UTAH: GOP Reps Propose Naming Highway For Trump, Gay Dem Counters With “Stormy Daniels Rampway”

The Washington Post reports:

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.

State Sen. Jim Dabakis (D) responded with his own renaming proposal: If the House passes the bill, then Dabakis threatened to attach an amendment in the Senate that would rename the frontage road that runs along the would-be Donald J. Trump Utah National Parks Highway. Dabakis will seek to call it the “Stormy Daniels Rampway,” named for the former porn star to whom Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, reportedly paid $130,000 to keep quiet about her relationship with Trump.

Dabakis, the co-founder of Equality Utah, is the only openly gay member of the Utah legislature.

Last month he announced his retirement from the Senate, but declined to say if he’ll seek another office.
