Using all the tricks in their toolbox

This was heard on the MSNBC show, Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell. A guest on the show at the 43 minute mark said this mashup of “tricks up (one’s) sleeve” (a secret plan) and “tools in (one’s) toolbox” (additional skills or tactics one can use). “My Ol Pal” also suggests “tricks of the trade” is in the mix, and I agree, particularly given the context.

Another tip of the hat to Frank King for spotting this one!
