‘Sloppy Steve Bannon’

In a tweet criticizing author Michael Wolff’s tell-all book about Trump’s White House, the president lashed out at his former campaign chief and top White House adviser, Steve Bannon, who was interviewed by Wolff for the book. 

“Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job,” Trump tweeted in January. “Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!”

‘Senator Dicky Durbin’

Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, after reports surfaced that the president referred to Haiti and some African nations as “s—hole countries” during a bipartisan White House meeting on immigration reform, which included a discussion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. 

After the meeting, Durbin accused Trump of saying “things that were hate-filled, vile and racist.”

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our military,” Trump wrote in a January tweet.

 

‘Little Adam Schiff’

Trump has long targeted the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, who will likely lead the committee in the new Congress. 

“Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper!” Trump wrote in February. “Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!”

He elaborated on that insult in November, calling the congressman “little Adam Schitt” in another tweet.
