Merriam-Webster Just Completely Embarrassed Ivanka Trump With This Viral Tweet

During an interview with CBS’s Gayle King on Tuesday Ivanka Trump was asked what she thought of the people that accuse her of being complicit.

Her response? Well she stated:

“If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit. .. I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be complicit.”

After giving such a baffling response, Merriam-Webster decided to take on to Twitter to teach Ivanka what complicit actually means.

“Complicit: helping to commit a crime or do wrong in some way.”

“Complicit is thought to be a back-formation (a word formed by shortening an existing, and longer, word), taken from the older complicity (“association or participation in or as if in a wrongful act”). Complicity has been in use since at least the middle of the 17th century, when Thomas Blount defined the word memorably (and succinctly) as “a consenting or partnership in evil.” Complicit is considerably more recent, with our earliest evidence currently coming from the middle of the 19th century.”

Trump has chosen Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner as top advisers, two people that know nothing about politics are advising a man that knows nothing about politics. This is the America we live in.
