January 20th 2017 marked the day that president elect Donald Trump took his oath to office. Perhaps one of the most controversial electoral processes in the history of the United States’ presidency, the possible implications of Donald Trump’s leadership will most likely make this one for the history books. His speech seemed surprisingly reasonable, astonishingly efficient, and very impactful in comparison to what many were expecting from him, because of the negative and possible detrimental image he has created in the minds of many Americans. Regardless, Donald Trump delivered a strong, decisive speech using unifying diction, well directed symbolism and varied syntax.

“The length of your education is less important than its breadth, and the length of your life is less important than its depth” by Marilyn Vos Savant is a quote that I hold very true to myself. All of my life I’ve believed that life isn’t about the breaths I take, it’s about the moments that take my breath away. I feel as if my believe fits right into the quote by Ms. Savant as she compares that believe to the importance of education. Many successful people, like Arne Duncan, have said that postsecondary education is extremely important when pursuing success in America’s economic system. I fully believe that thought and that is why I hold the value of education to a very high level.
In his article “Only Trump Can Trump Trump” (2016), Thomas L. Friedman argues that Donald Trump is the only one who can “trump Trump” or ruin himself. Friedman supports his position by providing evidence on the mishaps of the G.O.P and using his personal experience as credible evidence; he also utilises data that he words into a sarcastic and incendiary tone which provokes anger and irritation towards Trump and the G.O.P from his readers. Friedman wishes to influence his audience to dislike Trump and see the G.O.P as people who are infantile, hypocritical and compulsive by his flagrant diction and his excessive usage of tone; his dislike of the Republicans’ ideas and actions is made clear through his incredibly critical and sarcastic tone, he continuously devalues
Malcolm X famously said, “The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power, because they control the minds of the masses”. Although the modern media is powerful, it is always changing not only technologically, but in the way journalists report and act. Commentary over the last several years has centered on the negative changes of the media that journalists are unethical, stories are approval driven, and opinion is included in the news.
“Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you 've gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured - and they overcame them.” (Obama 6) In the speech Obama had presented at the graduation class of 2013 at Morehouse College, he wants them to remember their struggles and be able to overcome them to do what is right. Obama uses a lot of rhetorical appeal such as pathos, such as the fact that he did not have a father figure in his life, yet he reached the top position in the country after years of hard work and support from his single mother, and grandparents. The second most effective rhetorical appeal is ethos,
Throughout the speech Bush uses many sources to that strengthen his credibility and appeals to ethos. To introduce the speech Bush started with an Anaphora “Our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack.” Bush uses the word our to make the country feel as one and be together. He also uses anaphora in the sixth paragraph, he said “I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened.” Bush does this to help unify the country during this hard time, he knew many ordinary people had been affected wanted to make sure that everybody knew who to pray for. He begins the third paragraph with anaphoras like
In order to accomplish his purpose, the writer of this speech used diction and tone to show sorrow for the families of the men and women whose lives were lost on the Columbia and organized the speech by talking about how the lives lost will not affect moving forward in space advances. The writer expresses his grief for the family by using “great sadness” and naming the seven astronauts who died on this mission. While setting a tone of grief for these astronauts families, George W. Bush also organizes the speech by talking about how the men and women knew the risks of their travel. He first explains his feelings of loss and mourning for the men and women who lost their lives, but also says that this tragedy will not be a setback for space travel.
Most people know the fourth amendment as a protection from unreasonable search and seizure. The constitution its self says “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause…” (). What this means in terms of a search is if law enforcement wants to search your house, vehicle or residence they must obtain permission, or a search warrant. A warrant is issued by a judge or magistrate and it will require probable cause which would be a reasonable belief or fair probability that something illegal will be found or evidence to a crime will be found.

President Donald Trump. Even to those who had voted for Trump this election, I doubt you ever expected to hear those words four years ago. Now added to the great list of men that lead this beautiful, that slots among Honest Abe, The American Cincinnatus, Old Hickory, and Father of the Constitution, is The Tumpster. Dana Milbank's mocking article “In which Trump discovers some guy named Frederick Douglass” Donald Trump is contrasted to the expectation of how leaders perform and act by the juxtaposition of the expectation, the allusion of similar incidents, and the situational irony of the thirteen days that he has been in office.
In her memoir The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls describes the events of her life as being below her own personal standards.

During a speech delivered the day after the Pearl Harbor attack, FDR says, “Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States was suddenly attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan”. On December 7, 1941, the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japanese military forces. This was an act intended to intimidate the United States, and scare them from entering the war. But, in his January 6, 1942 State of the Union Address, FDR utilizes anaphora and flag waving to amplify the American spirit and effectively reassure the American people.
By now, anyone who has paid attention to this presidential election cycle understands how Donald Trump behaves.
Authors use rhetorical writing to get their points across to the audience in a variety of ways. This particular article, Donald Trump Just Stopped Being Funny by Matt Taibbi, published on RollingStone.com on August 21, 2015, provides multiple examples of rhetorical writing.

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.
