If you’ve ever spent enough time on Twitter, you’ve probably encountered a truly obnoxious person who can only argue by lobbing personal insults at you and who delights in offending everyone by making racist and sexist statements. We typically think of these people as loser trolls who lead miserable, lonely lives. But what happens when one of them happens to be a doughy stubby-fingered billionaire who could soon become the president of the United States?

That’s basically what we’re seeing right now with Donald Trump, who has essentially become Lord of the Trolls on Twitter and who can command an army of similarly foul-mouthed racists to swarm anyone else on the social network whom he believes deserves punishment.

The New York Times today has an interesting report on what happens to you on Twitter if Trump directs one of his insults at you. In short, your feed becomes overwhelmed by horrible people who say horrible things about you.

In this case, it was Republican political strategist Cheri Jacobus who felt the wrath of Trump’s fans after criticizing his decision to skip a presidential debate in Iowa.

“For days, [Trump fans] replied to his posts with demeaning, often sexually charged insults aimed at Ms. Jacobus, including several with altered, vulgar photographs of her face,” the Times writes.

The report goes on to note that Trump will typically go out of his way to mock an opponent’s physical characteristics, despite the fact that Trump’s own face looks like a pug that’s been smashed with an iron for a straight week. This gives his own legion of Twitter trolls material that they can use to taunt his target relentlessly. If you’re a woman, they also regularly claim that you only dislike Trump because he turned you down for sex.

“Over and over and over again: You were rejected by him, you’re a scorned woman,” Jacobus told the Times.

Trump also this week posted a mafia-style threat against a powerful GOP donor family whom rumors had claimed would soon start spending money to campaign against him:

I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $'s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!

Really, it’s wonderful to imagine what would happen if we made a person like this the most powerful man in the world. I imagine him sending out a tweet after a meeting with Angela Merkel that referred to the German chancellor as a “bimbo” who had “blood coming out of her wherever.” This would certainly make America something, although “great” is not the word that readily comes to mind.

To Fight Critics, Donald Trump Aims to Instill Fear in 140-Character Doses

Cheri Jacobus, a Republican political strategist, did not think she had done anything out of the ordinary: On a cable television show, she criticized Donald J. Trump for skipping a debate in Iowa in late January and described him as a “bad debater.”

But then Mr. Trump took to Twitter, repeatedly branding Ms. Jacobus as a disappointed job seeker who had begged to work for his campaign and had been rejected. “We said no and she went hostile,” he wrote. “A real dummy!” Mr. Trump’s campaign manager told the same story on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Mr. Trump’s Twitter followers, who number about six million, piled on.
For days, they replied to his posts with demeaning, often sexually charged insults aimed at Ms. Jacobus, including several with altered, vulgar photographs of her face.

“Cheri is a nutcase,” wrote @LegendaryTrump. Another Twitter user, @stockedwood, wrote, “How the hell does a woman like her get on the air???”

With his enormous online platform, Mr. Trump has badgered and humiliated those who have dared to cross him during the presidential race. He has latched onto their vulnerabilities, mocking their physical characteristics, personality quirks and, sometimes, their professional setbacks. He has made statements, like his claims about Ms. Jacobus, that have later been exposed as false or deceptive — only after they have ricocheted across the Internet.

“In almost every sentence of his speeches, in almost every page of his writings, Mussolini curses his opponents. He is always shouting “scoundrel,” “traitor,” “egotist” at someone; his enemies are “soft-brained cowards,” “swelled frogs,” and “a base and pernicious crew”; he never hesitates to call the man who differs from his opinions a liar; with the utmost contempt he speaks of political enemies and those who have fought duels with him as weaklings, cowards; referring to foreign statesmen and journalists who have said he threatens the peace of the world he replies these are the “accusations of fools”; when he can find nothing evil to say of those whom the world honors he calls them “egocentric,” he speaks of their “unbridled egotism”; he is always attacking those who “sell themselves for money, for power,” whom he despises — and frequently the word “turncoat” comes up and the six four-letter words in Joyce’s ‘Ulysses.’…

“Need one go to a psychologist for the explanation of such behavior, or is ordinary intelligence sufficient guide? Proust speaks of “that habit of denouncing in other people defects precisely analogous to one’s own.” “For,” he says, “it is always of those defects that people speak, as though it were a way of speaking about oneself, indirectly, which added to the pleasure of absolution that of confession. Besides, it seems that our attention, always attracted by what is characteristic of ourself, notices that more than anything else in other people . . . an unwashed man speaks only of the baths that other people do not take … a cuckold sees cuckolds everywhere, a light woman light women, a snob snobs.” There can be no better explanation.”

