From “Crooked Hillary” to “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer,” President Donald Trump has shown that he’s not above employing childish nicknames to taunt his political enemies, but now he’s getting a taste of his own medicine.
Stormy Daniels’ lawyer and possible presidential candidate Michael Avenatti took to Twitter to poll his followers as to which nickname he should use for the President.
Donald Trump has been giving nicknames for years. Let’s see if he can take one. Which of these should we use going forward?

Mr. Avenatti emerged as a key player against Trump earlier this year when he filed a suit in order to get adult film star Stephanie Clifford (better known as Stormy Daniels) out of a non-disclosure agreement brokered by Michael Cohen to conceal her consensual 2006 affair with Donald Trump.
Since then, Avenatti has been a regular guest on cable news shows, frequently antagonizing Trump and Michael Cohen, and even releasing private bank records revealing large deposits made to the account used to pay Daniels.
Avenatti has been such a thorn in the side of the Trump administration that this tweet seems comparatively mild. That didn’t stop his followers from having some fun.
So far, “Don the Con” maintains a strong lead, but after 2016 everyone’s prepared for an upset.
