Rick Wilson: Trump ‘reeked of defeat’ during his ‘death twitch’ of an Oval Office speech

Republican strategist Rick Wilson has written a gleefully vicious obituary for President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night speech on the border wall, which Wilson described as a “wet fart.”

Writing in the Daily Beast, Wilson said that Trump’s speech was a desperate bid to keep his flailing presidency alive — and in that regard, it failed miserably.

“This speech was supposed to be about forcing the national dialogue to stay on the border wall,” Wilson said. “No such luck. He reeked of defeat, clearly didn’t want to be there, and it showed. Trump looked exhausted, squinty, and bored, reading in a near-monotone from the Teleprompter. It went over like a wet fart.”

Wilson also said that Trump’s speech marked the end of his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, which he has repeatedly vowed will be financed by Mexico.

“The crisis he proudly created will end without a wall, and he knows it,” wrote Wilson. “The speech can most accurately be seen as the death twitch of The Wall cult. Trump can’t deliver a product, so he’s looking to sell something different.”

Wilson concluded that Trump’s speech shows he can’t just escape his political troubles in the way he repeatedly escaped multiple bankruptcies and failed marriages.

“The speech wasn’t the usual trick escape play for the man accustomed to getting away with damn near everything; it was the exact opposite,” he wrote. “The Wall is dead. The shutdown will end. Donald Trump blew it, bigly.”

Mueller is signaling he’ll be tough witness — and it could play right into the GOP’s hands

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is sending a very clear message: He doesn’t want to testify.

That’s the not-so-subtle subtext of the announcement that Mueller plans to submit the 448-page report detailing the findings of the Russia investigation as a statement for the record during his hearing before the House scheduled for Wednesday. Of course, Congress already has the report, so the move isn’t necessary. It’s Mueller’s way of saying, as he has previously, “The report is my testimony.”

‘They share staff with the Kremlin’: Maddow roasts Trump’s new favorite right-wing network OANN

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.

"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
