Those waters around Florida are shark infested, so maybe his name fit.

Small brained and vicious is pretty much a match.

"Seaweed blob visible from space takes aim at Florida Gulf coast..."

Coincidence? I think NOT!

(OK, that was from a year ago, but...)

There is a swamp 1/2 down the road from me that we call the ---- Hole due to the stink.

I propose naming that after him.

A backwoods cesspit - like Trump, they've been allowed to continue until inoperative - that's the ticket.

The idea is preposterous.

This sound more like Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) is trying to score some brownie points on the outside chance Trump is able to lie, cheat, and otherwise weasel his way back in the Oval Office.

Or it could be one of Trump's hairbrained ideas with Rep Steube (R-FL) as his stooge.

Ya suppose Steubed is related in some way to MTG?

I thought we had to wait until someone was dead before we started naming public edifices and such after them?

Think ahead. Knowing Trump, he just wants to start charging a fee to use "his" waterways.

@#10 ... he just wants to start charging a fee to use "his" waterways. ...

Fmr Pres Trump likes to put his name on properties, selling his name similar to a McDonald's franchise? But how many properties does he actually own the entire property?

Name the landfills after him...

That's a very comprehensive review of Trump-s non-ownership of properties in New York City.

The summary at the end of the link says it all:

It turns out that of the many Trump-branded or -associated properties, he appears to own just a few units or portions of a building, such as at Trump Tower. In most other cases, Trump's name on a building represents a licensing agreement, a condition of sale, or the Trump Organization's role as property manager. Trump's only equity in many of "his" buildings appears limited to a handful of unsold apartments or common spaces " if any at all. In effect, his footprint in New York has already been shrinking for years, and James's lawsuit, while it may never come to fruition, has laid that bare."

LOL - Laid bare indeed.

Trump actually owns what amounts to "squat" by other NYC real estate developers. But he does have a revenue stream which is part of Trump Org lifeblood. I'll be happy if Letitia James can pull the plug on that, as well as any other out-of-state assets or income stream to which Trump or Trump Org lays claim.

Cut off the money and you cut off the business end of the snake.

...cut off the business end of the snake.

I think the business end of the Lewzer Org is now the Executive Branch. Sparkle Pony is probably hiding the rest of it.

"Sparkle Pony is probably hiding the rest of it."

Could be but the Attorney General of New York has a couple monitors watching every penny that comes and goes at Trump Org. So far, Ivanka has managed to keep her hands clean in the case against Trump Org. I'd be surprised if she set herself up to get caught hiding assets now.

She seems to be smarter than her two brothers in that respect.

Be assured when a Dems lips are moving, lies and falsities are being emitted. They've specialized in using political power to make things worse for citizens.

Having succeeded in the effort to rename National Airport in DC after ronnie raygun, I am sure they aspire to other strategically important, nationally impacting and great feats of useless legislative activity. (Cripes, why bother trying to do anything of true value?) I suppose if they managed to get the coastal waters renamed after 34-counts convicted felon tfg, they could then move on to trying to kill any conservation or sustainable management efforts in that zone, in the effort to turn it into the sewer they would name it after?
