Trump is so bad at this, that he hasn't hit on "Sloppy Joe" yet.

That's low hanging fruit.

Coach:  Nicknames.

I take issue with TFA's headline.

Mean Nicknames Was Trump's Only Legit Skill, and Now He's Bad at That, Too

No, he's always been terrible at it. They don't rhyme, there's no alliteration or play on other phrases. They're random and nonsensical.

Marcus Aurelius: Trump is so bad at this, that he hasn't hit on "Sloppy Joe" yet.


That would have easily been his best one, to the point where I'd never believe he came up with it himself.

Too much cross branding. Hearing that just makes me hungry for Sloppy Joe.

Who doesn't love Sloppy Joe? What kind of monster are you? You're Trump. He only likes hamberders.

'Sleepy Joe' ... 'Swampy Joe' or 'Creepy Joe,'" ... The president has settled, at least momentarily, on "Corrupt Joe."

Soon there will be "Uncontrolled Covid Joe," "Hydroxychloroquine Joe," "Russian Bounty Joe," "How could I lose TEXAS Joe," and "What do you mean I'm under arrest I'm the President Joe."

He's always been bad at it... low energy Jeb, little Marco Rubio, etc.  Seriously, an 8 year old can think of better insults than Trump.
 
2020-06-30 12:28:16 PM  
The worst thing he could call somebody at this point would be "Trump"

That's just too mean, though.
 
2020-06-30 12:28:37 PM  
Perhaps he should practice calling Mr. Biden "sir."
He'll want that when he comes begging for a pardon.

Hopefully he has to call him "President-elect Biden" and "Mr. President" in the future.

Mmmm, sloppy joes. Now I'm hungry dammit. Well I could offer a better one Slippy "The Toad" Joe. Granted how many people even remember Star Fox nowadays?

Political theater has a ceiling of support, and Trump is finding it. Meanwhile, slightly over half of American voters are looking for substance during a crisis. Hopefully it will be enough.

I dunno if he's "bad" at it. He uses the same three nicknames (sleepy/low-energy, corrupt/lyin', little/liddle) every time, and where the news used to lap that shiat up - "he's a pugilist!" - now they're suddenly noticing that it wasn't all that clever to begin with.

They're all "bad" at their jobs - and now they're telling on themselves in very different ways.

I would suggest "Mr. President-elect" and after January 20,2021 change it to "Mr. President"
 
2020-06-30 12:33:34 PM  
The description of his schoolyard nicknames as "brand equity" made me want to gnaw my own legs off.

That said, I would have gone with "Clueless Joe", but I'm not sure people would pick up the riff on "Shoeless Joe" Jackson.  The Black Sox were 100 years ago.  The movies about the Black Sox were thirty years ago.

You can tell his campaign is flailing.

Now they're running ads trying to tie him to China.

I like how the article describes trumps grade school ability fo using mean nick names as a "most feared" tactic. The reason it's most feared is because conservative media uses it for their "unbiased" reporting.

Someone needs to eliminate Fox News.

That's old news. They have been working that angle for a few weeks at least on the boards.

Trump needs new tricks to get anyone's attention. The mean name nonsense is sooo 2016.

He needs to draw mustaches on everyone with his magic SharpieTM

Sadly, where's the lie?  He's gotten this far explicitly because he's a vile, miserably rat fark; not in spite of it.

"By a 50-to-36 percent margin, the public agrees that he is a racist."

This really needed a follow-up question "and are you ok with that?"

Otherwise, it's hard to determine which responders were MAGA's and which were decent folk

I am not sure how it came about but some how in the past, but the  "Sloppy Joe" in our our household had a slight name change. It is now called the "Messy Joseph". Sometimes we do BBQ messy josephs and other times they are just hamberder (I just wanted to say that) with tobasco sauce, garlic, onions, a bit of horse radish, and some other seasonings. And the decision has been made........Messy Josephs tonight.

Earlier today I commented that Biden is running the perfect campaign right now. Dump's only weapon is bullying. Biden remaining silent he's not giving Trump any ammunition at all. Trump is going to hang himself with his own rope and Biden doesn't have to do s***. Though, come September ish Biden will need to start getting his message out and show people he actually has a plan to solve the unemployment the pandemic the racial tension getting us back in World standing etc. Fortunately, he should have plenty of money by then because he's not spending a whole lot right now. Groups like The Lincoln Project are doing that for him and it's not costing him a dime. Give Joe a little time. He's following Fark's advice and not interrupting his enemy while he's making a mistake. Or in Trump's case, mistakes
