    You think they'd dissect the possible implications of what he meant by "Let's Make American Great, Again."
    And not trash-talking in fancy talk :P
    Oh non, LOLZ 'n TWEETZ.
    He's appealing to the masses.
    Update yer sta-tist-tist-ist-st-ics.
    Casual v. Formal.
    Then, he isn't relatable enough.
    You don't get this complex.

    The hating lingustic Ph.D seems to totally miss the fact that Trump gets his message through every time. The way he speaks is developed to nail messages like a slogan. Trump is a master of this art.

    We didn't vote for him because of his launguage skills or lack of them. We know what he's saying.
    He's open all tells us what is happening more so than any other President. He's no more narcissistic than Obama. Trump is a good President and he cares about Americans. Don't be so critical and smug about education, speech and the rest. We know who Trump is and we like him. You people need to improve yourselves before you criticize others.

    There will always be a segment of humanity who will ever be simple minded peasants. I believe it's generational dNA that lingers regardless of where one is in the world. It's a resistance to learning anything more than what you think you know to be true, regardless of any evidence to the contrary. People would rather believe stories and rumors than use logic and reason to think. These people are still creating the worlds problems.

    Big problem, there are so many lost american that still follow him because what comes up come out. This President behavior doesn't have anything to do with race he's just not a good example of a leader. There has never been a President in history that has gotten away with all the things he has. Our country is the laughing stock of the world, if this was Obama he would have been impeached his first year. God don't like ugly.!!!!! I don't want him to get impeached because VP Pence is worst because he's a real politician. Trump wants to build this wall so bad to keep others out but he goes to the Philippines and build a large tower there I don't get it. He only wanted to change the heath care reform only because it was named Obama care. I want to keep going but I know no one is listening.

    reporters. trump tactics on excessive talking or limited actions: dont
    say to much to give them anything to bite on to drag out his answers.
    therefore he gives incoherent answers or actions. If ol bonespurs was
    alone in the room with reporters and bombarded by questions trump would
    crumble. Trump incomprehensible view of doing a presidential job just

    PRESIDENTS SHOULD KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE AND CHARACTER TRAITS. IT IS A SKILL WHICH IS DEVELOPED OVER A LIFE TIME. TRUMP HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DOMINATE CHARACTER BASED ON HIS FATHER MONEY IN THE BEGINNING THEN HIS OWN. HE DEVELOPED HIS SKILLS AS A DICTATOR. WHEN YOU HAVE ALL THE MONEY AND POWER PEOPLE DO AS YOU TELL THEM TOO. THIS DOES NOT WORK IN A DEMOCRACY. WHEN TRUMPS MOUTH OPEN IT IS FULL OF INSULTS FOR THE PEOPLE HE IS SUPPOSE TO BE WORKING WITH. WHO IS GOING TO WORK WITH SOMEONE WHO INSULTS YOU ALL THE TIME. " TIME FOR THIS FOOL TO GO AND FIND A REAL PRESIDENT WITH THE RIGHT SKILL SET"

    Trump has the vocabulary of a 10 year old with the same logic paths.He was never disciplined as a child and never got approval from his father.He has Mommy issues and is afraid of Nancy Polosi because she corrects his behaviors.
    He constantly runs his cons and his rabid cult followers are willfully ignorant

    I disagree with the majority of the comments on this thread. Linguistics, shminglistics! The fact that he speaks to regular people like a regular person to me is refreshing. He doesn't speak in a way that puts him above others. In other words he is not a politician. Obama was a political puppet and could not speak well from the heart. Like an actor he only spoke from a teleprompter and like he was giving a sermon which I found annoying.

    How did only 5 million people view this video, yet 8 million people disliked it? Perhaps therein lies the problem with Trumpians-they don’t even allow the possibility of being educated on this subject; the subject of their Dear Leader. They’d rather go down with the ship. SAD.

    I was alarmed at Trumps recent statement "This will never be a socialist country". Also, I was "deeply saddened" (as our boring leaders always say after someone dies and they're really glad about it) to hear him say our military needs to be beefed up more. And your clueless neighbors eat this stuff up. Does anyone know how much we spend on the military? What a sad, sad state of affairs. But Trumps quirks are the least of our problems.

Point being, he's nothing abnormal, nothing special. He speaks like many Americans who vote for him. He's just not what people EXPECT from a president.

    I watched this when it actually aired and I was horrified because this man gave me the correct words in describing this type of talking from DJT that I had NO words for. All I knew was that this man was either demented or illiterate. I took care of people with Alzheimers and Dementia and it has been extremely hard for me to tell the difference most times. To believe that some in this country help to elect this man. Watching this again almost a year later, especially when this man just declared a National Emergency, scares me shitless. This man makes me pretty much loathe the Republican crime organization. How any decent and self respecting patriot and citizen could be a Republican is beyond comprehension for me, just like this man and his more than pedestrian way of speaking. A pig is smarter and more capable of running this country than THIS man.

    never grew up, never paid attention while in school, defensive due to no sense of identity, insecure. His bullying is a product of "feeling less than", so he lashes out to feel equal or even superior. Inflating his terms and lying while talking is an attempt to enhance his position, overwhelm his audience, impress and control no matter what the cost, he feels safe behind his wall, his facade. Pitiful and dangerous

    "The intersection between narcissism and linguistics" that often intersects with pathological lying, and room temperature IQ. Trump's a mess. I enjoyed hearing from Mr. McWhorter. Nice choice. Quite apart from presenting a unique case study, I'd wager that Trump has to drive the professor nuts. After all, Trump is not merely an example of a linguistic adolescent, he's also the president. I feel his pain. Believe me. Believe me.

    Cognitive Impairment. His language/speech deficit is a symptom. If you have watched old videos & documentaries (clips within them decades ago) in which he is speaking, his vocabulary pool was much larger. Today he uses "filler words" and abruptly switches content, cuts off as he gets frustrated, no filter etc. He is not someone I would choose to know personally because he has a lot of 'bad' energy regardless. Though I feel some empathy towards his family with the awareness of his communication skills deficit as well as highly inappropriate behaviors & lack of inhibition to reflect signs & symptoms of brain disease-cognitive impairment, stage 1 or 2 dementia. It still baffles me how he became our president...
