Appearing on CNN with host Ana Cabrera, conservative election strategist Rick Wilson could only smirk and laugh when the host suggested Republicans should not put up with President Donald Trump’s shenanigans.
During a panel discussion on Trump posting a Fox Business Network montage video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stuttering and misspeaking, Wilson said Americans should prepare for a flood of bogus videos and doctored photos being spoon-fed by Trump to his rabid admirers.
“I think that we need it to be prepared for a flood of fake videos, fake news, doctored photographs, doctored documents because those things now can be put into the nerve system of the American political culture through Donald Trump’s 60 million people that follow him on twitter religiously, and they will believe the crazy,” he warned.
“We’re going to see this now amplified digitally in the 2020 election,” he added. “I think we need to be very much prepared for that and this sort of thing that goes through Rudy [Giuliani’s] Twitter feed, then Donald Trump retweets it — this is not a mistake.”
“This is a deliberate strategy,” he elaborated. “They embraced this as a deliberate strategy and I try not to use the word, propaganda, too loosely but it’s in fact, propaganda, a distorted version of the truth and people need to be very mindful of that in 2020.”
“So shouldn’t Republicans be refuting this then? Doesn’t it cross a line for political discourse?” Cabrera asked.
“Are you new here?” Wilson laughed, before adding sardonically, “They’re not going to do anything.”

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host
During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.
Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.
"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."
Ex-White House aide snaps at CNN’s Camerota after she calls out Sarah Sander’s lies
In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.
Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.
"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
