House Republicans submitted a list of words they don't want House Democrats to use in describing President Donald Trump and his alleged behavior -- and social media users rained scorn on them.


Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) posted a photo of the banned word list, which includes "obstruction of justice" and "con man," ahead of former White House counsel John Dean's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

The hearing is titled "Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes."

Other Twitter users piled on.
