Russia, Ukraine, the Middle East on the brink of bringing the unthinkable to the world and one word out of place in this pathetic snowflake culture that we've allowed to be created causes petulant protest. I sometimes wish I was prone to swearing because that's exactly what I want to do now. Get a grip! It's not the end of the world! It's a word spoken by someone generally acknowledged to be an old duffer - and it makes not one iota of difference to anything. Sheesh!
I think the gaffe was "Israeli team"
I did wonder if "team" meant much greater things in America than it does here - |I thought he said it because Hamas isnt a country.
and yes serious things demand serious language - all part of communication and lingistics. I was surprised to hear that Trump would say: " I am a President you mustnt speak to a President like that " - excuse me?
I ALMOST had a senior administrator sit on his desk and strum, " there has been a serious complaint made against you!" ning-a-ning-a-ning.
and I was aghast at the contrast between the actions and the words.
( what happened? oh it turned out he was forwarding the complaint of someone he had a private contractual relation with. He retired)
"We don't really want an old duffer that can't find the right words as leader of the free world"
It's not that long ago Biden was being praised for his tough speech on Israel. This "old duffer" has more energy than I have I would be willing to bet. He didn't have to travel halfway round the world - in part on a humanitarian mission for Palestine. People always miss out the bits that they don't want to see.
