James Comey Uses The Word "Nauseous" -- And The 'Net Goes Nuts


Is nauseous a common word? Maybe not...

FBI Director James Comey told a Senate committee Wednesday he stands behind his letter that shook up the final days of last year's presidential election — and he would do it again.

Still, he said his decision to tell Congress that the FBI had found new emails that could be relevant to Hillary Clinton's private email server was not an easy one.

"This was terrible. It makes me mildly nauseous to think we might have had some impact on the election," Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I would make the same decision."

Merriam-Webster reports that searches for "nauseous" spiked 4,793 percent after Comey used the word during his testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Which leads me to ask -- did you have to google nauseous? Is it a generational thing?
