Claqueurs trending

Lookups for 'Claque' Spike Following Reports of Trump's CIA Visit - Trending 1/23/2017 | Merriam-Webster

Merriam-Webster is known as a descriptive, rather than prescriptive dictionary (another of which is the OED), my favorite kind. Descriptive dictionaries record how words are used, not necessarily how they should be used.

So I’m just imagining that someday, perhaps before too long, it will update its definition of the word, “trump."
