President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign team is reportedly coming up with nicknames for opponents he may face in the presidential race and they appear to have settled on one for former Vice President Joe Biden.
The New York Post reports that "the current favorite for the former veep is 'Creepy Joe' — a reference to Biden’s supposed habit of touching and kissing strangers and staffers alike."
Trump has often used nicknames to brand political opponents — a tactic that has proven to be successful in the past, most notably with "Crooked" Hillary Clinton.
If the campaign decides to use "Creepy Joe" on Biden, the former vice president may have a hard time shaking the label as even left-wing media outlets have admitted he has a disturbing pattern of touching people:
- The Washington Post: “What are we going to do about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?”
- Daily Beast: “Dear Lord Would Joe Biden Be a Terrible Candidate for These Times”
- Huffington Post: “Joe Biden 2020 Is A Terrible Idea In A Post-Weinstein America”
- VICE: “Joe Biden Is the Last Person the Democrats Should Run in 2020”
