Put aside, for a moment, the election and whatever you know of the histories of these two individuals and just watch.

Before you follow the advice to “be yourself” when speaking in public, which I’m sure both of these persons were doing, stop and think about how you appear to others. Do you appear credible? Knowledgeable? Rational? Calm? Focused?

Or do you appear like a scared and ignorant fool cobbling together provocative phrases?

Both of these persons’ appearances arose from something you can’t buy in a store. You’ve got to grow it from a seed.
