A Trump-hating GOP pundit and Daily Beast columnist joked yesterday about the death of President Donald J. Trump’s Director of the National Economic Council, Larry A. Kudlow.
Rick Wilson tweeted the following yesterday:
"Start the Kudlow Death Clock"
— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) June 10, 2018
It appears that Wilson may have his wish granted.
Minutes ago, Trump tweeted that Kudlow has suffered a heart attack and is being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center:
Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2018
Author, lawyer, and journalist Mike Cernovich retweeted the Wilson tweet, sending Twitter into an uproar and putting Wilson on the defensive.
Ah. I see why the dumbassery in my TL is spiking 5000000%.
Lisping steroid victim Thernovith is sicking hith twoll army on me.

“Ah. I see why the dumbassery in my TL is spiking 5000000%,” tweeted Wilson. “Lisping steroid victim Thernovith is sicking hith twoll army on me.”
Not only did Wilson wish death upon a Trump ally, but he also made fun of Cernovich for his lisp. These are the musings of a bitter old man who enjoyed success as a member of the establishment GOP, palling around with Democrats. Those days are long over with the massively successful Trump presidency.
This level of derangement – wishing harm upon political enemies – used to be a trait practiced only by liberals. Wilson’s remarks are just another example of the blurring lines between the GOP establishment and the political left.
