Donald Trump's Favorite Phrases
Posted in Humor on Jan 20th, 2019
Even for the politically objective citizen, it's challenging to take President Trump seriously with all his unprofessional behavior, falsehoods, allegations, and Tweeting like a pre-teen girl. However, the political circus in the White House is fun to watch as his administration constantly attempts to clean up his blunders. Love or hate President Trump; one thing is for certain he's entertaining. Here are 15 of Trump's favorite phrases.
15. Believe Me
Have you ever gotten a 'great' haircut or a cup of 'world-famous coffee?' If you've had either of these two things, you probably know these descriptors are often wrong. In reality, that great haircut is terrible, and the world-famous coffee is unmemorable. This phrase of Trump's is similar to the above falsehoods. Trump uses the phrase 'believe me' like advertisers use inaccurate adjectives. Linguists term this type of phrase as a discourse marker, which signals to the audience they should pay attention to what the speaker is saying. Maybe not in Trump's case. CNN reports that Trump has blatantly lied more than 3000 times in the past year and a half. If you break that statistic down, that's almost seven fibs a day. During April and May 2018 Trump has averaged telling nine porky pies every day. If you drink the recommended eight glasses of water a day, you'll be going to the bathroom about as often as Trump lies.
