Trump is motivated, intentionally or subconsciously, by ideological disagreement: In the three presidential election cycles during which I have been an opinion writer, I have never used language anywhere near that strong about previous Republican nominees said by Ruth Marcus.
Because Trump is different — in degree more than in kind, but in his case the difference of degree is a yawning chasm. All politicians deflect unwanted questions and demands for information (stonewaller). All evolve, if not outright flip-flop (shape-shifter). All, at times, say things that turn out to be untrue (liar). What puts Trump in a different league is his outright unwillingness to abide by the customary norms of disclosure (releasing tax returns); his reversals on issues within the course of a single interview, no less a single campaign; and his determined refusal ever to acknowledge error even when confronted with irrefutable facts to the contrary.
I Word Understanding
Subconsciously – as something that comes from the part of your mind that you cannot perceive or control.
Presidential election cycles – stock markets are weakest in the year following the election of a new U.S. president. According to this theory, after the first year, the market improves until the cycle begins again with the next presidential election.
Yawning chasm – being or standing wide open
Outright flip-flop – completely sudden or unexpected reversal
Releasing tax returns – a form on which a taxpayer makes an annual statement of income and personal circumstances, used by the tax authorities to assess liability for tax
Irrefutable – undeniable
