List of Trump Nicknames and Insults

A Running List of Donald Trump's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Nicknames

One of the most consistent aspects of the Trump era has been the president's use of often offensive and always overzealous nicknames. As we noted here six months ago, that bullying spirit is directed at anyone who gets in the way, one that brings down everything that the administration stands for to an almost unbelievably childish level. Not quite sure what we're referring to? Well, in order to show just how insane the whole thing really is, we've gone through all the Trump tweets and media appearances and come up with a list of what he's repeatedly called his least favourite people (and media outlets) over the past few years. Spoiler alert: judging by the latest addition — on Jan. 4, railing on former aide Steve Bannon as being "Sloppy Steve" — this trend shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Ahead, read through the full extent of the madness — and be sure to check back on this story, as we'll be updating as new nicknames are added to his lexicon.
