Potential VP pick Mike Flynn just TRUMP-FLOPPED on abortion

Yesterday Mike Flynn was asked his views on abortion, and he came down on the side of a woman having the right to choose:

On abortion, he said, “I think it’s a — I think for women — and these are difficult issues, but I think women have to be able to choose what they — you know, sort of the right of choice, but I think that that’s a difficult legal decision that — and I think that women are so important in that decision-making process.” “They are the ones that have to make the decision, because they’re the ones that are going to decide to bring up that child or not,” Flynn said.
Well just as Trump flip-flopped on different positions within 24 hours during the primary, Flynn has just done the same thing, according to Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin:

Of course! What else would you expect from a potential Trump ticket?! Abortion flip-flops (or as I call them, Trump-flops) are just part of WINNING!

That said, I do still like him on national security, which is really his forte.
