It always amuses me when anyone pretends Donald Trump’s flip-flopping only takes place over a long timeline. As though he forever ago changed his mind on a lot of issues and has been consistent ever since.
The truth is he is a serial flip-flopper who constantly adjusts his position to fit whatever particular conversation he’s having at the moment. If he gets flustered enough, he might actually say what he really thinks which is what happened on Saturday’s debate.
