Does Donald have feelings?

Back in July 2015, when everyone was still laughing at his newly announced presidential campaign, Donald Trump revealed that he is a sensitive soul.

"I am thin-skinned," he told "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, who'd hurt Trump's feelings by not mentioning his name during an earlier conversation about the Republican presidential candidates.

Abortion. The Iraq War. President Barack Obama's terrorist sympathies. Now we can add "the thickness of his own skin" to the epic list of issues on which Trump has changed or muddied his position.

After Hillary Clinton said last week that voters should worry about Trump starting an actual nuclear war over some foreign leader's insult -- because he has "very thin skin" -- Trump denied his dermis is deficient.

"I don't have thin skin -- I have very strong, very thick skin," Trump told CNN last week.

Whatever.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
