So, you remember when Trump and about every single GOP pundit swore up, down, and sideways that once Trump won the GOP nominating process he would tone it down and “start acting presidential?” Yeah, about that: Trump just said it ain’t happening.
According to a transcript of a Fox News Business interview:
I think that you know my temperament has gotten me here. I’ve always had a good temperament and it’s gotten me here. I certainly don’t think it is appropriate to start changing all of a sudden when you have been winning.
Trump has the best temperament, it is a great temperament and he is winning hyuuuugely because of it. In other words: he has completely lost touch with reality and thinks that his antics are the reason he is “winning” when he is clearly not winning. Not at all, actually, and he is sinking, surely down-down-down in basically all national polls as his behavior continues to imitate that of a ravening conspiracy theorist.
Honestly, the only way anyone could see this consistent fall in the polls as winning is if they are only trying to win the easily lead demographic to stick with their new television network after they lose the election — hey, true or not, it fits the behavior.
But, on to the real facts that matter here: this is yet another campaign promise/stated position on which he has done a full flip-flop. From his relationship with Vladimir Putin or banning assault weapons, to whether the government should set a minimum wage, Trump has the moral backbone and strength of character of a wet spaghetti noodle.
We just can’t trust a word that comes out of his mouth, because chances are that he is going to change his mind. Even when it comes to big things, like him claiming to have seen a video that doesn’t exist of cash offloaded from a plane in Iran. He even admitted never having seen it, after cruising on his lies’ momentum with his followers for a bit. What do people expect from a man that we know lies about 75 percent of the time?
