5 post-Trump rule changes

Ronald Klain at Politico writes about how five golden rules of politics have changed post-Trump. They are:

  1. Old Rule: Never explain
    New Rule: Always arm allies with an explanation
  2. Old Rule: Apologize and move on
    New Rule: Never apologize and double down
  3. Old Rule: Get your facts straight before you comment
    New Rule: Go with your gut, quickly
  4. Old Rule: Don’t feud with people who buy ink by the barrel
    New Rule: You can score points by going to war with the media
  5. Old Rule: Drive a consistent message, consistently
    New Rule: Adapt constantly, disorient your opponents and the media

Not sure the new rules will work for everyone, but they certainly did for Trump.
