An editor for conservative publication The Federalist called Washington, D.C. “the Third World” and the “District of Disgust” in a fiery essay arguing against the proposal to make the capital a state.

The House of Representatives recently passed bill that would make D.C. its own state but it’s unclear if it will clear the Senate.
