Dictionary.com's Word of the Year ... IS!

Dictionary.com just released their Word of the Year for 2017.  They're the second place to reveal their pick . . . Collins Dictionary announced their choice a few weeks ago.

And, like you'd expect, we're two-for-two on words related to the current political situation in this country.

Collins Dictionary went with "fake news."  And now Dictionary.com's Word of the Year is . . . "complicit."  The definition is, quote, "Choosing to be involved in an illegal or questionable act, especially with others."

They say the searches for complicit have had three jumps this year:

Once after an "SNL" sketch with a commercial parody advertising a perfume by Ivanka Trump called "Complicit" . . . once when Ivanka said she didn't know what it meant to be "complicit" . . .

And once after Senator Jeff Flake announced he wouldn't be running for another term because he didn't want to be complicit with what the president is doing.
