Italians have a fond nickname for Trump: "molto pazzo"

ROME ― As President Donald Trump makes his Italian debut in meetings with Pope Francis and government leaders on Wednesday, many Italians can already express their impression of the new U.S. president with a single word: “pazzo.”

“People think he’s a little crazy,” said Benedetta Alabardi, a pharmacist whose store sits a few hundred yards from St. Peter’s Square.

“The first impression is that he’s crazy and dangerous,” said Orasti Gionti, a project manager for a telecommunications consulting company, who allowed for the possibility that Trump’s outrageous statements were an act. “Maybe he’s tricky.”

Fruit vendor Chowdhury Rafiquizzaman saw no need for any such qualifier.

“He is crazy,” he said. “Not only crazy, he is very crazy.”

7. My Italian grandmother had a lot of choice words for Repubs.

She liked to tell Reagan, "Stunada, va fungu culo ". Translation, "Stupid, go f*** yourself up the ass". It was always accompanied by a hand gesture. I'm sure if she were alive she'd have a much harsher suggestion for the Donald. Actually, I think she probably would have been killed by him...she would've exploded on Nov 9th.

11. I'd like to work "ratso" and "fatso" in there, too.

I think the UN should get involved to come up with a suitable international appellation which will unite the world. Just like Coke teaching the world to sing in perfect harmony.

30. I suggest that we change #45's international nickname to "Loser".

It can happen if everyone who has family and friends outside of USA email them and ask them to please refer to Trump as "Loser".
