Language Expert: Donald Trump's Way Of Speaking Is 'Oddly Adolescent' | The 11th Hour | MSNBC




  • Msnbc is a pathetic joke...

  • Whatever he talks like, it's a lot better than trying to stifle free speech through "words that hurt" weakness.... Trump may say bad things, but, they are true bad things...

  • I wonder about the people who works for him, the people who are standing behind him when you see him on the news. Most of them are vastly more educated than their Commander-in-Chief, so they should know better--that they're listening to someone who lacks the intelligence of their 7 year old child or grandchild; yet their facial expressions belies little of this. Therefore, I can only surmise 3 things they would belie their "type", and justify their support of this maniac: 1) The Savior--I know he's unqualified for office, but this is the reality; and I'm here to protect the country from this fool; 2) The Opportunist-I'm just doing my job. I don't care if the President is a fool or not, I'm only looking out for me; or me and my family, that is; 3)The Fool--He's "The Greatest!!!"

  • Sadly, I must agree although I support him. Trump's personality has always struck me as classical "frat boy". That does not in any way disqualify him, but it does explain his seeming inability to rise above the common trash that makes up most of the American population.

  • Attention my fellow Americans: I don't care if you love Trump, or despise him. I don't care if you agree with his policies or not. I really don't. I'm not a Trump fan, but at the same time, I never 'bash' Trump or his supporters. I understand that there are a wide multitude of reasons why some may like or 'prefer' Trump over other candidates or parties. Not all Trump supporters can or should be lumped together as being all this or that... Having said that, I'd like to ask Trump supporters to consider one thing....something that has nothing to do with Trump's policies... Can we not all agree that Trump's PERSONALITY....not his policies...but that his PERSONALITY is extremely problematic, especially for someone who is in the position of Leader of the United States? There is no denying he is INdecisive and wishy-washy (constantly changing 'decisions' he may just the day before).... he is emotionally immature (look at all the time he spends on Twitter, essentially having 'temper tantrums').... he is a bully (anyone who is a member of the White House team and beyond, and where he has the power to fire them....if he has a big disagreement with that person, they will then be FIRED). Have we ever seen such a 'circus' or rotating cast of various White House employees? He is alienating. How many other world governments, and global organizations, are we no longer friends longer a part of? He is divisive. Has this country ever been so divided? So again...I implore any people who previously voted for Trump, to RETHINK very carefully. Do you really want to vote again, for such a person...for a personality type that is the MOST DANGEROUS to lead a country? Again, I have nothing against Republicans or Conservatives. You have your own reasons to vote the way you do. But Trump is and HAS been a danger, not only to this country, but the entire world order. An immature, insecure, alienating, divisive, vindictive bully is the LAST person you want as your leader. Thank you for your consideration!

    • Fooling the world, or at least part of the world, is what Trump is so very good at, mainly fooling people who are just as dumb as he is. Trump is what happens when someone who hasn't read a book in his life becomes the most listened-to orator in the world. People who actually analyze what he says know that the emperor wears no clothes, which is basically what this linguist is trying to demonstrate.

  • I will never understand how this man, Trump, could ever become the President of the United States. To me, it is quite clear to see that he has mental heal issues and, I am not saying that to be mean, because I suffer from mental health issues, I am saying that because he is running the United States when he should not. He also has no filter when he talks and I saw that in my own father after he had a stroke. I think a good health check and mental health check should be mandatory for all who run for President or any positions of power. Not just in the United States but Worldwide.
