An antithesis, contradiction, in adjacent words: an oxymoron.

Here’s a test. See which of these you think is an oxymoron:

  • Reality Show
  • Casual Sex
  • Executive Order

If you’re slightly puritanical (as I am) you might think all three were oxymorons, especially since the source of the last one is Donald Trump.

If you’re Donald Trump, or a fan of The Donald, you probably find no contradiction in any of the above phrases.

Reality is a show. When you’re a Star, you can do that. Look what I just did to people waiting for airplanes.
