“But these are minor details”: Endearing Trumpisms
that add wit, wisdom and style to your conversation

Donald Trump points out a minor detail.
June 10, 2016 — As much as I enjoy the campaign slogans and jabs Donald Trump uses in every stump speech — “Make America Great Again”, “Who’s gonna pay for the wall?”, and instantly iconic nicknames like #LyinTed and #CrookedHillary and #Goofy #Pocahontas that stick like Krazy Glue® to his opponents — what I love most are the Trumpisms.

Trumpisms are the little throw-away phrases, asides and flourishes that pepper his speech. When you hear them, you know it can only be Mr. Trump talking.

One of my favorites is “But these are minor details,” that hilarious, deadpan coda he casually tags onto some of his more scathing observations.

I’d like to collect as many of these as I can, slyly incorporate them into my everyday conversations, and help you do the same.

Please help me document these witty “isms” by sending your favorite ones to me at, with the word “Trumpism” in the subject line.
  • “Big league.
  • “But these are minor details.”
  • But we wont say that.
  • “So there’s that.”
  • So sad.
  • “Its a rigged system.
  • Take the lumps out.
  • Theyre political hacks.
  • “It’s one of those things.”
  • Theyre babies. Like a bunch of dumb babies.
  • Boom-boom! Bing-bing-bing!
  • Im just the messenger.
  • Hes a choke artist. He choked. Like a dog, he choked.
