WHY? Dictionary.com Gets Political, Bashes VP Mike Pence

Politics has infested everything — TV sitcoms, award shows (even the ESPYs), NFL football, everything.

And now, websites that just help the spelling-impaired figure out how to spell a word have joined the ranks of the hyper-politicized.

When President Trump invited a slew of Republicans over to the White House on Wednesday to celebrate the passage of the GOP's massive tax-cut bill, a select few made remarks to the crowd. Among them was Vice President Mike Pence, who praised Trump's efforts to push the bill through a reluctant Congress.

But the uber-liberal Washington Post saw fit to mock Pence (although you'll be shocked to hear the paper never did the same with perennial suckup Joe Biden).

OK, so that's predictable. But here's where it gets weird. Dictionary.com decided to jump into the fray.

The link defined "sycophant," as "a self-seeking, servile flatterer; fawning parasite."

Why so much hate, Dictionary.com?

Now, Pence — that horrible human being — was in Afghanistan with U.S. troops when the tweet went out, so others came to his defense.

The sycophants in the Obama White House put Pence to shame — but, of course, The Chosen One did vow when elected that "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." When he left office, the liberal media had to have their lips surgically removed from Obama's tuchus.

Others vowed to find a new website.
