The Delta variant is raging in Florida. And the state is nearly setting daily records for cases of COVID-19. One might never know how bad it is, though, if they paid attention to governor Ron DeSantis.
Rick Wilson warns Democrats: "Here's what you don't get; the Trump GOP as comprised today isn't stupid. It's evil. They're smart. They'll play to your goodwill and instinct for a bipartisan veneer on the Jan 6th issue...when Speaker Greene takes office, let me know how that bipartisan circle jerk worked out for you."
For many years, Rick Wilson worked for the Republican party helping candidates get elected. Over the last few years, the former strategist has been doing every thing he can to stop Republicans from getting elected.
The “big lie” is not unique to Trump but rather constitutes a long-standing Republican tradition and political practice that, far from distinguishing itself from Trump’s governance, in fact enabled and even created it.
Conservative Rick Wilson suggested on Friday that the Trump White House is in a panic following a story claiming the President mocked dead U.S. soldiers and refused to visit a military cemetery.
Wilson, a former Republican political strategist opposed to Trump, shared a tweet from the President defending himself against a charge that he didn’t want to grant the late Senator John McCain a state funeral.
“This, in Trump-speak, is a full confession of guilt. He’s sweaty and terrified right now,” Wilson wrote.

According to a blockbuster report in The Atlantic, Trump didn’t want to honor McCain, a veteran and Republican grandee, saying “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral.”
When Trump saw flags flying at half-mast for McCain, he reportedly said: “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.”

the overnight scramble
Donald Trump’s suggestion that the election should be postponed was immediately met with outrage, mockery and dismissal on Thursday from politicians, journalists and commentators.
The President mused about delaying November’s election – presumably the presidential ballot – due to what he asserted was rampant voter fraud in mail-in ballots.
Democratic Senator and possible vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris saw Trump’s tweet as evidence of his state of mind and inevitable defeat in the polls.
“Donald Trump is terrified. He knows he’s going to lose to Joe Biden,” Harris said.
Donald Trump is terrified. He knows he's going to lose to @JoeBiden. It will require every single one of us to make that happen.
William Barr has branded protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death “extreme” as protests continue throughout the country and federal agents teargas civilians.
The Attorney General won almost instant scorn for his remarks on Thursday, including from one conservative critic opposed to President Donald Trump. He did acknowledge the tragedy of Floyd’s death, however.
“We had that terrible death in Minneapolis,” Barr said
“But then we had this extreme reaction that has demonized police and called for the defunding of police departments.”
You know what’s “extreme”? Begging for your life while a cop murders you by kneeling on your fucking throat for eight minutes.

