Grammar aficionado and politician Shashi Tharoor, who in all likelihood seems to have the Oxford dictionary byheart, posseting out words like ‘farrago’, ‘rodomontade’, ‘lacunae’ among many others making us fumble through the good old dictionary might be a naiveté when it comes to millennial dictionary. Comedian Hasan Minhaj, for the latest episode of his Netflix show, Patriot Act, tests Shashi Tharoor’s knowledge in millennial vocabulary and the video is just priceless watching the verbose politician at a loss of words.
“You seem to know a lot of words, I wanna test you of how deep your vocabulary is,” Hasan tells the MP in the video. The comedian then asks Tharoor to spell and define millennial internet terms like ‘thicc’, ‘fleek’ and 'snacc".

While this time, it is Mr. Tharoor getting school, Tharoorians are all in praise the politician and for being a good sport.
