I nominate the first sentence in the last paragraph in this RAWSTORY article by Sarah K. Burris (right) which summarized a Washington Post column as the best use of words of the day:
But no Republican is brave enough to stand up and show him the door back into golfing in irrelevance. So, they're stuck trying to please voters who want nothing to do with Trump and Trump, who wants everything to be about him.
It is the use of words “golfing in irrelevance” in describing the notorious golf cheat that struck me as an unusually clever use of words.
Golfing is a gerund used to describe the act of playing golfing. It is sometimes used in a sentence referring to a place, for example “I spent the summer golfing on Cape Cod.” Author Sarah K. Burris uses the word “irrelevance” both to mean the state of being irrelevant and as if it is actually a place.
Perhaps Mar a Lago should be renamed Irrelevance.
Mar a Lago may even become synonymous with irrelevance.
Let’s hope it will become Trump’s Elba, his Villa dei Mulini.
