Donald Trump is psyched about his defamatory nickname for Hillary Clinton — and veteran journalist Doyle McManus believes "Crooked Hillary" could stick.

"Trump dispatched his Republican rivals by branding each one with an insulting but memorable nickname," McManus writes in the Los Angeles Times.

Noting the GOP presidential front-runner's punchy monikers "Lyin' Ted" for Ted Cruz and "Little Marco" for Marco Rubio caught on, McManus says Trump's latest nickname could be a problem for Clinton.

"All campaign long, pollsters have found that many voters — including some Democrats — don't think she's principled," McManus writes.

"Maybe it's her four decades in bare-knuckle politics, ancient questions about investment deals in Arkansas, her entanglement in her husband's personal scandals, her decision to set up a private email server when she was secretary of State, her big-dollar fundraising and speech fees — or all of the above. Fairly or not, Clinton can't shed her history."
