Emily Nussbaum, in her New Yorker article titled, Tragedy Plus time, states:
“It could be surprisingly hard to look at the phenomenon of Trump directly; the words bent; the meaning dissolved.”
That says it more clearly than I have ever heard. In the election, the words did bend. The meaning did dissolve. It was a FAILURE OF WORDS.
It looks like the battle may be joined. And, ultimately, it is over the meaning of words.
