Following President Donald Trump’s off-the-rails United Nations press conference in which Politico’s Blake Hounshell said that POTUS couldn’t “help himself,” Republican strategist Rick Wilson had a grand old time reading Trump to filth.
During a CNN panel discussion on Trump’s news conference that followed a third woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, Wilson used his silver tongue to unleash a stream of venom worthy of applause.
“You know, it’s weird that he’s always the martyr,” Wilson noted. “He’s always the one who is falsely accused. The whole press conference, though, was so off the rails.”
He continued, “It was like he had had a line of coke and a can of Four Loko before he went out there. He’s sweating, rambling. But every time he got back on to himself he shrank and got on to that poor, pitiful me thing. There was a lot going on there today.”
After anchor Don Lemon pointed out that Wilson wrote about how everything Trump touches dies, he asked Wilson whether that applies to Kavanaugh.
“We’re going to see tomorrow because i think Donald Trump sent out some strong signals today that he’s going to bail on this guy,” Wilson responded. “It will all come down to this for Brett Kavanaugh. You better be great on TV tomorrow because that’s the only scorekeeping mechanism Donald Trump uses.”
