Washington, D.C. (eTruePolitics) – Current president Donald J. Trump announced today he was directing his Justice Department to sue Merriam-Webster in an attempt to force the reference book publisher to permanently remove the words “lie,” “lying,” “liar” and “collusion” from their iconic dictionary.
“Who the hell is Merriam Webster and what gives her the right to tell America which words are okay to use?” Trump said in a tweet.
Defending the suit from free speech critics, Sarah Hucklebery Sanders told eTruePolitics that, “If a word no longer means anything, might as well get rid of it.”
Sanders added that Monday the Trump administration would file another lawsuit against Miriam-Webster, to remove the words “truth” and “fact” from their “politicized” dictionary.
