Trump Unveils New Nickname For Biden — And It’s Killer
President Trump is the master of nicknames.
Trump calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “Pocahontas” for her false claims that’s she’s Native American. He calls Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the Connecticut Democrat who falsely claimed to have fought in the Vietnam War, “Da Nang Dick.” Jeb Bush was, of course, “Low Energy Jeb.” Then there’s “Crooked Hillary,” “Lyin’ Leakin’ James Comey,” “Jeff Flakey,” “Head Clown Chuck Schumer,” and “Mad Maxine Waters.”
He’s called Joe Biden, the former vice president who is now atop polls in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, “Low I.Q. Joe.” And more recently, he’s dubbed Biden “Sleepy Joe.”
But in the midst of a tweetfest on Friday, Trump finally arrived at the perfect nickname for Biden: SleepyCreepy Joe.
“Looks to me like it’s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Biden, of course, was accused by at least nine women of inappropriate touching. In the first case, Lucy Flores, a Democrat and former candidate for lieutenant governor in Nevada, said Biden groped her from behind and smelled her hair. A slew of women followed with their own tales of unwanted touching.
Since the reports, the moniker “Creepy Joe” has been making the rounds. A top political action committee that supports Trump last month even released a TV spot titled “Creepy Joe Biden.”
The 60-second ad opens with shots of dimly lit homes, then faces of children who appear to be watching something, perhaps TV.
Then it cuts to a shot of Flores telling CNN host Jake Tapper about her creepy interaction with the former vice president, who appeared with her at a campaign event in 2014.
“It happened all so suddenly, very unexpectedly, out of nowhere,” she says. “I feel Joe Biden put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind, lean in, smell my hair and then plant a slow kiss on the top of my head.” As she recounts the incident, shots of Biden doing the same thing with other women and even children play on the screen, again as children appear to be watching.
But the new nickname “SleepyCreepy Joe” brings it all together. And like most Trump nicknames, this one is likely to stick.
