Now that Donald Trump is finally the presumptive GOP nominee, he has shifted all his focus to attacking presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. This week, he saddled the former Secretary of State with a new nickname that is sure to leave her feeling both degraded and humiliated.
The latest person to be saddled with a nickname from Trump is his likely opponent in the general election, scandal-plagued presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, now dubbed “Crooked Hillary.”
According to The New York Times, or the “Failing New York Times” as Trump calls them, his nickname for Hillary has gained traction and appears to have stuck, meaning we will likely be hearing it plenty up through election day.
“I feel it, it’s an instinct,” Trump said in a phone interview, discussing some of the other successful nicknames he has saddled opponents with, such as “Lyin’ Ted,” “Liddle Marco,” and of course, “Low Energy Jeb.” As to “Crooked Hillary,” Trump said, “It works, it flows.”
Crooked Hillary just can’t close the deal with Bernie. It will be the same way with ISIS, and China on trade, and Mexico at the border. Bad!

The journalist recalled a prior interview with Trump earlier in the campaign season in which the billionaire businessman was asked if he ever used focus groups to test and approve his messaging.
With a smirk Trump replied, “I do focus groups — right here,” pointing to his head.
We applaud Trump for continuing to humiliate Hillary every chance he gets!
