    I would rather hear a man stubble telling the truth, then listen to the most elegant liar. TRUMP tells the truth. MSNBC are a pack of propagandist with a goal trying to take away our liberties and our vote in who we want running the country!!!!!!!!! They lie constantly to defame this great president's accomplishments and to try to sway the ignorant. Anyone with any interest in the truth can easily do some research to see that Trump has kept his promises and MSNBC is a corporate propagandist.

    It is worth noting with the books, articles and everything publicly expressed by mental health experts, that they would bring on a "language expert," with a Ph.D. to talk about, to "flirt" with the psychiatric-psychological aspects of Donald Trump's personality. The reason has to do with the "Goldwater Rule," and how many (not all) psychologists, psychiatrists and others licensed by their respective States, are still intimidated to openly speak on the media about Trump's mental status, because they have not had an opportunity to formally evaluate him. The language expert is skimming along the surface of a much deeper and profound psychologically regressed and narcissistically (at best) disturbed individual, whose need to force himself upon the public eye for the past forty or more years has given not only mental health experts who are old enough, but intelligent, informed people enough information in which to come to some hypotheses about how ego centric and self absorbed this man is. Language is an expression of our psychology and underlying personality structure. In this case, it is symptomatic of, and trump's all other factors.

    He has to speak that way so the public can somewhat comprehend and they still cant. They twist the words into something he never said since day one

    He wasn't groomed like obama to pull one over on the public. We know that for a fact. They hired a public speech trainer that worked with movie stars that speaks identical to Obama. Trump is speaking what he believes not what is programed
