Are Donald Trump's Views Like The Weather In New England? (auto-on audio)

"If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes"
Everyone knows the quote from Mark Twain: "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes." And most people know that Trump has changed his views on various issues over the years — he was for socialized medicine in the U.S. just 15 years ago, once proposed a wealth tax, etc.
But the Washington Post's David Fahrenthold has compiled an amusing list of "20 times Donald Trump has changed his mind since June." That works out to roughly one change of mind every three days since Trump announced his candidacy.
To be fair, some of the ones on Fahrenthold's list aren't exactly changes of mind. It includes, for example, Trump saying at one point that he'd replace ObamaCare with something "much better," and later saying he'd replace it with something "terrific," as though those are two different things.
Trump has, however, said a lot of things over the past two months that are hard to square. Fahrenthold adds up seven different iterations of Trump's views on tax reform, for example, from backing a national sales tax, to supporting a flat tax, to leaving the system more or less alone.
