Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has emerged with a unique nickname for US president Donald Trump.
As it appears, Biden came up with the moniker after noticing how much Trump tweets. “Trump is out there tweeting again. I call him ‘President Tweety’!” he revealed in a video message shared online last Monday, which was recorded during his speech at the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Victory Fund.
Biden—known as ‘Sleepy Joe’ to Trump—was initially “resistant” in giving nicknames, but he seemed to have a change of heart. In an interview posted to Vanity Fair, Biden commented that the president’s use of nicknames was skillful and called him a “master at laying nicknames on people.”
“I can hardly wait to get onto the stage with Trump. I’m really resisting giving a nickname to the president,” he continued.
The former vice president made the comment after Trump’s belated response to providing relief aid to businesses hurt from the coronavirus pandemic.
“How are we supposed to do that if you’re sitting on the money small businesses need in order to stay alive? Stop tweeting about it. Get the money out to Main Street now,” Biden said.

Me: insulting nicknames are a pathetic way of engaging in public debate and demeaning to democracy itself
Also me: ha! #PresidentTweety that’s funny
