The mind of Donald Trump is unknowable. It’s a byzantine labyrinth of dead ends and poisonous serpent trenches that continuously loops back onto itself in a hellacious, never-ending nightmare. Did he actually mean it, for example, when he suggested yesterday that 2nd Amendment supporters could do something to prevent a Hillary Clinton presidency? No one knows. He doesn’t even know.
It’s not news to suggest Trump has taken multiple positions on any given subject, sometimes all within the same sentence, but sometimes you have to see and hear it yourself in order for it to sink in. This video then, six minutes of Trump directly contradicting himself, is somehow both surprising, and completely predictable.
