Re: Trump Fires Entire Council on HIV/AIDS With No Explanation


Anxiety is you quibbling about whether non-paid personel can be fired or any other word that means dismissed.

I can't find anything where being fired that being paid is a consideration, although it is presumed. If I was 'let go'in such a prestigious position and giving my time, I would consider myself 'fired' and the so called appropriate vocabulary is meaningless, especially when the leader of this country can't speak 3rd grade English.

Still have to 'Hired' to be 'Fired'. Not in a job as a employee not a employed person and cannot be 'Fired' Use semantics all you wish but the point is simple and well advanced from the third grade philosophies extrapolated here.

So tell us why you're hung up on what is probably the single most unimportant word in the entire article.

It is a way of avoiding considering why the people were dismissed.

I think it's because fires have something to do with climate change.

fired is a slang term.


the meaning came about, when villages disliked residence, they would burn their homes down to get rid of them- -- hence "fired". They were no longer welcomed.

Anyway, interns aren't hired and they get fired. so i don't see your point. dismissed, discharged, fired it all means the same thing.

If you look into the etymology of 'being fired' it seems to come from the idea of discharging (firing) a gun.

to fire/discharge/ forcibly eject/ throw out

so it seems unlikely that being 'hired' is a necessary precondition to being 'fired'

In this particular case however (regardless of any actually etymology) the use of 'fired' is probably a reference to "The apprentice" in which Mr Trump would tell prospective employees "You're fired"


Although notice that even in this case those being 'fired' by Trump are not actually employed by him
