‘Incredibly simple and easy to manipulate’: Rick Wilson torches ‘Trump’s vast, empty black hole of need-to-be-praised’

Published

With growing evidence of a continuing pattern of Obstruction of Justice by the Donald Trump White House, one Republican strategist is pointing the finger at Fox News for pushing conspiracy theories.

“I think it’s significant to look at the trajectory…the Republican Party is more unified behind Donald Trump as time has gone on than it ever has been,” MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes noted. “My theory is that it shows how much the party has fall in line behind him.”

“Absolutely,” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin agreed.

“They have allowed themselves to be led around by the nose by the likes of not only Donald Trump but Devin Nunes,” Rubin said with a look of distaste.

Republican strategist Rick Wilson doesn’t think that Republican leaders are sincere in their public statements about Trump.

“There’s such a deep cynicism among them, if you speak to them privately, they’ve learned this trick of playing Donald Trump’s ego,” Wilson explained.

“They’ve learned this trick of stroking Donald Trump’s vast, empty black hole of need-to-be-praised and patted on his fuzzy little head … and they recognize that they can get Trump to do virtually anything they want,” Wilson noted. “He’s incredibly simple and easy to manipulate.”

“They’re desperate to feed the monster of the Fox audience right now, that is so hyped up and motivated about this conspiracy theory and desperate to make sure that they do everything they can to protect Donald Trump even at the cost of compromising national security and sending a terrifying signal there will be no accountability, no oversight, Donald Trump can kill a live baby on national TV and they will do nothing,” Wilson suggested.

C-SPAN caller scorched by Muslim comedian for ignoring Jesus after she rants ‘gays are abomination to God’

Published

Comedian Dean Obeidallah, who is Muslim, told a C-SPAN caller that Republicans are not following the teachings of Jesus Christ even though they may oppose abortion and other policies advocated by evangelicals.

"I am independent," Pam, who called from Arkansas, told Obeidallah. "I vote according to my conscience of who would Jesus vote for if he were here on Earth. And he would not vote a group of people who believe in murdering children in the womb, on gays, which is an abomination to God, on false gods from other countries."

Obeidallah replied with a lesson on the Christian savior.

Conservative drops mic on complicit press trying to maintain access to Trump: ‘He’s a raving lunatic … tell it like it is’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin excoriated members of the press who -- in the pursuit of appearing "objective" -- refuse to "tell it like it is" when reporting on President Donald Trump.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, Rubin -- one of the president's more avid critics -- got right to the point.

"I think there are two things, "Rubin began. "One, I think that this notion of objectivity of balance has been so inculcated into the media that they now don't call it like they see it at all because they are walking on eggshells."

"When the president had that out of control press conference if you could call it that, when he was rambling on and on, they were so restrained, they described it as a celebration," she continued. "No, he was a raving lunatic. You need to use the words, the verbs and correct description so you give the public a feel of how dangerous this guy is. That is not being biased -- that is being accurate and revealing the danger this guy poses."

Trump belatedly snarls at media for reporting a portion of his wall fell over — two weeks after it happened

Published

on

On what must be a slow news day for President Donald Trump, he took to Twitter on Sunday morning to attack the press for reporting that a portion of his wall on the southern border toppled over two weeks ago -- and then blamed the collapse on "soaking wet" concrete and high winds.

Falling back on his stand-by "Fake News," the president tweeted: "Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall 'fell over', trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed 'forever'."
