Drudge’s nickname for Trump, written over a Politico article featuring Tuesday’s address, is one that has been used on him before. The “Teflon Don” moniker was first derived in the 1980’s and 1990’s to refer to New York mob boss John Gotti, who managed to flee FBI criminal charges numerous times despite their hard attempts to catch him.
