ASSAD’S BODY LANGUAGE AND VOICE ON BBC IN RESPONSE TO NOT HAVING CHEMICAL WEAPONS SHOWS HIS MANY SIGNALS OF DECEPTION

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 3.18.18 PM.pngWhen someone begins a statement with “So” it is not a got sign in the telling the truth department.  His looking down is also a red flag in terms of being honest and forthright.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad  says “we don’t have any chemical weapons” and says this in a monotone with a glottal fry as he dies off at the end of his statement which is usually a major signal of deception,

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 3.23.15 PM.png

He then gets really breathy and his breathing changes as he says “we gave up our arsenal two years ago.”. This is also a signal of deception in most cases. As he says this he looks down and you can see the visible change in his respiration as he uses more upper chest breathing.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 3.26.50 PM.png

He says even if r had them we wouldn’t use them ( said in an unemotional montone) , he then says UH ( another signal of deception in this contexts) as he says he have never used UH our chemical arsenal in our history. His head is cocked to the side as you see here which is also often  signal of deception considering the context. His voice is breathy and waivering and not solid as one’s voice would be if they were being forthright in denying chemical attacks.

When asked by the interviewer what happened, he doesn’t make sense. He says “as I said” but he didn’t say .. Then he blames it on Al Qaeda.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.23.04 PM.png

With head still cocked to the side and monotone low intensity and low volume speech pattern, he covers himself for liable as he says It is our impression that the West – the United States is hand and glove with the terrorists. As he says this there is a mono-expression which means no emotion and no reaction on his face. And then he raises his eyebrows which means he is doubting what he has just said which is a signal of deception

He continues to die off at the end of his sentences and is barely audible which is yet another signal of deception. He continues to cover himself by saying “that is what we believe .” He doesnt accuse, he just gives his opinion so legally he can’t get into hot water.

He says that the US made this up as a pretext and “that is what ‘we” believe.” He says it is propaganda and thereas no investigation. As he says this he is still monototne and dies off at end.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.30.45 PM.png

Now look at his body language,turned inward His  toes  are turned inward whichin dicates insecurity on his part which is also reflected in his tone and voice pattern and his fingers are interlocked as he gestures.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.34.40 PM.png

You also see a shoulder shrug which further indicates deceptive movement as he continues to point the finger at Al Qaeda.And he begins his next statement with a long EHHHHH sound which does not do much for his credibility in my view.

“About the attack it is not clear whether it happened or not”, says Asad. He dies off at the end as he says this which is a signal of deception.

He also shows the back of his hand as she gestures which can also bee seen as a signal of deception along with his barely audible voice which speaks volumes to me.

He then says we don’t know if it   happened or not as you  can’t tell since there are so many “fake videos” out there  on the internet now. He says they are Al Qaeda who shave their beard wore white hats and appeared as humanitarian  heroes which is not the case. As eh says this he strugs his shoulder.

He also questions of the children were really children of that area or if they were dead at all. The then asks who committed the attack if there was an attack?

The fact that he is asking questions, instead of giving answers concerns me.  When people ask a myriad of questions as opposed to giving facts, it is often suspect and leads one to believe they are not  being forthright.

He says you have no information at all as he shrugs his shoulders. Well since he is being accused, why not get some information and show proof that he didn’t do it as he said. But by asking questions and pointing the finger and speculation it makes one further dowt Assad’s veracity  of what he is saying and credibility.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.47.36 PM.png

At the end he gets defensive and puts his hand between his legs indicating that he is feeling vulnerable in doing this gesture. He gestures with his palms to him and that is also not a good signal as far as being truthful is concerned in my estimation.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.49.38 PM.pngAnd finally what really makes me believe he is not being forthright is that when he is asked if he thinks this is a fabrication, looks down and shakes his head no when he should be shaking it yes as he relies, :”Definately, a 100 percent  and stammers on the words huh hundred percent. His voice and tone is also disturbing to me in that it is too monotone and he is way too inaudible

In order to get a baseline of how Assad sounded earlier in his speeches, his voice appeared strong and audible and his gestures were more formidable and forceful. So that leads me to believe he knows a lot more than he is saying in the interview to the BBC.

