Trump’s ‘true believers’ will pay a price for believing his coronavirus lies: Rick Wilson

Published

on

Appearing remotely on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” conservative campaign consultant Rick Wilson said that, due to Donald Trump’s history of downplaying the coronavirus health risk that has only changed recently, some of his most avid supporters will likely suffer disproportionately from the virus because they failed to take the threat seriously.

Host Reid kicked off the interview by telling the NeverTrumper, “I’ve had friends emailing me things they’re getting from people — family members and friends on Facebook saying it’s all a lie, they still believe it. They believe his pivot isn’t real. But the danger is real, this keeping away from one another and doing our social distancing only works if everybody does it.”

“If his people don’t believe it and believe the tough coverage is just out to get him rather than trying to save lives, we have a problem,” she added.

‘I mean, look, Joy, the small number of true believer Trumpers who will not be touched by this, I suspect they’ll be going to a lot of funerals because they’re going to be the people who helped spread this,” he explained. “We had a Florida legislator, (Republican) Mike Hill, post on Facebook, on Friday afternoon I think, a bunch of guys joking they’re not going to do social distancing, they’re going to go out, blah, blah blah.”

“These people who believe everything Donald Trump says, spent seven weeks hearing this is a fake thing, it’s a hoax, the media is out to get him and this is where science and the trump reality bubble collide,” he continued. “And those people that are laughing it off right now are going to be the ones who have a proximate responsibility for the fact this is going to take longer and cost nor and cost more lives than it should have.”

Locke is continuing his defiance of social distancing orders and is holding a Good Friday service. In a video posted to his Twitter account, he showed preparations for a reenactment of Jesus' crucifixion. Among the actors was his 16-year-old son, who can be seen in the video portraying a bloodied Christ on the cross.

#MattGaetzIsATool trends on Twitter yet again after GOP congressman gets brutally roasted on Fox News

Published

During on a segment on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show this Thursday, Democratic strategist Chris Hahn and GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz locked horns over Gaetz's past stunt where he sarcastically wore a gas mask on the House floor during the early days of the coronavirus outbreak.

During the exchange, Gaetz accused Democrats of attempting to use the coronavirus to suppress voters.

"That’s what James Carville was doing when he was saying the people are going to die if they show up and vote," Gaetz said, addressing Hahn. "That was voter suppression coming directly from him — it wasn’t Republicans saying, ‘Don’t vote.’ It was one of your people."
