Trump’s Very Repeated Words Add Up Very Very Much

Donald Trump likes to hide the fact that he doesn’t know anything by saying vague fluffy nothings and repeating nonsense words until it seems like enough time has passed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Now, he’s even embracing the role of the “anger” candidate – anger about the issues, to be sure, but also anger toward the Obama administration that his supporters share.

Trump is a master of crowd manipulation. His strategy for dealing with hecklers is one good example. His rhetoric, and more specifically his speaking style, is another. Trump, as Fix contributor Barton Swaim wrote a while back, has a habit of punctuating each argument with short, declarative sentences. And then he often repeats them...

But Trump doesn’t use those short phrases on posters or bumper stickers, or in television ads (he’s only run two so far). He peppers them throughout his speeches, using them to drive home important points and cut through the applause, or perhaps sustain it.

It was on display at Thursday’s GOP debate in Charleston, like in his attack on the New York Times (“That’s wrong. They were wrong. It’s The New York Times, they’re always wrong. They were wrong.”), and it is regularly a feature of his stump speeches on the campaign trail.

Those moments aren’t as memorable as the use of a catchphrase like “Yes we can,” but it’s a safe bet that Trump’s use of repetition helps drive home his talking points. And anyways, he already has a catchphrase — one he’d most like to direct at President Obama: “You’re fired.””*
