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


.>>>WELCOME BACK TO FRIDAY NIGHT BROADCAST. LET’S AGREE FOR THE SAKE OF THE NEXT CONVERSATION THAT DONALD TRUMP USES THE MOST COLORFUL LANGUAGE OF ANY PRESIDENT AT LEAST IN THE MODERN ERA AND SAYS SOME OF THE MOST QUESTIONABLE THINGS. AND THAT IS WHERE OUR NEXT GUEST COMES IN. JOHN IS A LINGUIST. HE HAS A PH.D.. HE TEACHES AT COLUMBIA. HE TOO IS COLORFUL WHEN TALKING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP AND SPECIFICALLY HOW THIS PRESIDENT TALKS. THAT’S WHY WE TALKED ABOUT IT WITH JOHN McWHARTER.>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.>>THANK YOU, BRIAN.>>I’VE BEEN WANTING TO ASK YOU, WHAT IS YOUR LING WIS TICKS DEFINITION OF THIS PRESIDENT?>>DONALD TRUMP LINGUISTIKALLY IS UNADORNED. THIS IS THE BASICS. THIS IS WHAT LANGUAGE WAS UNDOUBTEDLY LIKE WHEN IT FIRST EMERGED AMONG PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T HAVE WRITING AND WERE FIRST GETTING THEIR VERBAL SEA LEGS. THIS IS WHERE IT STARTED. AND SO IN THAT WAY, AS IN SO MANY OTHERS, DONALD TRUMP IS AN ORIGINAL.>>THAT WOULD MEAN THAT EDUCATION AND SCHOOLING HAS HAD NO EFFECT ON HIS USE OF LANGUAGE WAJ. HE’S QUICK TO REMIEPD US HE WENT TO THE BEST SCHOOLS.>>AND LEARNED NOTHING IN THEM. HE SPEAKS LIKE ONE WHO PAID NO EDUCATION TO ONE OF THE GOALS OF EDUCATION WHICH IS TO REFINE OUR SPEECH. HE USES THOSE SAME WAYS OF SPEAKING IN WHAT MOST OF US USED TO CONSIDER FORMAL.>>I THINK IN YOUR LINE OF WORK THEY CALL IT A TAG. WHEN SOMETHING IS ADDED TO THE END OF A TRADITIONAL SENTENCE. SO OFTEN HE WILL TAG A SENTENCE WITH BELIEVE ME, BELIEVE ME, AND ENFORCER. SOMETHING HE THOUGHT WAS LACKING IN THE ORIGINAL SENTENCE.>>UH-HUH. IT’S THAT HE’S REINFORCING. ALSO HE’S USING ORAL SPEECH. WE’RE CHECKING TO SEE THAT THE OTHER PERSON WE’RE SAYING, THEY’RE IN THE SAME BOAT WE ARE. THAT’S WHAT “YOU KNOW IS, ” THINGS LIKE LOL IN TEXTING. HE DOES THAT, TOO, BUT ONCE AGAIN IT’S NOT IN TEXTING, HE’S DOING IT IN FORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH MEANS THAT HE NEVER LEAVES THE REALM OF THE CASUAL WHEN HE SPEAKS. WHICH IS UNLIKE EVEN SAY INDIGENOUS SOCIETIES WHERE THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS READ NG AND WRITING, THERE’S ALWAYS A HIGH AND LOW WAY OF TALKING. THE CHIEF DOESN’T GET UP AND RUN HIS MOUTH, OURS DOES.>>THERE’S A FRIEND OF OUR BROADCAST WHO WORKS FOR THE WALL STREET JOURNAL AND SAYS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP THERE ARE VISUAL AND AUDIO TELLS THAT HE PEPPERS HIS SPEECH WITH WHERE IF YOU KNOW WHAT’S COMING, YOU KNOW WHAT’S COMING. I WANT TO RUN A MONTAGE OF A TRUMP PHRASE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW. IN HIS READING OF IT. PEOPLE DON’T KNOW FOR DONALD TRUMP MEANS I JUST LEARNED. HERE’S THE EXAMPLE.>>FRANCE IS AMERICA’S FIRST AND OLDEST ALLY. OUR FIRST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, ABRAHAM LINCOLN RAN HIS FIRST F CAMPAIGN TORE PUBLIC OFFICE IN 1832. GREAT PRESIDENT. MOST PEOPLE DON’T EVEN KNOW HE WAS A REPUBLICAN, RIGHT? DOES ANYONE KNOW? LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THAT. PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE WE ARE A UNBELIEVABLY DIVIDED COUNTRY. I HAVE TO TELL YOU IT’S A UNBELIEVABLY COMPLEX SUBJECT. NOBODY KNEW HEALTH CARE COULD BE TO COMPLICATED.>>YOU’RE LAUGHING, WHY?