Listen: President Trump, Humpty Dumpty, Donald Trump discussed on Todd Schnitt
"Zero. So the term on speak. I'm opening up the term I bring it out of the graveyard. Okay. It's been buried in the grave for a long time. And you know. It's unsafe being something and. It's not used. You know, the unspeakable you've spoken. It's it's not used that much. But when I use the term on speak. I'm giving a kind of old meaning and its new meaning at the same time because speaks kind of obsolete. Nobody really uses it. And so when you're talking about a retraction of what's been said or unspeakable what you've said, it's interesting to note now that win. Win celebrities and Rockstars, and and and and politicians say something. They unspeakable it if it's something that's offensive. They unspeakable if it's something that may be misunderstood. Talk show host don't have that some actors don't have that Simpson. Liberties don't have it. I mean, look at Roseanne you look at Megan Kelly. You look at. You look at these these people and you look at how they can't unspeakable they've spoken. And so when Roseanne said what she did in a tweet. She said, well, I'm on Ambien. And this is why it happened. All no Ambien doesn't make you a racist. But that doesn't make her a racist. Either. By saying something like that it makes her a person who speaks ratio or has a racial stereotype that she's putting forward that that she thought was funny. Nobody thought it was funny. Megan Kelly on the other hand, she talked about black face. Not funny, not acceptable. I'm sure at the time. She thought it was acceptable to talk about or she thought what she was saying was interesting or funny or or unique way of looking at it. But no, no, no people saw through it and realized no Megan Kelly your insensitive. So she said I was sorry. Sorry didn't cut it the network severed their ties with her. I mean anymore apology tours aren't gonna cut it anymore. Mean doing your apology tour during you're doing your I'm sorry, you're not gonna cut it anymore because. Now, we're in an era of. Yeah. You say you're going to say. You need to say I'm sorry, or I'm wrong or defend what you're saying. But you don't defend you just double down on it. And if you doubled down on some people say well good for him. Good for you. See the reason why I'm thinking of this word on speak today is because well I came up with it because I heard the quote from President Trump and the media's having a field day on this. Okay. I don't know. Trump was on ABC news. Was interviewed on ABC news. And he said something that says that he always wants to tell the truth when he can he tells the truth, he says, and basically the truth is told under certain conditions that cannot be unsaid that these said, well, I always wanted to tell the truth. And when I can I tell the truth, and what's interesting about that statement is while the media is having a heyday with it. He's telling the truth. And this is because I'm defending Donald Trump. If he's I always want to tell the truth when I can I tell the truth, meaning, yeah, I li- sometimes there was a very clever way of saying, I li-. President Trump tells lies. He just told us that and that sentence. Have you read through the sentences? See what the unspeakable is there? And that sentence. I always want to tell the truth when I can I tell the truth, meaning I always like to tell the truth but under certain conditions. I can't tell the truth. So I'll say let's see Trump saying that he telling the truth. But no, that's not what he said he told the truth. It's just said I li- sometimes without even telling you that he lies, and that's what unspeakably is on speakers is a very clever way of speaking. I always want to tell the truth when I can I tell the truth. I mean, sometimes it turns out to be where something happens. It's different. Or there's a change. I tell the truth. Something happens. There's a change. What he's saying is is I lie. Pick that up anybody picking that up. Donald Trump says that he's a liar. But he said it while telling the truth, that's clever unspeakable strategic context. It's amazing. How how no one picks up on that on strategic context. Basically the truth is told under certain conditions when he uttered these words ABC news. He expounded upon his words by saying. And sometimes it turns out to be where something happens this different. Or there's a change. But I always like to be truthful. So what he did is. He went back, and he instead of recanting what he said, he expounded upon it more and the media, of course, has had a field day with this quote, saying, well, you know. Trump should always be telling the truth. I heard that shouldn't our president always be telling the truth. No, no. He shouldn't be always telling the truth. I'd say that about Barack Obama. I'd say that about George W Bush. I said that about Bill Clinton. No, a president does not always have to tell the truth, especially with sensitive issues. So Trump was telling the truth. But he also said I lie at the same time. He was telling truth. That's what unspeakable made. I mean, look. Those I don't know if anybody's read Alice in wonderland. Okay. I mean, I know everybody's familiar with the movie the Disney movie. But this reminds me of. A passage in Allison wonderland. L speaks with a lot of characters. Right. And she speaks to the Cheshire cat. She speaks with the mad Hatter. She speaks with the March hare. But she also speaks with Humpty Dumpty. Humpty dumpty. Of course, said a lot of things, and and