The senator is a democrat, so I see no upside to staging this. But a few of the people in this entourage seem to be acting, and badly. But maybe that is just how progs roll.
The videographer seems strangely part of this choreography, and the smug line delivered by one of the entourage, “don’t cry,” seems staged, mainly because the guy has a creepy smile, one that any sane person would wipe off his face with their boot.
I guess the videographer is about 4’9″ and has a milk leg. That is the only way a prog would act “tough” in this situation.
I dunno. Maybe it’s just me.