Nancy Pelosi Body Language- Hypocrisy, Anger, Deception Busted About Russia

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-21-49-am

This is political  hypocrisy at it’s finest. Right after Nancy Pelosi’s accusations against Republicans over Jeff Sessions’ alleged meetings with the Russian ambassador, she showed some revealing body language which shows there is clearly more than meets the eye as far as Nancy Pelosi is concerned as she did the same the same thing  as Sessions when she was asked a similar question. Since the body doesn’t’ lie, Pelosi’s body language says it all and it looks to me like she was taken aback. Does she herself have something to hide?

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-31-02-am

Politico reporter Jake Sherman directly asked Pelosi “You’ve been in Congress a little bit and you’re in leadership, have you ever met with the Russian ambassador?’

Pelosi was shocked!  this was revealed in her immediate awkward silence which took much longer than a person who had nothing to hide answering the question.  Pelosi  phumfered “Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” before  she quickly tried to change the subject and move on. When you put the word “no” at the end of a sentence, there is often trouble brewing. When you are being open and forthright you say No at the beginning of the sentence and then go on to explain. So immediately it put a huge red flag up for me.

Thne she explains herself. When you give an open honest answer you don’t explain and sound defensive  and have a catch in your tone. Then Sherman asked “Is it normal to meet with ambassadors?” and her reply was “Yeah,” She did not says “yes it certainly is, or yes or yes it is. She blurted out a yeah.

Her body language also  seemed to me to scream many signals of deception.

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-21-49-amFirst she shows the back of her hand which is the first bad signal.It shows she is shocked at the question as she looks away.

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-22-12-amThen she holds up her finger as to admonish and subconsciously  and angrily say, “don’t ask me this question”. She doesn’t even look at Sherman but give him an askance glance which illustrates anger.

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-28-07-am

Then she closes her eyes as if not to deal with the question- to shut it out literally. She also reaches for her throat which is the most vulnerable part of your body. It is a form of self protection and means she is feeling really vulnerable at this question being thrown at her.

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 10.24.56 AM.pngNo here she is super angry as she makes a karate chop gesture as you can see the movement of her hand which is caught in the photo.She also looks away as she can’t even face the interviewer which is another bad sign. In essence her karate chop gestures says “cut it off.”

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 10.25.52 AM.pngShe is still showing the back of her hand and not the palms which is yet another red flag signal to me.  She also does not look at the interviwers which is yet another signal red flag moment.

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 10.27.20 AM.pngNow this is a very serious moment for me red flag wise as she shows how vulnerable she is now that she in essence got busted. She reaches for her vulnerable area- her throat region.

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 10.27.59 AM.pngNow her facial expression really shows how angry and upset she is that she got “caught with her pants down” so to speak. She is no dummy when it comes to the game of politics and she knows the repercussions of this question and her mind is spinning at 100 miles per hours to see how she can now spin her answer to look good to the public. The hand on the throat which remains is now even more telling when matched with her upset facial expression.

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 10.28.07 AM.pngNow she can no longer face her interviewers and shuts down with closed eyes and cups her hand over her vulnerable throat area into a fist indicating she wants to shut out what just happened and she is angry about it as revealed by the fist like posturing of her hand.

So there you have it- one politician call the kettle black when her pot is just as black. This my fans and friends and readers is why I detest politics. It is full of these lies, these games, and this hypocrisy which we have just seen. It is why I support no party over the other and no candidate over the other. It is why I am impartial and neuutral because they both end up doing and saying the same thing at one time or another. So it is a waste of time to keep it all straight as far as I am concerned.

Politics is a game as we  just saw and it is a very serious and dangerous game. It is about besmirching one to others and vice versa. So if you ever dare to accuse me of being partisan or representing one candidate over another I will refer you to this Pelosi blog I just did.

 

Dr. Lillian Glass’ Communication and Handshaking Advice to Trump To Make Friends and Influence People

screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-6-26-44-pmThere is no question that  Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, did it “his way” and won the election.  But now that he is the President, as a 30 year veteran communication expert,  I would like to offer him some very useful advice. I  recommend that he tone down “his way” in terms of how he communicates publically. The bragging, self aggrandizement, constant self reference, lack of humility, using over inflated terms terms like “never in the history as anyone…” as it pertains to his achievements  needs to stop immediately.

