    [Middle English burnen, from Old English beornan, to be on fire, and from bærnan, to set on fire.]

    Synonyms: burn, scorch, singe, sear, char, parch. These verbs mean to injure or alter by means of intense heat or flames. Burn, the most general, applies to the effects of exposure to a source of heat or to something that can produce a similar effect: burned the rug with a cigarette; left the onions on the stove and burned them; burned my fingers by handling dry ice. Scorch usually refers to contact with flame or heated metal and involves superficial burning that discolors or damages the texture of something: afraid that the iron might scorch the sheet; trees that were scorched in a forest fire. Singe specifies superficial burning by brief exposure to flame and especially the deliberate removal of projections such as bristles or feathers from a carcass, such as a plucked fowl, before cooking: a grease fire that singed my eyelashes; singed the Thanksgiving turkey, then roasted it. Sear applies to surface burning of organic tissue, as by branding or cauterizing: Sear the lamb over high heat before lowering the flame and adding liquid. To char is most often to reduce a substance to carbon or charcoal by means of fire: The timbers of the house were charred by the raging fire. Parch in this sense emphasizes the drying and often fissuring of a surface from exposure to flame, the sun, or hot wind: The torrid rays of the sun parched the soil.

    Trump ran out of personal thugs and sent a woman to attack a reporter.

    Deplorable.

    Trump got mad that his caravan scam didn't work and he lost the house. His thugs realized he was destine for prison and they bailed on him. His next move will be to send Sarah into the press gaggle with a baseball bat.

    re #21 & mm #23
    I don't mean to ignore you, or be dismissive of your accusation.
    Perhaps I'm currently unaware that you're absolutely 100% correct.
    I'll never know until / unless someone, perhaps one or both of you will:

    a) concisely quote the few words you take issue with

    b) post your ostensibly logical justification for pretending I'm burned.

    But so far, yours is not merely an unsubstantiated allegation, it's not even comprehensible.

    If you'll make a persuasive case, I'll eagerly own up to it.
    Right now, I have no idea what you base your claim on.

    Trump told them the rules. ONE question each. Acosta didn't think those rules were for him so made an ass of himself and pushed Trump with more questions. Trump had his rules and he was under no obligation to put up with Acosta's tantrum. He got what he deserved.

    It was her JOB to take the mic to each reporter for questions. Why do you lie so much?
    Do you even care how stupid you sound? SMH...…..

    My Momma taught me not to snatch objects from the grasp of others.

    Her job may have been to transport the mic from one reporter to the next. I doubt there's anything in her job description about being physically combative & aggressive with members of the 4th.

    And it's his job to ask Trump questions whether he likes them or not. Trump and his supporters are hiding behind this woman in order to avoid the questions he asked.

    Trump answered many questions during this press session so your position on its face is a lie. numerous news stories attest to the length and rambling nature of this press conference. Meanwhile it's a stupid notion to present the thought that he was hiding behind this woman when the woman clearly had nothing to do with the matter other than move a microphone from one person to another.

    I believe you sincerely believe that.
    More accurately what Trump provided was replies, rather than answers.
    Trump's comments are frequently quite circular.

    Trump's comment at the G7 on why Russia should be included was:
    - Russia should be here because Putin deserves a place at the table. -

    I know he has his finger on the button.
    But I still can't take President Trump seriously. He's not presidential.
