Donald Trump may call himself a genius on Twitter, but his spoken statements say otherwise.

An analysis of the President's first 30,000 words uttered in office found Mr Trump speaks at a third- to seventh-grade reading level – lower than any other President since 1929. Mr Trump’s vocabulary and grammatical structure is “significantly more simple, and less diverse” than any President since Herbert Hoover, the analysis found.

The comparison is based on interviews, speeches and press conferences for every president dating back to 1929, compiled by online database Factba.se. Analysts at Factba.se studied the “off-script” remarks of all 15 men – essentially, everything but their prepared speeches – to compare and contrast their speaking skills.

    We are not surprised, are we.

    A large portion of his base seems to have similar issues.

    Yes. There are also vertical factors to regional accents like educational attainment and socioeconomic class among others which are why a college professor of English at any university doesn't speak the same as resident of a trailer park only 10 miles away. I'm guessing that in New York State, it's particularly difficult to pin down due to those differences and that the state is spread over at least 3 distinct regions: the NYC metro area, New England, and the Great Lakes. So it'd be helpful if you could tell me more about what "New York English" sounds like.
    JR speaks the truth about stupid is stupid, and might have a special sensitivity to the stereotype of southern speech: dixie drawl = stupid . I found Bill Clinton was excellent at destroying that prejudice-- although from a lower class Arkansas background, he had the advantage of a very high I.Q. and developed articulate, precise, scholarly discourse that came through his drawling good ol' boy manner of speaking. Contrast that with trump who enjoyed privileged blue-blood schooling since he was born yet works hard to project NYC street thug speech patterns and wannabe gangster behavior because it impresses his base.

    C'mon, stop being so stupid. YES that is right to the point. Trump does act like a child. Not good for a President.

    I'm not so sure he has to project it. Seems to me that is exactly who he and his buddies are.

    Consider the real estate moguls and lawyers he has associated himself with...

    Of course not, frighty. Obama had enough content to easily fill 15 minutes without repeating himself and you don't have an attention span anywhere near 15 minutes. For you a lecture by trump, short, repetitive, and at the level of an 8-year-old is far more digestible.

    I had a difficult time understanding why Obama said 19 times he couldn't grant deportation exemptions and then he did.

    I had a difficult time understanding why Obama said 19 times he couldn't grant deportation exemptions and then he did.

    He said he couldn't change the law, which he couldn't and didn't. He issued an executive order which, as he said, needed to be enacted into law for it to be a permanent fix.

    Sadly, a rotting mound of mashed potatoes was launched into the White House by Russia where, with his nose (and apparently his little wiener) out of joint with jealousy of Obama, he began destroying everything he could.

    But nothing will ever be enough for him, because the yawning vacuum is inside him.

    I don’t think even an eight year old would make that mistake, at least not in normal speech!