 It is starting not to  work with friends and supporters and it is definitely not working with foes. It is merely adding fuel to their fire.

The universal rule of communication is  humility.  No one responds well to a braggart. No one likes to hear someone tell how great they are even if they invested a cure for cancer and solved the national debt. First and foremost, he must STOP constantly talking about himself and bragging on himself and saying how great he is. He needs others to say that about him. He does not need to say it about himself.

While  it may have worked with the late  boxer  Muhammed Ali, it was often tongue and cheek and said with humour.  It even worked for Trump when he was a celebrity and entertainer. But as a President,  it looks awful when Trump says it about himself. As a world leader, it  smacks of arrogance, self absorption,  and insecurity. It is  just plain bad form.

No matter where you live in the world, there is no doubt you were raised hearing the saying “don’t get big headed” or “don’t get too big for your britches,” don’t brag about yourself” or  “Stop showing off .” Most cultures appreciate graciousness and humility, especially when it comes to one’s own achievements. 

Yes,  self confidence is wonderful and it is essential to have a healthy dose of self esteem and confidence  for what you have done, what you are currently doing, and what you plan to do. But Keep it to yourself  or only share it with your intimates and very close circle of friends and family. Let people know your achievements but do it humbly.

No one likes a continuous braggart or someone who exaggerates for effect, or  who is big headed. It alienates  most people and it is off- putting. That is how many physicians who tend to be too full of themselves often end up in trouble with patients and in legal disputes.

Now that he is the President, he needs to keep it less personal and strictly focus on and discuss the issues just as passionately as he talks about himself.  He needs to speak less about himself and more about us and how the issues affect us.

TRUMP”S PRESSER CALLING OUT FAKE NEWS 

 Donald Trump’s recent presser focused on setting the record straight and  admonishing the “fake news” and  many less than professional journalists. In my view his speech was correct and what he said finally  needed to be said. Had I not personally  experienced  what he is talking about – the spin and negativity, I would have never believed what Trump was saying. But he is absolutely correct in this regard. 

MISINTERPRETED TRUMP/ ABE HANDSHAKE AND FACIAL GESTURE 

screen-shot-2017-02-11-at-1-10-14-am

I have been doing countless interviews about the Trump/ Abe handshake all over the world and have been setting the record straight that there was no problem between Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Abe. In fact their body language each showed that they really liked one another.  This was indicated by their body language. Trump did the double handshake which shows genuine affection and Abe leaned into Trump and his toes pointed in Trump’s direction, indicating he really liked Trump. He also showed a genuine smile with his apples of his cheeks raised, eyes squinted, and teeth showing. 

No one overpowered anyone. As they were equally formidable in their approach. In fact Abe directed the photo op as she told Trump “look at me” which Trump immediately did. They maintained. eye to eye contact as they both  had a strong handshake. In fact Trump remarked that Abe had a strong handshake.  

When the photo op was finally over and they both broke their strong handshake, Ave looked up ( as though he was searching for someone) and immediately an aide ( in glasses) came over to him. He did NOT roll his eyes at Trump. Japanese people do not do that when they are exasperated or when they are not happy about someone. So the take that journalists had on this was wrong. Many called me to verify that the relationship between Trump and Abe was bad. i told them that is was not and set the record straight. Most journalists were great and reported my take and saw my point of view.

But there were others who simply would have none of it.I found that distressing. When the election was taking place Quartz, a new publication which is an offshoot of the Atlantic Monthly paid me to write a story on Trump and Pence’s handshake and body language which I gladly did.

Several days ago, I got an urgent email from one of Quartz’s writers Selian Cheng who wanted to know my take on the Trump. Abe handshake.  The article involved no pay as it was just my opinion. I got back to her immediately with the view I described above. Then  never heard back from her. Finally,  she emailed me to let me now she found someone else and wanted to use other body language expert to get their different view.

I then emailed her back and asked why she even bothered to contact me in the first place if that was her aim all along  as it wasted her time and mine. After reading the article in Quartz which she wrote, it appeared to me in my view  that my quote didn’t apparently match her spin of the story which was very anti-Trump and mischaracterized the whole handshake situation,. So she simply got another body language “expert” ( and I use that term loosely)  who’s views may have  matched her agenda in my view. It saddened me as that is not how I learned to do journalism as a journalism student at the best journalism school in the country, USC.  

