🚨 POLL: Will Biden Lose in 2020?
Joe Biden revealed his recent choice of nickname for President Trump, and it’s “President Tweety,” according to the Daily Wire.
“Trump is out there tweeting again this morning. I call him ‘President Tweety,’” Biden said during a speech to the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Victory Fund.
Biden noted that Trump wrote on Twitter, “reopen the country,” then said: “How are we supposed to do that if you’re sitting on the money small businesses need? Stop tweeting about it. Get the money out to Main Street. It’s there. It’s been passed.”

On the subject of nicknames, Biden confronted the epic “Sleepy Joe” a nickname coined by President Trump.
Biden said, “In terms of energy … I don’t have any problem comparing my energy level to Donald Trump.”
“Trump is a master at laying nicknames on people,” adding that “I’m really resisting giving a nickname to” the president.
But he added, “I can hardly wait to get onto the stage with Donald Trump.”
“The pandemic has unleashed familiar forces of hate, fear and xenophobia that he always flames … that have always existed in this society,” Biden said. “But this president brought it with him, has brought with it a new rash of racial messages, verbal and physical attacks and other acts of hate, some subtle, some overt, against the Asian American and Pacific Islanders.”
“You’re going to hear, there’s a pond on the other side of my property here. A lot of Canadian geese. If you hear them honking away, they’re cheering, that’s what they’re about,” Biden said.

More from The Daily Wire:
Trump calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “Pocahontas” for her debunked claims that’s she’s Native American. He calls Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the Connecticut Democrat who falsely claimed to have fought in the Vietnam War, “Da Nang Dick.” Jeb Bush was, of course, “Low Energy Jeb.” Then there’s “Crooked Hillary,” “Lyin’ Leakin’ James Comey,” “Jeff Flakey,” “Head Clown Chuck Schumer,” and “Mad Maxine Waters.”
So Biden jumping into the nickname game is a big gamble.
And he didn’t, uh, do so well with his first effort.
Biden’s speech on Monday was beset by problems. In the live-streamed appearance from his home in Delaware, he accused Trump of fanning flames of “hate, fear and xenophobia” toward Asian Americans amid the COVID-19 pandemic
