His Trumpiness has told agencies that there are certain words they can't use in budget documents. In a few instances, the Trump administration offered 'alternative phrases' to replace the now forbidden words. The forbidden words/terms are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.” It's true...it is not fake news. And the photo isn't fake news either...but it is satire...
Agency analysts have been told to avoid these seven banned words and phrases in budget documents.

I thought that this is something that only dictators used to do, Mussolini in the old times had a list of "forbidden words" in Italy.

Well, I can sort of see the "science-based." I found an article in a 1968 newspaper that gave us the ol' "scientists say" spiel about how the earth was going to enter a "new ice age" by 1988 if something wasn't done about pollution..... Anyway, what about transgender fetuses? Aren't they entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of evidence?

I thought that it was one of the Bush men who was famous for making up words when there was a perfectly good and natural alternative. So, in other words, the second paragraph of the article should read: "Policy analysts at the Centers for illness management and hindrance in Atlanta were told of the list of verboten words at a gathering weekday with senior government agency officers World Health Organization superintend the budget, consistent with Associate in Nursing analyst World Health Organization took half within the 90-minute making known. The verboten words ar “v***e,” “e***t,” “d***y,” “t***r,” “f**s,” “e**e-b**d” and “s**e-b**d.

He's definitely a 'control freak' with an empty head and an ugly face! Dictators did this, during WWII.

The man is a joke and a baboon. He is mentally unstable and plain crazy. He needs to be removed. This country has been turned upside down because of him and those a-hole republicans in the cabinet. Like for instance, Paul Ryan. This is no longer a democracy. It is a dictatorship. How sad America has become.