I felt bad about this so I wanted to share my thoughts with the Editor in Chief of Quartz. Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance because his Editorial Assistant Molly Rubin, with whom I shared why I was calling, in  what I perceived as a nasty tone, said “thank you very much” and hung up on me. So there you have it!  Obviously she didn’t want to hear what I had to say on the matter and with the Toxic behavior she showed me, I doubt anyone got my message or concern.

FUTURE BODY LANGUAGE  ADVICE CONCERNING  HANDSHAKING 

screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-7-01-50-pm

Donald Trump is a man who is very demonstrative and effusive in terms of his affection. He even kissed Pence when Pence was  nominated as Vice President.

 Many are not used to it, so they are taken aback and they are making a huge deal out of his  kissing, handshakes and effusive greetings.

 But I can assure you the way he meets and greets is part of the norm in Hollywood and Trump is very Hollywood when it comes to his greetings. People tend to be more   open, affectionate and effusive in show business than they are in other businesses. So we tend to be used to this.

Personally, I find it refreshing. If you really like someone , you let it be known. That is what Trump did with Abe, Pence, Trudeau and others he likes. With Trudeau, they not only shook hands, they both embraced shoulders which is an even bigger display of mutual affection. It is NOT by any means a power play when it is mutual. It showed they were on equal footing in terms of their affection towards one another. 

screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-7-02-14-pm

Trump doesn’t hide his positive emotions and I say he should continue to do what he is going in terms of being genuine  in his meet and greets, which have received world- wide attention.

Screen Shot 2017-02-18 at 7.10.13 PM.png

Apparently many world leaders who are planning to meet President Trump in the future are concerned with how to approach the newly elected President when they meet him. “How can the leader best shake his hand”  was the question a Chinese journalist  from China’s major newspaper asked me in regard to Chinese President Xi’s upcoming visit to the United States.

 I let her know that the best way to approach Trump in terms of his hand-shaking is to mirror him. If he does the double handshake with his hand on top of Xi’s, then Xi, also needs to do the same . This will indicate mutual warmth and affection and will not be read as Trump taking charge or overpowering. I also suggested that Xi match Trump’s strength and firmness in terms of his handshake.

 I also suggested that Xi not bold back and be genuine in his feelings, because Trump certainly will hold nothing back.  I assured the Chinese journalist  during our interview that the body doesn’t lie no matter how hard you may try to control it. The truth always leaks out. 

 

 

 

Trump Handshake Did Not Overpower Abe But Showed Positive Affection as They Both Like One Another

screen-shot-2017-02-11-at-1-10-14-amI got so many calls and emails  today from TOXIC journalists who were determined to spin an innocent story about President Trump’s meeting with Japan’s Prime Minister into a negative international incident when it was not. I refused to play their game and stuck to my guns about how it was not an issue. In fact one journalist from a  publication who always interviews me didn’t like my honest answer. So they found another body language expert to spin it her negative way. I was disgusted at her and I told her so in no uncertain terms.

As a bona fide trained journalist myself,  I HATE this and I have no respect for this journalist or the publication who hired her or the other journalists who called me with their own agendas in mind.

The controversy is over the following expression of Abe. The  so called “journalists” claimed he rolled his eyes after the handshake indicating he didn’t like Trump. This is NONSENSE.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.10.34 AM.pngFirst of all in Japanese body language the eye roll is not used to show disgust or displeasure. Secondly EVERYTHING has to be measured and analyzed in terms of CONTEXT! All Abe was doing was looking at someone.

Abe had a long handshake with Trump and was even directing the photo  op as he told Trump to look at him.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.10.42 AM.pngHe was ready to get out of his chair as you see here. Trump’s thumbs up shows they had a great interaction. And one thing about Trump that is for certain, he knows how to read people and he read their interaction accurately.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.10.53 AM.png

Now here is the person  to whom Abe was reacting. There was no eye roll as the journalists said. They also tried to spin it that Abe was overpowered by Trump.

