Anti-Trump Rick Wilson’s blunt assessment of imploding Dem Party leaves Don Lemon speechless

“Republican” strategist Rick Wilson is a virulent Never Trumper who could serve as the poster child for the Trump Derangement Syndrome cabal, and the only folks the hypocrite is harder on than President Trump and his supporters is Democrats when they fail to meet his expectations in besting Republicans.

And with the four radical, hard-left freshman Democrats known as “the squad” all but declaring war on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the party apparatus,  Wilson isn’t pleased, as he sees this being advantageous to Trump being reelected.

Appearing on CNN — naturally — Wilson was asked by anchor Don Lemon about a series of “tough love” tweets he posted castigating Democrats for the infighting, as he sided with Pelosi over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the ringleader of “the squad.”

His concern being that Democrats control the House and that hard-left progressives risk the party losing some of the more moderate seats in the upcoming election with their extreme agenda, in addition to swing states critical to the presidential election.


The assessment left Lemon at a temporary loss for words, though Wilson did fulfill his obligation of amusing the CNN host with a quip about progressives enjoying 32 years of Trump family members holding the office.

Eventually brushing it off with a robust laugh, Lemon informed his guest on who agrees with him.

“Do you know who else agrees with you? Donald Trump Jr.,” Lemon said.” He put out an op-ed entitled “Donald Trump will win the Democratic Party civil war.”

He went on to note that Trump Jr. claimed the reason won’t be division, but because extremists like Ocasio-Cortez are in charge of setting the party agenda.

“So how do you feel that, you know, you and Donald Trump Jr. agree?” Lemon asked.

“Well, Donald Trump Jr. and I don’t agree on a whole lot in this world, but somebody wrote that editorial,” Wilson said. “I’m doing this out of concern. He’s just doing this out of straight up trolling. Because they’re in a mode of trying to stoke this further.”

He went on to liken the former bartender to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, suggesting the senator was equally divisive within the GOP in his early years in office.

The assessment left Lemon mumbling something about the tea party, but it was hard to decipher what he said, as if he took one dosage too many of flu medicine or something.

There was another tweet from Wilson that Lemon didn’t reference, although it was a little crasser.

“‘How can Trump *possibly* win?’ ask the Democrats. Y’all are so bad at this it f–king hurts,” he tweeted.

As for the “civil war,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the infighting isn’t just a small-time family feud, but indicative of a full-fledged war within the Democrat Party.

“This isn’t a family feud. This is beyond what anyone thinks,“ he declared Thursday evening to Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
