Flip Flops

When an American politician makes a 180 ° flip flop in policy, the media report it as a solid fact that the politician has indeed had a change of heart. This is almost never the case. The politician simply pretended to change policy to bow to public pressure. The first chance they get to sneakily put their old policy into law, they will take it. In particular, the media report Trump making five flip-flops a week as if every one were sincere. Their feigned naïveté is insulting to their viewers.
