Donald Trump is perhaps best known for slapping derisive nicknames on political enemies. Yet a few days ago, with a perfect opportunity to drop one on Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, Trump seemed to reach for a nickname only to come up empty.
“Nancy Pelosi, or Nancy, as I call her, doesn’t want to hear the truth,” said Trump on Wednesday in comments reported by CNN’s Ryan Struyk.
Could it be Trump is afraid to reach into his bag of slights when it comes to Nancy D’Alesandro Pelosi?
No. Trump has in the past hit Pelosi with put-downs such as “High Tax, High Crime Nancy Pelosi” and “MS-13 Lover Nancy Pelosi.”
So why put the brakes on his moniker-machine-of-mean now? Could it be Trump has more respect (fear) for Pelosi considering she is now Speaker of the House … a powerful woman who can take him down through impeachment proceedings?
For some fun, here is a list of nicknames Trump has come up with for some of his foes:
Crooked Hillary (Hillary Clinton)
Cheatin’ Obama (Barack Obama)
Mr. Magoo (Jeff Sessions)
Little Adam Schitt (Adam Schiff)
Low IQ Maxine Waters
Crazy Jim (Jim Acosta)
Sneaky Dianne (Dianne Feinstein)
Crazy Bernie (Bernie Sanders)
Cryin’ Chuck / Fake Tears Chuck Schumer
Low Energy Jeb Bush
Little Marco (Marco Rubio)
Little George Stephanopoulos
Lyin’ Ted (Ted Cruz)
Pocahontas / Goofy Elizabeth Warren
Little Rocket Man (Kim Jong Un)
Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd
Wacky (Frederica Wilson)
Liberal Puppet Jones (Doug Jones)
Wacky Omarosa (Omarosa Manigault Newman)
Maybe Donald Trump is not such a loose cannon after all? Maybe he has enough sense to realize how precarious his situation is and how much power Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds over him? Maybe he is not a total moron just a half-wit?
