What is a Word for....?

a statement or a question where the person (making the statement or asking the question) attempts to conspicuously slide in a second point or subject???

Ex. What are you going to feed your fat cat for dinner?

The main point is asking what you are feeding your cat for dinner. The second point was "slid in" (for lack of better words) and was stating that your cat is fat.

Ex2. What classes are you going to sign up for next semester since you are failing?

Main subject asks what classes you're going to sign up for. Second point that was conspicuously slid in was the asker stating that you are failing.

What's a word for this kind of statement or question?

Or perhaps what's this type of situation called?

    I would use "Insidious".

    As in, "I don't appreciate your insidious insinuations."

    Source(s): I like alliterations, alright!
