    "I could care less"
    Stupid phrase which should be said as "I couldn't care less"

    "Live for today"
    When tomorrow is so close, we need to consider it at least a little bit.

    "Literally" e.g. "That was so funny it literally killed me"
    So what are you now, a zombie?

    "with all due respect"
    It's redundant, and basically means prepare to be disrespected.

    "Strong together"

    What? As apposed to "weak apart"?

    "Make America great again"

    Meaning we're not great now?

    Lets run it up the flag pole or put it on the back burner.
    Like it that you are thinking outside the box.

    Blue-sky thinking

    Only worth doing when lying on the grass in the countryside on a sunny day after several gin-and-tonics

    "It could be worse", or "others have it worse off than you".

    This is idiotic. Why should the fact that as bad as your situation is, that could get even worse, make you feel better?

    - "...but", the most malignant phrase, which completely distort previous statement.
    Typical for preachers and teachers: when they want to criticize someone or something, they must begin with few half-hearted commendations, and then follows BUT and waterfall of criticism.

    Lighter form of this degenerated way of speech is an accolade, which follows only after full-hearted objectons, often in form of unbiased quotations "people say", "it's widespread opinion that...", BUT.

    *
    - "It's not necessary to present our guest for to-night show..." followed by elaborate presentation.

    - I wouldn't make any comment on this subject, it is pretty much clear to everyone with at least certain amount of common sense, BUT I would like to "add"...
