Linguist Expert: President Donald Trump Sounds Like Your Beer-Swilling Uncle | The 11th Hour | MSNBC



CantCifUdontopenuri's · September 9, 2018 at 6:56 am

LMAO! @2:03, the guy to the right of "Plaid shirt guy" belongs to the same "this milk tastes like the cow got into onion patch" gang as Napoleon Dynamite!

That goes to show you the quality of supporters who show up to these childish, nonproductive BUFFOON rallies!  I guess "if it walks like a BUFFOON, and talks like a BUFFOON, then it's probably the donald "the BUFFOON" trump!  HA!HA!HA!

I can’t stand to see someone take one word, place a period after it and act as if they have written something prolific. Trump does this all the time.

Professor McWhorter Thank you for the perfect analogy of this toddler president. He plays in his tiny vocabulary sandbox! I wonder if anyone has begun teaching him to sign when he's hungry? Of course that would demand a bit more intelligence.

Cardion Don · September 9, 2018 at 7:47 am

LOL!!!!! "And he just decided to spit them out by the pool with the beer."

Tyler Durden · September 9, 2018 at 7:57 am

Fake news

Sam Downer · September 9, 2018 at 8:02 am

Trump talks like arobot on random access memory

Jennifer Morris · September 9, 2018 at 8:03 am

‘He’s never gotten beyond that little nose picking jerk.’ Priceless.

I clapped and clapped and clapped. Trump does, indeed, have a vocabulary of a child – I'm guessing 4 or 5 year old as my 5 year old's vocab puts Trumps to shame (when it comes to short words at least).
I feel sorry for the Linguistics department, listening to DJT must be like scraping your fingernails on a blackboard.

Nubby Tope · September 9, 2018 at 8:23 am

Donald Trump is Mr. Empty.

XeniteBlackthread · September 9, 2018 at 8:43 am

Trump is a distraction. The real question you have to ask yourself, America, is who affected your Electoral College to put Trump in the White House and how was it done? Even if it was done legally, the fax that Trump is where he is proves your system isn't delivering what a democracy should be in the 21st century.

Sarah Balcom · September 9, 2018 at 8:46 am

Trump is "swimming pool Budweiser basic" 😂😂😂😂😂

Ms. 8of11 · September 9, 2018 at 8:58 am

he still has an opportunity to be greater if he desires an interesting piece indeed wow!

seashell1286 · September 9, 2018 at 9:11 am

Anyone else have a beer drinking uncle with just a GED and dyslexia who would crush Trump in the brains department?

I propose John Oliver by Fox and Friends commercial air time and run Sesame Street sketches as a public service instead of catheter cowboy.

Dave Ponsford · September 9, 2018 at 9:20 am

You didn't need an expert to explain that Trump speaks like a child with limited vocabulary, any adult with a basic education already knows.

Wahiid Ades · September 9, 2018 at 9:24 am

Trump is an actual vampire with no heart, no feelings.

Rusty McLean · September 9, 2018 at 9:27 am

First sober president we had in forty years, bush, Obama, drunk losers

Vini SThrill · September 9, 2018 at 9:38 am

This is funny because this is exactly how I've described him 😂 😂 "the drunk uncle we all wish we had but wouldn't trust him with a toothbrush let alone the presidency".

Damian Anthony · September 9, 2018 at 10:13 am

.50 sec. "We often ask him how this President talks, … other than a lot"
Haha!,… GOLD.

Left anti pc · September 9, 2018 at 10:14 am

I don’t think Trump understand the true meaning of impeachment.

Michael Young · September 9, 2018 at 10:20 am

Not sure about highly educated but definitely sure his upbringing is bad. Nothing but a rich brat!

Roger Williams · September 9, 2018 at 10:22 am

"OMG, I'm talking like Donald Trump!" 😂😂😂😱😱

Por Favor · September 9, 2018 at 10:24 am

Very kind way of describing trump. But an insult to uncles who swills beer by the pool sometimes

A Raad · September 9, 2018 at 10:25 am
