1 of 11/  THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4700: Donald Trump's Lisp of Fear (and other Tells) — Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #EmotionalIntelligence #BehaviorAnalysis #NonverbalCommunication #DonaldTrump #LipCurl #Lisp #Fear #LispOfFear Image
2 of 11/ As fear crescendos, we may see any number of multiple nonverbal tells. A cluster of behavior Donald Trump displays when he's scared & feels backed in a corner includes:

• Tightening of jaw
• Extending jaw forward (mild jaw jut)
• Flaring Lips outward (aka a Lip Curl)
3 of 11/  Donald Trump also often Lips slightly when he's frightened. Did you hear it?

It's crucial to differentiate Trump's Fear-Lisp from the separate and distinct phenomenon when he lisps on occasions when his oral prosthesis temporarily loosens.

1 of 25/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4697: Jim Jordan's Creepy Smile — and Why Clowns Freak-out so many people

#BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #EmotionalIntelligence #BehaviorAnalysis #NonverbalCommunication #JimJordan Image
2 of 25/ A clown doesn't have to be a 'scary clown' in order to creep us out. They often 'feel' insincere and duplicitous — feelings we should always approach with caution.
3 of 25/ When a clown's 'painted-on' smile doesn't match their real mouth — it's an overt reminder that a person's spoken word often doesn't match their true intent. Thus clowns are often perceived as duplicitous and devious — which is scary (life clearly has enough of that). Image

2 of 32/ Why did Donald Trump give his response-to-his-federal-indictments speech in front of a painting of Kaiser Wilhelm II?

1/ THREAD: The following Thought Experiment/Logic Tree regarding a profound National Security Risk first occurred to me about eighteen months ago.

2/ At that time, I thought it was possible, although unlikely. However, events have unfolded which, from a Risk Analysis perspective, have shifted it to a probable/highly probable future.
3/ To be clear, I’m not an attorney nor do I have any expertise in constitutional law, international law, or military law. I am an expert in behavioral analysis and predicting behavior — and this permutation is an exercise in predicting Donald Trump’s behavior.
