def cleanText (text, censorList) :
#your function should replace all censored words in the text with ****
pass #replace 'pass' with your function content

theText = "A baby donkey is called an ass not an idiot!"
theCensorList = ["ass","idiot"]

print(cleanText(theText, theCensorList))
#output should be "A baby donkey is called an **** not an ****!"

What I have tried:

HINT: You can create a loop that goes though all words in the censorList, for each censored word, replace every occurence of that word in your text with ****

Where are you stuck? No one is going to do it all for you.

While we are more than willing to help those that are stuck, that doesn't mean that we are here to do it all for you! We can't do all the work, you are either getting paid for this, or it's part of your grades and it wouldn't be at all fair for us to do it all for you.

So we need you to do the work, and we will help you when you get stuck. That doesn't mean we will give you a step by step solution you can hand in!
Start by explaining where you are at the moment, and what the next step in the process is. Then tell us what you have tried to get that next step working, and what happened when you did.
Just posting your homework question isn't going to get you anywhere.
