    Charlottesville Vice-Mayor calls Trump “45,” doesn’t deserve title “President Trump”

    Charlottesville Vice-Mayor calls Trump “45,” doesn’t deserve title “President Trump”

    I’ll call him President Trump “when he begins to act as if he deserves to be in that office”

    Appearing on CNN this morning, Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy repeatedly referred to President Trump as “45.”

    Host Chris Cuomo eventually asked him about it, to which he responded:

    “That’s just what I call him. I believe that when he begins to act as if he deserves to be in that office, and leads in terms of unifying people, then he will deserve the name of President Trump. But at this point, I believe that he has not done the things in regards to bringing this country together.”

    Disrespectful? Perhaps. Then again, “45” does have a catchy ring to it. After all, it is a huge caliber—bigly! Who knows, with a slight modification, President Trump might even adopt the moniker: Colt 45!

    CHRIS CUOMO: Do you believe the president helped with what he said yesterday?

    WES BELLAMY: I believe that 45 did make some strides in regards to specifically condemning the white supremacists and the KKK . . . I would love to move away from the remarks and comments of 45 and focus more on what’s going on here on the ground in Charlottesville . . . So again, I’m not as concerned with what 45 is doing, I’m more concerned with us progressing as a community.

    CHRIS CUOMO: Wes, quick question. Why do you refer to the president as 45? Yes, he is the 45th president, but is that intentional, or is that just a quick term.

    BELLAMY: Well, that’s just what I call him. I believe that when he begins to act as if he deserves to be in that office, and leads in terms of unifying people, then he will deserve the name of President Trump. But at this point, I believe that he has not done the things in regards to bringing this country together, he has not done the things in regards to making us a more unified place. Nor has he decided to condemn the individuals in a rapid pace, or as he should, or speak out in the way we believe he should. But again, I’m not here to talk about 45.

    Hmmm. Instead of Vice-Mayor, I’ll just call him Racist Jerkwad then, since he has already earned that title.

    The slow-rolling coup is really ramping up. Facts be damned.

    That’s gotta sting. It’ll probably leave a mark!
