A hospital in the United Kingdom banned the word “breast milk” from being used on the premises because it wasn’t inclusive enough for transgender people. They suggested adopting instead the more gender-neutral term “chest milk."
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was absolutely disgusted by the hospital’s actions, and tweeted his thoughts on the matter Wednesday afternoon.
“Orwellian: The words ‘breast milk’ are now forbidden," he tweeted.

Then it was Chris Cuomo’s turn to feel disgusted.
“Orwellian?” Cuomo said during his prime time show Wednesday. “Sir, you are at a trial that you're not even paying attention to, where you are saying that what happened didn't really happen because you don't want to have to deal with the reality. That, my brother, is Orwellian.”
Of course, there's a question as to whether this “trial” Cuomo speaks of - the one against President Donald Trump - is constitutional in the first place. Impeachment trials are supposed to be held for people in office, yet this one continues even after Trump has been out of office for nearly a month. That, dear Fredo, is “Orwellian.”
As if "chest milk" isn't gross enough, Cuomo then took it a step further.
“Breast milk? Why is that on your mind? Focus, Ted. If you got off Trump's teat a little bit, maybe you wouldn't be thinking about breast milk so much. Do your damn job," Cuomo ranted.
Right back at you, Fredo. As a journalist, you’ve always done a great job of nursing information to fit your agenda.
