Rhetorical Analysis Of Donald Trump's Sad, Lonely Life

835 Words4 Pages

Both “Donald Trump’s Sad, Lonely Life” by David Brooks and “The Art Of the Comeback: Donald Trump’ Debate W Propels Him Toward White House” by Matthew Boyle highlight the very intense presidential debates going on and illustrate how divided this country is. This election season has been one like no other so far with Donald Trump surprisingly winning the republican nominee even though he lacks much needed experience; versus Hillary Clinton whom most people expected to be the Democratic nominee and also has previous experience as the secretary of state. Both of these sources contain great favoritism and also contain a different purpose. This can be shown by the way that they describe the debate and how it reflects the media’s biased role by constantly presenting propaganda. Both of these articles are clearly biased and should not be used to decide on who to vote for; this is shown through their uses of rhetorical strategies such as tone, diction and audience. David Brooks source “Donald Trump’s Sad, Lonely life” is evidently biased towards Hillary Clinton and he uses a negative tone to attempt to sway people away from voting for Trump. “He was a germophobe through most of his life and cut off contact with others, and now I just picture him alone in the middle of the night, tweeting out hatred.” This quote shows how David Brooks uses strong diction such as “germophobe” and “cut of contact with others” to create a negative tone unlike source A towards Donald Trump.
