Nothing is off the limits

This one comes from the Washington Post. Alyssa Farah, a former White House official and friend of Cassidy Hutchison, said the following: “When you speak out against Trump, a whole army of MAGA comes after you. They try to indict your character, professionalism — nothing is off the limits.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/06/30/how-trump-world-pressures-witnesses-deny-his-possible-wrongdoing/

This is a congruent conflation of “off the table” and “off limits”, both meaning restricted or no longer available. A tip of the hat to Barry Eigen for spotting this one and sending it in.

    Conflation seems to be their greatest strength!
