I’m not much of a fan of Chuck Schumer (as everyone probably knows), but I think he did something clever here:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is planning to push for a provision in the next coronavirus package that would stop President Donald Trump from putting his name on any additional stimulus checks.
The so-called “No PR Act” would prohibit the use of federal dollars toward any material that promotes Trump or Vice President Mike Pence’s names or signatures.
“President Trump unfortunately appears to see the pandemic as just another opportunity to promote his own political interests,” the New York Democrat said in a statement. “The No PR Act puts an end to the president’s exploitation of taxpayer money for promotional material that only benefits his re-election campaign.”
It would take some brass for Lord Damp Nut to veto this legislation. I think that even though all of this BS is silly politics, forcing his “signature” on the checks (and delaying the stimulus by literally weeks to get the checks updated) just to stroke his fragile ego was even sillier politics.
