Twitter Has Field Day With Trump’s New Nickname For Sen. Durbin: ‘Dicky Durbin? #Sad’

This afternoon, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to weigh in on the furor over his reported “shithole countries” remarks. He claimed that his comments have been “totally misrepresented” and took aim at Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who has insisted that the president did indeed disparage Haiti and African nations, as well as the people from those countries.

However, he didn’t just make the claim that he didn’t say “shithole” while taking shots at the Democratic lawmaker. Trump also bestowed a new nickname upon Durbin — “Dicky.”

As you’d imagine, Twitter had a lot to say about the president now labeling the Senate Minority Whip “Dicky Durbin.”

It would appear that the general consensus in the media Twittersphere is that they all can’t be winners and that this was a fairly weak effort by the president. Sad!
