George Conway’s new nickname for Trump starts trend: ‘IMPOTUS’

George Conway, a conservative attorney and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, created a new nickname for President Trump that went viral Thursday after he lashed out online.

“An Update on IMPOTUS (IMpeached President Of The United States),” Conway, a frequent, and often fiery critic of the president tweeted Thursday night. 

POTUS is a common acronym that stands for president of the United States. The new acronym sought to combine the two ideas of impeachment and the presidential office into one. The House voted to impeach Trump on two articles of impeachment earlier this week, including abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“Okay, you want a hashtag, you got it. #IMPOTUS,” Conway later added.

#IMPOTUS quickly went viral on Twitter, shooting to the top of the trending hashtags Friday. Several Twitter users used the trend to criticize the president.

Pam Keith, a former Democratic House candidate, tweeted, “100% on board with this. I came up with #Imp45 but #IMPOTUS is better.”


Rob Anderson, a Louisiana Democratic House candidate, tweeted “I think #IMPOTUS is apt.”


Others also used the hashtag to jab the president.

Conway shared his new nickname for the president as the top trending search Friday morning. 

The Hill has reached out to Twitter for comment.
