"Going Bulworth": Trump Carries Debate Night With Authentic Political Outrage
From the Conservative Treehouse:
Initially I had to wait to debrief on the debate, because unlike all other debates this time I needed to watch it twice, in some segments three times; and look at the expression, the emotion behind the words.
Some of the things Donald Trump mentioned last night flew under the radar. Like when Trump expressed his “disappointment in congress” to uphold some semblance of constitutional oversight against a weaponized executive branch. I found myself thinking: wow, did he really say that…
Then it all began to make sense. This is the unchained Trump. This is the guy, now a candidate for president, expressing why he’s in the race; a position he never actually wanted to get into…. he’s often said he’d be quite happy if someone else were doing it, for the right reasons. But they don’t… and so he is.
And his family knew it too:
This is the guy, who is genuinely PO’d at congress for letting the executive branch weaponize itself (it’s own cabinet member organizations) against its own citizenry.
This is the guy who said: “I just had to do it”…”I just had to”, letting all those reasons out for the voters to see.
Stunning, and genuinely authentic. Trump means this stuff, if you watch him say it, you can tell. Unlike most politicians, you can actually feel his emotion.
I recognized as I watched Trump explain his disappointment in congress, and later his absolute intention to appoint a special prosecutor to look into all of Hillary Clinton’s various “issues“, that the action of the professional political class in the past 48 hours has liberated Trump from having to worry about ‘their position’ on such matters.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
