It would be nice if he would say it so we could understand him.

And therein lies the crux of the problem, petch. He is so screwed up in his head that what rolls out of his mouth is a reflection of those thoughts !


I know your side thinks we just say Trump is crazy to zing him, but no, he actually is NUTS ! No rational human being says or does the things he comes up with, he is certifiably bananas ! All you have to do is listen or watch him for a while, and it is painfully apparent something in not right about this guy.

Exactly this ^^^

People want to believe he tells us what he thinks, well, he tells so many lies it is impossible to know what he really thinks or knows, but what comes through is not very flattering to him.

The press reports what he states verbatim, and also reports on the falsehoods he perpetrates in those statements. It looks bad, real bad.

The press is then accused of bias. ... Covering up and making excuses for bad ideas and false statements is bias, reporting what is actually said and done is not bias.

Two recent examples:
  • While in France at the G-7 summit Trump stated that China made two phone calls offering to make a deal on trade. Good news for many, one would assume.
China made no such calls, none at all. Trump was inflating, exaggerating, outgassing. Just plain lying.
  • Trump stated that he skipped the G-7 meeting on climate change because he took a meeting with Angela Merkel.
But Merkel was at that climate meeting, so he couldn't have been with her in a private meeting. Most young children are more careful in their alibis.

These are easy obvious lies to debunk, but Trump says them anyway, as if he has no filter for integrity. The press reports on it and Trump supporters accuse them of 'bias'. The whole world is watching him lie ... daily. The world press - with no skin in our political game - reports on it as it happens.

So if he really says what he thinks, his thinking must be addled.

I argue that it would be a real bias to deliberately not report these things to keep the public unaware.

Synonyms for articulate
(note MY highlight in BOLDED that I agree with)

coherent
eloquent
expressive
fluent
well-spoken
clear
comprehensible
definite
distinct

intelligible
lucid
meaningful
understandable
I agree with bolded above because DJT has been clear and consistent with his BS and clearly states his Bigotry/Misogynist/Islamophobia/Love of anything White+ WHITE supremacy/nationalists multiple times daily PLUS directs his appointee's to follow his DIRECTIVES or get thrown under BUS with ease!!

All the rest in not applicable .. BUT his Koolaide drinkers (mostly trolls+ anyone who promotes non-white/Christian/Liberal hate mantra's with propaganda Lies >> OP's scenario!

Between his Lies (alternative facts) and deconstructing FACTS of History/Provable evidence/ Important Law Enforcement (courts)/Intelligence Agencies/ Congressional Powers/ Using office of POTUS to profit by himself and his FAMILY ( Emoluments Clause)/ Sycophant for Dictators of Foreign Government / + Divorcing Allies and making America less strong/respected and NOT trusted is the outcome!

IF "Word salads" is considered "Articulate" coupled with alternative facts spewed and repeated numerous times in one rambling sentence > I must suggest OP never got out of 3rd grade level of education to comprehend what "Articulate" means!!

IMO of course

Articulate isnt what I would call it. But lets ask Stormy Daniels. You know, the woman he was bangin' while his wife was at home pregnant with his son. Do women think this is ok behavior.

What a laugh all this is. These are the same insults and criticism that we all heard about Trump in 2015 and 2016. Yet he’s in the White House. Too funny! Looks like he was articulate enough to outlast a couple dozen candidates and win the election.

You Trump fanatics are so blind it’s not funny. Think about it- you support a serial liar, a guy that cheats on his wife, goes on infantile name calling binges, puts the country’s working class at risk with an ill planned trade war, thinks Fox News should be more like Pravda....

Jesus what the GOP has become is absolutely insane.
Oh and the VERY best part is how our new press secretary (anyone remember her) tried to spin that lie:

Quote:
“President Trump confides in his wife on many issues including the detailed elements of his strong relationship with Chairman Kim,” she said. “And while the First Lady hasn’t met him, the President feels like she’s gotten to know him too.”
LOL. How would you like to have the job of cleaning up all of Trump's LIES? I swear, he lies about the dumbest things sometime.
