Word Wednesday – “Trenchant”

“Trenchant is my word for WordWednesday.

Adjective: Vigorous, cutting, piercing, sharp, blistering, or incisive manner or style of communication.

Usage: I observed that the some of the Democratic candidates had a “Trenchant” communication style during the debate, last night.


Was there a candidate that you thought was more  “Trenchant than the others, at last night’s debate?
