Trump hasn’t addressed the new nickname, and the White House didn’t respond to the Post request for comment. Maybe that’s because they were too busy doing the hard work of answering questions from Fox News’ new staff during the first press briefing in over a month.


From The Post:

The swiftness with which the hashtag took off marks yet another example of the president’s critics adopting his tactics. In the Trump era, political discourse has become increasingly characterized by public figures, including elected officials from both sides of the aisle, trading barbs on social media and lampooning each other whenever cameras are rolling. Calls for civility have been tossed aside in favor of a modified version of Michelle Obama’s famed, “When they go low, we go high” edict.

“When they go low, we kick them,” former Attorney General Eric Holder declared proudly in October last year.

In 2017, Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., offered a similar take on the former first lady’s words. “My view now is that when they go low, we fight back,” Lieu told the Los Angeles Times.

Conway, a prominent conservative attorney, is one person who hasn’t shied away from tangling with the president. Launching the nickname on Thursday was just Conway’s latest move in his ongoing public spat with his wife’s boss, which has often involved both parties resorting to ugly name-calling.


The Post notes that even prominent officials got in on the fun, “such as former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill and actress Mia Farrow jumped in to promote the moniker.”

As it reads in the Book of Petty, Chapter 3, Verse 12: “Thou must be willing to layeth in the bed stained with orange spray tan that thou has created.”
