Over the weekend, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined an elite (and growing) group of people including the Khan family, Kristen Stewart, and this writer from Modern Family: She was personally insulted by Donald Trump on Twitter.

As far as Trump insults go, this one is pretty tepid. He’s already used that insult on Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, Fox News, and the New York Times (according to this handy Trump insult aggregator compiled by the New York Times).
