The Arid Vocabulary of Donald J. Trump

Donald Trump has labored mightily and come up with the proper label for suicide bombers: "losers."

Trump knows from long experience that if you label your enemy correctly, you have taken care of that enemy. Boom. Done.

For the record, here are the people/things that Trump has called losers (via the wonderful GH):
Barack Obama, John McCain, Cher, Chuck Todd, George Will, Jay Leno, Jeb Bush, John Heilemann, Jon Stewart, Seth Meyers, Mark Cuban, Alex Pareene, Alex Salmond, Ana Navarro, Angelo Carusone, Arianna Huffington, Bill Maher, Bill Moyers, Brian Williams, Charles Krauthammer, Chris Cillizza, Rosie O’Donnell, Chris Jackson, Chris Moody, Chuck Hagel, Danny Zuker, David Cameron, David Milne, Eric Schneiderman, Frank Lutz, Gavin Rossdale, Graydon Carter, Hisham Elzanaty, Jaqueline Goldberg, Jonah Goldberg, Karl Rove, Lawrence O’Donnell, Lord Sugar, Michael Forbes, Michelle Malkin, Mike Tollin, New York Daily News, Salon
Or take a look at the remarkable list of Trump losers that Philip Bump compiled way back in 2015.

Trump is an idiot and has no vocabulary, largely due to his obviously low IQ. With him, most things are "great" or "amazing" or "fantastic." Hearing promotions recently for a documentary about JFK with excerpts from speeches in which President Kennedy's intellect is so transparent, I was struck by the staggering contrast between the type of leadership this country used to have compared to what it has now. Trump's name-calling is juvenile, but really even below the level of middle school children. What a catastrophe.

JFK had excellent speechwriters as well as ghost writers for his books.
