Should we start calling Republicans something else now?

>inb4 "garbage", "shit", etc

Well first we had republicans (wars, deregulation, guns, money, etc); but then a lot of their base suddenly said "I'm a libertarian now" following the historic catastrophe that was the W administration, then those people became teabaggers, who largely elected low intelligence representatives with a grab-bag of nationalist ideology, corruption, and bigotry (their only requirement for sailing into office being hyper-partisan anti-Obama conspiracy theories). Then these people attached their poorly constructed highschool shop class tier wagon to a gold-painted facade with the letters TRUMP emblazoned across its cowcatcher; effectively an entity with no fixed ideological values save for "money money money" and "Fuck YOU"; incomparable to the republican party of ol'.

Right now there are still remnants of the old guard who've proclaimed themselves "NeverTrump Republicans" but I feel like that won't catch on in the mainstream. You basically see a lot of people jumping parties because of the weird-ass place rock bottom they've reached after losing an election to a black man. Brandishing these new "Trumpists" with a catchy name is a good way to coax those that stubbornly cling to their (R) to not cave to their hyper-partisan predisposition and kneejerkedly support Trump and his cohorts. A good way to inspire the voters that'll never vote for anything other than republican (because they think that's a virtue or some other twisted sophistry) to connect the lines that they're not actually voting for a republican by supporting the republicans of the Trump era; convincing them to stay home or vote (I) (let's be real the people I'm talking about wouldn't vote democrat even if they were promised riches and eternal youth).

1. Trumplicans

They created him. They own him. He - the draft and tax dodging pussy-grabbing, casino cheating bully ahole - is the role model for them and their children and grandchildren ad nauseum.

This is the inevitable and degenerate result of republican "family values"

3. I like "criminals"

or "corrupt money-grubbing criminals." "Traitors" and money-laundering traitors" would be a close 2nd. We have to tie republicans into the love and pursuit of money at any cost and by any means as their highest value. They pretend to worship Jesus, but they really just worship the God of money. They have sold their souls for money. They will tell any lie, cheat any one for money. They have no integrity whatsoever.

My favorite image from the Trump campaign. When I saw him do this live on TV, I said to myself: "That's the most shameless display every. This man is a master con artist, posing with an image at the level of grade school children." He is disgusting, vulgar, cheap, and an embarrassment to our country.

7. Anti-American traitors

They put Russia--a hostile, dicatorial foreign power--before their own country just for the sake of totalitarian power.
