Alternative Facts Orwellian Double Speak

This is double plus ungood.

Remember how one of the points of double speak was to limit vocabulary and streamline sentences so that a person could say what they had to in as few words as possible? I just realized that is what the Commander in Tweet is doing with his Twitter account.

3. Yep, pretty much...

Control language and you control how people think. The RW has been doing it for years. Check out Frank Luntz. Trump is just the latest.

4. Yes but

the question I have, what really makes me think about it, is whether tRump is a willing participant. Do you think he realized Twitter could be used for double speak? Maybe repukes just naturally gravitate toward the mechanisms of double speak.
