Trump and the English Language

For those of us who miss having a President able to mangle and abuse the English language with aplomb because there is no Bush in the White House, the choice is obvious. There is, of course, Donald Trump, who displays his dexterity with the English language in an angry letter to the New York Times to complain about the coverage he gets from one of his pet peeves, columnist Gail Collins. Yup, that’s the one he says has a “face of a dog.”

He wrote: “Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers), is not at a very high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong!”
