I continued to call DCA "Washington National" or "National" airport. Even after my airline told us to use "Washington-Reagan Airport" in our PA announcements to passengers (or radio calls to ATC). But I never uttered the new name, even when right-wing co-pilots tried to pressure me into conforming.

And the Trump name should refer to the sewage, not the facility treating it.

But having it named after Trump? Ego alert! Being from the DC area, I am used to calling it Dulles or IAD for those who know its IATA code.

John Foster Dulles was a Republican anyway.

Maybe they can rename a sewage system or prison after Trump.

to have the worst outhouse in the world named after him.

Mabe "the worst toilet in Scotland", from the movie. "Trainspotting", but nothing else.

Those cowardly rethuglicans will do anything to suck-up to that deranged, putrified, soulless fuckwit. Just so he doesn't send an angry, hate-filled tweet, or truth, or whatever he does with those tiny, tiny hands of his.

The worst sack of shit in the world hasn't done a single thing to serve the American people, yet they want to start naming things after him? Bullshit!

Which is amazingly fitting.

Neo-Nazis use the number 88 as an abbreviation for the Nazi salute Heil Hitler. The letter H is eighth in the alphabet, whereby 88 becomes HH. Often, this number is associated with the number 14, e.g. 14/88, 14-88, or 1488; this number symbolizes the Fourteen Words coined by David Lane, a prominent white supremacist.

I can't imagine there would ever be enough votes to make this actually happen, would there? At least that's what I'm going to assume, unless I hear otherwise, for the sake of my sanity.
