu’s SWAMP Act, which aimed to “Stop Waste And Misuse by the President,” while slyly nodding at Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” campaign mantra.

There’s the RIGGED Act, which stands for “Relatives in Government Getting Employment Dishonorably.”

While legislation often contains compelling acronyms, these personal attacks on a sitting president go far beyond that tradition.
