Storyboard Text

  • Black or White (Trump 10/19 Debate)
  • Our country is in serious trouble, we don't have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don't have them.
  • Trump is saying that, in war, you can either earn a victory or take a loss. He is saying that there are only two possible outcomes; victory or loss. He is trying to keep the audience from thinking that there are other outcomes to wars we have fought in recently.
  • Faulty Analogy (Trump on "This Week" a show on ABC)
  • I saw thousands of people in Jersey City, New Jersey cheering when the World Trade Center was destroyed on September 11, 2001.
  • This is a faulty analogy because trump assumed that since New Jersey has a large Arab population they were happy that the twin towers fell. He also is saying that all Arabs supported the acts of the terrorist since they were also Arab, therefore he is trying to connect two things that do not relate.
  • Argument from Ignorance (Chris Christie, Morning Joe 12/01)
  • Climate change is not a crisis, because I don't see there's any evidence that it's a crisis.
  • Chris Christie makes this claim, but there is evidence that goes against it. He is also claiming that because he does not know of any evidence that proves that it is a crisis, it is not.
  • False Dilema (Hilary Clinton, speech to the Atlantic Council Women's Leadership in Latin America Initiative, 11/30)
  • They talk about deportation and walls, instead of recognizing that America's diversity is our greatest strength and supporting meaningful reform that will keep families together.
  • Clinton is saying that because Trump wants to build the wall, he can not recognize the diversity in America. She is saying that if he wants to build the wall there is only one outcome on his recognition of the diversity in the country and he will tear families apart.
  • Red Herring (Bernie Sanders, Democratic Debate, 10/13/15)
  • Much of what I said about the destabilization did happen.
  • When Sanders is asked about what circumstances would lead to him using force, he does not answer the question. Instead, he talks about predictions he made about destabilization with past presidents.
