(ed: those inclined to dismiss this headline as ‘just another attack on trump’ – could do well to head to youtube – where they will find lots of video of trump on talkshows – like david letterman – from the last century..
there they will see/hear a trump who is articulate/intelligent..sometimes even funny..
the contrasts with the stumbling/shuffling shell of a man/that former self that he now is – could not be starker..
..is clear evidence of his degeneration..
..and will just underline that (easily-dismissed) headline..)
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.
Analysts ran the records through eight different tests for vocabulary complexity – diversity, and comprehension level.
In every single test Mr Trump scored the lowest.
