Notable Never Trump congressman Will Hurd attacked President Donald Trump for his allegedly “doctored” video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
A video that President Donald Trump recently shared on social media has been making waves during the past few days. Critics argued that the video was digitally modified in order to make Pelosi appear to be impaired while giving a speech.
Trump shared a Fox news video from “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that showed numerous verbal pauses from the House Speaker.
Hurd commented on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “You shouldn’t disseminate information that you know is ultimately doctored.”
The Texas congressman argued that “this is going to escalate this debate and this fight.”
He added that “We have old laws to decide how you handle disinformation” and that America has “leaders that don’t understand how this technology can be used in the future.”
Hurd concluded with the following:
“This goes back into this whole conversation around disinformation and how are we dealing with it, and it’s not just the government alone. It’s not just the social media companies. It’s also the media, academia involved in trying to do this.”
Hurd has built a track record in the House for siding with the establishment on issues like universal gun registration and his vote to end the government shutdown without funding President Trump’s border wall. Before Trump was elected, Hurd was a strong opponent of Trump saying that “Trump should step aside for “a true conservative” to step in.”
For that reason, it is no surprise why Hurd is attacking Trump at the moment.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
