Very interesting.  Remember _Bush 41_ and _Bush 43_.  Earlier presidents so
represented?

Wes Bellamy, Vice Mayor of Charlottesville, has been on TV lately referring
to the President solely as "Number 45" (or "45," for short). He explained
that he will not utter the name of D----- T----.

Since then several other interviewees (none of them Republicans) have
adopted this designation.
