Trump and Political Speech


Below is a brilliant example of political speech. The idea behind political speech is that you speak such that you appear reasonable while not actually communicating a specific point (specific points might lead to discussion or debate). In this interview Trump is soaring in the polls. He has no need to say something controversial. What you see are easy, meaningless statements delivered with confidence and authority. He does not say one unreasonable thing. Even I felt like he was an ok guy. He also does not say one meaningful thing.

Very well executed and decidedly depressing.
