LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Tim Young
The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Tim Young discussed CBS Sunday Morning’s desire to completely dismantle and eliminate the term “snowflake” Monday evening.
The common phrase “snowflake,” which both sides of the aisle used repeatedly during the 2016 presidential election, was originally broken down by CBS contributor Faith Salie. Salie proceeded to spout a staggering amount of puns regarding the term “snowflake,” then asked for the turn of phrase to be entirely eliminated from people’s vocabulary.
“So to those on the right and the left, enough with ‘snowflake.’ It’s not a cool insult,” Salie said. “‘Snowflake’ reminds us how much we need climate change … in politics.”