This is NOT so . Look at Abe’s very  masculine sitting position with legs apart.  Look at how much room he is taking up. This is not how a person who feels overpowered looks. So the journalists were wrong again.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.10.14 AM.pngHere is when the two leaders are having eye to eye contact and smiling which is a great sign. Abe shows his teeth and the apples of his cheeks are raised which indicates it is a genuine smile. The screenshot is taken just after Abe tells Trump to look at him for the photo op. So Abe is just as media savvy as Trump on the world stage.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.10.06 AM.pngIn fact,  here is  when Abe tells Trump to look at him. Trump is happy and it is a genuine smile with teeth showing and balls of cheeks raised and eyes crinkled.

We rarely see Trump like this so when we do, it is clearly genuine. Trump also does not have an overpowering grip on Abe as Abe is gripping right back. They BOTH have strong handshakes as you can see.

In fact after the photo opp Trump looked at Abe and said “strong handshake”. So there was a language of mutual strength being spoken to one another thru their handshake and touch.

Screen Shot 2017-02-11 at 1.09.43 AM.png

Their body language mirrors one another which is a great sign in terms of their relationship. Note how both of their hands drop down. Also both of their toes are pointed towards one another which is further indication that they like one another.

Trump also put his hand over Abe’s which is an affectionate gesture. Abe likes this a as he returns a genuine smile with teeth showing.

So to all you TOXIC journalists who wanted to spin this  story your negative and ignorant  way, I say SHAME ON YOU!!! and I also say I WILL NOT PAY YOUR TOXIC GAME”. I want NO part of it !

I am not going to say negative things about Trump when I see nothing negative body language wise and communication wise. And I say SHAME to any body language person who does play your game just to get their name in print. Nothing is worth compromising your integrity for some PR.

 

 

Stop the Rumors! Trump Did NOT Make Milania Sad During Swearing In Context is Key in Reading Body Language

Context is key  with regard to any body language analysis. So many people have been asking me to comment on why Melania looked so sad after Donald turned around at the inauguration ceremony when Rev. Graham spoke.

After scrutinizing the clip frame by frame  and looking at Melania’s behavior facial expression and body language BEFORE Donald turned around, DURING the time he turned around and AFTER the time he turned around,    I can assure you that he did not say anything to upset her.

The reason I am so sure of it is that if she was upset with what he said  it would have happened immediately at the split moment it happened not any time later and certainly not a second or two later.

Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 4.31.11 AM.png

Melania wore the same upset looking facial expression people are speaking about well before Donald turned around as you can see her with somber expression and head bowed down. In fact in the crowd, she is one of few people with a bowed head. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.14.41 AM.png

Melania looks sad BEFORE Rev. Graham spoke.Even Ivanka looks somber as he starts his benediction.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.18.41 AM.png

Her head is bowed BEFORE Donald turned around and as Rev. Gram said” in the bible it is a sign that when it rains…”

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.21.32 AM.png

As soon as Rev. Graham said ” And it started t0 rain Mr. President when you came to the platform,” Trump immediately turned around and smiled at Melania as Ivanka is wearing an expression of being choked up. In essence,  BOTH Donald and Melania are having a positive and personal moment together .   

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.23.55 AM.png

They both book at one another eye to eye as Melania nods and Ivanka is now happy as well, cocking her head so that she can get a better view of her dad. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.27.33 AM.png

Trump uttered something and he immediately  turned around. Since his back was to the camera we can never know what he said. Therefore I cannot utilize my lip reading skills to decipher exactly what he said and I cannot speculate as I ONLY report what I actually see and what I actually hear. As he has turned around, Melaina is still smiling as you can see her cheeks raised and eyes still squinted and teeth showing in a genuine smile.

Then as Trump is fully turned around, her expression immediately changes. In my view, she may have just  processed the powerful statement Rev. Graham made about the rain which occurred just as Trump spoke being an auspicious sign. Perhaps the reality was beginning to set in that her husband is REALLY going to be President, that she will be First lady and that life as she once knew it will never be the same.

