Not only has Donald Trump's presidency been one of the most controversial presidencies in modern time, it has also been one of the most comedic.

The reality star - oh sorry, we meant President - and his staffers have said, done, and acted in some of the most outlandish ways. Ways so outlandish that they are inspiring entirely new words, portmanteaus, and phrases. The terms already existing in the English language just fail to capture the level of ridiculousness the American public has been given in the last ten months.

Below are some of the most popular new slang terms emerging from Trump's comedy of errors.

1. A small loan:

(noun) A sum of about one million dollars. You know the "small" amount Donald Trump said his father gave him a few decades ago to start his first business.

2. To Trump:

(verb) Meaning you aren't going to do much more than "run your mouth" and play golf, or some other sport not related to your job in anyway.

3. Scaramucci:

(noun) It's a time period of about ten days.

4. To Bannon:

(verb) To give oneself fellatio. Term originated from Anthony Scaramucci (short lived White House Communications Director) saying Trump's advisor Steve Bannon tries to suck his "own cock".

5. Pull a Trump:

(verb) To word vomit or speak without thinking about important matters (esp. at one's job), yet face no consequences.

6. Twittatorship:

(noun) Basically Donald Trump's whole presidency which involves things like him calling for people who disagree with him to be fired during his usual late night 140 character rant sessions.

7. Modern day presidential:

(adjective) To not be presidential or stately in anyway, but instead engage in Twitter fights with any and everyone. One who is "modern day presidential" also enjoys calling the mothers of protesters "bitches".

8. Broflake:

(noun) Usually a straight, Caucasian-American male offended by feminism or any form of ethnic protest because if it isn't about him or for his benefit , well then it's just b.s. This personality type is usually as a result of growing up unconsciously shielded from societal injustices by white, male privilege. Donald Trump and Mike Pence are the head broflakes in charge at present.

9. The Kellyanne Conway:

(noun) - To pull or do a Kellyanne Conway is to lie and present inaccuracies but disguise them as some sort of "alternative facts."

10. Trump years:

(noun) Aging in Trump years is the phenomenon where many Americans feel like they age one full year for every month Donald Trump is in power. Kind of like dog years but for humans.

11. Trump A.F.:

(adjective) It describes something which is similar to something Donald Trump has said or done . For example, if someone says "the blacks" have achieved nothing, aka have "nothing to lose", well that statement is Trump A.F.

12. Covfefe:

(noun) Basically a filler word for any word your fingers are too fat to type. In some circles it's a catch-all word for messing up.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
