Trump's father paid for ALL his grades, so he can appear smart he has no formal education, he speaks like an adolescent that just started talking.

Trump is so boring when he talks. When he talks, he says absolutely nothing of substance and usually he's just saying the same things every single day.
He has no new thoughts or ideas to spark your interest and he doesn't want to be taught or even try to learn anything new himself because he believes he knows everything about everything already. Thing is, he knows nothing about anything, and it shows.

Honestly not only is he not presidential in his speech, but just as a senior citizen adult who supposedly went to the best schools he talks like he barely finished school.

I saw an interview with a Trump supporter out in Durdleville Indiana or wherever it was. The interviewer asked them "why do you like Donald Trump?" and he said "cos he don't use none of that fancy talk".

Yes, quite.

He wouldn't be anything without daddy money.

His constant need to be an Alpha is because he's such a weak a$$ beta. And that's being generous. He's more a gamma or a delta. Never seen anyone with such a fragile ego.

Not "oddly" at all. It's part and parcel of the man's entirely juvenile nature. God help us.
