it Is your subconscious mind that takes the control when Donald Trump acts in free dressage with parallel universes? Or know he simply is not what he is talking about? Questions need on to the after that Donald Trump has given a new interview where he obviously is not on the notes in the conversation with interviewer Jonathan Swan, aired on HBO earlier in the week. Swan praised for having kept the mask during the 40 minutes long, often absurd, the interview.
One of the methods for the dressing of the Trump is the oldest tool in the journalistic toolbox; oppfølgingsspørsmålet. There is something Trump often slipping away, because he tend to ignore follow-up question at the press conferences. But he may not in the same way do in a personal interview. As for example here:
Trump repeat his mantra that the united STATES has tested more than any other, and that is the reason why there are so many registered infected by the corona virus in the united STATES. And instead of saying, that he cares, that the united STATES tests for many, so hang he claim on the other, and says:
- There are people who say that we have tested for a lot.
The statement grabs the Swan approach, and follow up with the simple question:
- Read the manuals. Read the books, answers the Trump.
Trump ignores the question. For there is no answer. No scientist or medications have proposed less testing in the fight against the virus. But even if Trump will have less testing to embellish the statistics, then he will turn the political coin that it was under him testing started:
When I took over we had not a test, " says Trump. But why should it be tested for one or three years ago, the world was the first note of the virus in January. Then continued Trump with one of his tirader that the united STATES has control over the virus.
How, thousands of americans die every day? Says Swan.
- They die. It is true. And it is what it is, " says Trump.
Then grabs Trump after a few papers, and now the interview towards what should be its climax. Trump:
Let's look at some graphs. See here, we is lower in several categories. The world.
" Says Trump, without ending either a sentence or reasoning.
the World? Ask The Swan.
Europe, answers the Trump.
The Trump samples with their graphs is to measure the number of deaths in relation to them that is tested, instead of to measure the only thing interesting, the number of deaths in relation to population size, where the united STATES and Brazil comes worst out.
- You can't do that, " says Trump, referring to Swans way-to-read statistics on.
Why not? Answer Swan.
No, why not? at least It is like that the rest of the world seems numbers are the most relevant. But not Trump. It is already more than three and a half years ago, the then-central Trump-adviser Kellyanne Conway introduced the term "alternative facts" about Trump's lies. The people who follow with have found out that the Us 45. president ljuger almost 25 times every day on average in its alternative facts-universe. But in the Trumps universe is not only lies, but also the special way to express themselves, relevant.
last summer called I language-nestoren, professor Sylfest Lomheim, after Trump had met Prince Charles in London and talked about the earth's challenges.
- No, the Trump see's not what he's even talking about. There is no logic and no coherence in what the man says. Linguistically this is complete hopeless, " said Lomheim. The same we could say about this week's interview.
And here we have just kept us to the questions that concerns about the virus, and have overlooked all the other spices that show inkonsistens and confusion that Trump benevolent spreads around the date the last interview he has given.You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
