NPR used the word on the radio this morning. Are they saying it on TV too?

It's a classic souvenir. Flying off local newsstands.
I'm buying three. One to read. Two for the plastic.

BBC World Service would warn listeners and then use the word freely. I felt so proud of my country as I listened to the coverage of Trump’s crude and racist comments being broadcast around the World. MAGA indeed. facepalm

The day will come when presidents lead the way in educating the populace that there are no offensive words, only offensive behaviors. I strongly welcome any journalistic effort to cease protecting “the children,” whether they be actual children or adults who think like children and can’t handle the “bad words” like grownups.

Didn't used to be improper to paraphrase the President? I remember the kerfuffle when Bush the 1st used "We'll Kick His Ass" regarding Iraq's leader!

If the Prez said it, so can you. Then again, that's when the President was an inspiration, or at least not a point of shame!

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."
-- Edmund Burke
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt (1918)
