One of the favorite tactics of the sick mind of Donald Trump has been to apply pejorative nick-names to whoever he perceives as a political adversary, without a hint of consideration of whether his adversary was a Democrat or a Republican: …crooked Hillary…sleepy Joe… sanctimonious DeSantis, this last one, his possible main rival for the nomination, as a Presidential candidate of the Republican party, for the 2024 Presidential election.

Now, I remember his tactics to destroy all adversaries, pre-candidates of the Republican party along with him, to the 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections. Most of them got a ‘clever’ and pejorative nick-name, courtesy of Donald.

That tactic seems to have worked pretty well at elections for him in the past. But, what he, and even some Republicans do not realize, is that even Republicans who voted for him before, know him better now. The whole country knows him better now. Fortunately.

The GOP Directive, is playing its Trump card excessively conservatively, in my opinion. The GOP has avoided confrontation with Trump until now, looking to the other side in all occasions his many gaffes were evident, and leaving the final decision of separating from him, to the general Convention of the GOP.

A secure way of conserving their seat, just in case, you never know…

But, American citizens have been lied to extensively by him for years now. He always repeats the same lies when he delivers a speech: “the “stolen” election; everything ‘was wonderful’ under his mandate; the country was never in such a strong shape then; every President before him, took ‘secret’ documents away”.

Thanks God, he seems to have stopped talking about ‘the wall’ now.

But, no one applied the same treatment of name-calling to him. Perhaps out of fear of the reprisals that he could generate. Or maybe because other candidates did not want to be perceived by the voters as lacking class.

Well, whatever the reasonimg was, it does not affect me. So, I challenged myself to find the ‘perfect’ nick-name for Donald. From now on, Donald Trump will be referred to, by me, as the malignant dumb.

Malignant, because I consider the Donald the more perfidious creature I was ever aware of.

Dumb, because in many respects, he is an ignorant, disguising his lack of talent and common sense, with money, he has not earned; with an army of lawyers, who saved his ass in many occasions, just to be thrown later under the bus by him; and with positions, he occupied because of birth (Trump Organization), or circumstances (the U.S.A. Presidency).

I really love to see how this malignant dumb specimen, with his gigantic ego, reacts, say, in public televised debates with other candidates, if/when other adversaries began to refer to him with a pejorative nickname like this.

He is definitely a bully of the worst class, who has lost the favor of most Americans.

Except the unruly minority of the MAGA members, of course.
