Donald Trump Is Our First Cubist Presidential Candidate (Because He’s on Every Side of Every Issue)

Seriously, could Donald Trump be any more scattered in his policy positions?

Handy clip ‘n’ save graphic, compliments of Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury.

Now come the latest examples of Trump’s Fractured Fairy Tales.

Exhibit A (via Mediaite), after Trump has resolutely refused to release his tax return.

Trump Revealed on O’Reilly That His ‘Audit’ Excuse for Not Releasing Tax Returns is a Fib

Watch this clip from last night’s O’Reilly Factor. Watch it right now!

Well, okay, before you do that, reacquaint yourself with the fact that Donald Trump is the only presidential candidate since Watergate to ever refuse to release his tax returns. Bring to mind once more that his excuse has long been that he’s under audit and that even the IRS said that isn’t true. Recall that he just continues to insist that this audit is supposedly keeping him from releasing the tax returns and that once it is over, he’ll totally release them.

Except . . . “if [Hillary Clinton] would just release the 33,000 emails that are lost, he would release his tax returns ‘immediately.’”

So all that audit stuff goes away if Clinton sets herself on fire?

Okay then.

Exhibit B (via The Hill), after several weeks of Trump flopping around like a sea bass over his illegal immigration position.

Trump says he’d be OK with illegal immigrants serving in military

During a military-themed forum on NBC News Wednesday night, the GOP presidential nominee was asked whether he believes that an undocumented person who wants to serve in the U.S. armed forces deserves to stay in the country legally.

“I think when you serve in the armed forces, that’s a very special situation and I could see myself working that out, absolutely,” Trump replied.

Wait, what?

Mr. Deportation Force will exempt illegal immigrants in the armed forces?

What the hell is going on here?

That’s exactly the question people in the early 20th Century were asking when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were creating the likes of these:

Fun fact to know and tell, via MoMA: “Picasso and Braque worked so closely together that many people had trouble distinguishing between their paintings. The two artists often left signatures off their canvases, signing the back rather than the front, in order to encourage confusion.”

Encourage confusion?

Now you’re talking Donald Trump’s language.

    The theatre going staff should compare Mr. Trump to a Broadway Play.
    The museum going staff wrote a good one.
