GOP consultant, and frequent critic of Donald Trump, Rick Wilson raked the president over the coals on Saturday morning, telling an MSNBC panel that Trump is using Twitter to fire up his base and bait them  into ignoring the “rising tide of trouble” he’s in.

Following a morning of Trump frantically lashing out on Twitter at the FBI, the media and Democrats, Wilson  smacked the president for “rage tweeting,” awith Wilson also pointing at White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders and legal adviser Rudy Giuliani.

“I think in the response from my old boss, Rudy and White House and Sarah Sanders and rage tweeting this morning, there’s no denial embedded in their response at all,” Wilson observed, noting a New York Times report on Trump being investigated for being a possible Kremlin agent.

“They are not denying this” he continued. “They are saying we will attack Jim Comey and [Andrew] McCabe and the FBI. All of this is Donald Trump’s consciousness of guilt screaming out of these responses — they are hoping they can throw more bait out there to the Trump base and they will stick with him.”

“Proof of his collusion with Russia, the proof of the conspiracy of his campaign to cooperate with Russia, his long-standing business ties with Russia and post-election behavior toward Russia has raised not just a few red flags but a whole sea of red flags,” he accused.

“It seems these folks have their message together because there’s not a real defense here,” Wilson continued. “Donald Trump said these things to [NBC’s] Lester Holt, said these things in the Oval Office to the Russians.”

“God knows what he said to Putin behind closed doors,” he concluded before adding, “This is a rising tide of trouble to this president.”

WATCH: Trump walked out of a 1990 interview with CNN when they asked about his finances

Published

on

Long before he became the president, Donald Trump was a business tycoon who had trouble holding onto his money.

As New York Times reporting on the president's personal income tax records has shown, Trump throughout his career would frequently burn through money at a stunning rate throughout the 1990s, at one point reporting adjusted gross losses of nearly $1 billion per year in 1994 and 1995.

The tax records obtained by the Times show that things really started going downhill for Trump in 1990, when he reported a gross net loss of $400 million.

GOP lawmaker in Tennessee admits to prescribing opioids to his second cousin — who was also his lover

Published

Tennessee state Sen. Joey Hensley (R) is under investigation by a medical review board for providing opioids to family members, one of which was his second cousin -- who also happened to be his lover, the Tennessean reports.

Hensley, an anti-LGBT ideologue who wrote his state's infamous "Don't Say Gay" bill, admits that he prescribed drugs for his relatives, but says he's the only doctor in town.

“There are not many people in the county who haven’t been to see Dr. Hensley, and she was one of them,” defense attorney David Steed said, adding, “Half of the county are Hensleys. Everyone there knows everyone. There were multiple relationships and the physician-patient relationship was only one and somewhat incidental to the others.”

West Virginia voter: ‘I’ll probably vote for Donald Trump’ because ‘he keeps the people to the TV set’

Published

A group of West Virginia voters explained their voting choices to MSNBC on Monday.

"I don't have TV, I don't have internet," one woman said. "I'm pretty far behind. And I bet you a lot of around here are because we're poor. I don't know nothing about Joe [Biden]. I ain't never heard nothing about him at all. Donald Trump, I know a little bit about him because of the past couple of years."

"I'll probably vote for Donald Trump," Jeff Kibbey told MSNBC. "He keeps the people to the TV set."

"One, Trump is good," Francis Senter insisted. "Biden -- however you pronounce his name -- is good too. But like I say, I can't judge either one of them. It's the same community it ain't never going to change because if it was going to change it wouldn't look like this right here."
