Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “wear thin” and it is a phrase meaning “(feeling, explanation, activity & etc.) to become weaker; to become less effective; to become out-of-date or less popular; to become less convincing; to become less acceptable (gradually)”.
Example Sentence: The pandemic is affecting people. And Trump’s act had worn thin. People want to be soothed for a bit. Biden is nothing else if not soothing.
