He always makes the biggest noise before he folds."Go in and clean it out."— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) July 29, 2020
I've come to the conclusion that this arouses him on some sick level, beyond what he imagines its political utility may be. #TruthandReconciliationCommission https://t.co/4n2h06MEO3
Talk is cheap. Talk is free. Action is expensive. Action costs. Trump wants someone else to pay for the action. After all, at that same appearance he said this:
‘Go back to school’: Trump lashes out at GOPers who oppose $1.8 billion for FBI building near his hotel https://t.co/wMjKcuJbwd— Raw Story (@RawStory) July 29, 2020
Does anyone think he's going to "school" the GOP Senate?
Besides, "go in and clean it out"? What is he going to do, arrest the city of Portland? Arrest every person on the street after dark? Shoot 'em all and let God sort 'em out? One idea is as absurd as the other. Even if he did order federal officers to "Go in and clean it out," what would they do?
Wilson is right, this arouses Trump; but he's always been in love with the sound of his own voice. But actions? Trump hates actions, especially when nobody praises him for it.
