The Brief: Orange Man is a term used to refer to President Donald Trump.


A reference to his orange skin, Orange Man is stereotypically used as an insult by opponents of Donald Trump. In the same vein, Trump has also been referred to as Cheeto Man in reference to his skin tone. 

Possibly more often than it is used by anti-Trumpers themselves, “Orange Man” is used by supporters of the president when characterizing his liberal opponents. The criticism here is that Trump opponents are more focused on his physical appearance than they are on his policies. The phrase “Orange Man bad” is often associated with the NPC meme in which a liberal person blindly follows the crowd, without actually evaluating their stances or having original opinions of their own.
