2/11/17 (the) Elephant in the room

Agencia de traducción Buenos Aires

An obvious truth or fact, especially one regarded as embarrassing or undesirable, that is being intentionally ignored or left unaddressed.
Example:
We all sat sipping our tea quietly; no one wanting to bring up the elephant in the room about Joel’s expulsion from college.

A serious problem that everyone is aware of but which they ignore and choose not to mention.
Example:
The growing budget deficit is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about.
