英会話ブログ その813      "Sick and Tired" (1)

2016/09/03

I am "sick and tired" of Donald Trump and American politics !  How about you ?  I am also sick and tire of watching the "Tokudane" morning show in the morning.  "Same old, same old" right ?  Same old means, "nothing's new".

Let's examine the first idiom I used in this blog, which is also the title: "Sick and Tired".  This is an easy one to understand when you check out its usage in the context of the two opening sentences.  

Donald Trump, who represents all that is bad about America, is in the news 24/7.  Twenty four / seven means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  He wants to be the president of the United States, however, Hillary Clinton has called him a "political arsonist".  Trump is burning down systemized politics.                                              (V.C)
