Rick Wilson is an anti-Trump GOP strategist who had a lot to say about President Donald Trump’s supporters while chatting with Don Lemon of CNN.
Wilson stated that Trump’s followers are a “credulous rube ten-toothed base” and they’re being conned into thinking a border wall was a good idea that had a chance to happen.
Don Lemon didn’t have much to say about Wilson sinking low to call Trump supporters names, insulting them instead of working towards bridging the divisive gap built over the last two years with people reaching for slapbacks instead of pats on the back.
Don Lemon of course, could have interjected with some class, but rather went for the crass and possibly hoped that Wilson’s mini rant would collect a few viral clicks. It did, but it’s not successful in changing anyone’s mind and just added fuel to the fire burning in the political realm.
In other words, Wilson running his mouth adds no value or quality to our current situation and Lemon had a chance to step up, but failed as badly as Wilson.
The Daily Caller filled in more of what Wilson ranted about, with him saying:
“Nothing about the wall has ever been real and Donald Trump knows it. He is a guy who has a long history in his career as being a con man. He is conning these people who believe he’s going to build a 2,000 mile, 30-foot high concrete wall with laser moats and alligators in it. It’s just crazy and always has been. And yet they suspend their disbelief because they believe so strongly in Donald Trump.”
He really said that, moats and all.
“Rick Wilson about the wall and Trump supporters: The wall has always been a con for Donald Trump’s credulous rube ten-toothed base. The wall has always been a scam. It has always been a lie. Nothing about the wall has ever been real,” they tweeted.
Wilson believes that Trump is lying to his fan base and is insulting to them by continuing to reference the border wall he wants along the edge of Mexico. Government has been shut down for about two weeks and neither side seems to be willing to budge, just yet.
Wilson clamored on, “Like I said, it’s always been a con. It’s always been a scam. It’s an insult to their intelligence,” he said. “But obviously it seems to work with his base because they believe it over and over again that nothing will stop the brown hoard except the wall.”
That’s when Don Lemon brought up “Game of Thrones” – the popular fiction from HBO.
Lemon mentioned the show having a wall that didn’t work. According to the story, the wall worked for a very long time until a dragon came around and messed things up.
