Don Lemon: Trump Sounded Like He Didn't Know Meaning Of The Words, Used Big Words to Impress


CNN's Don Lemon analyzed President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night. Lemon praised the way President Obama delivered a speech compared to the way it sounds when President Trump delivers an address.

"To me it sounds like a speech that was written for someone that he was reciting, and there were some big words and phrases that I don't think that he actually connected to," Lemon. 'If you just listen to the speech."

"It didn't sound like his voice because when you look at when he speaks extemporaneously you learn a lot about people," Lemon said. "The way President Obama speaks extemporaneously was very similar in the way he spoke," gave speeches. The way President Bush spoke extemporaneously was similar to the way he gave speeches. The way President Trump speaks extemporaneously is not the same as what he said tonight. It sounded to me, and I thought he sounded very presidential, this is a speech written by a college student for someone else trying to use big words to impress the person who is reciting it did not know the meaning of the words. That's how it sounded?"

"That's my assessment if you just listened to it. Go back and listen to it," he added."

"I'm talking about his words. I'm not saying anything bad about him. But I don't think it was in his voice," Lemon would later defend his summation of Trump's speech.
