Trump’s Name-Calling

 

When we were young, we called people names.

“Poopy face.”

“Ree-tard.”

“Dummy.”

But then we grew up and we stopped calling people names.

Only some of us never quite grew up and never stopped calling people names.

Which leads us to…

Here comes a lot of hot air - but it's really great hot air, the best hot air.

Here comes a lot of hot air – but it’s really great hot air, the best hot air.

Donald Trump, of course.

The Donald likes calling people names.

LOVES calling people names.

Calls people names during interviews.

Calls people names in speeches.

Calls people names in tweets.

The man is a walking, talking, name-calling machine.

Seriously: he stood in front of an audience at a rally and called Ted Cruz a pussy.

What kind of person does that?

A bad person, that’s who.

The Curmudgeon had been considering writing a piece on Trump’s name-calling for about a month before he got to work, and his procrastination was richly rewarded: the New York Times, it turns out, put together an exhaustive, and exhausting, collection of the worst of Trump. You can find that collection here, but if you don’t want that much, The Curmudgeon is pleased to present highlights from that collection and other sources.

First, let’s look at some of the names Trump called his opponents for the Republican nomination:

You know Trump's scuffling to find new targets when he settles on Cher, of all people. Who's next - Betty White?

    Stooping to his level…Donald Trump, asshole.

  • Peaches Shimmerdeep  On June 2, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Have you seen Stephen Hawking’s comments on The Donald? Bright man.

  • Peaches Shimmerdeep  On June 2, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    Stephen Hawking, I mean. I’ve been wondering about the Wharton School and how good it really is since witnessing the spectacle that is The Donald. I expect they are none too proud.

    You have to wonder how bright Trump’s campaign manager can be if he thinks Hawking’s language was complex in any way. As for the Wharton thing, well, two observations: first, I understand that no one there remembers Trump (both faculty and students); and second, never underestimate how having a daddy who can pay the tuition bill without financial aid makes an ordinary student look extraordinary.
