If you are talking about Trump's speech, anyone with an 8th grade education (all his supporters) could understand Trump--his speeches--his lifestyle--his vulgarity--his bragging--his bully tactics--his adultery---his greed. Trump talks like he tweets. He prefers to link short, blocky words into other short, blocky words to create short, blocky sentences that he then stacks into short, blocky paragraphs. The text of his speech consisted of 8-9 word sentences. 5th grade vocabulary.
His speech was bleak and painted a pretty grim picture of the country he claims to love.

Trump lied about writing the speech, although it sounds like him. Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller wrote it and we all know what Bannon stands for: White Nationalism.

Dan Rather is an award-winning journalist who is highly regarded by his contemporaries. He is the son of a ditch digger from Houston. Through hard work Rather made his way through BA in journalism, then went to law school. In 1954 he joined the Marines. He joined the AP and eventually left Houston for NYC. He covered the Kennedy assassination, served as a foreign correspondant in London, covered the Vietnam War IN Vietnam, Watergate, and eventually joined 60 Minutes, & assumed Walter Cronkites position on the CBS evening news.
And you have the audacity to say he's a useless stupid pretentious putz??

Dan Rather has done more in his lifetime than most will ever do, so shut your pie-hole, you stupid pretentious putz!!

That is all fine and dandy....But, then Dan Rather went and blew it all when he ran with the GW Bush's phony DD214..... Which leads anybody who is thinking a little to ask.."What else did he lie about??".. Talk about fake phony news.... Right there it was....

What I found so impressive about Trump's speech was that the Donald only referred to himself as I twice...compared to Obama's....I....I.....I.....I.... ee....yi...ee....yi....yo....

So a person has a clean slate, has worked hard to achieve a great reputation, proven record, respected--then comes across a story which could be construed as powerful. He runs with it. It turns out to be "Rathergate" a LONG LONG time ago and the piece has been forgotten. Or to put it another way: What did Rather know — and when did he know it? There are still unanswered questions.

Dubya, on the other hand, convicted of drunk driving, lied repeatedly to cover up, sex, drugs and rock and roll--wealthy family that bailed him out of trouble time and time again--lied about any number of things as POTUS--including weapons of mass destruction and he gets a pass, but Rather doesn't?? Bush led all of us to wonder...WHAT ELSE DID HE LIE ABOUT??

Have I misunderstood your point? About phony news? Don't you want our press to publish questionable information? Shouldn't they let us know what they find and let the public decide what's relevant and what's not? AND to make a finer point, why was it okay to perpetuate incredible stories about Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton...?

many moon's ago I had an old Italian Concrete Contractor explain it to me....."You can builda da bridges for 40 years"...."Do they call you da bridge builder??"....No..... " But sucka da cock once, and right away you da cocksucker"..THE Point is for all the good journalism Rather probably did, that one known fuck-up finished his credibility....

Your doing it again....But just to show I really do love 'ya....I'll just say you are ah sidetrackin agin..."

It was because of the high esteem that Rather had that created such skepticism when he aided and abetted the lie about W...The people who were digging up the questionable trash about Obama, Michelle and Hillary were not really taken seriously, because they were not of the stature of Rather.....

WHOA now. You're the one who brought up Georgie--not me. BY bringing up the Shrub you invited compare and contrast. You also brought up reputations. Why can't I respond to your subject matter?? That's not distraction. It's good debate.
Not side trackin'......debatin'.
And here's another point. When you say "because of the high esteem".....yadda....ARE you actually saying that Jr.s crappy esteem gave him a hall pass---even as president?? AND are you actually stating that PEOPLE didn't take seriously the birther movement??

I love the bridge story, but.....save it for Oprah. Rather did not build a bridge. He followed a story about a president and that story is still unclear. Besides, people move on and SHOULD be given a second chance. If that were NOT the case, Trump would NOT be the 45th president. Gotcha!!

Trump's speech was a campaign speech, because that's all he's got.
He tells you how great everything is going to be, he doesn't tell you what he's going to do, because he doesn't know, this was never supposed to happen, he was supposed to be launching Trump TV now, not this, this thing is something he never planned on, and seriously, he doesn't have a clue what to do next, he's just making it up as he goes along.
The promises seem to keep people happy, so he'll keep promising greatness, for as long as that works.

But delivering greatness? Only the willingly self deluded give that a shot in hell....

We were already great and working towards getting even greater. Fuhrer trump is nothing but hot air, as you stated, he tells how great everything is going to be but never how he is going to make it better.

Trump claimed he was going to drain the swamp.
Reality, trump made the swamp bigger, deeper and smellier.

Trump said he was going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.
Now he says he will build a wall and we will pay for it.
Reality, no wall will be built and if it were to be built it won't stop anyone.

Trump said the government was controlled by lobbyists and he was going to get rid of them.
Reality, he has lobbyist in his inner circle from day one.

Trump said he was going to stop the corruption in our government.
Reality,Trump advisors and inner circle being investigated for ties with Russia.
Rex Tillerson, close ties to Putin and stands to make billions if trump drops sanctions against Russia.

Betsy DeVos, nominated for Secretary of education, knows NOTHING about public education except she is against it, never attended public school, has no education background, owns businesses that supply text books to schools and online education, wants to privatize education, She is about as crooked as you can get, she owes over 5 million in fines for illegally funneling campaign funds, is an extreme bible thumper. DeVos donated 5.2 million to "Focus on the Family" which is an extreme conservative bible thumping organization that is anti everything, you can go to the link below to read about them.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focus_on_the_Family

Rick Perry, total idiot, can't remember name of department he wants to eliminate and now nominated to be head of.

Ben Carson, believes the pyramids were built to store grain and thinks the earth is only six thousand years old.

You can check out all Trumps inner circle and nominees at the link below.
