We are reminded every day that Pres. Donald Trump (R-Donald Trump) is, for all practical purposes, pre-verbal. See the transcript from his recent Time interview for the gory details.
But every once in a while we get a glimpse of the Trump who’s, well, precognitive. Latest exhibit: This interview in today’s Wall Street Journal, in which Trump says he has a “renewed confidence in the Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative Republicans he had just two weeks ago suggested targeting for defeat in next year’s midterm election,” because, of course, they blowtorched Trump’s meshugge healthcare reform.
And whence comes this renewed confidence?
Clearly, it’s time to summon Walt Whitman: “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.”
Of something, anyway.
