Portland: What if Trump/Barr/Wolf own it and double down?

Last edited Fri Jul 17, 2020, 02:33 PM - Edit history (1)

This operation totally fits Trump's "law and order" narrative. Big red meat to the base. We (Democrats/liberals) starting raising heck about the shadowy force and now this opens a national platform for them (Republicans/conservatives) to dominate messaging.

Trump or Barr could always say "Liberal anarchists were overtaking Portland. We had to do something. Our show of prescence will remain in Portland and I'll do the same in any city that I see that has the same problem." Totally own it and don't apologize for their tactics, twisting themselves in pretzels with legal justification.

2. They are hoping to provoke a reaction: riots & fires & vandalism & looting etc. Then they'll


Then they'll say they are saving the suburbs and will keep upping the ante in force.

All unnecessary except for tRump's ego re-election and Putin's long game.

3. not sure if it's "if" but "when" once this gets more pub

and why wouldn't they double down? It will endear them to the trumpanzees even more, and won't move the needle much. Nothing ever really does.

6. Trump will cave - he always, always, always does.

 

He will talk tough on Monday, do something stupid on Tuesday morning, get called on it Tuesday afternoon and back off Tuesday night.

Then talk tough on Wednesday...
