Political Hack Joe Wilson Attacked Joe Biden for Years and is Now Endorsing Him for President
Political strategist Rick Wilson has made a name for himself as one of the most virulent Never Trumpers in the Trump era.
His anti-Trump Super PAC, the Lincoln Project, recently endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president.
Interestingly enough, the Daily Caller has pointed out that Wilson has a long track record of attacking Biden as “creepy” and calling him a “jackass” and a “moron.”
The Lincoln Project, which is led by Wilson and other milquetoast Republicans including George Conway, endorsed Biden on April 8, 2020.
“As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady our ship of state, bind up our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a national leader,” co-founder Reed Galen said while rolling out the endorsement.
However, such glowing praise of Biden is a complete break from Wilson’s past comments about the former Vice President.
Wilson characterized Biden as “America’s most creepy” in a tweet back in April 2015.
In April 2013, Wilson tweeted: “There are actually people in America who believe that Joe Biden could be President. Really. Not kidding.”
“No, let me remind you again, Washington press…Joe Biden is a moron. A charming, affable moron, but a moron by any standard,” Wilson commented in September 2013.
“When someone says ‘Joe Biden is Joe Biden’ they mean ‘Joe Biden is unhinged,’” Wilson declared in a tweet from September 2012.
He also declared that Biden is “America’s greatest living national jackass” in a tweet from August 2011.
Although Wilson’s group praised Biden for his leadership, Wilson proclaimed in an October 2009 tweet that Biden has “been wrong on almost EVERY foreign policy issue for DECADES.”
Wilson downplayed his past Biden tweets criticizing Biden when they started re-surfacing on the night of April 9 on Twitter, writing: “There’s a difference between us; you think we’re still in 2012, and I know that Donald Trump is a proximate danger to America right this minute.”
Wilson is an establishment mainstay of the highest order.
He has even called for throwing mandatory vaccination skeptics into camps.
Wilson should receive derision and be totally ostracized from polite society for his pro-establishment takes and petty behavior.
