Evisceration

So far as I know, the word "eviscerate" means "remove the entrails of," a good idea if you want the carcass of a fish, elk or deer not to rot before you get it home. Modern readers might be forgiven for thinking that it actually means "criticize severely," as in "Michelle Obama Eviscerates Trump."

Even though I don't entirely disapprove of the sentiment, I'm pretty sure that's not really what she did. Besides, what would be the point - his carcass has already rotted from the head.
