It all started June 16, 2015. Donald J. Trump slithered down an escalator to declare his candidacy for President of the United States. Since that fateful day, the Republican nominee has been called an awful lot of names.

Racist, bigot, xenophobe, sexist, conman, and – one of my personal favorites – demagogue, just to name a few.

To justify all of the above name-calling, there’s a virtual smorgasbord of scandals to choose from. A few examples:

If in need of further data, on September 13, 2016 noted journalist, Keith Olbermann, host of GQ’s The Closer, offered a comprehensive list of “176 shocking things Donald Trump has done.” Olbermann’s 176 (plus a sequel of 74 more) were then followed by Trump’s 5 A.M. Twitter tirade against former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, and the self-professed respecter of women impotently bragging how celebrity allows him to get away with sexual assault.

So, based on the evidence, it appears the name-calling list thus far is accurate, and we can also add misogynist.

With most of his deplorable behavior well covered, some have added supplementary names to the list using his above behavior combined with his apparently Everest-sized mountain of lies. Again, just a few examples:

With reference to Trump’s documented lies, Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC’s Last Word called Trump a pathological liar, meaning his lies are compulsive. “He knows you know he’s lying […], but he simply cannot resist […].” Conversely, Fareed Zakaria of CNN and the Washington Post believes, at his core, Trump is instead a bullshit artist. “Liars and truth-tellers are both acutely aware of facts and truths. […] The B.S. artist, however, has lost all connection with reality. He pays no attention to the truth.”

So, whatever way you cut it, based on the evidence, Donald has told a myriad of easily exposed lies. This means we can now reasonably add to our list pathological liar, bullshit artist, or just plain ole liar, liar pants (made in China) on fire.

Seriously. Name-calling Trump is exhausting.

Every day it seems the Republican candidate for President provides us with yet another scandal, another lie, which ultimately lengthens this already extensive list of unflattering names. But when it comes right down to it, what does all this name-calling accomplish? We already know – and have known for some time – what this tangerine-faced, tiny-handed, Twitter meltdowning, dictator-loving, deeply narcissistic, profoundly insecure bully with the temperament of an infant, racist, bigoted, xenophobic, sexist, conman, demagogue, misogynist, pathological, bullshit shoveling, liar has always been…

Donald Trump is an asshole.

It all started June 16, 2015. Donald J. Trump slithered down an escalator to declare his candidacy for President of the United States. Since that fateful day, the now Republican nominee has said and done plenty of abhorrent things to warrant being called an awful lot of names. He didn’t just cross the line with his comments about Mexican immigrants, Muslims, women, veterans, the disabled, the media, the President, or any number of people, places, and things; he crossed a thousand lines a thousand and one times proving himself over and over and over to be the most unqualified, undignified, insufferable a-hole to ever darken America’s doorstep, not to mention a presidential election. When this all comes to a merciful end, November 8, 2016, it is my hope, as well as the hope of millions of other rational people around the world, that Donald J. Trump will finally be called the only name that truly matters.

Loser.
