"But he's being ugly to us!!" (Aka why it's futile to argue with a child)

A few moments ago, we were eating dinner as a family. After we were nearly through with the meal, I turned to my wife and made a comment along the lines of "Omg, did you hear what Trump said today in NC?? He told someone there to 'Have a good time...'". This comment was especially infuriating because we lived in Eastern NC for years and have friends that still live there and are being actively affected by the storm and the flooding.

So, our keen eared 9yo old is apparently listening in to our conversation and pipes up "Ugh..can't stand Tonald Dump! I mean it's in his name...Trump the dump should be flushed".

Because we live in an area with a lot of red sentiment, we do our best to encourage our kids to restrain from voicing their disdain of Trump to their classmates....but my wife and I couldn't restrain our laughter at this comment. I looked at our son and said "Well, bud, try not to be ugly with your comments".

"But dad? Why?? He's being ugly to us!!"

Well damn, I can't exactly argue with that logic!