–- Sawdust Caesar, by George Seldes


Many recipients of Mr. Trump’s hectoring are fellow politicians, with paid staff members to help them defend themselves. But for others, the experience of being targeted by Mr. Trump is nightmarish and a form of public degradation that they believe is intended to scare off adversaries by making an example of them.

And as more mainstream forces in the Republican Party try to unite to stop his march to the nomination, they are finding that the fear of taking on Mr. Trump is discouraging his would-be opponents from signing on to the fight.

“I’ve never encountered an American politician at this level that people are literally afraid of — donors are afraid of him,” said Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, a magazine that has criticized Mr. Trump. He added, “If it was Hillary Clinton that was doing it, the entire right-wing world would erupt in outrage, understandably and correctly.”

It is not just that Mr. Trump has a skill for zeroing in on an individual’s soft spot and hammering at it. It is that he sets a tone of aggression against the person, and his supporters echo and amplify it.

“Over and over and over again: You were rejected by him, you’re a scorned woman,” Ms. Jacobus said, paraphrasing the hundreds of online attacks she faced.

Ms. Jacobus sent a cease-and-desist letter to Mr. Trump and his top aide, citing electronic messages that showed the Trump campaign had courted her and not the other way around.

“I have been trashed and ruined on Twitter,” Ms. Jacobus said. She said that Mr. Trump’s lawyers had responded to her letter, but that they had not yet reached a resolution.

Even when Mr. Trump moves on to something or someone else on Twitter, his followers linger on the last fight.

Mr. Lowry, who devoted an issue of his magazine to critiquing Mr. Trump and has welcomed the candidate’s scorn, said he received a flood of hostile Twitter attacks from Mr. Trump’s followers after the issue was published. Their posts, he said, regularly include “some really vile, neo-Nazi-issue white nationalist, heinous personal abuse, kind of racially tinged stuff.”

As Mr. Trump has risen in the Republican race, he has only dialed up his tactics. This week, he sent out a menacing message on Twitter about the Ricketts family, a wealthy clan of Republican political donors, after it was reported that Marlene Ricketts donated $3 million to a group opposed to Mr. Trump’s candidacy.

“They better be careful,” Mr. Trump wrote of the family, “they have a lot to hide!”

“It’s a little surreal when Donald Trump threatens your mom,” Marlene Ricketts’s son, Tom, later told reporters.

Others say Mr. Trump’s actions go beyond the outlandish and cross into more sinister territory. Parry Aftab, a lawyer who leads the Internet safety group WiredSafety, said Mr. Trump’s behavior was a textbook example of cyberbullying.

Every political marriage involves a bit of calculation, and in the case of the Christie-Trump endorsement, both men have a lot to gain.

In particular, she said his methods were characteristic of “mean-girl cyberbullying” because he enlists others to mimic his attacks. She said his conduct resembled the violent and abusive language her organization can often get removed from Facebook and Twitter.

“At what point does it cross the line into something that’s defamatory and might be actionable?” Ms. Aftab said. “At what point does it cross the line into encouraging violence against groups and individuals?”


In Iowa and New Hampshire, Mr. Trump savaged local power brokers who had endorsed other candidates and criticized his campaign. He called Joseph W. McQuaid, the publisher of The New Hampshire Union Leader, a “psycho” and a “dirty dog,” and he accused him of trying to force Mr. Trump to advertise in his newspaper before it endorsed Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Mr. McQuaid, who has roundly denied Mr. Trump’s claims, said he still gets occasional Twitter messages and letters from readers about his clash with Mr. Trump, weeks after the Feb. 9 primary. “I think his goal,” Mr. McQuaid said, “is to shut down opposition.”

Corey Lewandowski, the Trump campaign manager, said his candidate’s practice of battering opponents on social media showed that Mr. Trump was “the ultimate counterpuncher,” a tough candidate unwilling to take even the slightest criticism lightly.

“When someone attacks him, should he just not respond?” Mr. Lewandowski said. “That’s not fair.”

Mr. Lewandowski said he was unaware of a cease-and-desist letter from Ms. Jacobus, and he described the Trump fans who follow the candidate’s lead as people who “trust Donald Trump to, when he has to, take action” against those who wish him ill.