The reason I DO NOT believe he said something awful to her that made her upset as so many lay people, non professionals and Trump haters have wrongly remarked is because her reaction time was not immediate. When someone says something horrible to you, as they speak those words your facial expression changes. It does NOT change a second or two later. In essence, Melania reverted back to her previous somber expression that she had on her face well before Trump turned around.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.38.23 AM.png

What even further confirms what I am saying is the fact that she turns away to look into the crowd as she processes the reality of the moment and how countless  people are standing before her,  witnessing her husband becoming the next President of the United States.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.40.42 AM.png

Then she turns her head toward the front as she looks out into the crowd, continuing  with the serious expression on her face. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.42.25 AM.png

She then immediately  looks down after viewing and processing the crowd and the seriousness of the situation.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.43.58 AM.png

Now she looks at the crowd once again as further evidence she is   processing the enormity of the situation and what is going on.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.45.54 AM.png

Then she looks down, once again ,engaging in the processing of the situation.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.46.56 AM.png

Next, she turns her head and looks down. It has now been a FULL 6 SECONDS since Trump allegedly said something to her . It does NOT take 6 seconds to process being upset. It would have happened at the moment he spoke and immediately afterwards, which it did not. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.49.20 AM.png

She looks down and glances up at the crowd again.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.50.30 AM.png

Then she looks straight on as her head is slightly bowed. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.50.39 AM.png

And now she turns with her head held high as she stands in line with her husband, looking right at the back of him. So now, she has processed the moment and is now aligned with her husband as she stands behind him having processed and accepted that she is the new First Lady and he is the new President.

Context is key when reading people’s body language. A little information and a little knowledge can be dangerous and create rumors which was the case here. Melania had a somber expression before Donald turned around and spoke to her. She was thrilled during and immediately after he spoke to her.  Only seconds later, as she processed the reality of what Rev. Graham was saying as she scanned the crowds, all the while being engaged in her own thought process did her expression look somber.

So what may have looked like her being upset at what Donald might have said to her is NOT the case at all. 

As you know I am not political and I ONLY fairly report what I  ACTUALLY SEE and what I HEAR,  just as I have done throughout the campaign and now that Trump is President.  I have NO BIAS and I am keeping it OBJECTIVE at all times so don’t try to think for me and tell me what is in my mind or  tell me I am biased as I am the ONLY one that can tell you DIRECTLY what I am thinking and what my bias is or is not. I have  absolutely  nothing to hide, no one to impress and I am not beholden to anyone. So if you want to spew hate towards Trump, do it elsewhere not with me.

I report and continue to report ALL that I see whether or not it is flattering to Trump or not. In fact, I recently remarked that I didn’t like it when Trump walked in front of Melania as she was left holding the Tiffany package, while Trump sprinted towards the Obamas.  Whether he was caught up in the excitement of the day and in the moment or whether the Secret Service told Melania to stand back and wait, or whether  this was some type of protocol, I didn’t like it at all as it looked very bad to me as a sign of rudeness. In Western culture, we do NOT walk in front of a friend, spouse, or mate, and leave them trailing behind, regardless of their sex. Doing so has very bad connotations. So NEVER accuse me of being biased.

I HATE rumors and false reporting and having been a trained journalist at the number one School of Journalism in the world, USC, I vilify ANY reporter who sticks their bias into the equation like Martha Radditz who was almost in tears during her reporting on ABC of the  inauguration and who in my view should be, using Trump’s term,” FIRED” 

I also HATE it when reporters, amatures, non professionals do body language analysis and do it wrongly. It is DANGEROUS and IRRESPONSIBLE!  Just because someone has a degree in Psychology it does NOT make them a BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT!  It takes years and years of work, research and experience like I have done and Alan Pease and Paul Ekman, David Given, and even ex FBI agent Joe Navarro. I have the utmost respect for all have done. These are  my colleagues I have the utmost respect for them. All of their backgrounds are solid and they know of that they speak, just like I do. Many others in my view,  do not have the expertise, experience ,or background and as a result make dangerous and irresponsible comments. 

I was on the BBC last week with a Psychology Professor from OXFORD who knew NOTHING what he was talking about regarding body language . It was embarrassing to even listen to this man.

I am thrilled that Trump is fighting back and busting the irresponsible press that, many members whom we saw having direct ties to Hillary from Martha Radditz to Rachel Maddow,  Wolf Blitzer, Jake Tapper, other CNN cronies and even Megyn Kelly. I personally can never trust ANY of their reporting now and tune out whenever they speak. I have lost all respect for them as they should know better.

