A Modest Suggestion about Referring to the "Other Guy"

With respect for anyone who wishes to use his or her own unique verbiage, may I suggest that we generally refer to him as the defeated former guy. Whatever term or phrase we may personally use to describe him, I believe it will be more effective if we fairly consistently use the term defeated in our terminology. It reflects reality in a way that deserves to be regularly repeated. At least that's my perception. Thank you for considering my suggestion, fellow DU friends and associates. - Dave

1. I kind of like The fucking criminal misogynist asshole.

But I get your point.

I'll start using "The Defeated Fucking Criminal Misogynist Asshole."

2. I refer to him as

“He who cannot be shamed” (other than by whatever Putin has recorded of him with prostitutes).

Who that is without question. But that defeated piece of garbage is better.

14. He hates the term "ex"

He should be referred to as the ex-president by the people and the media. Always.

18. I generally refer to him

as "that sack of orange $hit" who formerly occupied the Oval Office.

I never referred to him as "President".
