"They're driving in and they're not coming through checkpoints, because you can't have three or four people in the back with tape over your mouths and your hands tied and drive past someone who is checking out your van...The fact is if we don't have barriers, walls, call them what you will, very strong barriers where people can not any longer drive right across. They have unbelievable vehicles. They make a lot of money. They have the best vehicles you can buy. They have stronger, bigger and faster vehicles than our police have and that ICE have and that Border Patrol have. They're pretty good at that. They have areas they go to. It's like a highway."
Donald Trump

Donald J. Trump is:

(X) - A Blithering Idiot.
(X) - Mentally Ill.
(X) - Ignorant As S***.
(X) - All Of The Above.

Maybe not the right website to be making fun of people's speech patterns ?

1. I think he imagines something.
2. He relates what he's imagining.
3. He leaves out lots of details.
4. So, his speech appears to lack cohesion.

The sad thing is that if he gets impeached and convicted on the things that are being currently investigated, he will likely be sent to a mental health care facility rather than prison.

It is rather telling that so many of his cabinet members and military leaders have left their jobs because of his behavior. This is clear evidence that there is instability in his leadership capabilities.

Perhaps this is not the right website to be an apologist for Trump, either.

This topic is about calling people with unusual speech patterns names like "idiot", and "mentally-ill", because of their unusual speech patterns.

This is the abuse that ASD people encounter all their lives.

I am "defending" TRUMP, because this is directly offensive to WP members.

No, you are defending Trump because you are a fan of his, and people are saying bad things about him.

You forgot to give as an option, "dementia".

This is personal for me.

I have the same problem of "cohesive speech".

I use to write about it on this website. I never learned a name for it.

That's why I am in the STEM field, because I can't function in any job that requires good speech skills.

Attack the position the person is maintaining, not the person maintaining it please.

I started a poll in PP&R on whether or not people are personally offended by criticism of Trump.

Knock your socks off.

As a person with a speech disorder, I have to agree with that.

Do you relate to Trump solely on the basis of a speech impediment?

Really?

Does that omit this rule: 2. Personal attacks.
This includes insinuation, ridicule and personal insults, regardless of whether direct or indirect. Attacking an opinion, belief or philosophy is acceptable, but attacking the person making the comments is not.

I'm sure you know one reason why that rule exists is because when it's broken, threads turn into off topic crap-fests that end up getting locked.

Relating to Trump doesn't have anything to do with it.
