People are loose with language these days. Some-times it's mere malapropisms, using a word that sounds like the proper word but whose meaning is comically off base.

The current occupant of the White House has been notorious for this activity. Critics suspect this reflects lazy thinking or poor language skills, in spite of a Yale education. Others, more sympathetic, just let it pass, saying a few syntactical errors or misused adjectives are too superficial to take seriously.
