Business Insider has compiled a bunch of Merriam-Webster tweets about the Trump Administration and its use of language. The video, titled "Merriam-Webster can't stop trolling the Trump administration on Twitter," presents several examples:
- Highlighted the word most often looked up in November: fascism
- Clarified the difference between "historic" and "historical," a word incorrectly used by Secretary of Education Betsy deVos
- Noted that the Holocaust refers "to the Nazis' mass murder of European Jews" after The White House neglected to mention Jews in the International Holocaust Rememberance Day statement
- Defined "betrayal" after Sean Spicer said he wouldn't define the word during a press conference.
- What's implied in Business Insider's report? Is this a criticism? I'm not sure.
- How helpful do you find Merriam-Webster's tweets? Some are clarifying and some are not.
