Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC’s Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on “The 11th Hour.”

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a “proud member of the basket of deplorables” explaining why she’ll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

“The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time,” the woman argued. “Very long time.”

“He doesn’t lie. I know y’all say he does, he doesn’t. He doesn’t,” she inaccurately claimed. “And I’m just going to be honest, I’m not trying to be mean, but the way the media treats him, it’s a disgrace.”

Wilson, the author of the bestselling 2018 book Everything Trump Touches Dies, offered his analysis.

“First off, it is grievance-palooza,” Wilson said. “There is not this affirmative feeling about the greatness of our country or some vision for the future. It is, he is the avatar of my anger, he is going to smite the people I can’t smite.”

And there were a lot of people there, classic Florida, a smattering of Q-Anon,” he said, referring to the bizarre conspiracy theory.

“There were people wearing their formal flip-flops and their dress cargo pants,” he observed.

Wilson described the speech as “a greatest hits tour.”

“This is the boy band now reduced to touring the state fair, the same song from a couple of years ago and while there is a niche audience for it, it hasn’t expanded his base one iota,” he explained.

“Those folks tonight, Donald Trump can say and do anything and there is no boundary he can cross with them that loses their vote. The ones committed enough to go show up in that room tonight live in a completely separate political sphere that is hermetically sealed,” Wilson argued. “They live inside Donald Trump’s definition of reality.”

“He can tell them the wall is 3,000 feet long and made of solid gold and has alligator moats and they’ll say of course it does. It is all in their head, of course, but they believe what he tells them and it doesn’t matter,” he continued.

“This is something Democrats have to face very quickly is he is going to spout a torrent, a tidal wave of BS in this campaign and they’ll try to play catch up every day and won’t be able to because he can lie with a speed and faculty no one else has ever had,” he warned.

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.

"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism

Published

President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.

By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”

The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind

Published

on

Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.

His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
