You Keep Using This Word

Full of hot air?

“I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is a foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they’re bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive. They want to do well and we want to do well.”

Maybe Comrade Stupid doesn’t know what Foe means? and the blown-dry interviewer did throw in “competitor” right before foe, so maybe he confused the dim bulb?

Well-played, Merriam-Webster, very well-played!

    That is what he said. This is how the GOP (and Possum Holler) will interpret it:

    “I think we have a lot of foes friends. I think the European Union is a foe friend, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe friend. Russia is a foe friend in certain respects. China is a foe friend economically, certainly they are a foe friend. But that doesn’t mean they’re bad foes. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive. They want to do well and we want to do well.”
