I need Trump to really lean into this and start calling him “Captain Calzone”.


The Real Reason Trump Is Calling DeSantis ‘Meatball Ron’


For Donald Trump, the first step is always to label his victim. Indeed, assigning a good bad nickname appears to be a sine qua non in the Trump playbook. Once he gets that part right, the job is half-done.


For example, “Crazy Joe” (which gave way to the superior “Sleepy Joe”) never resonated the way “Crooked Hillary” (or Lyin’ Ted, “Low Energy Jeb,” and Lil’ Marco) did. And now that “Meatball Ron” has become his leading moniker for Ron DeSantis, Trump might have landed on another keeper.


Back in 2016, when Trump first started gaining traction, a few outlets dug into why his nicknames were working. Some people saw it primarily as a symptom of the coarsening of discourse and dirty political fighting he reveled in; but others spotted an evil genius at work.


One theory argued that our attention spans are getting shorter and shorter, and Trump understood how to succinctly capture the most negative framing of a person’s fundamental nature.


“Trump realizes campaigns, especially for president, aren’t about issues—they’re all about personalities, especially for independent voters,” Brad Bannon, a Democratic strategist, told Roll Call. Evan Siegfried, a Republican strategist, concurred, saying, “The bottom line is: Trump’s nicknames stick.”


The good news for DeSantis is that this specific technique is not currently being used on him (stay tuned for “Groomin’ Ron”). But what does “meatball” even mean? The New York Times calls it “an apparent dig at [DeSantis’s] appearance,” which I take to suggest a shorter, pudgier frame—while hinting at a lock of social grace. But “meatball” is also a slur against Italian-Americans (all eight of DeSantis’ great-grandparents came here from Italy).

How about we give Donald Trump a nickname that sticks, something like Treasonous Trump?

Trump is going to knock out the entire GOP field over Social Security and Medicare cuts. 

And then Trump is going to act like he didn't propose cutting Medicare or Social Security either in his FY19, FY20, and FY21 budgets.

Can't wait to see what nickname Trump gives Nimrata. It's gonna be way more racist than meatball methinks. 




I'm waiting for the GQP reaction when they realize her name is Nimrata & she's of Indian descent.

Too hard for Trump to pronounce. It will be something dumb like Nimrod Nikki. Or he will say she did something something something bad every speech and call her Naughty Nikki.