If Mr. Trump’s merciless methods have seemed to help him so far, there could be a political down side over the long run. His attacks have opened wounds in the Republican ranks that are unlikely to heal anytime soon. Several people he has targeted have said they would have difficulty supporting him in a general election.

Bob Vander Plaats, an influential evangelical activist in Iowa, said it might be impossible for him to vote for Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump wooed Mr. Vander Plaats for his endorsement early on and turned on him bitterly after Mr. Vander Plaats instead backed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

In late January, Mr. Vander Plaats recalled, he was about to go on television when his phone beeped, as it does whenever his Twitter handle is mentioned. This time, the mention was by @realDonaldTrump, who accused Mr. Vander Plaats of seeking free hotel stays for his family in exchange for his endorsement of Mr. Trump. Mr. Vander Plaats said the charge was flatly false.

“I mean, the wind gets knocked out of you,” Mr. Vander Plaats said. “And the reason the wind gets knocked out of you is you think: This is going out to millions of people. And your mom’s going to read it. And it’s going to be in the newspapers.”


Asked if he could ever vote for Mr. Trump, under any circumstances, Mr. Vander Plaats paused before answering, “It would be very difficult, today, to say I could cross that bridge to get there.”

Introducing the Upshot’s Encyclopedia of Donald Trump’s Twitter Insults

The mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey is “not a nice person.” The golf swing of the actor Samuel L. Jackson is “not athletic.” A lectern in the Oval Office “looks odd,” and the mobile carrier T-Mobile’s service “is terrible.”

These comments are not private thoughts, nor are they the result of an embarrassing hidden camera, an off-the-record comment or a document release. They are public statements made by Donald Trump to his 5.9 million Twitter followers.

We know this because we’ve read, tagged and quoted them all.

The end result is “Donald Trump’s Twitter Insults: The Complete List (So Far).” It’s not a sample of some insults, or just those about his political rivals — though plenty of those exist. It’s the full count — a 100 percent sample, in polling terms — representing our best effort to categorize more than 4,000 tweets Mr. Trump has made since he declared his candidacy in June 2015.

Of those, we found that one in every eight was a personal insult of some kind.

Perhaps most predictable is Mr. Trump’s propensity to insult other presidential candidates, both Republicans and Democrats. (In Mr. Trump’s words, John Kasich is a “dummy” and Rick Perry “should be forced to take an IQ test.”)

But what is particularly fascinating is just how personal these jabs are. Yes, Bernie Sanders attacks bankers and George H.W. Bush accused Michael Dukakis of being unpatriotic. But there’s something different about Mr. Trump’s style and sheer volume of insult-throwing.

“American politics has never been much of a genteel affair,” said David Greenberg, a Rutgers University professor and author of a new book on crafting the image of a president, “Republic of Spin.” At the same time, “I certainly can’t think of anyone who did this to this extent,” Mr. Greenberg said.

Mark Summers, a professor of history at the University of Kentucky, said, “The closest we can come is Harry S. Truman in the 1948 campaign comparing Thomas E. Dewey and his little mustache to Hitler.”

Our list also includes insults that don’t fit easily into a neat pile. (We’re calling these “other.”) After Neil Young requested that Mr. Trump not play his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” at campaign events, Mr. Trump tweeted that he “didn’t love” the song anyway. Mr. Trump called Karl Rove’s book about President William McKinley “terrible (and boring).” He even criticized an Oregon golf resort, Bandon Dunes — “a toy” compared with some Scottish clubs.

He has insulted more than two dozen media organizations, including The New York Times, in recent weeks. Lately, he has been focused on Fox News and his withdrawal from the pre-Iowa caucus debate it is sponsoring. “Pathetic,” he tweeted. “Without me they’d have no ratings.” Even his official campaign statement on the debate disparages “very stupid, highly incompetent people running our country into the ground” and “all talk, no action politicians.”

Win or lose, it’s a safe bet that the insults will keep coming.

In the seven months since declaring his candidacy for president, Donald Trump has used Twitter to lob insults at presidential candidates, journalists, news organizations, nations, a Neil Young song and even a lectern in the Oval Office. We know this because we’ve read, tagged and quoted them all. Below, a directory of sorts, with links to the original tweets. Insults within the last two weeks are highlighted.
