Why is it either eloquence or word salad? If you don't like people using fancy words when simpler work fine or similar sentiments, that's one thing. Complete sentences and thoughts are still needed to be articulate. I have tried to listen or read his speeches. They're... something else.

I have Adhd. The way he speaks is how I would if I just started saying everything bouncing around in my mind.

Besides the nuclear quote, this is one of my favorites:

ďI have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I donít have a musical instrument. I donít have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No weíve broken a lot of records. Weíve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We donít need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.Ē

Linguistically unadorned.

Went to the best schools & learned nothing in them.

Numb to the artful.

Sorry to say it; there are only so many thoughts.

Not even close. A third grader could out debate Trump.

Trump is a verbally challenged dimwit. Hell he canít even spellcheck his BS laden tweets.

Moron.