 

Body language reveals insight into relationship Between Melania and Donald

 

Body language expert Patti Wood said there were only a few moments that showed love between the pair. Picture: AFP/Saul Loeb.

President and Mrs. Trump couldn’t be a better match as you can gauge a lot from  their body language. They are a perfect match even though  come from different backgrounds.  She’s very accommodating, and he has a large ego and needs a lot of attention.

Donald Trump could never be with a wife who is competing for the limelight, and so for his personality type and her personality type, they couldn’t be a better match.

Melania understands her husband very well and looks up to him in admiration.  She seems to be willing to put up with a lot.

That includes leaving her trailing behind as he made his way towards former President Obama and Michelle. Maybe he was caught up in the moment and the excitement of the day, but to me it was still rude and cannot be overlooked. Personally, I would find it quite unsettling  if my man did that the me. In Western culture it is considered rude to walk in front of someone and leave then trailing behind.

We have come from eight years of the Obamas where we have see the opposite  of Melania and Donald’s dynamic as Barack constantly showered Michelle with affection and adoration.   In fact Barack kissed Michelle’s hand and comforted her as they were leaving for the helicopter. he sensed she was sad and his kiss was a reflection of how much attention he paid to her feelings.

In all fairness,  you cannot really compare the relationship between the Trumps and the Obamas because the two couples have stemmed from very different circumstances.

 

Barack and Michelle married young. She was his boss, and they fell in love so they have had  a whole life together Trump, on the other hand, has been married two times before, so it’s a whole different kettle of fish.

Melania is the opposite of Donald in that she appears to be more  reserved as she shies away from the limelight. Donald, on the other hand  is more outgoing, outspoken, and craves the limelight. That is why they work well together as a couple and will continue to do so throughout Donald’s Presidency.   They are a perfect case example of how opposites can not only attract but they can work out long term.

 No matter what your political views are you have to admit that they do make a stunning couple. Aside from Jacqueline Kennedy, no one has  looked more beautiful, glamourous , poised and  so well put together as Melania. The dress she wore to the Swearing In Ceremony was Jackie Kennedy inspired ( the collar) but a clever variation thereof. Fashion-wise there is no doubt that she will be an inspiration, just like Kate Middleton.

 

Dr. Lillian Glass Shows How Madonna’s Body Language and Speech Was No Metaphor Literally About “Blowing Up White House”

At the Women’s March in Washington DC Madonna said she “thought of Blowing up the White House.” As a result the Secret Service is allegedly investigating her. Potentially, she could be faced with a serious crime. Being well aware of this, Madonna tried to backtrack the next day, stating that it was just a “metaphor.”. But it is too little too late! In my view after examining Madonna’s body language and speech pattern,  that she  was NOT speaking figuratively. Instead she  was speaking literally. She made a direct statement.

According to the dictionary, a Metaphor is a figure of speech which makes an implicit, implied or hidden comparison between two things that are unrelated but share some common characteristics. In Madonna’s speech there was no comparison. 

Body language wise  and voice wise  and speech wise she spoke in anger. She even literally  said” I am angry.” You can see the anger in her face. Her upper lip is raised and her face widens around her cheek area.

Then she said I am outaged. As she says this you can see her facial muscles getting more tense as she lifts up her upper lip in an angry snarl .

Then she looks directly at the audience and gives them a clear and direct message in a deliberate staccato tone. If someone was using a metaphor it would not be delivered so emphatically as she delivered her statement “Yes, I have thought  an awful lot about Blowing up the White House.”

The fact that she used  the  adjective “an awful lot” shows that it is NOT a metaphor but rather a literal statement of her action . She thought about blowing up the White House and she thought about it a lot. 

As she says this at the end of her statement, her voice  showed a glottal fry where there is a creaky sound . This indicates anger in the voice as the vocal muscles are now experiencing  a lot of tension.  This is due to anger. This further indicates that this statement was literal and not metaphor at all. She was angry and she thought about blowing up the White House. her voice indicates  this is a fact, not a metaphor.

She then looks down and then tells exactly what she did after hr action ( thinking about blowing up the White House.).

