Our Democratic betters love to criticize Donald Trump over his penchant for bestowing insulting nicknames upon people he doesn’t like. Maybe we’d take their criticisms a little more seriously if they weren’t doing stuff like this:
Pelosi today calls McConnell “Moscow Mitch.” “We’ve sent our legislation to the Senate. Moscow Mitch says he is the grim reaper. Imagine describing yourself as the grim reaper, that he’s going to bury all this legislation. . All this legislation is alive and well in” the public

Wow, way to go, Nancy Pelosi. The Dems are the real grownups, you guys.
@SpeakerPelosi is pretty childish

That sounds like something Trump would come up with. You know what they say about immitation being the most sincere form of flattery. While this might not have been Nancy's intent, that's how it looks. What type of example does such name calling set?

Yep. It’s OK when Dems do it:
Good. Need more of this from the leader.
