Rick Wilson nukes GOP's slavish devotion to Trump: 'The word 'cult' isn't strong enough'

On Wednesday, CNN's Brooke Baldwin mediated a debate between Republican strategist Rick Wilson and talk show host and Trump fan Ben Ferguson about Sen. Bob Corker's (R-Tennessee) recent rant against the Republican party's slavish devotion to President Donald Trump.

Corker called the GOP's fealty to the President "cult-like," railing against members of his party for failing to stand up to the President.

Wilson argued that the word cult was not actually strong enough to describe the GOP's deference to Trump.

"These folks have almost adopted Trumpism as a religion," Wilson said.
