Even many Trump supporters probably don't consider just how good he is at impromptu public speaking, because he makes it look so ridiculously easy. He delivers rapid-fire replies and numbers on a range of economic, medical, military, and other topics off the top of his head, along with a healthy dose of humor, without a Teleprompter, and barely ever even saying "umm."

His time in reality TV certainly would have helped with this skill, but more than that, it's just innate intelligence. "The Great Communicator" Reagan, even with his experience in movies and TV, did not have the type of natural ability Trump displays on a daily basis with the press, and before this time period, in rallies. The fact that Trump had zero political office or military experience and became president is proof enough of that.

barely ever even saying "umm."

His "umms" are when he repeats a phrase or says something like "And we have the best, most awesome health care system in the world."

Most of his verbal habits that the media attack him for are because he is isn't speaking off a teleprompter.

As someone going into the world of media, I have actually learned a lot from him in this. It fits with his “never apologize for anything” mantra. Instead of giving an “um”, he sorta of rewinds 5 words and turns what others would have be an “uh” or “um” into essentially a point of emphasis about his previous phrase while resetting up his next thought

But the thing is, they're endearing. I love listening to GEOTUS. Like a favourite grandpa who gives no shits

No just that, when he repeats his sentences or injects new superlatives, it makes his sentences extremely hard to taken out of context.

He is like a surfer carving up a wave swift turns of direction that captivates the listener and leaves the MSM trailing in his wake.

I love it when he cuts back close to the by playing ignorance to their underlying motives (like he did with Acosta the other day) and the power out back infringe of them with a subtle change in direction.

Best communicator I have seen.

No problem. Thought it was very relevant after the task force meeting today.

I noticed after Obama left office, he had this different look on his face when talking. It must be because he didnt have teleprompters. He was more wide eyed. Idk, i couldnt figure out why and this may be why.

Gotta ask: author Alfred Bester, or B5 bad guy Alfred Bester?

Author. I had just read The Demolished Man the day I made my reddit account and one thing led to another. I was making my way through a list of the top 100 Sci Fi novels at the time. Which, might be an idea for anyone sitting around in isolation right now.

Chodeus [S] 23 points ago

I love Rush. I don’t miss a minute of listening when he is on. He puts thoughts to words like it’s nothing!

12
Only_Rosie_ODonnell 12 points ago

That's why the left hates him so much and will try to smear him, unsuccessfully I should add.. You can't argue with him on substance or debate him straight up. He's eloquent and well researched.

slrpnls 1 point ago

I'm going to miss Rush when the day inevitably comes that he can't carry on. Mark Steyn is good but in a different way. Hannity was never my style and Beck is a joke.

2
Only_Rosie_ODonnell 2 points ago

I'm with you one hundred percent. It's crossed my mind many times. It'll be a very sad day when that happens. We can and should cherish him while we have him. I agree with you the others mostly. Nobody comes close to Rush. Oddly enough, Hannity went national the day before 9/11.

Yup, some of us are old enough to remember:

ZeroBama during BP Oil spill: "Duh-duh-duh."

ZeroBama during Fukushima: "Duh-duh-duh."

ZeroBama during debt ceiling crisis: "Duh-duh-duh."

ZeroBama during H1N1 crisis: "Duh-duh-duh."

ZeroBama during Benghazi: " Duh-duh-duh."

ZeroBama during Iran negotiations: "Duh-duh-duh."

Anyone else care to add?

Trump has been doing these 2 hour press conferences on weekends too. I think they might have skipped last Sunday, but it's been 7 days a week the last three weeks.

You know what Obama could do, though? Let Big Mike unload into his gay asshole every night. Take that, Drumpftards.

Rush is looking a little thin. :( Hope next week goes ok during his treatments.

Rooting for you Rush!!

Still looking good though considering the chemo has got to be kicking his ass. I know there are advancements now and meds to help the side effects, but it's still rough.

3
alfredbester 3 points ago

He had to quit the treatment because his legs swole up so much he was in agony. And he may be doing it without the strongest painkillers because of his issues.

Ah shit, I forgot about that. You can high doses of ibuprofen, etc., but it's not the same.

That one of the reasons. I never liked Obama. He never came out as genuine. He had a teleprompter to make him look great.

What did Rush mean the other day when he said if he told the listeners what he was really thinking about this, he’d be done on radio. What is it... that he is thinking, but can’t say?

4
alfredbester 4 points ago

That it was a deliberate attack by the Chinese to spread their inevitable economic collapse to the rest of the world. Hong Kong was about to blow and so was their economy. It was an engineered virus. And some people in our country were complicit with releasing a biological weapon of destruction on the entire world.

Things like that.

Rush should know, this situation would never have arisen under Obama. Maybe WuFlu would have gotten loose, but we all know there would never have been the widespread media-generated panic that is holding the entire country hostage.

2
Yucky 2 points ago

Rush is absolutely right. Most politicians are stage managed cucks. They just read scripts their staff writes for them. Trump is an entirely different animal, and the cucks just can't handle it.

Of course Reddit focuses on Fauci working 20 hour days, but doesn’t mention that POTUS has probably been working 25 hours a day.

Been saying this shit for years. Obama was a good "speaker" because he could read the shit out of a teleprompter.

Washington's Governor Inslee lasted for 15 minutes today. Each question was via teleconference and the caller was not allowed to speak after Inslee completely avoided answering their question. I learned nothing
