Talk like a forth grader, Trumpspeak
This isn't a surprise. Using the Flesch–Kincaid test https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flesch%E2%...lity_tests Donald Trump's verbal texts are rated between a 3rd and 4th grade level.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2...der-121340

The other Republican candidates are rated higher but no one was at the high school senior level. The highest was Ted Cruz at a 9th grade level.

Dodgy

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Uhhh. If they're at 4th grade level - I'd have to suspect some intelligence enhancing drugs.......

Yes. I admit my spelling is dreadful. Sadcryface It's a problem I've dealt with my entire life. I'm not running for president though.

I like to think they are just dumb otherwise it would mean they expect the average American to not understand anything above what 4th graders understand

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Trump's done an interview and admitted proudly that he hasn't changed a bit since first grade. Not surprised.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Nah you and the rest of us are screwed. Some American religious nutter is going to get the Presidency and nuke the world to bring about the Rapture.

RE: Talk like a forth grader, Trumpspeak
Trump speaks particularly simply, and his content is likewise simple minded. But this is true of most political candidates of all parties. So many of our presidents have been lawyers, current resident in the white house included, that either the profession noted for skilled and precise use of language has fallen into disrepair, or all presidential candidates are speaking to the least common denominator of their audience.
