Before you get completely inundated by press “reactions” to President Trump’s remarks today to the United Nations, here is a link to a transcript of what the man actually said:  

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/09/19/remarks-president-trump-72nd-session-united-nations-general-assembly.

I personally think that we tend to get a little too much edited reactions, these days, and not enough unabridged texts.   So, without further ado, “here you go.”

To me, if you read the entire thing in context, I think that it’s a pretty well-written speech and maybe a good wake-up call.   I sincerely hope that it has some of its apparently-intended effects.



Thanks, but I don't need your transcript. I watched the whole thing in real time - and couldn't be more horrified.

Also, see Les_Kloo above

Personally, I think that Simon and Garfunkel would be embarrassed ...

Oh, come on. “We’d like to help you learn to punctuate.” You have to admit that that was pretty good; to the point and perfect cadence. By the way, and in that vein, you don't need to italicize unless you're writing in a foreign language or quoting someone besides yourself. Also, why is there an ellipsis where the end of your sentence should be? There ya go.... (four dots if you end a sentence with an ellipsis, OK?)

Personally, it surprises me to learn that you’re familiar with the concept of “embarrassment.”

My music is much better than it sounds.
