To Understand Trump Talk, You Must Speak Outer Borough
The Federalist ^ | 1/8/18 | David Marcus

Posted on 01/08/2018 1:36:06 PM PST by Duke C.

Appearing on Fox News last week, actor Scott Baio explained a very important fact about President Trump’s rhetorical style. In responding to attacks on the president’s tone and and general fitness for office, Baio had this to say: “I’m going to help the media right now, okay, I’m going to try to help them…It’s not going to go anywhere, but I’m going to try to help them because they’ve called the president, the president has dementia, he’s and idiot, he’s not mature…I’m from Brooklyn, President Trump is from Queens. This is what we do. We mess with people. That’s it.”

Most of the country doesn't get this. New York Borough natives are natural born confrontational ball-busters...

I’m from Palo Alto, California (I’m an American Constitution loving patriot - go figure) and I understand EVERY WORD Trump speaks.

It’s the biggest issue I had, and have, with candidate and President Trump. I *HATE* that style, completely, utterly.

I want an erudite, unemotional leader with an absolute reverence for facts and the English language.

But I’ll take ‘winning’, I’m getting used to it. He’s the President and seems to be kicking ass, so crying all the way to the bank (to deposit my tax cut)..

I’ve been trying to tell people this ...”he is a New Yorker”. Even my NY friends don’t get it.

Sounds like New York City residents have learned valuable survival skills for navigating the treacherous society that is found in New York City.

What I mean to say is they know how to take it there. They can be a brick. They grill people. They don’t like dealing with a mad ratchet. They can be thirsty for a dumb good slice. Na’ mean?

It actually explains a lot to me too.

It’s NOT just people from the outer boroughs; it’s people from Manhattan too and I should know; it’s just that Manhattanites have a different accentg, is all. :-)

Chachi is right.
Anyone under 30 in New York would not have a clue.

Yet, the kind of messin’ Pres Trump is doing may only be understood by the people of his era. It’s becoming a lost art. To me, it brings back good memories, like going back home to a warm fireplace. The good old days.

Here’s another way of making the same point (linked as perhaps NSFW): https://imgur.com/gallery/RJpo4

"I’m from Brooklyn, President Trump is from Queens. This is what we do. We mess with people. That’s it.”

It toughens you up, builds esprit de corps, even among rivals. Snow flake America doesn't get polite ball busting amongst friends and rivals. Man they would loose it to hear cops busting one another when civilians aren't around...They ought to start here for an intro.... ;-)

Agree with you! Brash, etc. - not my style. But, it has obviously worked for him and others!

I was working with a cocky, no-excuse type guy from Alaska. He said something like he has worked all over the country - and the folks most like Alaskan’s are folks from New York City!

I’m not sure about that, as most folks I’ve worked with in Alaska are pretty laid back. But not this guy! So it might even be a regional thing in Alaska. But I suppose it might be “Hey - if I can survive and thrive in Alaska (or NYC) - I can be successful anywhere and I don’t need to take crap from anybody.”

I'm a born & raised Brooklynite, and I get him 110%. But then, I'm old school (50s/60s), not the new, de Blasio New Yorker type.

Not one single person in the MSM knows how to talk with Trump. NOT ONE! They are so stuck on themselves, on their vaunted arrogance, they cannot admit anyone is as knowledgeable as they are about anything. The truth, of course, is they are deeply ignorant. Their arrogance is exceeded only by their ignorance. The Wed night awards ceremony will be a kick in the head.
