The guy clearly gets himself into a state and maybe he's prone to that in which case I do feel for him being upset. On the other hand, a normal person wouldn't tear up so easily in which case this should be regarded as a performance. In any case, there was a time when something like this would not have been paraded around to evoke superficial compassion and tribal instincts but would have been an embarrassment. Composure when watched by millions of people used to be a desirable trait.
Moreover, I can only imagine the laughter and derision or deliberate indifference from the left if a right winger ever started tearing up over harsh words or an insult.
The fact that the district Trump is attacking has a black majority is inferring that he believes the blacks are to blame for all the crime. He also seems to be calling Cummings and his people rodents. Trump does not know the inhabitants well enough to know if they are rodents. They probably do not have rat tails anyhow.
I think the man in the video is crying due to outrage over Trump's outrageous comments. I have been mad enough that I actually cried. So I think those tears are not staged at all. He is furious. He feels like his home is under atrack and it is ridiculous. Why attack an area like that, an area of Americans? They are Americans not terrorists.
