Trump on 2020 Dems: ‘SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie’

President Trump on Friday predicted Joe Biden would defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, employing a new nickname for the former vice president.

“Looks to me like it’s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!” Trump tweeted early Friday.

Trump has previously called Biden “Sleepy Joe” and said Sanders and he are the frontrunners in the 2020 Democratic primary race. He even suggested last week Sanders has an edge on Biden.

“He’s not as smart as Bernie, and he’s not as quick,” Trump said of Biden during an interview with Boston Herald Radio.{mosads}

Now, Trump is suggesting Biden has the advantage and using a new name referring to allegations of unwanted touching brought by more than a half dozen against the former vice president.

The president last month made an offhand remark about rhyming the nickname in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. 

“I thought to refer to him as Sleepy Joe, because a lot of people wanted me to take the word ‘sleepy’ to something that rhymes with it. Does that make sense to you? And I thought it was too nasty,” he said.

Biden has said he is sorry if he made the women feel uncomfortable and said he will be “more mindful” of respecting others’ personal space.

Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 23 women since the 1970s. He has denied all of the allegations.
