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.

More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
