Trump already cooking up new nicknames for 2020 rivals

President Trump’s campaign team is hard at work on a new crop of nicknames with which to torment his 2020 rivals, we’re told.

While 2016’s “Lyin’ Ted,” “Lil Marco” and “Crooked Hillary” — the names he bestowed on rival presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton — appeared to be off-the-cuff feats of casual bullying, we’re told campaign operatives are busily workshopping punchy names for potential front-runners for the next White House race.

And insiders said that they’re already preparing to take on Joe Biden, who said he’ll decide by January whether he’ll run.

We’re told the current favorite for the former veep is “Creepy Joe” — a reference to Biden’s supposed habit of touching and kissing strangers and staffers alike.

We’re told Team Trump settled on that title a couple of months ago — and, sure enough, Trump tried out the name at a Nevada rally in October.

He told the crowd that he called Biden “1 Percent,” referring to what Trump claimed was Biden’s lack of support in previous presidential bids.

“He never had more than 1 percent. So we call him either Sleepy Joe Biden or 1 Percent,” he said. He asked the crowd, “Which is better?”

The president then suggested that an audience member had shouted out “Creepy Joe” as a possibility.

It’s been a popular go-to for online critics of Biden. In September, Donald Trump Jr. used the same moniker while retweeting dubious Infowars provocateur Paul Joseph Watson.

“We are all used to Creepy Joe saying stupid stuff but this is too far even for him,” wrote Don Jr., linking to a story that alleged Biden had called Trump supporters “dregs of society.”

A Trump rep didn’t get back to us.
