-A blustering, bullying fellow; a pot-valiant braggart; a bully.

After Drawcansir, a character in George Villiers' play The Rehearsal.

Used in a sentence:

“It really came as no surprise that when confronted by protesters at his rally, instead of trying to win them over by warm sincerity and the quality of his character, the mal-coiffed Drawcansir chose instead to abuse and insult anyone who posed any kind of threat to his bigoted ideology.”
