Never mind that. Who called him literally Hitler? I don't recall it on this forum.

This is not to say that I favor disparaging nicknames for political opponents.

Although I enjoy the clever wit humor in many of the nicknames, I think that the most effective nicknames politically would be ones that derive directly from Trump's own playbook and are most likely to rile him by undercutting his ego. Just "Loser" seems good.
I've been thinking for some time that this song was written for him

Not quite so clever or funny, but the sort that seem most accurate to me, are "Baby Trump" or "Toddler Trump." Maybe the "Orange Baby," or "Tantrum Don"

You know, when the best one can argue is that "the guy is not literally Hitler", that should be a cause for one to stop and reflect on their position.

Just sayin'.

Oh no.

I mean, it's a problem, sure. All things begin equal, I'd prefer a president who didn't do that. I'd prefer a president with a lot of qualities that are probably never going to happen.

You may not know this, but SCOTUS is kind of a big deal. I'm willing to put "badmouthing the US" on the table, as a trade-off for getting one or two justices on the bench.

You're looking for a name that will reinforce the impression you're trying to create.

It seems you're willing to accept a lot from Trump in order to get what you want politically. That's the problem. The fact he blatantly lies constantly is acceptable. The fact he treats women like pieces of meat and brags he can get away with it because he's a "celebrity" is acceptable. The fact he is a bully is acceptable. The fact he believes Putin over his own intelligence agencies is acceptable. The fact he is an extreme narcissist is acceptable (and please don't tell me he hasn't been diagnosed as an extreme narcissist). The fact he has alienated our closest foreign allies, while praising Kim Jung Un and Putin, is acceptable. The fact that he enjoys humiliating people is acceptable to you. The fact he encourages people to commit violence is acceptable to you. The fact he encourages bigotry and racism is acceptable to you. The fact he deliberately encourages divisiveness in the country is acceptable to you.

Exactly what would it take for you not to find him acceptable?

Just jumping into this thread now, so if this was brought up, apologies:

Some Presidents have bona fide and accepted nicknames or monikers. Some good, some snarky.

Reagan - The Gipper
Clinton - Slick Willy
Bush the 2nd - Dubya
Lincoln - Honest Abe
Ann Veal - HER?!
Ford - The Accidental President
Eisenhower - Ike

I like "The Illegitimate President" for Trump.
