I was watching Obama give a speech the other day. It was after I had listened to Devin Nunes read the transcript of Trump's first call to Zelensky, where Trump sounded like an adolescent boy calling up a girl and not knowing what to say. When Obama gives a speech, he is thoughtful and insightful. As he talks, his words appeal to the intellect, inspire introspection. Trump, on the other hand speaks like a thug. In his speeches his words appeal to emotions, much as a comedian appeals to emotions. It is just another indication of the validity of recent brain studies that have shown that amoung strong conservatives, they process incoming information through the emotional part of the brain whereas strong liberals process incoming information in a cerebral part of the brain. Nonetheless, there is one characteristic that is quite profound, the stark difference between Obama and Trump's intelligence. I'm sure Obama has at least a 20 point advantage over Trump's intelligence quotient. Then there is the matter of manners and morals, of which Obama's character is unassailable, while Trump is quite crude and dishonest.
