I Suppose That It Must Be a “Fake Dictionary”


This is an item by Jeva Lange for The Week:

President Trump’s alleged word choice when referring to African nations during an immigration meeting on Thursday has sparked bipartisan and international condemnation. The latest scathing rebuke, though, has come from … the dictionary.

It is surely no coincidence that Merriam-Webster’s word of the day means “worthy of blame or censure.” It is not even the first time the dictionary has trolled Trump with its word of the day, NPR reports. After Trump misspelled “unprecedented” as “unpresidented,” the dictionary cheekily made its word of the day “huh.”
