Since Donald Trump took his place in the Oval Office, American comedians and late night hosts have really used their creative minds to think up a multitude of hilariously insulting nicknames for him. For example, you can find evidence on social media of Trump being referred to as Adolf Twitler, Cheeto Benito, or Trumplethinskin, just to name a few.
However, one of the best Trumpian nicknames, shitgibbon, popped up on Twitter in June of 2016. The account responsible for the glorious phrase, “tiny fingered, Cheeto-faced, ferret wearing shitgibbon,” has since been suspended, but it wasn’t the only one to use the shitgibbon insult. In early 2017, state senator Daylin Leach tweeted a beauty that ended with “fascist, loofa-faced, shit-gibbon.” But where did these guys come by such an eloquent insult? Well, apparently, they got it from a British writer that coined the phrase to insult indie rock artists way back in the 80s and 90s. Oh, the Brits, forever bringing the coolest sounding insults.
And now that the Combover Con Artist is expected in London for a state visit on Friday, July 13th, the UK is busy preparing to greet him with the respect that he has earned. The hashtag #ShowYourRumpToTrump has been revived on social media, after first appearing when a visit was mooted last year. British opponents of Donald Trump looking forward to shouting at the U.S. president in person this summer could be disappointed. Signs point to him being kept as far away as possible from the masses when he comes.
His visit on July 13 is not the full state visit initially promised by Prime Minister Theresa May more than a year ago. Early reports suggest his big moments may be held outside of London in anticipation of protests.
British citizens are readying a 20 foot tall baby Trump balloon totally tricked out with a golden comb-over, a diaper, a pair of tiny hands, and a cellphone. Surely, Comrade Cheetolino will feel the love and affection pouring out from all corners of the United Kingdom.
