That Did Not Occur To Me - And Therefore Anyone - Before

Trump is the extreme version of this.

"We have come up with a solution that's really, really I think very good," Trump said at a meeting of the nation's governors at the White House.
"Now, I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject," he added. "Nobody knew health care could be so complicated."

But we all do it a bit sometimes in less extreme versions. Sometimes that person you're arguing with is an idiot, but sometimes they're actually someone who has thought through a particular issue quite a bit and disagrees with you because of that. In other words, sometimes we're wrong. Except me! I'm always right. It comes with the pundit license.
