The correct meaning of words. Who needs ’em? What are words, anyway, if not a vehicle by which to twist reality?
These are the implicit questions The Daily Show suggests (via an excellent new hashtag) America’s First Daughter raised in her CBS interview on Wednesday — the take-away quotes being, “I don’t know what it means to be complicit,” and also “If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit.”
The response to Ivanka Trump’s word-pretzeling was swift. Because if being “savage” is wanting to be a force for sanity and comedy in a world full of spin, then yes, social media got savage.
Thus, #Ivanktionary was born.
Who needs dictionaries nowadays, when we all have access to emojis and the very malleable #Ivanktionary? Plebian Twitter couldn’t resist getting involved.
Congratulations, internet. You are all complicit in making us LOL.
