Language Expert: Donald Trump’s Way of Speaking is ‘Oddly Adolescent’

"Donald Trump is linguistically, unadorned." - Linguistics professor John McWhorter at Columbia University


…from MSNBC

[ Editor’s Note: This theme about Trump’s ‘strange communication style’ has been visited many times before, but the earlier interviews I remember were with shrinks, with the main theme being how crazy he was and what some of the tipoffs were, with his speech mannerisms on the list.

As for the crazy part, who else but Trump would have been carrying his Westchester golf course on the books valued at $15 million, and then trying to bust the chops of the county tax commissioners with his saying he should only have to pay property taxes on $1.4 million. And he does this with his company already in court for tax evasion in New York.

But it gets better. In the middle of this bruha another valuation pops up, signature and all, with Trump putting a $50 million value on it. Any lawyer that works for Trump and does not insist on being paid in advance, should also have a mental examination.

Professor John McWhorter is a linguistics expert and this whole interview is a deep dive into that part of Trump’s personality.

At this stage of the game with Trump there are fewer and fewer story topics about him that are new, as he might be the most scrutinized former head of state on the planet right now… Jim W. Dean ]

    • Ferdinand, I totally agree. The fact that he he’s been able to skate around prosecution for his many crimes in the Southern District of New York is proof enough that he is still the Teflon Don. Ultimately, though, he can always skate to Israel where Likud can set him up on Trump Heights in the Golan. There he can play golf and diddle little boys and girls until he croaks. Ominously, Tel Megiddo is right down the road from there and his crazy Christian Zionist followers have a collective hard-on for Armageddon.
