Democrats are showing their Resistance against Donald Trump in a truly creative but actually beneficial way. Even using Trump’s words against him.
In a report by Business Insider, Congressman Mike Quigley has introduced the Covfefe Act. Yes, the Covefefe Act. Inspired by Trump’s ‘misspelled’ tweet. According to the report, The act stands for “Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement” and 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.
Just brilliance at it’s best. There is also a MAR-A-LAGO Act — the Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act, also sponsored by Quigley bill and shades Trump’s private resort in Florida.
Quigley told the Business Insider through email that
“It took an astute and attention-grabbing acronym to highlight the real significance of this legislation, especially when dealing with a president that has a blatant disregard for open government and transparency.”
The Dems also created a SWAMP ACT which aimed to “Stop Waste And Misuse by the President,” while slyly nodding at Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” campaign mantra. The chief of staff for this act is Marc Cevasco, who said this about Trump,
“He’s one of the more outlandish presidents that we’ve had. It kind of makes sense that people will respond in that way.”
Way to go Democrats, shade Trump and actually putting order in the White House at the same damn time! Check more of the laws out here.