Alice was saying, well, I want to know about your choice of words, I can understand you clearly because you have this ability. To twist words in Humpty Dumpty says well, I use the word. And he was very angry when he say he's kind of scornful toward when I use a word. It means just what I choose it to mean. Neither more nor less. The question is. You know, whether you can make words mean, so many different things. And the question is said Humpty Dumpty, which is to be master. That's all so I can say whatever I want. And I can choose it to mean, anything I can choose your demean this or that or whatever it's just that. If I'm the master of this type of speak. No one is going to know exactly what I mean. So there's a bit of ambiguity right there. So walking that line. Walkie that line of either lying or telling the truth is being a master abundance speak. The media. Does it when they exclude they exclude things and you're thinking, well, if they don't talk about it. It's not important. No, it's important. Okay. But. What trump? I mean a lot of politicians. Do they say what Trump does and what several other politicians have done? They kind of do the Humpty Dumpty thing. And some do a better than others. Trump is pretty good at it. Okay. And that's why a lot of people say, well, he keeps his promises. Yes. He does. He keeps a lot of promises. But he also doesn't keep a lot of promises. But the the terrible thing is when the promises aren't kept the media's right on it. And so they drown out all the good things. He's doing, but but see that's the thing is that you don't you're so used to hearing the bad stuff. It's it's not like. You know, you wake up one day and you want to rip the president. You wanna kind of jab him a bit and say come on, you know, making fun of his hair or any of the things they do. It's kind of like easy pickings that's low lying fruit. Okay. But to actually sit down. And listened to him and lampoon him. No one can do it. You know, why? Because they lost the they they they stopped during the they didn't do it quite well with Brock Obama. And so they can't do it quite well with Trump. They're out of practice. Because it was hard to do it for Barack Obama. Because people say, oh, that's insensitive. That's racist. That's this. That's and that's why they couldn't do it. I mean, I think it was Dana Carvey that talked about that said that, you know, there was a time when they were told be very careful on how you how you Lou lampoon the president because you know, maybe looked as insensitive looked at his racist to me look at it as whatever. I mean, there's so many things that could have lampoon President Obama on. But they didn't do it. And they think they're doing you the President Trump, but they're not they're just being cruel. And it's almost like attacking the president within like the first ten minutes of any show. It'd be a talk show at night or a news. It's a requirement now. It was a requirement to attack the president's a requirement to use weaponized words against the president will the president should tell the truth all the time. No, the president shouldn't. The president told the truth. He says, yes, I try to be honest. I try to tell the truth. And he says when I when I can I tell the truth meaning. Yeah, I li-, but you can come right on say, hey, always want to tell the truth. When I can I tell the truth. I mean, sometimes it turns out to be where something happens. It's different. Or there's a change. When I use the word. It means just what I choose to mean. Nothing more nothing less. The question is which is the master. That's all. Humpty Dumpty said that in Lewis Carroll's Allison wonderland said that to Alice. It's the same thing. I mean now, I'm not gonna pick on Donald Trump. For what he said because the media is doing a great job of doing that. In fact, I find it fascinating that I don't think anybody's going to take the time to tell you that. That's how word salad is made. And how people fall for it down. The media's is like I throw out the fish and the sharks. Come and they take it. And that's the media. So what happens is is the president says something. He may bend the language a little bit by comfy Dumpty. He uses words as the call and the media that plays off of their own egos. Gives response using an equally destructive strategic content or context. They're very good at weaponising words, and they couch it in a warped context. And then they say it without recanting it, that's how the media does it with Trump. Does it man he comes up with some clever epithet, and he called somebody like crooked Hillary or something and it sticks. Because he know that these things are going to get his base excited. And that's why you hear things like locker up CNN sucks because these are things that have been generated in the rallies. Now, they'll say, well, this is creating rhetoric that's responsible for all of this horrible stuff. That's going on in the country right now. But know that he a conspiracy theory that is what the accused me Alex Jones and others of doing when they do it worse. And when they do it, it just seems to get it. They get a written excuse because of the unspeakable. Okay. So I pointed out how Donald Trump does on speak. And I'm sure people are all getting like defend Trump. You don't need to defend Trump over this. Okay. You don't need to defend him. You don't need to come to his you don't need to come to his aid. You don't need to say. All this. We didn't mean. No, no, no, just sit back, relax and try and savor."
