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. His mother was from Scottish poverty and had only a few years of school, plus English was her 2nd language. People generally learn how to speak, from thier mothers, if that is their main caregiver. From all accounts, she was a kind hearted and charitable, warm loving housewife and mother. This is one reason why he said he "loves the poorly educated". Being of simple speech is not an indicator of a person's mental capacity. Language is not intellect.

  2. 8 – 30 – 19 Oh my goodness..

    How did that Mueller investigation go for the Democrats

    137 Democrats in the Democrat Controlled Congress sided with the GOP and decided NOT to IMPEACH the President of the United States Donald Trump

    #1 NO Racism
    #2 NO Senile aberrations
    #3 NO Russian Collusion delusion

    Oops….sorry….to all those
    Liberals
    Atheists
    Muslims
    Democrats
    Darwinists
    Evolutionists
    Temper Tantrum
    Biblically illiterate

  3. Trump is linguistically challenged. He might as well just say umm and scratch his head more with his tongue sticking out and rubbing his belly at the same time. No deodorant masking literate on his Sunday best. A smart literacy skills test is recommended to anybody running for president. Trump would never have passed it let alone be running this country. Sad very sad for our country.

  4. It’s sad because if you look at videos of him from his earlier years(like in his 20s) you can see he hasn’t always been like he is currently. Definitely some cognitive decline going on.

  5. The problem is, his target audience feel like he is on their level and therefore they love him, almost as much as he does.

  6. trump attending 🏫 was a joke in a way. he is filthy rich, what could school teach him that is better
    than what he already was…he did not need to try hard because he already had it all, so he learned the minimum and his vocabulary proves that…..

  7. If you really wanna know the real Donald Trump just go to his twitter page and you’ll get all the information you need even if most of it doesn’t make any sense.

  8. Funny title coming from MSM that lies, twists truths and has temper tantrums like 2 yr olds. Instead of stopping the trash talking after the Muller Report they continue to say whatever they think will get them views. Must be worried people are seeing what they are really "reporting".

  9. Drumpf 😈 🔥 is a Malignant Narcissist Racist 😈 🔥 DEMON TRAITOR POS !!😈🔥 He and ALL The Gross Old Perverted Repulsives 😈 🔥 belong in PRISON 😈 🔥 Or better yet in front of a Firing SQUAD!!😈🔥

  10. God, can you imagine the bat sh1t crazy outrage if Fox had run this kind of garbage about Obama when he was breaking up families at the border? You folks need to realize ASAP you are Psychologically Projecting.

  11. Trump talks like a seven year old.
    Being that his economic policy is that of a spoiled thin skinned brat, that has been protected from the consequences of his actions all of his life…
    Yeah, makes sense.

  12. That's why people like him, he's the guy you talk to every day, not some, lying bsing lawyer type, saying stupid bs, the country is way better off now than 3 years ago, everyone knows it, if you don't then you're just ignorant….

  13. Let me get this straight… Bryan Williams is so smart he gets " caught ' in all his lying, right?
    All of you commenting about OUR PRESIDENT in such a stupid, negative manner are so smart, right?
    Are you a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE like he is? He's smart enough to have a major pocketful of money, do you?
    Regardless, of his language skills, if that is the worst thing you can pick, joke and complain about, you have a
    problem. ALL OF YOU ARE EINSTEIN'S right?

  14. ……. and about 40% of Americans still support this moron. Wow America, when are you going to stop being so "great" ?

  15. "orange man is bad. Orange man is so bad. Orange man is stupid, racist, and bad. Orange man is uneducated and bad and learned nothing in school. Orange man speech is so bad and uneducated orange man bad." Is all I took from this entire video.

  16. Where are his grades? At any high level job I've been asked for my resume, schooling and GPA! None of that for the presidency?

  17. Sir, can YOU please run for office? We need you, it would be like intensive rehab to the assault we've ensured to our ears and intellect!!!!

  18. Pay no attention to this worthless news Outlet. This is absolute junk news, no journalistic Integrity here, because there are no journalists here. For truth in broadcasting go to Fox News. Brian Williams. The greatest liar on the news. A disgrace to his profession.

