Hillary Tries Out A Nickname For Trump: “The Presumptuous Nominee”

I wonder how many hours and meetings were put into this effort? You know she doesn’t do off script and in the moment very well

(ABC) Donald Trump has been known to assign nicknames to his rival presidential candidates. But now it appears he’s getting a taste of his own medicine — from Hillary Clinton.

During a campaign event in Oakland, California, on Friday at La Escuelita Elementary School, the Democratic presidential front-runner prescribed a new name for the man who is being called the Republican presumptive nominee: The “presumptuous nominee.”

“Their presumptive nominee, otherwise called their presumptuous nominee,” Clinton told the crowd to laughter, referring to the Republicans, “has made it really clear he basically said wages are too high in America. And that’s why he doesn’t think we need to raise the minimum wage. And I gotta tell you I ask myself all the time, who he is talking to?”

I betting the majority had to whip out their phones and look the word up. They knew it was supposed to be snarky, but, that’s about it. Just for the record, Merriam-Webster defines it as “too confident especially in a way that is rude : done or made without permission, right, or good reason.”

Trump, meanwhile, refers to Clinton as “Crooked Hillary.” He also had nicknames for his former rivals: “Lyin’ Ted” for Ted Cruz, “Little Marco” for Marco Rubio, and Jeb “Low Energy” Bush.

Regardless of your opinion or support (or lack thereof) of Donald Trump, which nickname will work better? Which one will stick? Because Trump will use the “crooked Hillary” name on a constant basis. It flows easily. It is easily understood. It leads to conversation regarding her crookedness. “Presumptuous nominee” leads to looks of confusion.

And yeah, yeah, I know, the early electoral maps are not trending Trump. We have a long way to go to November.

    Granted, ridicule needs to be understood to be effective, but most potential Clinton voters understand the meaning of “presumptuous” even if most Trump supporters do not. Face it, no PC (Pirate Conservative) voters are going to vote for a Democrat regardless of who the Republicans trot out, or what names he’s called. David Duke could still get 30% of Republican voters, and he’s as qualified as Big Orange.

    She could call Trump, “Big Orange”, “Bankrupter in Chief”, “Hair Do? More Like, Hair Don’t!”, “Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow”, “The Philanderer in Chief”, “Stubby McShorthose”, “Panderer in Chief”, “Bad Idea”, “Wallbuilder”, “The Birther in Chief”, “Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho”, “President End of America”, “Crooked Donald”, “Mr. Universe”, “Fuckface Von Clownstick”, “Donald McDonald”, “Fishlips”, “Nuclear War”, “Lowest Common Denominator”, “Combover”, “Default”, “Bangs”, etc

    Granted, none as sophisticated as the 5th grade literacy practiced by The Combover.

    Trump (and the unfortunate GOP) are like the dog that finally caught the chased car. Now what?? He just wanted to burnish his sinking, stinking company brand, but the idiocratic Republican electorate made him their nominee! Now what!!

    I bet Crooked Hillary’s machine forgot to do any opposition research on Baron Von Combover, so he’ll sail through the campaign without a scratch.

    Are there enough angry white men in America to elect him? We’ll see!

    A friend in Vancouver BC tells me Canadians are preparing for the flood of political refugees at their southern border. Maybe they should build a wall to keep violence prone Americans out!

    If you go, just stay out of Alberta, it’s on fire!

    Lady Trump clutches her pearls at any slight!

    Best name calling is not going to be the winning issue in 2016 although the GOP might want it to be
    Predictwise has dropped Trump down to a 22% chance of winning his lowest since Cruz dropped out
    That number is spot on also for people willing to wager actual money on electronic markets here in thevusa such as Iowa Electroniv Market ( run by University of Iowa)

    “A friend tells me the Canadians are preparing for a flood of political refugees at their southern border.” Wait a minute-you mean these liberals aren’t going to flee to Mexico but go to Canada instead? They must be closet racists. “Are there enough angry white men in America to elect him?” Don’t know. Are there enough stupid minorities to elect her?

  5. Jeffery says:

    White men ARE a minority.

    70% of women dislike Trump.

    I like “Stubby” Trump because it references his tiny fingers and short penis. Thanks, Marco!

    Funny how in my area all of the women are for Trump. Maybe the polls are terribly wrong. After all, women can think just as well as men and know that Hillary is totally wrong for any office.
