On Friday, it seems a lot of people learned a new word of the day: Schadenfreude.
Schadenfreude means "enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others."
Merriam-Webster reported that it saw a huge spike, a 30,500% spike to be exact, on its website Friday after reports came out that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania had tested positive for COVID-19.
