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. he wasn't elected for his ability to shoot the bull he was elected to do the job nobody else could or would do clean up the mess in district of columbia

  2. You know what else most people don't know? The Republican party of Abraham Lincoln's days were leftists, and completely different than in modern times.

  3. THE ORANGE RACIST FASCIST MUTHA FUKEN PATHOLOGICAL LYIN CON TRAITOR CLOWN is Pathetic and inept. He made the U.S. the laughingstock of the world. IMPEACH that MUTHA FUKA!!

  4. Put yourself in our president shoes then state your solutions! Else if all you are doing is looking for faults start with the mirror and you will be overwhelmed!

  5. Amazing how consuming hate is and those who are hating are unaware of how nasty it makes them. This guy is arrogant and narcissistic.

  6. We should go back to bathing suits that cover the body, (ho-hum ladies, you really shouldn't give it away, then it's not special or really worth anything) hats, gloves, oh, and manners.

    "He (Trump) says some of the most questionable things."

    Uuuuuhhhhh………

    Brian.

    Do you really want to talk about who said questionable things?

  8. 1:14

    "He learned nothing.''

    I think "He didn't learn anything" is the proper form.

    How do you know what he learned at Wharton Business School?

  9. 1:18

    "He speak like someone who paid no attention.''

    I prefer:

    "He speaks like someone who didn't pay any attention.''

  10. LMAO at this FOOL…The only thing he's an expert on is peddling B S … MSNBC and all these QUACKS who claim to be experts on everything are the LOWEST I Q holders on the planet…

  11. Yeh he probably didn't think he'd become president. But now he's just winging it…..i wonder if hes on the spectrum if he is not aware that he's making a fool of himself.

  12. People don't know, that I never said that, and I'll never say it again…
    You know, I don't know… I don't know…
    … But I'm the best… I'm Yuuuge!… and you better believe it!

  13. Bush the II had his Cletus thing. Vaginal cigar man had his good old Razerback drawl. But O'Bummer had the gift a used car salesman would envy. In the past Presidents always went over the subjects and reviewed their speech. Kinda like rehearsing for a movie shoot. Also the they only spoke if they wanted too and when they wanted too. I don't ever recall a gang of press always hanging around whenever a presidential aircraft engine was running. Part of the blame is his.

  14. It was so nice to see that other educated people recognize that he is not, but he refuses to be educated. The fact that his brain seems to have stopped at an adolescent age in terms of his vocabulary and word usage is scary and the fact that he is the President of the United States. Another problem is that I am not even sure he realizes when he’s lying anymore or that he is incorrect,

  15. Lol Like how he recently claimed that “playing games causes violence” regarding the mass shootings, millions of people feel relaxed when playing games not feeling angry but only the mental people get violent while playing games, there for those types of people will be violent regardless of the games.

  16. This is the trash that’s teaching our future generations? WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!! Trump is doing NOTHING but speaking the TRUTH! Everyone is so blind and falling into the mind washing that’s being put out there. Stop believing everything you watch and read on fake news. Yes, Trump is correct…. FAKE NEWS.

  17. PEOPLE INCLUDING SO CALLED EXPERTS DON'T KNOW THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ADDRESSING THE COMMON MAN ON THE STREET WITH HIS STYLE OF SPEECH, AND THIS IS A SHREWD TACTIC – BUT SINCE MANY OF YOU FOR THE JOY OF SARCASM LOVE TO HEAR THAT TRUMP "IS NOT AS INTELLIGENT AS OBAMA", IT MAKES PERFECTLY SENSE TO SEE HIM GETTING RE-ELECT AGAIN 🙂

  18. i can’t hear it somethings wrong with the sound an every video is saying it’s about trump an how he is making a speech i click on it an it’s not even about him such as it posting that trump is speaking and then it’s about trump it’s misleading an i can’t understand it

  19. Nothing here but intellectual cry babies. If you guys were given a million dollars in one dollar bills, you would criticize the way it was given. I feel dirty for watching this.

