Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

Pardon one offense, and you encourage the commission of many.
While technically I did not commit a crime, an impeachable offense... these are legalisms, as far as the handling of this matter is concerned it was so botched up, I made so many bad judgments. The worst ones, mistakes of the heart, rather than the head. But let me say, a man in that top job - he's got to have a heart, but his head must always rule his heart.
I've analyzed the best I can ... and I have not found an impeachable offense, and therefore resignation is not an acceptable course.
An ardent supporter of the hometown team should go to a game prepared to take offense, no matter what happens.
Billy Bush should n’t be fired. Billy Bush, as a reporter, sometimes plays to the interviewee and made a bad call in going too far with what everyone is calling ‘ locker room talk,' Davis said. Billy Bush’s going to get a rough break here. There’s no excuse for the aggressive rape talk. billy Bush offense isn't what Billy Bush observed Trump saying. Billy Bush offense's that Billy Bush didn't throw Donald Trump under the bus once Billy Bush decided to run. Billy Bush offense's what the media wanted Billy Bush to do, Gainor said. Since Billy Bush didn't, Billy Bush time there is over. I'm sure network execs could go through thousands of hours of tape and destroy tons of other celebrity careers for the awful things they say and do. Only they won't. Because they only want to get Donald Trump because Donald Trump's running as a Republican. Billy Bush is collateral damage.
