Additional analysis of Trump’s recent speech following a guilty verdict taken starting from the 11:08 mark to show that there is something amiss about the rhetoric and diction used.

And they got a judge, Judge Martian.
Who was responsible for another case.
So it was also brought.
It destroyed the life of a very good man by the way,

Destroyed the life of a very good man.
Who went to prison once,
and then they just put him in prison again
because they said he, he lied.

He didn’t lie, I looked at the statements he made.
In fact he didn’t remember something
and they put him in jail,
again they’ve destroyed him.

With me for many years, he was an honorable person,
he was an honest man.
And if you look at what he did supposedly,
never happened, there’s never been anything like this.

Over the education of his grandchildren,
over he didn’t report that he had a car,
or two cars on his income.
I don’t know.

I wonder how many people here have cars,
I wonder how many people said,
oh gee I have a car that’s worth x dollars?
How do you even figure it?

And I guess you do have to report it,
but I would say probably almost nobody does,
nobody even thinks about it.
They put this man,
they destroyed this man.

But they put him in jail again,
because they didn’t want him to testify.
They didn’t want him to testify.
That’s why he went to jail.
Put him in jail twice.

He’s 77 years old.
Now normally I’d say that’s an old guy.
But I don’t feel 77.
Nobody ever says that about me.

I’d like them to say: “gee we have to have a little sorrow for this man”
Because they don’t they just don’t say that about me
but maybe I’m better off that way.
I think I’m probably better off that way.

But they put him in jail, twice.
And you have to see what they put him in jail.
And he was threatened by the judge.

This man was told you’re going to get 15 years in jail
if you you don’t give up Trump.
And he was told that.
You’re going to get 15 years in jail.

And he made a plea deal because he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life.
And he was told that viciously.
We’re living in a… in a fascist State.
He was told that viciously.

So you can go to jail for four months, five months.
Or you can get 15 years in jail, so do a plea.
Almost who wouldn’t do that plea?
Everyone does those pleas.

It’s a horrible thing.
There’s a whole group of lawyers that fight that.
It’s so unfair.
It’s so unfair.

But they destroyed his life.
So many other things, uh
You look at Southern District didn’t want to bring the case.
Nobody wanted to bring the case.

And then you know who didn’t want to bring the case?
Most of all… is Brag.
Brag didn’t want to bring it.
But then he brought it.

And they tried to make it a different case.
They didn’t say legal expense equal legal expense.
Again if I wrote down and paid a lawyer.
And by the way this was a highly qualified lawyer.

Now I’m not allowed to use his name because of the gag order.
Nut you know he’s a sleeeze bag.
Everybody knows that took me a while to find out.
But he was effective. He did work.

But he wasn’t a fixer.
He was a lawyer.
You know they like to use the word fixer.
He wasn’t a fixer.
He was a lawyer.

At the time he was a a fully accredited lawyer.
Now he got into trouble.
Not because of me.
He got into trouble because he made outside deals.

And he had something to do with taxi cabs.
And medallions.
And he borrowed money.
And that’s why he went.

And then he pled, to three, uh three election violations.
And as soon as I saw that I said I wonder why he did that.
He plead.
He took a deal.

Now he took a deal because he wanted to get off.
In other words I’ll take a plea deal and I want to get off.

And he wanted to make a deal with the southern district.
And they wrote the worst report I think I’ve ever seen on any human being other than the report.

That was written on James Comey by the Inspector General.
A very great Inspector General actually.
Wrote a report that was so bad.
This one was possibly worse.
The southern district.

The judge didn’t let us use it.
He said it’s heresay.
I said it’s not heresay.
Wouldn’t let us use it.

(A bit too poetic in many ways. NLP gone wrong?)

Alex Jones uses “Alex Jones” 17 times. Constantly referring to himself i the 3rd person just like Donald Trump.

He also says “Texas” 16 times when talking about his SH case in Connecticut.

[Alex Jones]
My voice will completely go… but it’s fine.
It’s my resistance to them.
It’s a God’s transmission as a human under attack!

[Alex Jones Yells]
“Argghhhhhhhh!”

As a side note, here is a US senate candidate’s statement from the 2024 Official Vote Information Guide. Seems like it was written by AI based on similar large language models as Donald Trump and Alex Jones.