>>THAT ASPECT OF HIM, I CAN’T SAY ANYTHING PARTICULARLY LINGUISTIC ABOUT IT. HE HAS THE NEED TO BE THE ALPHA MALE, THE IDEA MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS IS COMING FROM THE SAME WELL. THE IDEA IS HE’S ALWAYS THE ONE WHO’S ONE STEP AHEAD. IN THAT, FRANKLY, I DON’T FIND HIM LINGUISTICALLY CHALLENGED AS SOMEBODY WHO’S AUDIBLY ADOLESCENT FOR SOMEBODY WHO’S A SENIOR CITIZEN.>>WHAT ABOUT HIS OTHER FAVORITES, BELIEVE ME AND MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, OR MORE THAN WE’VE EVER SEEN BEFORE?>>SOME OF THAT IS BECAUSE THEY’RE REALLY ONLY — I’M SORRY TO SAY IT, BUT THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY THOUGHTS. AND SO OFTEN HE’S SPEAKING, AND I THINK HE RUNS OUT OF NEW INSIGHTS SO HE COVERS IT WITH THINGS LIKE BELIEVE ME OR IT CAN’T EVER BE THAT SOMETHING IS BAD, IT’S VERY BAD OR VERY, VERY BAD. THOSE ARE HIS EQUIVALENTS OF ROUGHLY, UM OR SCRATCHING HIS HEAD. I HI THE CONTENT OF WHAT HE’S SAYING IS SLIMMER THAN THE BULK OF THE VERBIAGE THAT HE SPUS OUT.>>HE’S 71 YEARS OLD NOW PRESIDENT IN A AGE OF INSTAND TAKENIOUS FACT CHECKING. HE’S NOT USED TO HIS AD-LIB BEING FACT CHECKED IN REAL TIME. DO YOU THINK HE’S BUMPED UP AGAINST THAT DYNAMIC.>>I DON’T THINK HE’LL CHANGE IN THAT WAY. HE SIMPLY HAS NO DEODORANT WEARING SUNDAY BEST WAY OF SPEAKING, THAT INCLUDES YOU HAVE TO HAVE A MORE RESPONSIBLE SENSE OF TRUTH THAN WHEN YOU’RE JUST BSING WITH YOUR PALS. WHEN WE SPEAK CASUALLY ALL THE TIME WE SAY THINGS WHERE MAYBE IF WE CHECKED UP ON IT THINGS MIGHT BE DIFFERENT. HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND IF YOU’RE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, YOU CAN’T JUST TALK. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE JUST TALKING BECAUSE YOU’RE MOVING YOUR MOUTH, BUT THERE’S THIS OTHER ART THAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO MASTER. HE WASN’T NRD THAT SORT OF THING IN SCHOOL. THIS IS SOMEBODY WHOS NUMBER TO THE ARTFUL. HE HAS A NARCOTIC JOY IN DISMISSAL AND BEE LITTLE MEANT RATHER THAN BUILDING AND DECORATING. AND SO HE’S GOING TO KEEP RUNNING UP AGAINST THE WALL. HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU’RE PRESIDENT YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THINGS WHICH ARE WHAT WE CALL TRUTH THINGS IN LINGUISTIC.>>ARE YOU JOINING THE INTERSECTION OF NARSY SISM AND LINGUISTIC.>>HE IS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN YOU GET SOMEBODY EXTREMELY ARTFUL AND I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY, CLINICALLY NARCISSISTIC AND TALKING ALL THE TIME TO US IN OUR HOUSES ABOUT SERIOUS THINGS. THAT’S WHAT’S SO STRIKING ABOUT LISTENING TO THIS PERSON TALK. WHAT’S UNFORTUNATE IS HOW MUCH WE’VE HAD TO LISTEN TO IT. I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD BE UNDER ANY IMPRESSION THAT IT’S GOING TO CHANGE BECAUSE WE’RE IN A INFORMAL ERA. IN A WAY, HE’S A PRODUCT OF SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN GOING ON SINCE THE MID ’60s AND IN MANY CASE IT’S IN GOOD WAYS. IN AMERICA YOU AND I WOULD HAVE HAD TO WEAR DID HE DOORA ASSEN SUITS EVEN ON HOT SUMMER DAYS, BUT SOMETHING ELSE THAT LEFT WAS YOU PUT SPEECH IN ITS SUNDAY BEST. ALL OF US FAKE IT TO A EXTENT. WE COULD HAVE PREDICTED SOMEBODY WOULD COME ALONG WHO WOULD ONLY TALK RATHER THAN SPEAK AND BECOME PRESIDERESIDENT OF THE U STATES. I DON’T THINK TRUMP IS GOING TO BE LAST IN THAT

