Trump throws a tantrum, acts like a mob boss from "The Town" in meeting with Dem's; "Give me what I want and I'll go away"
From the confrontation today. “Schumer: Why won’t you open the government and stop hurting people?” :Trump: Because then you won’t give me what I want.”
I’m reminded of the movie “The Town” (going out and hurting some people), and “Storm of the Century” (“Give me what I want and I’ll go away”.)
Is Trump the mob boss on this one?
It seems that Trump is in control right now, and the Democrats haven’t said why they have such an absolute objection to any more Wall, except for partisanship.
Note how Trump ends this video. You have to hurt people to get things done, just like in the mob world.
This leads to grave moral traps for individuals, who may not get caught in this one, but maybe the next one. How you deal with coercion is a moral issue.
Here’s a Coast Guard tip sheet, taken down, that is as shameful as the OPM’s. Make everyone become a doomsday prepper or a prole.
