Jeb Bush, you may have dropped out of the race early thus prematurely snatching eventual Republican nominee Donald Trump’s dozens of satisfying chances to call you “low energy Jeb” to the howls of delighted audiences everywhere, but that doesn’t mean you have the patent on lethargic, snail-like boringness.
After all, why retire a perfectly good nickname when the current opponent fits it to a T?
During an afternoon campaign speech in Roanoke, Virginia on Monday, Trump was busily critiquing Hillary Clinton’s numerous and devastating lapses in judgment during her time as Secretary of State when he was suddenly interrupted by an attendee who yelled “low energy!”
When the man accused Clinton of taking naps during the day, Trump responded, “She’s low energy. She actually is low energy. She’ll go home, she’ll take a nap for four or five hours and then she’ll come back. No naps for Trump! I don’t nap. We don’t have time. We don’t have time.”
Trump has brought up the “low energy” theme with Clinton before. In December, he told Fox News’s Media Buzz that Clinton’s routine campaign trail absences could mean she doesn’t have the “strength or stamina” needed to be president.
“She goes out and she sees you guys for about 10 minutes, she sees you for a little while, it’s all rehearsed and staged. They’ll pick a couple of people out of the audience that are like, you know, 100 percent. She’ll sit around a little plastic table, they’ll talk to the people for a while. It’s ridiculous. And then she goes away for five or six days and you don’t see her. She goes to sleep.”
Trump then pointed out the very real implications of a habitual napper in the Oval Office.
“How do you think ISIS is going to react? We don’t need someone who goes home and takes naps.”
Of course, why stop at just one, or a dozen? During a town hall with VP nominee Mike Pence, Trump introduced yet another fitting moniker for his opponent.
“Why did Hillary get rid of her middle name?” Trump asked, referring to her maiden name, Rodham, “Hillary Rotten Clinton. Rotten Clinton. Hillary Rotten Clinton, right? Maybe that’s why, it’s too close.”
