Boston accent I reckon.
They put "er" on the end of words that end in "a".
I've heard them pronounce "vagina" as "Vaginer"

In the same sentence Trump starts with the Brusher word, then says the Russia word.

There must be at least two voices in his head that listen for him speaking in their own individual accent. Listen. You will hear it.

The only other time I've heard something like that was a guy talking to his wife on the phone back in Poland. He used the German word Danzig and then the Polish word Gdansk in the same sentence. But that's like anyone speaking TexMex, flipping back and forth between English and Spanish.

Trump pronounces it "Rusher" sometimes with his shiatty diction, he actually switches back and forth mid-sentence, pretty sure subby is clowning on that.  In that Lester Holt interview he sounded like he said "this rusher thing with trump and russia is fake news", you can hear it about 20 seconds here:  http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/12/politics/trump-comey-russia-thing/inde​x.​html

It'd be great if we could have good relations with Russia.  It'd be great to have good relations with everyone.  It'd be even better if Putin wasn't a mafioso and we weren't the world's sorta-occasionally-benevolent dictator.  If my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle.

Ah, that makes sense, thanks for clearing that up. I usually only read transcripts of what Trump says, actually listening to him for more than a minute or so causes me to bleed from the ears.

Funny thing, I watched part of Don Donnie's skit speech and at the 1 minute mark, I had to go to the toilet. #2. Actually, it was like a watery fart with chunks. I minute of watching and listening to The Maniacal Mango gave me diarrhea.

I didn't realize until now how much I do not want to hear someone say vagina in a Boston accent.

Thanks for taking that bullet.

Right, my point was that's the only way to make "brusher" sound like "Russia", by dropping the final R.

This thread's headline is highly rhotic.

(For those unfamiliar with linguistic terms, rhoticism is the trait of using the /r/ phoneme. Some British accents add it reflexively at the end of words with terminal vowel sounds, thus Chiner, Australia-er.)

Trump's accent has a slight aspect of rhoticism that likely hails from the artificial Mid-Atlantic accent that was widely popular in media in his youth.  The thing is, 100 years ago no one had acquired the Mid-Atlantic accent naturally, it was a constructed system designed for social prestige instead of organically deriving from actual speech.  If you associate it with status-seeking, insecure douchebags, well, that is who it was marketed to.  Trump probably adopted his style of speech to 'overcome' his Queens accent he grew up with.  I have plenty of respect for the organic Queens accent throughout history. But Trump's ... well, it fits his personality, it is easily associated with assholes.

(Most New Yorkers of varying ages don't talk like that.)
