Top definition
An act of manipulative or false-emotion put on in order to achieve the desired reaction from others, usually sympathy.

Unlike its near-opposite, a kneejerk, which is a re-action to an action, the tearjerk is an initiated action in itself.
Hitlary sure put on that tearjerk act for the New Hampshire Primary Elections, just when everyone said she was seen as lacking emotion.
