Trumpery

While I was preparing today’s post on the Donald J. Trump State Park in New York, one of my favorite online features, called Word-a-Day, issued an item on the word “trumpery.” Merriam-Webster defines the word as meaning “worthless nonsense.” The online text didn’t mention President Trump. It didn’t need to. Trump’s public statements of the past few days attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci and playing down the danger of covid-19 fit the definition of “trumpery” so well that no comment was needed.
