The term seems to come from an Orlando Sentinel editorial published Tuesday where the paper gave a sweeping endorsement of anybody but Trump ahead of his campaign launch in the city.

While the editorial admits some may find it difficult to eliminate a candidate before identifying an opponent, the paper wrote "there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump."

"After 2 1/2 years we've seen enough. Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies," they wrote.

The paper has a history of endorsing Republican candidates dating back to 1952, most recently in 2012.
