The Elephant In The Room

I’ve always thought when people used the term  “Elephant in the room” they were referring to me. However, I learned that wasn’t necessarily the case and it’s actually an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.

Yesterday the elephant was unleashed on The Morning Blend. I’ve attached a link where you can watch the video. I would like to thank the person who thought it would be a great idea to stuff a fat girl in a director’s chair. Thank goodness the damn thing didn’t collapse during the interview. (Now that would have made for good television!)
