This week's word in the news: SUPERIMPOSE

DEFINITION:
To lay or place (something) on or over something else.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
Harris praised the Clinton campaign's use of Snapchat, a youth-oriented social media platform that campaign staffers have used to troll Republican critics -- in one case using the app's face-swapping feature to superimpose on Trump the face of Ronald Reagan, who as California governor legalized abortion, as Trump declared that women should be punished for getting abortions.
