There are some core questions that obviously deserve to be part of the national debate this election season: Is Trump correct that massive tax breaks for the wealthy trickle prosperity down on everyone else?

Why would the candidate who says U.S. wages are already “too high” promise voters increased wages? But as important as these lines of inquiry are, this new ad suggests the Trump campaign isn’t altogether familiar with its own platform. As MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin asked, Trump’s commercial “twice cites the House GOP tax plan. Then it cites his old tax plan, which has totally different rates. What is his plan?” Don’t ask Trump and his aides; they don’t appear to know.
