Trump calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “Pocahontas” for her debunked claims that’s she’s Native American. He calls Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the Connecticut Democrat who falsely claimed to have fought in the Vietnam War, “Da Nang Dick.” Jeb Bush was, of course, “Low Energy Jeb.” Then there’s “Crooked Hillary,” “Lyin’ Leakin’ James Comey,” “Jeff Flakey,” “Head Clown Chuck Schumer,” and “Mad Maxine Waters.”
So Biden jumping into the nickname game is a big gamble.
The former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee revealed Monday that he’s calling Trump “President Tweety.”
“Trump is out there tweeting again this morning. I call him ‘President Tweety,'” Biden said during a speech to the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Victory Fund. Biden noted that Trump wrote on Twitter, “reopen the country,” then said: “How are we supposed to do that if you’re sitting on the money small businesses need? Stop tweeting about it. Get the money out to Main Street. It’s there. It’s been passed.”
Biden has acknowledged that President Trump is a master at giving nicknames but said in the same interview that he is excited to get on stage with the President.
