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. Over 7 million ill-informed people watched this! If you really don't know what to watch, watch something educational and funny here, You can talk all about it tomorrow and look interesting.

  2. California is Now in a Crises with homeless people sleeping on streets, needles, feces on the streets of California and San Francisco and HIGH crime,, and then the sanctuary cities where criminals are put back into the streets that put American citizens in danger,  Thousands are leaving there and in NY State and don't forget High Taxes… Read my lips there are NO Republicans there to offset the other side, the same with Chicago the murder capital of the World and Detroit, Baltimore ALL Run BY LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS   Who is there to blame?

  3. My late Uncle Joe talked like that. He was a bit of a self promoting blowhard too. Even had red hair and a ruddy face. He was in Hollywood show biz. I recognized the dialect immediately when he said of an opponent, "He's Beautiful, a really Nice man!"
    It's show biz speak also called Variety speak. The Animaniacs parodied it in one of their cartoon shows. Since Trump did 10 years on The Apprentice and has spent a lifetime as a salesman I'm surprised no one has got the connection. Perhaps that's why so many Show Business people hate him. He sounds like a really bad talent agent. Don't call us, we'll call you. Caio babe. Let's do lunch!

  4. Well dummy it must have worked cause he is your president. Your proper speech done nothing for you obviously except get you invited on a horable show.

  5. Trump is simply stupid. And bingo…Trump didn’t have to learn anything in school because he knew Fred (father) would buy whatever Donnie desired. Just as he did when baby boy Trump threw fits at age 2.

  6. the Democrats are for China but there to dumb to realise it..the black and brown will be the first to go if China gets there Democrat way every one will live in a Detroit style home and neighborhood

  7. Boy, lots of Dems and Trump haters on here. If he’s so stupid and ignorant, why is he so wealthy! You’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?

  8. This man is so educated he's the leader of the Free World. . . this offended victim has hurt feelings and doesn't understand why he's not being cater too

  9. May it isn't didn't master talk about how our president speaks but it's OK to talk about the president's sleeping around. He must be the greatest man on Earth. They have to find something to pick on him about

  10. D. Trump, speaking connects with plain every day citizens in all walks of life. This does not, necessarily, indicate their lack of intelligence. "Genius comes from the ranks, " Napoleon B. You might add common sense, also..

  11. Why,
    Is it so important for, people in power. To speak Like he came. Out of Cambridge. Oxford. Yale. Harvard, these are the basic training &. This man deservers Respect. him on win the Nobel Pearce ZW prize. Also didn't articulate as much. He is [email protected]

  12. All the comments below are true about Trump and that's why is people like him so much because he is stupid and he is an imbecile just like they are that's why they like him. Very few educated people like him he's just a disgusting person and a detriment for this

  13. In one word. He is Trump! Linguistics guy is called to talk trash obviously. Trump is the millionaire, president and he's got game fortun. This ignorant professor is most likely paid to be here to criticise the president on a national fake news. He's learned not to have black accent.

  14. Wow, the left has nothing better to do…and all of the people in the comments, I feel bad for you. No autonomous thinking skills. Just go along with the news and everything it says. Really sad actually.

  15. I see hateful comments towards The POTUS, nobody is perfect. He did something NONE of these people will be ever do. He became the president of the US because he knew how to persuade a huge number of people, imagine from being a business guy to being the POTUS, something you will NEVER achieve even with 2 PhD's. Unbelievable and The highest achievement for an "imperfect man". Those who hate him so much…They can not even believe it is possible.
    Anybody could become POTUS not only the elite politicians and lawyers. Biased journalist.

  16. Weird speech pattern with limited vocabulary and derogatory language including name calling, considering he is allegedly a Wharton graduate. What a disgrace and waste of money.

  17. Trump is very smart and well-groomed by his handlers, like the Mercers and Bannon. His job is to use rhetoric to form a fascist base- picked up by the governor of Texas and various shooters. This is deliberate. It is planned. It is calculated. It is practiced. It is in service of the billionaires and the police state. Just look at it: he buddies up with a Saudi butcher and sells it with grinning diplomats! Really disgusting! But really effective. The medium is the message. He knows his audience and he knows his job- push the police state- push the authoritarian model. The analysts are clueless- like the ones in this video.

  18. Fake New! When there will be real news no one will believe MSNBC.. Propaganda station , if there is no new they make it up or speculate . Time to pull the broadcasting licenses.

  19. He's A BILLIONAIRE!! Who cares how he speaks..HE gets it done!!
    Trump 2020!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  20. You know, I hate Trump as much as the next guy, but MSNBC's constant attacks on him are really coming off as reaching and pathetic. Americans aren't changing their minds. Just give it up.

  21. Ever think Trump is being advised to speak in a manner that can be appreciated by his base? Not as an adolescent because that is an errant judgment. Rather, he's speaking as people he's told could relate to his mannerisms would speak about him and his politics. So that he's relatable.

  22. It used to be upsetting when people butchered the english language. then some decades passed. then i realized, i do it too, people i like do it more. Don"t nobody die from this do they Brian. Still waiting for that piece on ebonics.

  23. Trump is not much different from the average American. I met many, they have money but are extremely Ignorant! All of them are liars! Countess Ursula Widawska

  24. So nice to have a president who stands up to the big corporations who control the media with their 24/7 corporate propaganda disguised as news programs. Probably the only president in any our lifetimes who will do this. So I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

  25. I believe him when he says, "Believe me. I know better than anybody." He has been dealing with politicians in most of his adult life. I, as a mere spectator from afar, will not mock him. I will watch him carefully in silence.

  26. DONALD TRUMP IS A GENIUS HE IS SPEAKING IN WAYS FOR ALL THE UNEDUCATED PEOPLE OUT THERE IF HE ACTUALLY SPOKE PURE INTELLIGENCE PEOPLE WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND IT!

  27. He likes to speak in a manner that Liberals can understand. This video is an extremely desperate attempt of insult. Why not discuss the speech of AOC, and Hillary Clinton. Of course their linguistics change geographically, based on the Assumed stupidity of their listeners and followers.

  28. Wow 10K … like flat earthers. So many of them too! "We are an unbelievably divided country and if you don't like it LEAVE!" Wow trump you and those 10K thumbs down deserve each other!

  29. Right ok, like the anchorman impressing the fact that he is presenting a language expert with a degree and a status, MSNBC you are a fckn joke
