Presidents since Warren G. Harding have had speech writers, but the current occupant of the Oval Office takes the cake when it comes to the disconnect between what we hear from him in a speech and what we get in a one-on-one interview.
He has about five or six go-to words in most interviews, but his speeches are long-flowing screeds that he could never begin to formulate on his own. They are so obviously not from him.
Makes you wonder if he actually believes the stuff he’s spewing, or if he’s just a mouthpiece for someone else’s skewed world view. (Cough) Stephen Miller.
Trump seems incapable of arranging words in a cohesive, remotely eloquent manner. Take him off-script, and everything is “amazing,” “disgraceful,” “beautiful,” “a hoax,” “fake news,” and not much else.
