The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman stopped by Katie Couric’s podcast to talk about the Trump administration and ended up bloviating her way through the interview.

Haberman informed viewers that Trump has not changed significantly over the years, and then waxed-poetic about her in-depth knowledge of the administration.

“He is perfectly comfortable taking two conflicting positions,” Haberman said. “Consistency is not a hobgoblin that gets to him particularly.”

“The only thing that is predictable about him is that he is unpredictable. And his reactions can be irrational,” she continued.

The reporter also compared Trump to the weather, which was very intelligent and not cliche at all.

“The storminess of his personality— which clearly is pronounced and frequent— is not incessant,” she explained. “It’s sort of rhythmic. It’s weather. It comes in, and then the storm blows out.”

“It never ends. I feel like I did when I had newborns. It’s like a long day. You know, when you have a newborn and you sleep for two hours and you’re up for three… and so it’s like instead of the baby, it’s your laptop.”
