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.

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

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.

'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."

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.

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.

Yeah, but to a lot of people, 'Sloppy Joe' has very positive connotations.  Warm, delicious comfort food.  Happiness all the way around.

Now, when I think of *Trump*, I think of a Shiatburger, and I lose my appetite.

/And now I'm remembering that I have a pound of ground venison in the freezer, and a can of Manwich sauce, and a pack of buns.
//Venison makes *such* good sloppy joes!  Much less greasy than beef.  And with some sharp cheddar cheese on top...

Trump is correct. Hillary Clinton was the most competent and experienced person to ever run for the office. GOP propaganda made her actual name into a negative slur. He won the communities he needed to, thanks to that.

I had not been keeping up and I had previously been unimpressed with Trump's use of "Sleepy Joe". It really never motivated me, so I was still planning on voting for Biden. His pivot to "Creepy Joe" and "Corrupt Joe" intrigues me somewhat, but I would really like to hear something more creative and unless I do I think that I am going to remain on the fence.

Contrary to the article, Trump has never been good at nicknames, because he's dumb and has the vocabulary of an 8-year-old. No nickname Trump has ever come up with comes close to "fartblossom," ffs. That's quality nicknaming right there.

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.
