President Amps Up Disparaging Tweets As Impeachment Heats Up

On the heels of disparaging nicknames used for other world leaders at this year's NATO summit, as well as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, by the President in the past several days, Statista has released a quantitative analysis of the Trump Twitter Archive showing that "Crooked Hillary" was by far his most-tweeted insult over the past two years, followed by "Sleepy Joe," "Shifty Schiff," "Cryin' Chuck," and Nervous Nancy."

"President Trump certainly has a penchant for using nicknames when speaking about his political opponents, foreign leaders and media personalities," writes Statista Data Journalist Niall McCarthy, adding: "As impeachment proceedings gathered pace in recent weeks, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, has been mentioned increasingly often in Trump's tweets."

The President's @realDonaldTrump Twitter account has 67.2 million followers, and his tweets are routinely picked up and covered by major media outlets, amplifying the reach of each tweet.
