Shoehorned

Shoehorned fits into the 3freewordsaday Words Heard category. It is not a word that was first heard today; but it was heard today on CNN in an appropriately descriptive use. The news host referred to the “pork” slipped into the new resolution as having been shoehorned.

To shoehorn something is to “force to be included or admitted <shoehorned irrelevant arguments into his essay>.” TRANSITIVE VERB–Merriam-Webster.com
