During the 2017 Presidential election being, God knows why but I am, curious about speech and idioms, I noted one oddity. That was that in all of his speeches Trump repeatedly used the phrase “and by the way”.

Over the subsequent two years I’ve observed without exception, all American politicians, regardless of their political stripes, have picked this up and can’t speak for more than two minutes without using it.

It may be Trump’s major legacy.
