GOP strategist Rick Wilson weighed in on President Donald Trump’s racist Twitter attack on four Democratic congresswomen this week with an epic column burning him down to the ground.
Trump’s racist attack on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) has already drawn mass outrage even though Trump’s racist conservative base is delighted.
All four congresswomen are American citizens. Three of them were born right here in the United States. And while Omar was born in Somalia, she came to this country as a child and became a citizen at the age of 17.
In fact, she’s been an American citizen longer than First Lady Melania Trump.
The House is now preparing to condemn Trump’s racism, but not before Wilson humiliated him in a scathing column for The Daily Beast.
“Donald Trump’s performance these last few days show how powerful a man devoted to political and racial arson can be when he is beyond shame, reason, and dignity and possessed with the power and platform of the presidency,” Wilson began before laying into Trump for sh*tting on the American Dream with his racism.
“In the scope of a half-dozen tweets, President Grievance managed to ignite a racial brouhaha designed to frame 2020, push his white-nat-adjacent audience into paroxysms of joy, and take a massive dump on the American dream,” he wrote. “Trump was due for one of his periodic dog-whistles to the alt-reich segment of his base, and he delivered in spades.”
Wilson then piled on by reminding Trump of his recent faceplants.
“The outburst came after a series of humiliating political losses in recent weeks,” he continued. “A failed G20 summit that resulted in a sloppy photo-op handjob for Kim Jong Un and zero progress toward disarmament was followed by an episode of John Bolton’s Guns of August in the Persian Gulf.”
In the end, Wilson informed Trump’s supporters that no matter how hard they try to scrub away Trump’s racist past, he’ll always sabotage their efforts with temper tantrums like the one he threw on Sunday.
“Since his emergence on the political scene, Trump’s supporters have tried desperately to retcon away his long record of racist and racist-adjacent behavior, from his family business practices to his calls to execute the Central Park Five to birtherism to his defense of Charlottesville’s alt-right incel army,” Wilson concluded. “Their efforts have been in vain because Trump keeps saying the quiet part out loud.”
