Donald Trump exposed! By whom, you may ask? Well, none other than Donald Trump.

In a new video making the rounds on social media today, Trump is shown to have switched stances on almost every major political issue in this campaign.

Posted by YouTube user PlainSight, the video showcases clips of Trump on the election trail this year contrasted with clips from months and years past. PlainSight only has two videos posted to his or her YouTube account — the “Trump Exposes Trump” video that’s been trending today and a music-free version.

The video begins with Trump emphatically stating he was the “only one” on the Republican primary stage that said “we shouldn’t go into Iraq.” Of course, this statement is then immediately contradicted by clip of Howard Stern asking Trump whether he is for invading Iraq, and Trump agreeing that he is.

And they keep coming: On abortion (“I’m very pro-life” followed shortly thereafter by “I’m really pro-choice”), healthcare (“Everybody’s gotta be covered” versus an I’ve-never-said-that moment on the debate stage), and immigration (“They’re here illegally, you take them, they have to go back” versus “We have to show some compassion, we just can’t throw everybody out”).

There are even clips of Trump commending Hillary Clinton for being very talented — prior, of course, to his 2016 campaign against her where he claimed she has “no natural talents to be president.”

The video even captures Trump’s changing viewpoints on whether or not cursing is appropriate on national television (ridiculous on its face, for him) and his own party affiliation.

The exposure of Trump as a political fraud comes weeks after a major turning point in his campaign. After insulting the family of a slain military hero, Trump has been plagued by multiple public statements from prominent Republicans declaring their refusal to support him.

New details about the direct role that Donald Trump played in developing a strategy to overturn the 2020 election were revealed in a federal court filing from election coup attorney John Eastman late Thursday.

Eastman is several months into a battle to keep records of his work for Trump in the run-up to January 6 confidential. but in his latest parry to bar access to emails he says should be protected under attorney-client privilege, he has revealed that Trump sent him at least “two hand-written notes” containing information “he thought might be useful for the anticipated litigation” challenging election results.

Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene are defending their vote to restrict low-income families' ability to buy formula during the ongoing shortage.

Two Republican lawmakers are upset that Congress overwhelmingly voted to ease restrictions for poor families to purchase infant formula during the current shortage, saying that allowing low-income families to obtain life-sustaining nutrition for their infants comes at the expense of more well-off families.
