Agelbert NOTE: Trisomy 21 is an inherited condition (Down syndrome) that is not limited to lack of normal vocabulary skills. People with this used to be called "Mongoloids". Thankfully, that abusive term has been eliminated from civilized discourse.

The term Mongolian idiocy and similar terms have been used to refer to a specific type of mental deficiency associated with the genetic disorder now more commonly referred to as Down syndrome. The use of these terms has largely been abandoned because of their offensive and misleading implications about those with the disorder.

BUT, this excellent anecdote sheds some light on a particularly offensive and arrogant man we have all been forced to read about and listen to. ENJOY!    :D
 
How good an orator is Donald Trump?

Nikki Primrose, Donald Trump? God help us all. 

Updated July 13, 2017

I have a sweet and beautiful aunt who just so happens to have Trisomy 21. Her name is Karen and she is in her forties, but her intellectual capabilities are more like those of a seven year-old. Her vocabulary is very simple and I'd estimate that 95% of her speech consists of fewer than 200 words.

My 6 year-old nephew Sam loves Karen, and they consider themselves BFFs (best of friends). Yesterday we were in the kitchen and a clip of Trump giving a rambling speech in the Rose Garden was playing on TV. I made a comment about how ridiculous he sounded, and Sam wagged his Cheeto covered finger at me and sternly told me not to say things like that. I had no idea the little dude had become a Trumpkin, so I asked him why. He put on his big boy voice and explained that “we don't make fun of people like Karen”.

When we asked why he thought the orange man on TV was like Karen, he said it was because he looked and spoke like her. We asked him to elaborate, and he said he looked like an old grown-up, but he sounded like “a little kid”. So according to Sam, Trump is not a great orator.
