Democrats should stop focusing on Trump's "plain speak" and only focus on his lies and failures...

When I watched Trump's press conference, I could definitely see his appeal to the middle America, anti-intellectual, tell it like it is crowd. While most of us think that the president of the United States should be more refined, in your everyday life, do you shout down the average joe when they speak plainly or don't display a high degree of education? The average American isn't ivy league nor is the average person exceptionally eloquent. When we attack his plainness, we attack the very thing that makes them bond with him. He's a billionaire, spoiled brat that is coming off to them as an average joe because we spend so much time mocking his lack of refinement instead of just keeping the focus on his lies and his failure.

GW Bush came off as a bumbling fool to many of us, yet he won re-election. Any time we switch the focus from his lies and his bad policies, then to a large swath of people, we're just coming off as liberal snobs and strengthen the bond they have with their anti-PC, "common man" President.
