TheBlaze Lamely Censors The Word ‘Jackass’

Since when is the word “jackass” so offensive that it is worthy of being shielded from our delicate sensibilities?

I mean, what kind of jackass over at TheBlaze thought it necessary to block readers from seeing an actual word said by U.S. politician?

In this case, it was Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a presidential candidate, no less, who called Donald Trump a “jackass” on CNN’s “Out Front” Monday night.

And no, there were no bleeps.

Trump paid Graham back with interest — during a speech Tuesday in South Carolina, he gave out Graham’s cell phone number.

The number was confirmed as really belonging to Graham.

Even TheBlaze‘s url refuses to use the word “jackass.”

Instead, it’s “jacka.”