  19. SOMETHING NEW???
    MODERNIZE THE WHITE HOUSE, IN THIS FASHION???? WE'RE GONA SEE MORE OF THIS???? WOOOO💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜💜🖤🖤🖤💜

    I THINK MOST OF US WOULD AGREE THAT WE ALL ARE HELD TO CERTAIN STANDARDS IN OUR WORK ENVIRONMENT. IF WE LOSE THAT, WE"LL LOSE SIGHT OF OURSELVES ON THE OUTSIDE AS WELL! 💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤

    A PERFECT EXAMPLE..OF A GREAT LEADER IS::💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜
    .MR OBAMA,
    WHAT AN INSPIRATIONAL MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER/LEADER…BUT YET AT THE SAME TIME LEFT LOTS OF ROOM FOR FUN & HUMOR!
    BUT DONE IN GOOD TASTEFUL FUN WAY!! THAT, IN MY EYES IS WHAT A REAL LEADER LOOKS & SHOULD LOOK LIKE!!

    HES MAKING A MOCKERY OF UR PARLIAMENT, WHITE HOUSE & HAS NO REGARD FOR UR GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO UR DEMOCRACY!! SORRY, BUT HE SHOULD OF NEVER BEEN💜💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤💜🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤💜 ALLOWED TO RUN IN THE FIRST PLACE!! SO, WHOSE'S FAULT IS THAT????????

  20. Donald Trump has the intelligence to start and run major construction businesses, complete a project in weeks that NY could not complete in years, build several hotels and golf courses, set a campaine and be elected president and you butt plugs worry about the way he speaks. Insane msnPC

  21. We are used to only hearing presidents speak from a teleprompter and from scripts and memorized speaches written by controllers. Trump says what he wants, and we arent used to that

  22. In light of the above, it would be very worrying and sad to conclude that Trump's speech and how it connects with the common folk., may be a sign of the degradation of the American educational system.

  23. I am really sorry for what is probably most Americans that they have to endure the fact that they have a president that should have not been appointed in the first place. I say this and mean no condescension. The problem is that we are appointing people for money and no other reason. We have to move away from appointing heads of state that are not business people, bankers or media people. We need layers, people who can make laws.

  24. Trumps maturation ended in military school . He is still the 14 year old punk that his parents shipped off to get out of their hair .

  25. He is infantilized, and with nearly every personality disorder in the book. Obviously his parents sucked at raising children.

  26. I have always believed actions speak louder than words. Compare what he has done for America with what OB and the Clintons have done.

  27. The Bottom Line: DJT Is POTUS And Neither Of You Are!!–Whatever DJT Is Saying And Doing Has Got Him Elected.–This Tells Me Whatever He's Doing Is Working.–When Did Either Of You, The Newscaster Or This Professor, Make Or Lose, Then Remake Your Billions?? Just The Facts…Jack!!??

  28. To ALL The DJT Knockers: DJT Is POTUS. What About You??!!–Not Bad For A "Supposed" Dumb Guy.–Eat Your Heart Out, You "SO-CALLED" Smart-Arses.

  29. He cant't speak correctly because he did not attend school! You learn to speak correctly by writing – like term papers he never wrote!

  30. ANNOUNCER: "And our next contestant is Mr. Donald Trump! Tell us what you do, Mr.Trump."
    TRUMP: "I cun a runtry. I mean I runtry a cun."
    ANNOUNCER: "Oh, you run a country!"
    TRUMP: "Yes, sir."
    ANNOUNCER: "OK, for six hundred dollars, here's your first question. How is the city of Dayton in Ohio, spelled? You have ten seconds, Mr Trump."
    tik tok – tik tok – tik tok – tik tok…
    ANNOUNCER: "I'm sorry, Mr. Trump, your time is up. Can you spell the city of Dayton, in Ohio?"
    tik tok – tik tok – tik tok – tik tok…
    TRUMP: "T – O – L – E – D – O – ?"
    ANNOUNCER: "No, I'm sorry, Mr. Trump. It's D – A – Y – T – O – N. But thank you for coming on our show today!"
    TRUMP: "Today? Well, today I'm going to play golf with my good friend, The Prince of Whales."
    ANNOUNCER: "No, no, Mr. Trump. It's all over."
    TRUMP: "It's all over… I… I… apologize for all my racist comments!"
    ANNOUNCER: "No, Mr. Trump, we'll be seeing you."
    TRUMP: "We'll be seeing you, yes, in the next election! Remember, it's now MADA, and vote for Trump/Putin, Making America Divided Again!"
    ANNOUNCER: "You can go now, Mr. Trump!"
    TRUMP: "Oh yes, You Can Go Now, of course. When can I come back?"
    ANNOUNCER: "Well, we can look into that. How about after you've fixed the next election?"
    TRUMP: "OK, but… but … but… suppose I can't fix it?"
    ANNOUNCER: "Well, fortunately, that won't be the show's problem. Thank you again, and good-night, Mr. Trump!"
    TRUMP: "But, but… what about Hillary's emails?"

