Phrase, word of the week

Shithole is taking off nicely. "Deplorables" won't go away. We have "safe spaces". I was "triggered", "pussy hats". What have I missed?
"Cisgender"....another good, relatively new word.
Edited to add "dreamers".

3. More

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman" "Read my lips, no new taxes" "You can keep your Dr. You can keep your healthcare". "Vast right wing conspiracy"

This thread is an equal opportunity fun thread. Not meant to bash, just phrases and words that were used over and over in the press, and on the web.
