You want somebody to seem smarter? Give them a British accent. You want somebody to be sexier? An English intonation is the way to go. You want to feel more sophisticated, measured, and reasonable? Go British or go home.
But it also sounds like you can’t fool the British. An online petition created this week that would ban Trump from entering the U.K. amassed more than 560,000 signatures, and when asked about Trump’s Muslim rhetoric, U.K. prime minister David Cameron, speaking in a British accent, said, “If he came to visit our country, I think he would unite us all against him.”
It appears as though Trump hasn’t responded to Cameron or the petition—perhaps he’s too busy trying to figure out how to handle Michael Moore and his signs—but he might be plotting his next job in case reality and gravity combine to crash his poll numbers.
Perhaps, with a new accent in his pocket that makes him sound both dashing and intelligent, he could invade England, fire Cameron, and then take his job.
