Lincoln Project ‘grifter’ Rick Wilson suggests Trump could be ‘dead or in jail’ and still win GOP primary

There have been few people who have been more obsessed with former President Donald J. Trump over the last eight years than Rick Wilson of the disgraced collection of D.C. grifters at The Lincoln Project and the bald avenger conjured up some colorful rhetoric to make his prediction for the Republican primaries.

Wilson appeared with rabid left-wing SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah on the latest edition of “The Dean Obeidallah Show” and is always the case with Wilson, the topic turned to Trump – the orange sun at the center of his galaxy – as well as the entry of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis into the field of GOP candidates who will take their best shot at toppling the ex-POTUS.

Both Trump haters were salivating over the prospect of a nasty battle between the two that would leave both damaged for the matchup with President Joe Biden, the deeply unpopular incumbent who needs to once again bamboozle enough independents and swing voters to win the election, and Obeidallah asked the veteran political operative how leftist can “amplify” the eye-gouging scrum between the two Republican heavyweights.

Wilson replied by conjuring up a scene from a famous 1970s movie, “I want you to think about that scene in Jaws where Roy Schneider’s on the back of the boat throwing chum in the water. That would be me. I want DeSantis and Trump to fight and fight and fight. And fight and fight. Now, I want that because I know. And a lot of my former conservative friends are like, well, you’re just, oh, why don’t you love DeSantis? DeSantis is a guy who is terrible at this work.”

“Trump still has a stranglehold over the Republican Party,” he continued. I have to plan for the worst case scenario. The worst case scenario is that Donald Trump will be the nominee in the Republican Party once again. There is very there are very few paths to get a Ron DeSantis or any other of these jokers in…the… in the field over the finish line in the primary.”

“I mean, Trump has to be dead or in jail,” Wilson said. “And even in those cases, he still might win the primaries.”

“And Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump, though, presents a great Lincoln Project opportunity messaging moment and a leverage moment because the more they fight, the normal Republicans who are flocking back to Ron DeSantis in hopes of getting rid of Donald Trump, all those normies now have to face a really hard fact. The guy they thought was going to save them can’t,” he said. ” And and the guy they rejected and said, Oh, Trump’s too much. He’s too extreme. He’s too crazy. He tried to overthrow the government. He tried to murder Mike Pence. He ordered an attack on the Capitol.”

“And and they may be sick of Trump, but DeSantis actually presents a worse set of options for them,” he added. “But if I can keep them fighting as long as humanly possible, if I can make it as bloody and painful and loud and noisy as possible, there is a way to split off more of those voters than we were split than we got off in 2020. We modeled it depending on the state, between three and 8% of Republicans in 2020. Given the current circumstances, our numbers are between seven and 11% in these key states now. We, the pool has expanded because DeSantis is an insane authoritarian.”

By keeping them “fighting as long as humanly possible.” Wilson may as well just be a Democrat and who knows, maybe he secretly is one.
