Arguing, Brains, and Crime: Emily of the State @EmilyGorcenski Trump doesn't speak in full, coherent sentences, because he's speaking a different language, one his followers understand but we don't. 2/19/17, 6:51 AM 86 RETWEETS 223 LIKES Emily of the State It's fascinating in a "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" sense.

The onus is on the station to disprove a question like this, but instead they throw a vague, twisted statement out and have two opposing people argue as if both sides of the conversation are equal in value and truth. The subject of the question then the non-clear rebuttal makes the answer seem obvious that Obama is killing your sweet granny and grandpa when they go for a flu shot. I say all this because this network has been grooming their followers to fill in the blanks from vagueness this entire time. Trump just knows how to fill in just enough words to start the thought process down that way. He’s taken what Fox News started and perfected it.
