READ: Dictionary.com Tweets: ‘Palilogy Is a Word That Describes the Technique of Repeating a Word or Phrase for Emphasis’

After President Donald Trump’s ascension to the most powerful position in the world, some unexpected figures have come to be mastheads of a collection of Trump critics known as “the resistance.”

Among these is Dictionary.com, which continued on Thursday a long tradition of trolling Trump using his favorite medium: Twitter.

It started when the President went on a common Twitter tirade decrying the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election:

If you thought “Russia, Russia, Russia!” sounded familiar, Dictionary.com did as well:

The website defined the word “Palilogy,” using the classic television character Jan Brady of The Brady Bunch lamenting the attention given to her older sister with a now-famous phrase: “Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!”

Twitter wasn’t ready.

It’s also far from the first time Dictionary.com has trolled the president.

When Donald Trump spelled “collusion” as “collussion,” the site tweeted this:

And it was quick to respond when Trump said people of faith led the abolition of civil rights.

And when Trump sided with Putin over his own intelligence officials at the infamous Helsinki summit, they threw shade again.

If you look up “Resistance” in the dictionary, you just might find a picture of Dictionary.com.
