“He is very capable of doing a switcheroo really quick, which can be a good thing or it can not be.”
This was former Senate Majority Leader and Mississippi Senator Trent Lott talking about president-elect Donald Trump.
Switcheroos, as Lott calls them, are becoming a hallmark of Trump’s transition to the presidency. He says one thing one day, then changes it the next. His team says one thing, then he says another.
In its story quoting Lott, Politico.com found itself unable to decide if the “mixed messages and shifting realities of Trump world” are a “byproduct of Trump’s unconventional approach to communications or a more systemic dysfunction.”
