They both went back and forth at each other making sly remarks, and stating the facts to upgrade their candidacy stock. Trump bringing up Hillary’s email situation and Hillary putting Trump on blast for not paying his federal taxes. To make themselves clear on what they stood for, they made detailed explanations backed up by highly credible evidence. Each candidate both used rhetorical devices to persuade their followers to agree on the ideas they had to fix problems within the country and they used logic fallacies to inaccurately convince their followers. Both candidates made more statements directed towards each other than they did on what they actually stood for.
How is it that, even after how the media has portrayed Trump people still feel he is a better fit to run this country over hillary Clinton. Supporters are insisting that a recount should be in order.

But that shows how the media influences people.

In October 2013, for example, Jon Stewart hosted Kathleen Seblius, The US secretary of Health and Human services, and criticized Obamacare for delaying compliance with the bill for big businesses but not individuals. He analyzed the fact that these businesses can lobby for their interests while individuals cannot. Although some coverage of this issue made news sources, Stewart presented it at length with an authentic source and in a comedic and memorable fashion. He caught viewers’ attention

As stated in Sam Robert’s article, “News of McCarthy’s accusations against the state dept. of president Harry Truman sent shock waves across the nation.” McCarty’s statements made him look like a gallant anticommunist and gave him power. As a matter of fact, he was considered more of a witch hunter.
In the article “Is Starbucks’s Howard Schultz the Liberal Donald Trump” the author does a remarkable job of using rhetorical tools and skills in order to help convince the audience. Many different techniques are used in the article in order to get the audience to believe that Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz, is in fact a great fit for presidential candidate. The author, David Graham, makes it seem as if he himself studied under both Aristotle and Cicero by using many examples of their methods very effectively. He uses inductive and deductive logic, along with code words such as “venti” that only avid coffee drinkers and Starbucks enthusiasts will know. All three arguments, ethos pathos, and logos are used in order to make Graham’s essay optimal and very persuasive, along with skills that make this article a prodigious example of clever rhetoric executed by the author.
What if one were to tell state that two plus two equals five or that war is peace? One would probably say that the speaker is wrong or completely crazy. This is the case in the world of George Orwell’s novel, 1984, here these statements are the complete truth. In 1984, Orwell presents his readers with a dystopian world that is under the tyrannical control of Big Brother and the Inner Party. The Party brainwashes the citizens of this society by completely changing the history of the world to show themselves as the greatest thing in the world.
Fallacies in political speeches: Donald Trump announces he is running for president. Donald Trump’s one very distinct “ability” is making a vast amount of people react to what he says.

So for those who are not yet sure about his sincerity, it only takes a not to deep analysis of his speeches to spot serious fallacies.

Baker makes trump seem ill minded in here and i completely agree with him. This is because throughout this whole column baker just uses quote after quote straight from trump's mouth, or should i say his twitter feed, about what he thinks of himself. One quote from trump that really got to me was that he was a “VERY successful businessman” and television star who won the presidency on his first try. “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!” If baker was trying to point out that trump was not very intelligent in this article, which in my opinion that is what he is doing, he nailed it right on the head with just that quote. I say this because baker pointed out that trump thinks he makes a good and smart president just because he was the host of a reality television show eleven years
