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

  • 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.

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

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

  • …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!

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

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

  • 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!"

  • 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

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • That's because the electoral college elected an absolute moron for president. This dimwit couldn't even manage a Burger King!

  • IMO this presidency is partly a function of a failing education system. A system like many others in the US that only really works well for those with wealth.
    Though maybe it is ironic that despite Trump having access to all his fathers wealth it still didn't help him.

  • All of you are the ignorant ones. The mans content is reinforced. It is not for you to deceide how a PRESIDENT or anyone should speak. What are your credentials? How was the speech of fumblers..bush jr..the hem and ha ers…um this ..the studder ers ers…the we was .and the Ah AH UH ER ER ER AH AH ERS. Go back and look at patterns of speech of every president including those who strictly read the prompters.. President Trump is the peoples PRESIDENT..the man speech and decorum is perfect when addressing any given situation. He reaches every walk of life. The man has a fantastic sense of humor and a gift for being a mans man keen quick intellect..strong.. tough when need be and charming and polished as well. This is why Europeans love him. From the highest walks of life. Nationally and Internationally, educated, the skilled and not so skilled. President Trump is the best business man and President this country has seen since 1812. HOW PETTY AND FOOLISH THE CRITICAL EGO MANIACS WHO ONLY HAVE A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD AS A SKILL. AMERICA WANTS WANT A PRESIDENT WHO PUTS IT ALL OUT THERE A STRONG SECURE EGO..HE KNOWS WHAT HE CAN DO AND AND DOES IT. "THAT'S CALLED A MAN OF ACCOMISHMENT." THE PEOPLES PRESIDENT.

  • It's been proven by scientists in college students over and over again that some of the most intelligent people in the world use profanity. I do not approve of profanity in anyway but it is a true scientific fact.

  • Started off laughing then it got serious… this was sad… and I'm from the "Third World". Geeze.
    The Caribbean has you all in our prayers. We think he presents early stages of Dementia. Any word yet on his Medical Reports? (seriously)

  • I gotta admit, this was interesting and true. I like trump in some ways and don’t in others. This was a really good segment

  • Adolescent? You give him too much credit. ""When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same." – D. Trump
    But he's just a symptom. Our country elected him, and we allow him to continue to squat in our WH, pretending to be the President. This is on us.

  • Trump is a phony he was supposed to be the top of his class everybody knows he was more to the bottom of the class you can listen to him speak he's uneducated that's why he had his school records hidden

  • The average adult reads at a sixth grade level. He knows this. Not everyone went to college and not everyone graduated from high school and out of those that did, most did not get all As.

  • I’ve often wondered what the heck happened to Trump that caused his “arrested development” and total lack of interest in learning anything!?? How could someone of his advanced age know absolutely nothing about anything? He is the oddest and most revolting person I’ve ever seen.

  • For someone who always criticizes others, he can not hide the fact that he has very limited vocabulary, and, you can always tell when he's just learned a new word, and it's hilarious to see………

  • Another example of the hateful attitude which will prevent a Democrat from gaining the White House for a very long time.

  • The professor certainly is focused on Trumps communication style, but totally misses the genius of Trump's intellect which is way above the insights being cited by many of the comments….most just don't comprehend Trump, and is due to their leftist socialist, communist's leanings!!  Even the liberal bunch is being self blinded by their hatred and feelings over common sense

  • i'm sure he does on purpuse to show a younger self, as he is really very old. He loves to look cool, poor one. racist.

  • The comments of the host were intended to bring out the worst in our President. 
    Remember, Donald Trump is not a politician; he speaks like a businessman.

  • I don't understand how can people in the comments say stuff like he has a mental disease. That's the problem of watching only the news where they cut his words and change the context to make him look bad. It's like giving a kid a toy to shut them up. Everytime I listen to Trump speaking he makes perfect sense. We could use a business man like him in Europe. Americans are dumb sometimes, modern liberals are destroying the country.

  • Linguistically Unadorned LOL … why do people expect a higher elevated vocab- from the clearly intellectually disabled?

  • Honestly not only is he not presidential in his speech, but just as a senior citizen adult who supposedly went to the best schools he talks like he barely finished school.

  • He is ignorant plain and simple. Attending a good school doesn't make you intelligent as standing in a garage doesn't make you a car

  • Don the Con trump talks like an uneducated 10 year old child with a head injury
    He speaks in monosyllabic words and repeats the same 3 words bad sad and bad again..
    His serious lack of education and history shows, has he ever read a book in his entire life?
    He also acts like a high school teenage drama queen, a serial narcissist and complete sociopath
    He always repeats himself but never has anything smart to say. He's a snake oil salesman a greasy con and a fraud
    Whoever thought that a reality TV hack should get voted to the most prestigious position in the US should get their
    head examined.

  • The linguist is not qualified to determine if trump is insane. I have a degree in registered nursing, i worked in icu for many years. Part of my education was interning at several different mental health facilities. I have clinical experience in mental health. There is more going on with trump besides narcissism. While he may not be schizophrenic or bipolar, he has a plethora of personality disorders and antisocial tendencies. The fear of others he displays borders on paranoia, his racism and hatred for humanity indicates his inferiority complex. The lack of conscience or empathy is an indication of antisocial personality disorder. If he was not privileged financially he would be a street thug. But most alarming and concerning is his tendancy toward authoritarianism. The policies he promotes are more consistant with a dictator than a conservative. The racism, the fearmongering, his promotion of violence and his constant attempts at suppressing the values that make US a free and just nation are the most immediate threat to democracy our country has ever faced in its short history.

  • I believe trump is on the down slide to a child again. We all revert to a child like state. Trumps predisposition to a adolescence like behavior, is alarming.
