Is Trumpolini a Catchy Nick Name?

The Donald is so fond of tagging his opponents with nick names. There was Little Marco, and Lyin' (Lion) Ted Cruz, and now Crooked Hillary. Well, that last one wasn't that catchy. Many commentators outside the national spotlight have compared The Donald favorably (or unfavorably depending on how you look at it) to Benito Mussolini. In honor of this all to obvious comparison, I propose a nick name for The Donald in keeping with his rhetoric - Trumpolini. Do you think we can get this to stick? Do you think it is an accurate representation of The Donald's political philosopy?

I think it's a bit of a stretch to accuse him of being a Fascist. If that is Trump, then what the heck are Obama, Clinton and Sanders?

They are socialists, the other end of the spectrum politically. the only thing is one has to be a dedicated student of political science to tell them apart at times. I am making a bit of a stretch, though. The Fascists here in the US, and yes they do have a party here, do not want to be associated with Trump as they think he is too far to the right for them.

This is a great nickname and I have to say that sometimes he takes the same postures that the Italian "Duce" had.

It makes one wonder if he's studied some of the old newsreels from Benito's days in the spotlight.

@DWDavis I have seen some funny caricatures on the web, he seems he studies the Benito mimics.

It has a nice ring to it. Does he ever get Donald Duck? I really, really hope he doesn't become your next president.

I think the only time he might hear Donald Duck is when one of his henchman sees a rock coming his way and yells, Duck! Donald, Duck!

@DWDavis Haha. That's very clever. I was telling someone that we have a Trump-type politician too but I think he is on the way out now.

I personally don't like the idea of comparing any of our politicians, no matter how distasteful they are, to insane, murdering dictators/fascists like Mussolini or Hitler.

Historically, at least at the beginning, Mussolini was nothing like Hitler Mussolini was well respected around the world for many of his fascist policies in Italy and the improvement he made, before he joined in Hitler's axis. Mr Trump, in many of his speeches, sounds eerily like the early Mussolini, with his nationalism, his rabid xenophobia, and his apparent belief that he will be able to rule by decree rather than govern through the democratic process.

That is pretty funny. I, for some reason, thought it had something to do with him on a trampoline. Mussolini is even better. Well done!

The way Trumpolini jumps around during his speeches, he may have a tiny trampoline in his head that his ideas keep bouncing around on.
