Dictionary.com Just SHREDDED Trump’s Budget For Being BRUTAL To The Poor (TWEETS)

If it seems to you that Team Trump doesn’t even know the definition of the word “compassion,” you are probably correct. The Donald’s budget slashes funding for medical research, public housing education, aid to the poor, and even funding for Meals on Wheels, funneling the money instead into our already bloated defense budget — and according to Trump’s White House, this is the very definition of compassion.

“Just to follow-up on that, you were talking about the steel worker in Ohio, coal worker in Pennsylvania, but they may have an elderly mother who depends on the Meals on Wheels program or who may have kids in Head Start,” CNN’s Jim Acosta said on Thursday, addressing White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. “Yesterday, or the day before, you described this as a hard-power budget. Is it also a hard-hearted budget?”

“No, I don’t think so,” Mulvaney replied. “I think it’s probably one of the most compassionate things we can do.”

“To cut programs that help the elderly and kids?” Acosta asked.

“You’re only focusing on half of the equation, right? You’re focusing on the recipients of the money. We’re trying to focus on both the recipients of the money and the folks who give us the money in the first place,” Mulvaney told Acosta. “And I think it’s fairly compassionate to go to them and say, ‘Look, we’re not gonna ask you for your hard-earned money, anymore, single mother of two in Detroit … unless we can guarantee to you that that money is actually being used in a proper function.’”

Mulvaney’s claim that gutting a program that helps provide the elderly both with human interaction and food id “compassionate” gave the folks at Dictionary.com pause to consider whether they actually need to add “feeding the poor” to the definition of the word to help the Trump folks out, since they don’t seem to get it.

Sadly, even if they did add “feed the poor” as an example of “compassion,” it probably would not do any good because those who align themselves with Trump generally don’t seem like the sort of people who would read any book, let alone open a dictionary.

Recently, the Dictionary was forced to help Sean Spicer out when he couldn’t figure out the definition of the word “cut”…

…as well as Trump supporters “boycotting” Hawaii because they don’t like a judge’s decision yet failing to know the definition of the word:

At this point, it’s safe to assume that Team Trump’s worst enemy is the Dictionary, as their assault on the English language has been more devastating than any attack by “Radical Islamic Extremists” on American soil since 9/11.
