Leading the helmPosted: March 31, 2021
Rep. Joe Neguse (D – CO) appeared on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell”, discussing the Boulder mass shooting. During the discussion on the possiblity of the U.S. instituting stricter gun control laws, Neguse said it is possible “now with President Joe Biden leading the helm”. This is a congruent conflation of “leading the charge” and “taking the helm”, both meaning to become the leader of something. A tip of the hat to Mike Kovacs who heard this CCC (classic congruent conflation) and sent it in!
