The correct term for a whole bunch of people is a “Clusterfuck of people” Had he used that term, there would have been no problem.
2 or 3 years ago, some guy in a prominent position was lambasted for using the word niggardly in it’s proper context. Now, I understand the confusion of those with a small vocabulary, but when we come down to having to avoid using words that sound a bit like other words…Well, that’s just bullshit.
It seems that we are very happy to dumb down our language to suit the masses, but as soon as there is an oportunity, to have a go at someone for doing that, all of a sudden we expect them to be absolutely accurate in their terminology.
It’s only politicians in this case though, so fuck 'em.