  31. I wasnt sure if this was a sketch, the is most funniest and truthful thing I seen. This cheered me up, I cant stop laughing.😂😂😂😂😂😂

  32. So what this eyaho with all his pretty words is saying is this. Instead of using a lot of fancy words to confuse and confound the people,
    THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    just comes right on out and tells everybody what's on his mind. Now I understand why this and all other poop for brains newsless channels are so up in arms. You're used to having to come on after all of the lying politicians have finished speaking and translate….
    THIS DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    is about to put all of you out of a job cos when he gets done talking there's nobody left asking……
    What did he say Bob? Huh? Did you catch that? What did he say?

  33. "Who knew, most people don't know that"
    We all knew all of it, all along, because we are to an individual more qualified and competent than Donald Trump.

  34. Someone said that Mr Trump went to school & learnt nothing! ✴✴✴✴ ✴✴ On that note, I am going back to school to learn……nothing, & become the PM of my country! Hey! I didn't know that it is that easy.✴✴✴✴✴ If President Trump did it, so can I.

  35. Approximately 32 million adults in the United States can’t read, according to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that 50 percent of U.S. adults can’t read a book written at an eighth-grade level.

  36. He should use colourful language to break down this unnecessary self destruct the b***** he's got to deal with if I was him I would do the same thing there's something wrong going on here with you news agencies and we're going to figure out what it is and I'm not just talking about Donald Trump there's a lot of ethical wrong things going on here with this type of reporting and it's not it's sending a message to our allies that all we have to do is support this negativity and we could destroy the presidency and save billions of dollars you open a lock step behind the president I've never seen I never expect Byron Brian Williams who I really had a lot of respect for to come out like this you have to know what's at stake right now you better lock step behind the president and all you people that's trying to destroy them and destroy the country at the same time you've been recognized the party is over now the consequences of the behaviour is going to come

  37. What the behaviour and I don't need a PhD to figure this out what the behaviour is is that the truth of the press has been lost what you will sink this country so fast and you will help our enemies do it from the inside this is what seems to be going on whatever reason is and I can think of many but something's very wrong when I press is going resorting to these type of level Junkyard Dog mentality without anything consistently logical about it doesn't work in the best interest of the country and it's really evil and lot of demonic aspects of it

  38. Whatever it is it's not news as we knew it as a kid it's something else it's organized smear campaigns even if your opponent is right we attacked them with enough negativity and then bring more negativity to the situation forget the American people to get their National Security to get all of that this is what we're getting and we don't want FBI and CIA people doing your job and straighten this s*** out CIA National Security spending billions of dollars get these evil demons out of our country or stop them Yo Got a responsibility attack on the president like a pack of junkyard dogs

  39. I don't let you know I'm going to have a lot of friends and NBC I have a lot of friends at Embassy but I never seen it like this coming out of the f**** news girl fake news and this propaganda it's not even fake new it's propaganda smear campaigns none of these people said anything concrete about do anything helpful to the country they just want everything they say will destroy the country in a couple of weeks

  40. What I'm saying happening with propaganda press and I'll say fake press, every news agency every news agency that participated in this type of slanderous and unnecessary behaviour is going to be held accountable, it's well-documented there's serious things going on here and I'm talking about the justice system because there's something really wrong going on here and I don't care how many news agencies are going to have their licenses snatch no matter how much money you have in your bank account you're not going to be allowed to present news it's going to be a total revolution in news after this and people that are elected to our Congress, I'm happy that they did it with the current administration because it's more apt than capable of dealing with it this is a national security issue with the entire country

  41. I still think mom and dad paid for his grades ! Like get real ! My cat is smarter than that bozo ! He doesn't know the meaning of truth ! He is a dummy and a habitual liar !

  42. All of them are all haters cause he’s the President of the USA hello!! Blah! Blah! Blah! This person is your president!! God bless my president 2020 KAGA

  43. The "base" voted for him because he is the moron neighbour who shouts out those things they only dare to think, believing in the illusion he's an educated influential person

  44. he when to the best school but he not learn anything his speaking is about insulting people and not being respectful to other and be a bully.
