Oh, so petty: California Democrats introduce bill to ban state employees from staying at Trump hotels

Democrats should just make it easy on themselves and pass legislation that makes it a crime for any state employee to be seen in a red state

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) Once more, California’s Democrats are showing the rest of the country just how petty and small they are with a new bill that would disallow state employees from staying at Trump-owned hotels on business trips.



As Fox News reported, the bill was introduced by by Democratic state Assemblyman Evan Low. It would ban all state agencies from spending any money at a Trump-owned hotel while employees traveled for work.

“Public officials, at any level, should not profit off the constituents that they were elected to serve and represent,” Low said in a statement. “No branch of government is above the Constitution, and this legislation will ensure that California taxpayers are not further exploited by Donald Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause.”

Except that two federal appeals courts have ruled that the president is not in violation of the “Emoluments Clause” (last year and again a few days ago).

Fox News adds:

While the text of the bill does not specifically mention Trump by name, the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the only president in U.S. history who also happens to be a hotel magnate. If passed, the ban would apply to state agencies, the legislature, the judicial council and the University of California and California State University systems. 

“This bill would prohibit a state agency, as defined, from paying, reimbursing an employee, providing a per diem allowance, or contracting for the cost of lodging, procuring a good or service, or any other expense at a lodging establishment where the owner, as specified, is the President of the United States,” the bill reads.

Trump hotels aren’t popular with California state workers anyway because the average nightly room rate exceeds the $90 per night that state employees are authorized to spend for hotel accommodations.

That alone makes the legislation pointless, but the fact that Low is introducing it anyway — and that it’s likely to pass — makes Democrats in the state, once again, look small-minded and vindictive.



This, on top of “travel restrictions” state Attorney General Xavier Becerra has placed for state employees on Texas, Alabama, South Dakota and Kentucky over their alleged “discrimination” against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. North Carolina, Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee were already on the list.

Never mind that it’s against federal law (and the Constitution) to discriminate against these Americans and has been for decades.

Bacerra and Democrats should just make it easy on themselves and pass legislation that makes it a crime for any state employee to be seen in a red state.

Like, when I go to Ebay, I’ll make sure NOT to buy anything from California.

Gooood. Stay away from my state. We don’t worship your money. Satanists and perverts worship money. We hate perverts from Pedofornia. I pray God Almighty sends you a massive earthquake, so I have beachfront views!

The only thing that could possibly make the “Dramacrats” look any more childish would be stomping their feet and holding their breath until they turn…. BLUE!

Would any hotel operator want bedbugs and cockroaches infesting their hotel?

Dear Petty small minded people,
Creating a law that targets a single individual is so constitutional of you.
Not sure which constitution though.

Well, the Pedofornians should stay at those chinesey owned Starwood hotel/motels. They’ve been approved for satanic abominations. Probably have alot of cornoa-aidsbola, turd burns and pecker tracks on those mattresses. Sleep well —dirtbags.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the left. Whatever they love must be made law, and whatever they hate must be outlawed.
Sadly, the leftist masses cannot see the forest for the trees. Dear liberals, when leftist/liberal/democrat/communist politicians have run out of conservative things to outlaw, and have exhausted every avenue to punish the “right”, they will set their sites on you. Dictators are never satisfied.
What a sad, miserable life these people lead. Their entire existence is predicated on exercising power over people they dislike.

Found a restaurant for all the Hollypedos and Political pedovores.

They serve human flesh. Site has been around for a couple of years. L.A. foodies can’t get enough of those kiddie back ribs.

*Soros-snopes has an article in there, but we know they farm hosecrap, and lies.

These demon-seeds are sick people. God needs to stomp ’em. Romper Stomp ’em.
