New York -- Presidential hopeful Donald Trump is changing the way America talks and thinks about presidential politics. New words and phrases are continually popping up on the campaign trail. They are being generated by the candidate himself as well as by a media corps that is only beginning to put lyrics to the music of Donald Trump's rhetoric. Here are some examples:
Demagogue. A politician who promises to deliver on the most outrageous demands of the voting public in order to maximize his popularity. There's a little bit of demagoguery in every American politician, but Donald Trump is far and away the clear leader in this category.
Huge. It's all a matter of scale. It takes a small mind to think that size alone matters. Perhaps that's why this is Donald Trump's favorite superlative.
Vitriole. No, this is not Donald's hair tonic. Rather, it's what's in his head. It describes how he heaps verbal abuse on his friends and enemies when he disagrees with their point of view.
Silver spoon. A child of wealthy parents is said to be born with a silver spoon in its mouth. Trump, the son of a millionaire real estate mogul, was blessed with an entire table setting.
Atlantic City. Trump's favorite home away from home, until his casinos started to tank. How is it possible for one to lose money when running a casino? Perhaps Donald's next business book will ponder that question.
You're fired! A typical example of Trump vitriol.
Humpty Dumpty Moment. Trump's insistence on building a giant wall on the Mexican border may lead to his Humpty Dumpty Moment. At that point, all the kings horses and all the kings men won't be able to get him an election win.
Period. How to end a sentence or whatever.
Place your bets, America. Rejected campaign slogan.
Make America great again! Actual campaign slogan. See above for "demagogue."
