Family friendly CNN anchor Jake Tapper runs one of the most respected news broadcasts on cable TV, but trying to keep things clean while covering the campaign speeches and rallies of 2016 is making it difficult.
Trump just said pussy in a speech & just got my vote

And it's only February. What words will political journalists be trying to figure out how to report to family audiences in October?

@jaketapper well Jake, the word "pussy" uncomfortably and suddenly comes to mind.

Looking forward to Fox coverage of pussy-gate momentarily

@jaketapper It's tough for parents who try and use campaigns as educational opportunities to explain away a lot of this behavior of"adults".

@jaketapper Using a game of charades might be the best route, followed by braille or sign language.

@jaketapper Hopefully Trump won't be around to say such words in October and PJs won't have this problem.

@jaketapper Well, since Bernie will be the nominee I'm going with any number of Yiddish words. Kvetch. Mensch. Chutzpah. Plotz. Tuchas.

@jaketapper that's the same questions many families in America will be trying to explain. Good thing we have time to come up with answer.

@jaketapper “slang” or “slur” for X

Those pastors inviting @realDonaldTrump to speak in their churches — might want to put his remarks on a 7-second delay.
