Random Sequence: exsufflicate

"Exchange me for a goat,
When I shall turn the business of my soul
To such exsufflicate and blown surmises,
Matching thy inference."
--William Shakespeare, Othello, Act III, Scene 3

exsufflicate (adjective) = puffed up, windy, inflated

This word makes me think of a certain presidential candidate currently generating much media blather.
