Dana @Milbank writes that "Trump’s not a liar. He’s a madman."… 1/5
Similarly, @ddale8 has noted that while Trump is a serial liar, sometimes he's just confused or ignorant. 2/5
That said, @maggieNYT's penchant for euphemisms is a disservice to readers. 3/5
Trump is not normal, and not due the normal benefit-of-the-doubt contortions the press corps normally makes to jam a bizarre speech into the normal-political-speech-template (see @ddale: ) 4/5
So journalists please start writing things like: "Trump was evidently [present participle/adverb] because [explain]. Where [present participle/adverb] is: lying, confused, ignorant, delusional, racist, unintelligible, etc. 5/5