Conservative Rick Wilson has compared Donald Trump to a “drunk uncle” following his rambling impromptu press conference on Tuesday. He believes it’s a sign of an imploding campaign.
The former Republican strategist shared his thoughts in an op-ed for The Daily Beast on Wednesday.
“Like an addled necromancer with the heavy charnel stench of a dead campaign on him, Trump spent over an hour chanting the old incantations from an eldritch grimoire (The Dark Booke of Bannon, perhaps) only to find that nothing was working,” Wilson wrote.
“Even his most devoted followers were eyeing the exits and wondering when some apprentice would step forward to lead him off gently off the stage for a rest and a posset of unicorn blood.”
Trump’s confused comments at the hurriedly arranged press conference drew criticism and even allegations that the President had illegally used government property for a campaign speech.
“For the tiny minority of Trumphadis who still imagine there is some rational, considered version of Donald Trump lurking inside that hair helmet, what they saw Tuesday was a desperate candidate flailing, madly spewing agitprop that even a Tucker Carlson producer would stare at in awe of its madness,” Wilson went on.
“Trump runs the entire campaign operation from his impulses and instincts,” he said.
“They can hire 5,000 people for his campaign effort, and not one of them can persuade or change him.”
“Trump was struggling Tuesday to reconnect to the grunting populism of his 2016 success. In it, he was never held to account no matter how much footsie he played with the alt-right and its media outlets of record,” Wilson argued.
“Now, the feeling that the magic isn’t working and that that spell has finally failed isn’t wishful thinking on the part of the Never Trump movement.”
“It’s a president, a presidency, and a campaign in steep decline. You hate to see it.”
The Lincoln Project republicans came out in full force last December, declaring in a New York Times op-ed their mission of defeating both Trump this November as well as Trumpism, meaning they are seeking to erase the republican majority in the senate.
Rick Wilson is holding nothing back these days in his criticism of Donald Trump. The former Republican political strategist openly accused the President of treason.
Wilson spoke to The Daily Beast‘s Molly Jong-Fast on Tuesday. He is a co-host for that news outlet’s New Abnormal podcast. Wilson didn’t pull any punches.
“The word traitor and the word treason in this country gets abused like crazy,” Wilson said.
“It’s true. But sometimes by you,” Jong-Fast said.
“But in this case, it’s not an abuse of the word,” Wilson replied.
Wilson is referring to reports that Trump knew perhaps as long ago as last year that Russia was offering bounties for the deaths of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
“He met the literal definition of treason. He gave aid and comfort to the enemy and abetted the enemy. He did not take action.”
He went on to suggest that Trump would end up being so disrespected that people would even target his final resting place.
“This is a guy who was already going down into the dustbin of history,” Wilson said.
“And now there’s going to be a line at his grave where they’re going to have to throw cat litter down. Because people are gonna piss on it for all time,” he said.
“Wait, things got very dark,” Jong-Fast said.
The President this morning claimed the story about Russian bounties was a hoax.

Donald Trump’s critics have rounded on him after he shared a conspiracy about a 75-year-old peace activist. The President told his Twitter followers that the man could have faked his assault by police.
“Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur,” Trump said.
“I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?”
Buffalo police pushed Martin Gugino to the ground and two officers
have been charged with second-degree assault
Conservative Rick Wilson has preemptively attacked Donald Trump’s impending executive order on social media. He also warned Republicans it could end badly for them.
“We don’t know what the WH Counsel’s office is going to vomit out when it comes to this social media executive order, but the idea by many Trump ‘conservatives’ that this is a Good Thing, is I think, ludicrously wrong,” Wilson tweeted.

Republican consultant Rick Wilson wrote a book called “Everything Trump Touches Dies” and this morning’s news is showing just how true that is. Canadian singer Shania Twain responded to an interview question by saying she would have voted for Trump if she could, because he seemed like he was “honest.”
In The Guardian Twain was quoted as saying, “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bull——t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”
The backlash against Twain was immediate and severe. Minutes after the interview was published, her name was the top trending item on Twitter. Even longtime fans were denouncing her and disowning her.
Her positive comments about the president may have killed her career comeback, so she has been doing her best to take back her fateful words. She issued a statement to PEOPLE Magazine, saying, “I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with The Guardian relating to the American president.”
The top-selling singer also posted a series of tweets in which she attempted to undo the damage caused by her words supporting the worst president in U.S. history.
“I would like to apologise to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context (1/4)”

Republican strategist Rick Wilson said on CNN that Ivanka Trump is more likely to be driving to visit her husband in prison than she is of ever being president.
"The stilted nature of the text alone was sort of a tell that President Unindicted Co-conspirator was involved," Rick Wilson said before unloading on Trump.
Republican political strategist Rick Wilson, who knows a thing or two about D.C., has some rather terrifying advice for White House staffers. It's time to save yourselves.
Pitted against the US intel community (IC) we find a 'bullsh*t tornado' of what Rick Wilson calls "magic spells and rejected X-Files scripts."
"Trump's poll numbers suck for a reason. It's not complicated. He. Is. Bad. At. Being. President."
"Trump was trying to sell what Trump always sells, which is sort of a flatulent mass of his own fantasy about what the product is."
After Trump accused President Obama, without evidence, of personally abusing his power to spy on Trump, Republican strategist Rick Wilson pointed out just how stupid that accusation really is.
