Trump wasn’t always so linguistically challenged. What could explain the change?

quote [ In interviews Trump gave in the 1980s and 1990s (with Tom Brokaw, David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey, Charlie Rose, and others), he spoke articulately, used sophisticated vocabulary, inserted dependent clauses into his sentences without losing his train of thought, and strung together sentences into a polished paragraph, which — and this is no mean feat — would have scanned just fine in print. ]

How Uber Uses Psychological Tricks
to Push Its Drivers’ Buttons

quote [ For months, when drivers tried to log out, the app would frequently tell them they were only a certain amount away from making a seemingly arbitrary sum for the day, or from matching their earnings from that point one week earlier. ]

In Conversation:
David Letterman

quote [ "So — I’m lonely, I can’t stop talking. This is like visitors’ day at prison for me." ]
