Collins says she has figured out the mystery of Trump's conflicting statements and rapid policy reversals. He has a very short-term memory. He forgets what he said yesterday."When you listen to Trump’s Inaugural Address, or his first State of the Union, keep reminding yourself that he’s reserving the right to forget everything he’s said as soon as he says it. No way we can believe him long term. Unless he tattoos it on his arm." For example: "this week, Trump cheerfully explained that he had no memory whatsoever of having promised to protect the Carrier workers. Until he heard it on TV!""Some of you may hear Trump constantly contradicting today what he said yesterday and decide he’s an idiot," Collins writes, but"I am going to think of him as a little bit like my dog, Frieda, who is extremely intelligent, but her memory is only good for about 90 seconds."
