GOP strategist Rick Wilson slammed President Trump for being a “man-baby” and dismissed Reince Priebus as a weak and ineffective chief of staff.
The Republican consultant disagreed with discussion that the president is “rebranding” and creating a “Trump Doctrine” during an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In” on Monday.
“This is a president with a stalking gigantic case of ADHD,” Wilson went off to host Chris Hayes. “He cannot focus for 30 seconds on anything. Every bright and shiny object distracts him and he doesn’t believe anything in his heart. There’s no ideological North Star for this guy, there’s nothing he truly cares about except for his own ego. Everything is drawn to the event horizon of his ego.”
Wilson apparently based his argument on reports from the mainstream media which only focus on criticizing the president and belittling the significant accomplishments he has made in his short time in office, including the highly praised choice of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch who was sworn in on Monday.

Wilson continued to disparage the president, saying he is “not a guy who has thought about issues and thought about policies beyond what he thinks gets a good applause line at rallies. The fact that this is a guy with a famous slogan on a red hat is not a legislative or political or governance agenda at all.”
In the panel discussion, which included former RNC chairman Michael Steele, the MSNBC guests tackled the topic of Trump’s agenda and questioned who is really in charge at the White House.
Wilson scoffed at Priebus as not being “adult supervision” for Trump and wondered if anyone would notice if he was gone.
“Every president benefits from having a strong, effective chief of staff. Reince Priebus is a nice man and good administrator in some ways, but he is not adult supervision for this man-baby president,” Wilson said.
“He’s not able to say to Trump, ‘Stop tweeting, shut up, read your speeches, go to these events, do these things, make these calls. Stop having 47 people rush in and out of your office and change your mind on things every 30 seconds,” he continued his tirade.
“You know, there’s a lot of talk about whether Reince Priebus will leave or stay,” Wilson concluded. “The question is would you even notice at this point? This is a president who manages himself, he is not managed by a chief of staff. Every president needs one — it’s an iron law of Washington.”
