word wednesday

This week’s word is lugubrious. It’s a great word that’s gotten recent play in the press.

1 : mournful
2 : dismal

Per the San Francisco Chronicle:

Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson called out President Donald Trump at soul singer Aretha Franklin’s funeral in an alliterative assault in response to the president saying that Franklin “worked for him.”

“You lugubrious leech, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist,” he said. “She ain’t work for you.”

OMG. The VOCABULARY. *swoon*
