Having been shunned by the new GOP after President Donald J. Trump tore through his 16 establishment-class friends in the 2016 primary like Grant through Richmond, formerly-relevant pundit Rick Wilson has forged a new path as a CNN contributor, where his new niche is bashing not only the President, but the ordinary Americans who elected him.
“The wall has always been a con for Donald Trump’s credulous rube ten-toothed base,” Wilson said Thursday on “CNN Tonight” with Don Lemon.
“The wall has always been a scam. It has always been a lie. Nothing about the wall has ever been real,” he continued.
Realizing that the ideas of he and his cocktail conservative ilk are more unpopular than ever, Wilson has pimped himself out to CNN as the network’s token Trump-bashing “Republican.” It is a grift, as was Wilson’s prior career carrying water for the indefensible GOP establishment that raped and plundered ordinary Americans for decades. A man has to make a living somehow.
Of course, Trump’s base is largely the same group of people that comprised failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s base, except for the fact that Trump far outpaced Romney among black and Hispanic voters, despite Romney’s pathetic efforts at minority outreach. Somehow, though, Romney’s base was not comprised of “toothless rubes” when he ran for the highest office in the land in 2012. The same goes for President George W. Bush’s voters.
To Wilson and his friends, 60 million ordinary American voters are just pawns in their larger game. When the elite can use them to enact their agenda – which is surely different from the agenda of the voters themselves – those ordinary Americans get a pat on the head from the ruling class in D.C. But when the elites’ subjects do not comply with the elites’ will, they become the object of scorn. Rick Wilson is the epitome of this paradigm, and he cannot stand the fact that those “toothless rubes” now recognize the swindle.
“[Trump] has a long history of being a con man,” Wilson continued, surely impressing his new liberal friends.
“He is conning these people who believe he is going to build a 2,000 mile, 30 feet high, concrete wall with laser moats and alligators in it. It’s just crazy and always has been,” he continued. “Yet they suspend their disbelief because they believe so strongly in Donald Trump – and this is – like I said, it’s always been a con, it’s always been a scam. It’s an insult to their intelligence, but obviously it seems to work with his base because they believe it over and over again – that nothing will stop the brown horde except the wall.”
Here, Wilson ascribes racism to 60 million plus Trump voters – a classic play from the leftist playbook – virtue signaling to his new overlords in liberal media that he is just like them, despite the fact that his base claim of “racism” is bogus.
Notice, too, that Wilson provides no solution for the problem of illegal immigration. That’s second nature for him. He and his GOPe friends made careers out of calling for “border security” while never securing the border.
For good measure, host Don Lemon noted that in “the wall didn’t work” in on the television show “Game of Thrones,” and that Trump should know that, because real life is completely the same as the fantasy series on HBO.
The tandem of bitter GOPe do-nothings and leftist loons on cable news proves one thing: America has the worst punditry class in the world. The commentariat is neither shrewd, nor in step with ordinary people. The disconnect is glaring, as is it’s obvious lack of self-reflection.
Wilson did not respond to a comment request.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders
The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.
The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.
The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:
U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.
“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”
… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.
Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.
Media: Jim @Acosta to @wolfblitzer: "A source present for this briefing … said the information relayed to lawmakers made it clear #Russia has already begun interfering in the 2020 election … Asked whether the information presented was alarming,' the source said, 'Very.'" pic.twitter.com/CFmcjI9d2w

So Russia wants a race between Sanders and Trump. They probably want Tulsi Gabbard as Bernie’s running mate. And no question they will help Moscow Mitch get re-elected. What a monumental mess Trump has made of America! He will let this happen. Putin’s USA. https://t.co/WiNtTOYK4T

So @BernieSanders was told by U.S. government officials that Russia has been working to help him win the Democratic primary, and he said NOTHING publicly??? This is OUTRAGEOUS! How is it any different than what Trump has done?? 😠

This should not be a surprise to anyone, is consistent with their enduring strategy & mirrors the analysis of @FPRI #FIE2020 team “Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign” https://t.co/eO0DocweEE

.@BernieSanders says he was briefed by federal officials one month ago that Russia was boosting his campaign.
Why did he never tell the American people? pic.twitter.com/xqG7aDWRmk

As I reported in 2016, Russian state media had two candidates they were rooting for: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. They were the candidates that, in the Kremlin's view, would 1) create the most chaos in the establishment, thereby weakening the U.S., 2) be friendlier to Russia.

And why didn’t Bernie Sanders tell us a month ago that Russia was trying to help his campaign? Did we not have a right to know this?
Or to know about his heart attack?
Or to see his medical records?
Or to see his tax returns that he hid for four years?
See a trend? https://t.co/zmLVrvKnc4

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.
“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.
Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.
“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.
The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
