Breaking news: Donald Trump speaks at a 4th grade reading level.

This was also “breaking news” last October 21st, but never mind – the message must be heard!

So what’s a sophisticated speaker sound like? Mumbo jumbo “nuance”

Here’s Clinton: 

“Well look, I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in … and I do think you have to control your borders. But I think that it’s also true that we need to do more to try to, number one, deal with the people who are already here, many of whom have been here for decades.

“We need to secure our borders. I’m for it, I voted for it, I believe in it, and we also need to deal with the families, the workers who are here, who have made contributions, and their children.

“Mexican immigration no longer is really the issue. The Mexican economy is doing well enough, we’ve had no net Mexican immigration in the last several years. We now get immigrants from Central America and Latin America, and a lot of them make a very dangerous trip with smugglers and traffickers to try to get in to our country. And we need to do more to try to put some resources into those countries to try to deal with some of the conditions, particularly the violence, the drug dealers and the like, that create that.

Mrs. Clinton went on to argue that in addition to securing the border, the government needs to give the 11 million illegal immigrants who are already here a path to citizenship to bring them “out of the shadows.”

“Because we will have a better economic outcome if we do that because what happens now is if you’re undocumented, you will work for as little as you can be paid,” she said. “And that influences the labor market and takes away jobs from Americans because there’s no even playing field. If we get them out of the shadows and we enforce the labor laws, we will see a much better labor market for Americans and we will also see much more contribution into the Social Security and Medicare system, as well as the taxes. I mean right now we know that undocumented workers pay into the Social Security system, many billions of dollars, but it could be even more.”

And here’s Trump. I’ll take the 4th Grade edition, thank you.

    Dude –

    In order to reach the low information voter, which is the “progressives” base, you need to speak at a fourth grade level, in order to be understood. The whole “progressive” message of “mo free stuff” is meant to appeal to this level.

    And thanks to the “progressive” education system,any speak above the fourth grade level is not understood. The vast majority of US newspapers are written at the fourth grade level. It is a necessity when our “progressive” liberal education system churns out a bunch of illiterate retards year after year.

    How do you blame Trump for that?
    Your Pal,
    Walt

      I couldn’t agree more. No one hopes Trump is the candidate more than I. It’s a good thing he speaks at a ” fourth grade .level” because the lower class and working class population is expanding daily..

    For Christ’s sake….the media are idots. One thing DT is is a great speaker / entertainer ….uh, POLITICIAN dare I say. He is outwitting these so called “media elites” with their so-called high society diction. Give me a f**** break.

    And, I will take New Yawker DT any day over the twang from Cruz or Clinton.

    That Trump Tweet sounds like an argument the 5 year-old had with the 7 year-old in the back seat yesterday. I think it was over a juice pouch.

  5. Here’s another interesting analysis of Trump abusing the voter, or the language:
    http://digg.com/video/donald-trump-linguistics-answer-question

    Trump is an ego-driven shallow rich fool. But his message is resonating with a medium-sized cohort who thinks Obama has weakened America, and who are rightly fed up with the political correctness of the liberals and the media. That cohort is the tea party cohort and the FWIW readers. Unfortunately, we are not as large as we think. Not large enough to win.

    So this unique confluence of Obama + rebellion against PC + popularity of reality TV + Trump’s titanic ego + Trump’s fascinating belligerence will drive a bit of a realignment of the R party. It’s a unique thing largely driven by the unique character of Trump, and the times.

    We will lose, but the R party will not vanish. After losing, the party will become more populist and less William F. Buckley.

      Well in the words of William F. Buckley. “The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry.”

      So Balzac, Are You implying that Hillary is not driven by her ego? Personally I think she pretty shallow, as she won’t come clean on her server or accept any responsibility for the four who died in Libya. So be careful before you start picking on Trump.

    People these days have short attention spans. I like it when someone can cut to the chase .

    Look at what Trump agreed to do for the people of New York with respect to the Ferry Point Golf Course & what he actually has done & you have in a nutshell what we’ll be looking at as an entire country if we are short-sighted enough to vote him in. God Forbid.

      And the same with the Skating Rink in NYC. When Hillary campaigned for senator in NY, part of her platform promise was to bring in 200,000 job to upstate NY. Guess what. She never fulfilled her promise. Worse, upstate actually lost jobs while she was senator. So if Hillary becomes president, you can expect more of the same. EMPTY PROMISES, except when it comes to raising taxes. This is what you can expect from Hillary.

    Look what he did for Wolfman (sp?) skating rink….years of government slothfulness and union payola….he got it done in mere months.

    For all you arm chair critics—he is worth BILLIONS….what have you done to bring that many jobs and personal success? Yes, he was born on 3rd base with a father who made a million in Queens—but there are a lot of other children of wealthy parents—and did nothing with it.

    I love America. You can dream big. You can be a success. You can even be President.

      Wow. How’s the Kool-Aid?

    • Going into the city today along the West Side Highway, a long stretch of it in the 50s is maintained by Donald Trump. Now, I know, HE doesn’t get out and pick up the used condoms and thrown beer bottles but it made me stop and wonder what on earth Hillary has ever done for others? She’s never made any contributions (financial or otherwise) to Chappaqua. Her foundation is a laundering service for her millions under the guise of helping others. She’s a taker and Donald is a giver. BIG BIG difference.

        Re golf course – where’s the golf club he’s supposed to build to leave behind after he gets 10 years of golf fees? The Children’s park? The public toilets? TAKE TAKE TAKE
        He’s a billionaire, yes, but at whose expense. All those bankruptcies hurt a lot of other people.

    What do you think Trumps administration would look like? Much more qualified than Hillarys. All of Hillary’s positions go to the highest bidder.

    I love me some Hilda ads. Can’t wait til she and Trump really get the going.

  11. I thought GHW Bush, incumbent would beat that womanizer Clinton in 1992. He didn’t. I thought Dole would beat Clinton. He didn’t. I thought George W. would beat Gore, and he basically didn’t. I thought McCain would beat that lightweight Obama, and he didn’t. I thought Romney, an honorable, accomplished professional would beat Obama, who was a failure. He didn’t. I thought Tom Foley would beat that incompetent Malloy once. He lost twice.

    And now you want me to believe that the political novice and screamer Trump, who has been interested in politics for about half an hour, has sky-high negatives, and lots of skeletons in his business background, will beat Hillary. I’d like to believe you.

    But after decades of being smacked upside the head by American voters….
    Well, like the donkey to whom the 2 X 4 is applied, I’ve learned a thing or two.

    Please stop telling me how much you love Trump, and show me some EVIDENCE Trump can win the swing voter, who decides elections. I want to believe…….
