Since descending the golden escalator in 2015, former President Donald Trump has become known for labeling his political opponents with nicknames… and he just did it again.
Trump, once again a presidential candidate, unveiled the new nickname two days after the launch of President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.

“This could be maybe the most important part of what I’m going to say because this is going to be a major announcement,” Trump said. “He’ll be known from now on as ‘Crooked Joe Biden.'”
Trump was likely referring to the House Oversight Committee’s investigation in First Son Hunter Biden and his finances.
Previously, Trump was using the name “Crooked” for former State Secretary Hillary Clinton, his opponent in 2016’s presidential race. “As you know, I’ve done very well against Crooked Hillary Clinton,” Trump said at the same rally.
However, Trump also announced the retirement of the nickname “Crooked Hillary.”
“I will be retiring the name ‘Crooked’ from Hillary Clinton and her moniker. And I’m gonna give her a new name. I don’t know, like maybe Lovely Hillary or Beautiful Hillary. But I’m going to retire the name “Crooked” so that we can use the name for Joe Biden,” Trump said Thursday at a rally in New Hampshire.
“You would think that Hillary would be very happy today. She’s out there someplace celebrating, because there’s never been anyone in the history of American politics so crooked or dishonest as Joe Biden, and the press absolutely refuses to report it.”
Trump has previously called his rival “Sleepy Joe.” He also toyed with other nicknames, like “Slow Joe” and “Quid Pro Joe.” Since then, Trump has also modified “Sleepy Joe” into “SleepyCreepy Joe,” likely a reference to viral photos of Biden smelling women’s hair.
In fact, Wikipedia has been compiling a list of Trump’s nicknames, and it’s listed more nicknames for Biden than for anyone else.
“With your vote on Nov. 5, 2024, we’re going to crush Joe Biden,” Trump told the audience. “The choice in this election is now between strength and weakness.”

Speaking at a hotel in the Granite State, Trump also showcased his poll numbers, and he mused about skipping primary debates.
