Four years ago approx today, the media was trying to tell is that Trump only won because of this very scary thing called fake news; and look at how deftly Trump flipped that script into pointing out that the m5m is the fake news. Watching the transformation in real time was amazing.
And now "President-Elect" is the flip that it is. Pretty sure that term was used for Trump and Bobama and W et al.
As a dropout linguist I sure do love to see it
@salsaqueen To be fair, I've seen a picture where President Trump is using "The Office of the President Elect" as well, but that was taken well after the Electoral vote in January 2017.
@Arn0ud yeah I didn't first understand the controversy over it this time, had to incorporate it into all the rest.
