I am myself not a native English speaker. I have found it fruitful to use the following technique while learning several different languages (German, Czech, English, French). All such languages share some key characteristics in their sentence structures.
The idea is to identify each main part of a sentence.
Often there are not that many main parts. If you become good at this, you will quickly get an overview of any sentence.
First, let's identify each part and group them:
[The Mueller Witch Hunt] [is] [a total disgrace]. [They] [are looking at] [supposedly stolen Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails] (even though [they] [don’t want to look at] [the DNC Server]), but [have] [no interest in the Emails] that [Hillary] [DELETED & acid washed] [AFTER getting a Congressional Subpoena]!
It might be clearer if we add some more space in between each and separate the sentences:
1 [The Mueller Witch Hunt] __ [is] __ [a total disgrace].
2 [They] __ [are looking at] __ [supposedly stolen Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails],
3 but __ [have] __ [no interest in the Emails]
4 [that] __ [Hillary] __ [DELETED & acid washed] __ [AFTER getting a Congressional Subpoena]!
Bonus (even though __ [they] __ [don’t want to look at] __ [the DNC Server])
I took the parenthesis out, as it is "a non-critical sentence within a sentence", which can be omitted. So, we can look at it individually, while the rest of the text still makes sense without it.
Now each part is clear. Let's categorize them:
1 [The Mueller Witch Hunt]who __ [is]action __ [a total disgrace]objective.
2 [They]who __ [are looking at]action __ [supposedly stolen Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails]objective,
3 but __ [have]action __ [no interest in the Emails]objective
4 [that]objective __ [Hillary]who __ [DELETED & acid washed]action __ [AFTER getting a Congressional Subpoena]!condition
Bonus (even though __ [they]who __ [don’t want to look at]action __ [the DNC Server]objective)
The pattern is easy to see. In general, a simple sentence will contain a who, which performs an action with an objective.
- The who is the word in it's nominative case (the thing or person who the action is tied to). Sometimes one who covers several "sentences" (as in sentence 3, which is still using the who from sentence 2:
- The action is the verb (or verb group). There can be multiple actions (as in sentence 4).
The objective can be many things: a comparison (as in sentence 1), an object (as in sentence 2 and 4), an intent (as in sentence 3) etc.
- Note that the objective might be just a placeholder, a so-called pronoun (as in sentence 4, where the word
that is a placeholder for
the e-mails from the previous sentence). If you can't find the objective, look for such pronouns.
- Note that the objective can be colorfully described with adjectives or other descriptive word ("total disgrace", "supposedly stolen..."). Don't worry about that; just group it all into one objective to keep things simple.
And of course, there can also be other more rare parts now and then, such as a condition (in sentence 4), which limits the entire sentence. Etc.
As you see, a sentence usually only contains 2 to 4 main parts. If you can quickly identify these main parts, then you quickly get the overview. With that overview you can then easily look at the action to see the tense (past, present, future), and you can look at the objective to see if it is an object or a comparison or alike.
Hopefully this will quickly make the meaning clear and ease your understanding. See this Ted Talk for further inspiration. Splitting sentences into blocks and parts, rather than focusing on individual words to start with, is of great use for me personally to get the grasp of complex texts.
It should of course be noted that texts like Twitter tweets, Facebook posts etc. that are written in colloquial (spoken) language may vary greatly in quality and consistency and error-percentage.
