Former President George W. Bush was known for his nicknames — and he was a master.
He called senior advisor Karl Rove “Turd Blossom.” For Russian President Vladimir Putin — “Pooty Poot.” Vice President Dick Cheney was “Big Time,” White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card was “Tangent Man,” and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was “Guru.”
But President Trump is giving Bush a run for his money — and his new one for Joe Biden is perfect.

Oops! Joe Biden read the “topline message” part of the talking points his handlers gave him for a TV interview.

Trump has repeatedly hit Biden for hunkering in his basement. “Somebody like Biden, he doesn’t know what to do,” Trump said last month. “He doesn’t come out because he can’t. He doesn’t take any questions from reporters. … This guy doesn’t come out of his basement, and he hasn’t taken one question.”
