It seems certain that Donald Trump will be remembered as an innovator. We will look back on the President as a man of ideas, a man of reinvention, a man who changed the rules and forged his own course — by which I mean made-up words and malapropisms.
First, there was “covfefe,” which, as far as I know, has forever replaced the word “coffee” on the internet. Then, there was “text massages,” which, given the man in question, brings up weird sexual connotations on which I prefer not to elaborate.
And now? There’s “false acquisitions.”
Ranting in defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is presently embattled in a mountain of sexual misconduct allegations, noted stable genius Donald Trump condemned the charges against Kavanaugh as “false acquisitions.”
