What's even more interesting the way he uses language to sell his message to the public (especially 'that' segment of the public). Well worth watching this 6 minute video for the analysis.

The average reading level here is 7th or 8th grade so that's no surprise.

Some good analysis there, thanks for sharing. Would be interesting to see linguistic analysis also applied to the other main presidential candidates.

A difficult choice for Americans: Trump who wants to limit Moslem visitors to the US (racist, or at least religious bigot) or one of his rivals who want to kill them in their home countries (psychopaths). I find it a bit alarming that so many on this thread favour the psychopaths.

It's only the GOP that are psychos, and most on this thread appear to be Democrat.

Rather than a linguistic analysis (which was v interesting - thanks, Shard) I have been amused by a couple of Peter Serafinowicz's overdubs of Trump speeches. This one casts Trump as a Cockney gangster worthy of a Guy Richie movie role:


while this one gives turns him into a somewhat camp old-school Shakespearian thesp

I would vote for Trump rather than for any of the War Party candidates - and for Sanders against his War Party opponent. Would Trump or Sanders continue the slaughter of civilians in the Middle East, and the support of ISIS fanatics to help bring down Assad in Syria? We don't know - but we do know that the others would. For me, human rights is a far more important factor than any domestic issue.

You think Trump gives a shit about human rights? Sure, deporting a few thousands of undocumented immigrants has no impact on anybody's human rights. Forbidding all Muslims from entering America has no impact on human rights at all, no of course not. His "I'm gonna get tough with Putin" rhetoric, while completely devoid of any sort of policy content at all, is at least an indication that he's as hawkish as the most hawkish hawk when it comes to throwing the US's military muscle around. His stance on Syria is poorly thought out to the point of idiocy, but is conspicuous by the absence of concern for the fate of any Syrians, whichever faction they support.

Trump is still a joke candidate. The problem is, the Republican primary electorate don't seem to realise that the joke's on them.

It's almost starting to look like Trump is trying to tank his campaign, but no matter how outlandish the stuff he comes out with to do that, it seems to have the opposite effect.
