THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4377: Donald Trump, "These aren't people, these are animals" • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #TheseArentPeople #TheseAreAnimals #Beto
1/ On Friday 5 April 2019, while at two different campaign events in Iowa, Beto O’Rourke told the crowds that Donald Trump’s rhetoric echoes Nazi Germany, saying, "Putting kids in cages?", ...
2/ ...and "Calling human beings an infestation is something that we might’ve expected to hear in Nazi Germany", along with, "the rhetoric of a president who not only describes immigrants as rapists and criminals, but as animals and an infestation," as well as, ...
3/ ... "Saying that neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists 'are very fine people'? You draw your own conclusions, but this is not something that I expected to hear a president of the United States of America ever say."
4/ One of Trump's statements to which O'Rourke was referring was from an event on 16 May 2018 (please see the above video). During a White House roundtable discussion on immigration policy, President Trump said, ...
5/ ... "We have people who are coming into the country - or trying to come in - we're stopping a lot of 'em. But we're taking people out of the country - you wouldn't believe how bad these people are. These aren't people - these are animals."
6/ What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of the President's statement from that day.
7/ A split second after he says, "people" ("These aren't people"), President Trump displays a classic expression of Disgust.
8/ Just as he finishes saying the end of the word "animals", Donald Trump displays what is known as a Lip Curl.

A lip curl is a signal of:

• Braggadocio
• Bravado
• Hubris
• Bluster
9/ SUMMARY: President Trump's nonverbal behavior exhibited during this video, shows us a strong emotional display of disgust.

continued ...
10/ Disgust was the most common facial expression seen on the faces of Nazi soldiers who staffed Auschwitz-Birkenau, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, and the many other concentration camps during World War II. Contempt was also very common.

continued ...
11/ In order to perpetrate, encourage, or tolerate mass violence, hate crimes, and racism - the human mind must dramatically rationalize - by regarding the victims as "others" - believing them to be of a lower existence, subhuman.

continued ...
12/ Moreover, Trump's nonverbal, verbal and paralanguage displays - all indicate strong egocentric motives and pleasure with regard to the ramifications of his immigration policy.
