Thom Hartmann translates Donald Trump into plain English

Donald Trump tends to speak in simple sentences that would appear to be understandable to the average 4th grader. But his message, now written by Republican operatives and delivered via teleprompter, maintains the not-so-hidden Republican-speak that transform Trump to just another GOP candidate. Thom Hartmann breaks it down.

In the comments below Hartmann’s video, people point out that this “dogwhistling” isn’t much different from what Hillary Clinton does. The difference lies in the digestibility of the final message.

Please God, the religious right prays, let him stick to the teleprompter.

Trump has finally come around to the deregulation, billionaire positions that define his adopted (co-opted?) party. In my view, it’s only a matter of time until his real opinions shine through and contradict everything that’s been written for him.
