As you may know, I am a student of body language, aka nonverbal communication. I've been fascinated by Trump's use of certain gestures, and this video explains their meaning and function. At root, he has hypnotized a great number of people and most likely he did it with these gestures, not with the stunning illogic of his words.

Anacoluthon per wikipedia = an unexpected discontinuity in the expression of ideas within a sentence, leading to a form of words in which there is logical incoherence of thought.  It's how Trump talks, and can be useful for putting people in a stream of consciousness mode: less analytical, more suggestible.  Plural = anacolutha.  I've been studying up on hypnosis.  =-]
