1. Now that we've broken that barrier,

maybe they could use the word "lie" more frequently.

28. Ah, but "shit" WAS. Numero Uno, as I recall.

So I suppose all derivatives must be included. But I'm not going to spoil their fun. I think some of them are halfway ENJOYING the opportunity to say "shit" on live TV.

And I still agree that "tits" doesn't even belong on the list.

5. Wow - neither did I! But I'm glad they did.

Maybe it's a sign of how angry and frustrated people are becoming. The press and MSM needs to stop pussy footing around the vile words that tumble out of that narcissistic misanthrope's mouth, and start documenting them, in real time.

25. Pussyfooting means treading softly like a cat. Always has ...

Trump dragged the secondary meaning out of the gutter and into our living rooms, and here we are.

Nonetheless, pull a Mother Goose volume off your children's bookshelf and find:

1). Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

2). Ding-dong bell, pussy's in the well.
Who put her in? Little Tommy Green.
Who pulled her out? Little Bobby Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussycat,
Who never did him any harm,
But killed the mice in Father's barn.

6. Just saw this exact same thing on Family Guy

"Didn't know you could say 'bang your wife' on TV"

When Trump has out done Family Guy we have achieved a new level of hell.

8. Cable has different rules. The real obscenity is anything that comes out of the mouth

of the active traitor in the WH.

The vile pile of human dung in the WH who is ACTIVELY engaged in TREASON as we speak working WITH Putin to hack our democracy.

This country would be burned to the GROUND if a democrat did this and the D party did nothing, the R party would SEE to it!

23. Exactly!

I was 7 or 8 years of age and had a habit of exclaiming "shoot" whenever I felt the need. Once, at a family gathering of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends, I saw the need for my little exclamation. However, it didn't quite come out that way. Well, before I could gargle out a "sorry", mom had marched this little mister to the sink and in front of astonished family, proceeded to introduce my little ivories to a bar of Ivory. Gotta say, I never forgot the melody of that Proctor and Gamble tune.

42. I came from a strict evangelical family

You know, like the kind of people who voted overwhelmingly for the shithole in chief.

And we would get in trouble for even using words like shoot, heck, and dang. Because they were simply covers for their more crude meanings.

In fact, if you have tape of it, you can run that, too.

Besides, cable stations have no such rules.

21. As he does with IQ averages...

...Trump lowers the bar wherever he goes.

There was no way his presidency wasn't going to make our discourse meaner and less intelligent.

2018 will probably see more common use of such terms as "bestiality," "fuckstick," and "atomic sea beasts."

The FCC doesn’t have a mandate over cable. I really WAS surprised to hear it on NPR this morning, however.

FCC rules really only apply to over the air broadcast stations. Like AM, FM and Television stations.

Broadcast not so much. Different rules.
Over the air is not allowed to have "swear" words. Cable is not regulated that way.