  1. I don’t think we want to refine trumps “inborn proclivities” in any way bit should try to suppress them. Look at what he does when he acts by pure instinct.

  2. Voting stupidity out and voting smart technology in is where we need to be in this country. Andrew Yang can move us forward with the new technology needed! Stop voting for uneducated people!

  3. In my opinion his knowledge goes far beyond yours, however You are still young and well educated!

  4. This is sad, he communicates directly to a certain kind of people and there's seems to be a lot of them. His people say they like him because "he speaks plain English " but this man speaks on an adolescent level, that isn't even 12th grade level English much less college. So what does that say about our school system? Public and private? Sad, very sad. And the people that are actually educated, they will say they were just going along for the ride…like a bunch of hostile dancing monkeys.

  5. Sorry this is hilarious Dude Talked His Way To The The Presidency…Speaking the way he does and the smart people are simply talking about it.

  6. I have high IQ and advanced degrees and have also studied linguistics. My opinion of Trump is he has a very high level of memory (e.g. he seems to know a lot about a lot of people, probably thousands but also in regard to other matters.). He is also thinking on more than one "track" while speaking (most people only think on one track while thinking). This is like mental juggling and indicates wide bandwidth. Yes he has an ego, but it takes ego to become the most powerful man in the world as well as one of the 700th richest people on the planet. Criticize him for what you want, but the man is not stupid. Overall, he is an alpha male overachiever who cares about results vs. your opinion of him.

  7. Deviate pedo president no wonder he called Jeffery Epstein a terrific guy hopefully he will pay for his crimes but in America money don't talk it screams and he buys his way out of all his crimes but hopefully at some point he will be held accountable.

  8. TRUMP is brilliant…it is the rest of the fools out there that are trying to treash him. INSANITY personified! So many are so stupid and are treasonous jerks in this country…P. Trump stands for America and what we were founded to be! Most of the rest of you ARE NOT….YOU TREASOBUS UNBELIEVABLY MINDLESS TRAITORS! WE DO NOT WANT THE SOCIALISM OF THE LEFT AND THE DEMS OR THE COMMUNISM OF THE WORLD! WAKE UP!

  9. Of course. He can't even hold 10 minutes talking. In interviews his answers are exactly like those of a elementary school boy. Just like a little child.

  10. The only reason we are not in World War III is because his staff refuses to do the task they are assigned.

  11. It's a good thing that he speaks to the people, rather than make plans behind closed doors, even if some people don't like the way he speaks, he's getting things done, he hasn't killed anyone like other people we can mention,😫😫😫😫😫

  12. TRUMP HAS ALWAYS SAID HE WENT TO THE BEST SCHOOLS & THE SPEECH EXPERT SAYS, OBVIOUSLY HE LEARNED NOTHING IN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    OUCH! OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!!!! THIS IS THE PRIMARY REASON HE ALWAYS APPLAUDS HIMSELF!!! TRUMP IS IN DIRE NEED OF ATTENTION.

  13. New Federal law that bans news agencies from releasing the name of the shooter! If a news agency releases the name, their fine should be given to the victims family, that way the shooters will never become famous, like they are now! The only way news agencies should be allowed to release the shooter’s name is to have the consent from ALL the victims families! It’s called respect. https://youtu.be/r2WnWJGFZbE

    #respectthevictimsfamilies
    #InfamyLaw!