She says ‘I know that this won’t change anything. As she says it she cocks her head, indicating that she gave thought to the action. When someone cocks their head it is an indication they were thinking about  something or considering something or questioning something. This further indicates that hat she said was literal and not a metaphor.  She then shakes her head “NO” indicating once again that her action was lietral.

Now she is instigating fear more anger by bringing up someone who wrote something from WW2 saying we must “love or  or die”. She is saying that if you don’t love you  will die.Is she referring to Trump here that if he doesn’t love he will die’?  Is she referring to the audience that if they don’t love they will die?  In ether case it seems to be as though she is instigating fear  and a threat of what will happen ( death) with her “either or remark.”

Then she has the audience repeat her chant “We choose love” which further highlights her “either or” statement –  either death or love”

The bottom line is that it is NOT a metaphor in my view but a very real statement based on what she said and did before, during, and after she made the statement. The  display of direct anger, the glottal fry as she continued her statement in real time actual anger not in metaphor and her follow up statement of stating that  ” I know it wouldn’t  change anything.”  In a metaphor you do not have a follow up action ( knowing it wouldn’t change anything).

In addition, when people speak metaphorically, they often pepper other areas of their speech with metaphors which was not the case here.  This further leads me to believe that her statement was  not a metaphor and in fact a very literal account of what she thought about doing to the White House.

It’s ironic that Madonna is seen wearing  an orange jumper at the rally. She may very well find this orange color jumper a staple of her daily apparel if the Secret Service finds her threat is not a metaphor but a full blown threat.

For those of you who think Madonna was simply exercising her First Amendments Rights, in my view she went far and above those rights, Just as you cannot yell FIRE in a crowded room when there is no fire, you cannot tell millions of people that you considered blowing up the White House as you display your anger to instigate others.

The level of hypocrisy of Madonna astounds me. To me it seems as though she will do and say anything as a desperate attempt for this 60 year old  to  stay in the public eye since her career and music s becoming less and less relevant.

Her vulgarity which has increased more and more. Her showing the world her private parts as she shaved the Nike logo into her pubic hair  is vulgar and shows very poor judgement on her part, especially since she has  teenage and pre teenaged children. It is now understandable why 16 year old son ROcco wants nothing to do with her and has moved far away from here to stay with his dad in the UK.

Before that she made an announcement at one of her concerts that she would give oral sex to anyone who voted for Hillary. This is a statement that goes far beyond getting attention. It made me wonder if the woman is in her early states of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease . Yes, we all know Madonna has always been over the top in her actions and words but this is far far far over the top. Saying something like this is a horrible role model for young women, especially those as young as her adopted daughter Mercy.

Whether you love Donald Trump or you hate DOnald Trump, you cannot threaten any President or the White House as Madonna clearly did in my view. The Secret Service allegedly thinks that her statements are serious enough to warrant an investigation and I agree with them. 

It seems that her Donald Trump anger  and tirades  and being so vocal is keeping her in the public eye and getting everyone talking about her as her music certainly isn’t cutting it any longer.  But this time her cry for attention has backfired on her and she will no doubt have to be held accountable for what she does and what she says for perhaps the first time in her life.

Her hypocrisy  is  astounding to me. Here she has spent a lifetime  showing off her private parts , degrading herself as a woman, and being vulgar and suddenly she is offended by Trump’s remarks which are just as bad as hers. Yes Trump’s “pussy grabbing statement was disgusting and no one can dispute it , even his wife Melania. But this is about Madonna. Throughout the years in my view, she has done more more to harm the image of women  than anyone with her sexist vulgarity and raunchiness. She is certainly no leader, no role model, and no spokesperson for women in my book.

It was disgusting enough that 60 year old Toxic Madonna showed the world her genitals last week with a Nike Logo shaved out of her pubic hair and before the election, offered to give oral sex to anyone who voted for Hillary. But now she has taken things to a whole new level by saying she thought about Blowing Up the White House! She is now being investigated by the Secret Service.This Toxic Hypocrite has spent her whole life showing off her private parts , degrading herself as a woman, and being vulgar and suddenly she is offended by Trump’s remarks as she speaks at the woman’s march with a Holier than Thou attitude. She has done more to harm women and their image than anyone with her sexist vulgarity and raunchiness. She is certainly no leader , no role model, and no spokesperson for women.
