Left explodes in Twitter meltdown over Trump admin list of 7 banned words (video)


During a briefing Thursday at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, senior CDC officials who oversee the budget gave a list of seven terms that would no longer be used on official documents relating to next year’s budget.

According to a Washington Post report Friday evening, the list of terms to be avoided are:

  • Diversity
  • Transgender
  • Fetus
  • Vulnerable
  • Entitlement
  • Evidence-based
  • Science-based

Analysts were given more in-depth suggested wording to use for some terms. For example, instead of “science-based” or “evidence-based,” the suggested phrase to be used is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”

The Trump administration has made several significant changes in how certain issues are addressed, abandoning the more liberal terms previously used by the Obama administration.

Matt Lloyd, spokesman for the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees the CDC, told the Washington Post that “HHS strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions.”

Other departments adopting changing in wording include the Justice Department, Education Department, and Housing and Urban Development.

The Washington Post noted that HHS has dropped questions in two surveys of elderly people about sexual orientation and gender identity, and has removed data about LGBT Americans from its website.

Some analysts attending the meeting were reportedly shocked, with one “longtime CDC analyst” saying, “In my experience, we’ve never had any pushback from an ideological standpoint.”

The analyst claimed there would be a massive pushback from scientists at CDC. “Our subject matter experts will not lay down quietly – this hasn’t trickled down to them yet.”

Liberals on the left are outraged over the removal of their terms from government documents, and Twitter has been set ablaze with their condemnation of the new policy.

House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted her outrage:

DANGER! Trump Admin is going further down a dangerous and un-American path of word and thought control. @POTUS has no respect for and has banned words including: “vulnerable”, “diversity”,  “transgender”, “evidence-based”, “science-based”.

The National Center for Transgender Equality tweeted, “You can try to ban the word #transgender, but we will not be silenced.”

Mara Keisling, executive director for the group, said in a statement, ““To pretend and insist that transgender people do not exist, and to allow this lie to infect public health research and prevention is irrational and very dangerous.”