  14. Trump's language is far from colorful! He speaks like a second-grader, and not a very bright one at that. 'Unadorned' is a ridiculous adjective to use to describe his ignorant talk. In fact, his speaking reveals how little brain activity there is going on in his head.

  15. fake news!
    agenda of the dumb shameless democrats!
    you shitheads have done nothing great and have nothing to say but to complain and blame.
    power hungry whinning fuckheads!
    cry and cry again.
    MAGA2020!!!!!!

  16. Do these people know Trump has an IQ of 156,He has the Fouth highest IQ in our Presidency since Washington. I can't believe it but William Clinton came in Third,. JFK was second, and Jefferson was number one. Can't find Obama or Busch !!

  17. This program is called propaganda, to try to make you BELIEVE, what they are telling you! It is no different then when they where telling you that Russia and Trump Colluded ! There was not one ounce of truth in any of that, not one period. An you keep believing these buffones! THIS IS CALLED FAKE NEWS. AND TO MANY OF YOU ARE FALLING FOR IT ! WAKE UP OVER THERE ON THE LEFT ! THEY ARE FEEDING YOU CRAP AND NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR THE COUNTRY!

  18. I’m amazed that trumps knuckles don’t bleed when he walks, that’s how it advanced his language skills are…. actually I’m probably insulting Homoerctus, they at least could survive without help, can’t say that much for Trump! He does tend to grunt a lot more then our cave dwelling ancestors!!!

  19. Oh, get a life, losers! There isn't worse thing than educated communist. He got more brains than two of you together, twice. GTFOH! He is a billionaire and made it all the way to a most powerful post in the world. You guys are joke!

  20. Our amazing president Donald Trump is a genius. In comparison to yourself Mr. Language Expert, he has and is so much more than you so when you're as rich and powerful as President Trump then you can speak. But for now, shut-up.

  21. When Trump speaks at his rallies to his deaf, dumb and blind supporters, he sounds like a mob boss doing stand up comedy.

  22. And NO there are no Seven Million One Hundred Thirty Two Thousand People – watching this claptrap ! Oky Dok Obama Uhm ?

  23. …maybe so. We witness this in his PUBLIC moments. But, I am willing to bet, that in PRIVATE, among those that he is comfortable with, he is eloquent. More important is that within his own thoughts, he (President Trump) speaks competently. May I remind everyone that this individual is a successful business man who happens to be among the richest persons in the country, if not the world!

  24. What are they going to start analyzing next? His bowel movements! These news commentators should grow up and move on.

  25. What are they going to start analyzing next? His bowel movements! These news commentators should grow up and move on.

  26. Of course, the orange anomalous turd's language is like that of an adolescent. The only speech he learned growing up was, "me, me me!" and " mine, mine, mine, all mine!"

  27. THE WAY HE SPEAKS IS THE TRUTH. SOMETHING THE LEFT AND MSM SHOULD TRY FOR CHANGE. THIS PROFESSOR IS SO FULL OF HIMSELF, THAT HE HAS NO ROOM FOR STUDENTS IN HIS CLASS

  28. These lefties are mad because Trump is president, those two on the screen talk like they got sticks shoved up their rear end.

  29. The electoral college gave us that moron…please remember that important fact. We-the-people had voted in another choice!

    Stop ignoring facts just to appease a few bankers' sneak facto…SMH.

  30. Hillary is a good example who speaks in a high-form manner.
    Hillary, that two-faced , insincere, venal, money-grabbing odious crook.

  31. I refuse to go back-and-forth with Republicans or Democrats on whether or not Donald Trump is a good president. What he has and is going to do for this country,but it is obvious to me that this president does not speak in a presidential way. Even if he’s not a politician he should speak as if he has an Education.

  32. Im so sad that my grandchildren will have to learn about this man one day in their school lesson .. True embarrassment😪🙄

  33. lol never saw this one before, the fake news was really trying their best to run the man down. you poor snowflakes

  34. Moses was not well spoken, and rescued a whole nation of people, and brought them to their inheritance. Donald Trump speaks to the masses so that all can understand every word…yet still he has performed the most brilliantly FOR THIS NATION to rescue our Republic from those that have tried to destroy.

  35. Based on this analysis Americans that support Trump, their education level are worst than third world countries.
