An article by BBC has given some very interesting insight as to why some people just can’t seem to stand President Donald Trump.
The reason why? They’re snobs!
They speculated that “both liberal and conservative intellectuals” are “simply appalled by the way he talks.” Many adore President Trump because he was a man who made his own fortune, a man of the people.
This means that his grammar is not always perfect because he did not spend ages getting an advanced education in politics which breeds a certain level of language.
As a man of the people, who really gets in touch with the every day person because he speaks on their level.
Unfortunately, a lot of politicians who sit on their high pedestal looking down their noses at the every day man do not appreciate this for how fantastic it actually is. “Blinded by his misuse of language,” they judge him not because of his actions, which in so far have been strong and noble, but for “how he says it.” Supporters of President Donald Trump are the true intellectuals because they are smart enough to see that the important thing is getting things done and not saying things fancy!
Are both liberal and conservative intellectuals simply appalled by the way he talks? They are so blinded by his misuse of language and mangling of history that they judge him for what he says, and how he says it, and not for what he does. The columns in question were by George Will, a distinguished conservative writer here in Washington and a long time critic of the president, and by Chris Ruddy, CEO of the media organisation Newsmax and a good friend of the president. I’ll leave you to judge their effectiveness. But as I read them, it occurred to me that the two men were drawing very different conclusions about the same thing, namely Trump’s intellectual style. Moreover these two opinions broadly define why some people love Trump and some hate him. It’s how he sounds that people respond to so viscerally. Mr Will says it is “urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about President Trump’s inability to do either”. He accuses the president of an “untrained mind bereft of information”. He cites his poor grasp of history, as demonstrated by Mr Trump’s recent remarks that former President Andrew Jackson could have prevented the US Civil War. Like many of Mr Trump’s critics, both here and around the world, Mr Will is stunned by the president’s lack of knowledge of basic global history and foreign policy norms. He quotes a line from the campaign trail in which Mr Trump threatened to “bomb the s— out of” Middle East terrorists. And he ends his piece with a warning about the risks of the US nuclear arsenal ending up in the hands of someone so ignorant of world affairs.
