Do not get carried away about Rick Wilson

He hates the party of Dump. However, he still thinks the original Puke party is wonderful. They are not. They're the same corrupt pieces of shit we've known since Nixon.

1. I'm afraid this may be true of most of them

Bill Kristol hasn't changed his spots.


Still, I am enjoying Wilson's witt.

On edit: It's interesting to note that of all the never Trumpers, the only one who's taken responsibility for creating this mess is Joe Walsh.

In addition, he is funny as hell when he gets going and I need a laugh.

I don't find it hard to also remember his personal history.

20. Rick wrote a book you can get from the public library: "Everything Trump Touches Dies"...

He covers some of his extensive history as a GOP apparatchik in the beginning , why he thinks Hillary lost (ouch), and why he thinks Trump is appalling and wrecking the country.

But where he really excels is his description of how the hopeful and deluded crash and burn when they join this administration, and how the formerly well-respected and deluded likewise crash and burn. Try not to spit your drink on the pages of the book.

After we win in 2020, they'll be back to showing their true colors and backed with tons of money.

15. There are tens of millions of Republicans, Trump followers & supporters,

and they are going absolutely nowhere. If Democrats take the White House and Congress, they will still be here.
Unless the Left is vigilant and vote like it is their duty in every election and not just when they are excited or motivated, the Republicans will be back in power because hate what they stand for and do, they are relentless in pursuing their ideological goals.

19. I Think Most People Are Capable of Making Up Their Minds About Rick Wislon

He supported and made ads for Doug Jones in his Senate run in Alabama. That earned him my respect. He is also one of the best writers when it comes to critiquing Trump and his cult. I just can't bring myself to hate everyone who was a Repub before Trump came along.

22. They will do whatever they can to see Trump gone...

that included electing a viable Democrat. If they sound pushy at times about Democrats it because they know there is a lot riding on getting fuck-face out of there one way or another.

In my town the Republicans form a fusion with the Democrats to unseat the Republicans in power. It got so bad that this was the only way to unseat them.

29. I'm sick to think of how they will resurge. Trump is helping that

If, and that's a big if, the Trumpublican party is finally defeated. And in such definitive terms that the old guard of the GOP, the Never Trumpers, like Rick Wilson are once again the party's spokespersons. CNN and the rest of the MSM news will fall all over each other to praise and support this return to the Republican party of the old Bush senior days. When they could finally use their false equivalency between parties and at least look reasonably plausable.

Where David Frum, Meghan McCain, even Ana Navarro will be quick to speak up for the neo Trump Republican party. There will be this big news cycle on how the Republicans have finally found their way back. And are now a viable sane choice for conservative family value voters.

How is Trump helping this? Just by being so extreme and awful. Any Republican candidate after will be a breath of fresh air and sanity. And the MSM will give that story all kinds of free airtime to develop and establish itself.

He didn't call out Trump after he told 4 minority women of Congress to "go back". No he said house Democrats should be less like AOC and more like Connor Lamb (the one with ar-15 in campaign ads).

Guess what I supported Democrats when Rick Wilson was working for Giuliani.

While Bernie & other progressives receive hate.

Anyone can criticize Trump so was I when he was in my home state in Arizona calling Mexican rapists and the crowd cheered which led me to fear a rising far right nationalist movement.

50. VERY GOOD reminder!

Just because they don’t like trump doesn’t mean they’re either redeemed OR redeemable.

You just watch: As soon as trump is gone and they think the coast is clear, they’ll be back to supporting most, if not all, of the policies, people, and things we don’t believe in.