  20. He has all the words… He has all the best words… He uses none of them, but he has them apparently… On a dusty book shelf.

  21. Complete BS. Trump's "linguistics" are common sense approaches to relating to people. Nothing more or less. This is just BS wrapped in baloney.

  22. TRUMP'S A
    73 YEAR OLD MAN CHILD
    THAT
    ACTS LIKE HE CAN GET AWAY
    WITH ANYTHING
    BECAUSE
    HE'S NEVER HAD TO BE HELD
    ACCOUNTABLE
    BECAUSE
    HE ALWAYS
    FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY
    AND
    GETS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS
    FROM
    FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS
    TO KEEP HIMSELF RICH
    AND
    HE LET'S HIS
    FAMILY AND EMPLOYEES
    DO ALL OF THE WORK
    AND
    TRUMP TAKES ALL THE CREDIT
    FOR SUCCESS
    BUT
    NONE OF THE BLAME
    FOR THE FAILURES

  23. Why is it that if President Trump so uncouth, he doesn't have that stupid Bernie Sanders dumbazzed New Yahk dialect? This expert in linguistics is an ahole.

  24. When you are speaking to people with adolescent metal states, you need to speak in a manner they get. T.v. Is aimed at what eighth graders so that they capture as large an audience as possible

  25. But he did not always speak this way! Listen to some of his interviews when he was a young man. There is something wrong with him! There is a lot of things wrong with him.

  26. I have a feeling of joy to see a man of color talking about such an important subject.
    We can get a better understanding about such a troubled human being a narcissist .

  27. In August alone = 700 tweets x 10 mins/tweet = 116 hours tweeting = 3 weeks & 1 day spent tweeting.   That means he only works FOUR DAYS in one month – so he couldn't squeeze in any time to be ACTUALLY WORKING.

  28. What's wrong with plain language
    Plain language is pretty much what most people understand
    Big words are very good for impressing'
    Particularly for big time politicians!

  29. You're just jealous and wish you were in Donald J. Trump's shoes. AND if you know that the largest percentage of the citizens in fact speak and understand at an elementary level so who do you think DJT is talking to? THE PEOPLE.

  30. Part of his language peculiarity is his grift and his con and his ability to give orders to his underlings without incriminating homself.

  31. Obama used lip service saying nothing and doing nothing. Trump may speak simply and is understood. He also says and does. You dopes can go for having your ears tickled with fancy empty words. I’ll go with the guy that speaks plainly and accomplishes much. Ask yourself who’s being played for a fool?

  32. Lol oh dear, and a few years later Donny is still making USA look like dickheads to me and possibly others, just a guess

  33. Little Mans Father could not teach him, nor his Mother! So Fred paid for the Best school to keep him! You can't teach a Narcissist anything! 🙄🤑😬

  34. When you meet President Trump face to face will you still have the guts to be so disrespectfull towards him?Strong personalities like him will crush you just with a stare.

  35. This video was more awful than what comes out of Trump's mouth.
    Built in social engineering comes standard with hate and is free with one years paid subscription to cabal news networks.

  36. Who gives a crap the country is running so much better since he's been President
    🇺🇸TRUMP2O20🇺🇸
    🚂💨🚂💨🚂💨

  37. He may talk differently but he's smarter than you all.. Go add up your own mistakes, and stop destroying someone trying to save this Country from backstabbing liars ,and Socialist outcasts.

  38. Black dude = lefty liberal; what do you expect from this dude’s pie hole??? By the way, I have a bachelor’s, doctorate, master’s of science and a master’s of public administration degrees and I speak like Trump except I swear more not less (I am also a member of the 1%). Doctorate from Georgetown University; go figure!!! Liberals are full of crap 💩!!

  39. All.of.us.got.to.share.the.life.whit.this.joker.infedel.liar.of
    Caca.his.own.lies.gona.expose.him.in.to.the.open.if.l.was.him.lroll.my.chain.and.bark.as.puppy.pendejo.de.mierda.the.spell.of.the.mexican.wich.is.working.
