Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever

a book by Rick Wilson

(our site's book review)

Rick Wilson Brings His Darkly Funny Humor and Biting Analysis to the Absurdity of American Politics in the Age of Trump

The Amazon blurb says that A respected, long-time Republican strategist, ad-maker, and contributor for The Daily Beast, skewers the disease that is destroying the conservative movement and burning down the GOP: Trumpism.

In Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson brings his darkly funny humor and biting analysis to the absurdity of American politics in the age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party he served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst President in American history.

No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right. A leader of the Never Trump movement, he warns his own party of the political catastrophe that leaves everyone involved with Trump with reputations destroyed and lives in tatters.

Wilson unblinkingly dismantles Trump’s deceptions and the illusions to which his supporters cling, shedding light on the guilty parties who empower and enable Trump in Washington and the news media. He calls out the race-war dead-enders who hitched a ride with Trump, the alt-right basement dwellers who worship him, and the social conservatives who looked the other way.

Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever deftly chronicles the tragicomic Trump story from the early campaign days through the shock of election night, to the inconceivable trainwreck of Trump's first year. Rick Wilson provides not only an insightful analysis of the Trump administration, but also an optimistic path forward for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country.

Combining insider political analysis, blunt truths, and black humor, Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever is perfect for those on either side of the aisle who need a dose of unvarnished reality, a good laugh, a strong cocktail, and a return to sanity in American politics.

Scalpel in Hand, Wilson Dissects Trumpism—It Isn't Pretty

Scalpel in hand, a conservative strategist dissects Trumpism, the Washington, D.C., swamp, and the new GOP. The autopsy report isn't pretty...Wilson's insider take is hilarious, smartly written, and usually spot-on. Somebody had to do it." (—Kirkus Reviews)

“A searingly honest, bitingly funny, comprehensive answer to the question we find ourselves asking most mornings: ‘What the hell is going on?’…. A fascinating, fierce and fearless exposition of the political mess America finds itself in today.” (—The Chicago Tribune)

“His raw-brawling style and deftly articulated rage…have made Wilson an unexpected darling of the left, and a kind of Cassandra in steel-toed boots for his own party…. The book is a clarion call to conservatives about how ‘Kim Jong Don's’ reverse-Midas touch is ‘an Orwellian erasure of what conservatism represents’ that will define the party for generations to come.” (—The Week)

“Hear the sizzle? That’s the sound of Wilson, Republican strategist and now Never-Trumper, burning the president, his family, cabinet, and GOP stalwarts.” (—Booklist)

“Veteran GOP political strategist Wilson, who for decades was a top Republican attack dog and was the guy the party relied on to craft its message and strategy, offers a scathing, profane, unflinching, and laugh-out-loud funny rebuke of Donald Trump and his presidency...those who share his views will find this rewarding.” (—Publishers Weekly)

" . . . you can read every last page and not learn anything new. Instead, you're told how righteously angry he is — angry about how everyone from the evangelical right, to House Speaker Paul Ryan, to former RNC chairman Reince Priebus, to lobbyists, to big dollar Republican donors have genuflected to Trumpism and the man himself. All are sellouts, either cynical opportunists or too cowardly to stand up to Trump — or both. . . . He suggests the Republican Party embrace optimism of the future, ethical reform, free markets, rule of law, diversity and a laissez faire attitude about social issues. . . . Wilson's anti-Trump criticisms are popular on Twitter, where he aggressively attacks pro-Trump accounts with his signature style of wit and insults. Brevity is the soul of wit — and this book would have been better off left in a series of tweets." (Source: In 'Everything Trump Touches Dies,' Few Are Spared, Tim Mak, NPR)


Wilson's Speaks for All of Us—Except the Basket of Deplorables

Wilson speaks for all of us, expressing our nausea at the 2016 election results (even though we didn't want establishment queen Hillary either) and the way everything in politics and government quit merely going downhill, and began going off a cliff. The ugliness, the polarization, the Big Orange Oompa Loompa insisting on impulsively performing angry toddler tantrum antics in order to keep the focus on himself. Like a barking dog, willing to do anything to get attention, even though it is normally bad attention. It's almost too much to bear.

The ugliness, the polarization, the Big Orange Oompa Loompa insisting on impulsively performing angry toddler tantrum antics in order to keep the focus on himself—anything for attention

"To Americans who didn't vote for President Trump, life in Trumplandia can often feel like being a survivor in a zombie flick. It's as if we're hiding in a boarded-up house, clinging to one another, as the malevolently somnambulant hordes of MAGAs grumble and lurch toward us, bringing with them certain death and destruction. If, like me, you relate to this feeling, think of Rick Wilson as the bad-ass hombre who shows up in the middle of the second act, ready to teach us how to fight back. . . . The book is a clarion call to conservatives about how "Kim Jong Don's" reverse-Midas touch is "an Orwellian erasure of what conservatism represents" that will define the party for generations to come."

Rick Wilson is a seasoned Republican political strategist and infamous negative ad-maker. His regular column with The Daily Beast is a must-read in the political community. Published in The Washington Post, Politico, The Hill, The Federalist, Independent Journal Review, he’s also a frequent guest on Real Time with Bill Maher, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, With Friends Like These, and the national networks. Rick Wilson lives in Tallahassee, Florida with his wife, three dogs, and a nameless cat. They have two grown children.


The Fascistic Left and the Demagogic Right Will Be Having a Race to the Bottom—on Our Dime

Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever dismantles the fiscal insanity, scary delusions, rampant hypocrisy, as well as the casual corruption that are the hallmarks of the Trump administration. It is highly educational and thought-provoking, and wickedly funny.

The U.S. is ass-deep in weapons and our polarization is becoming radical; the violence has already started

As Rick Wilson warns us, it will take his G.O.P. party generations of losing elections to undo the damage selling out to a traitor has done. This almost certainly means that Democrats will win a lot. The problem will be that these latter folks will be degenerating into the fascist Left at about the same speed the Orange Oligarch's Reich is degenerating into the demagogic Right—in other words, it will be a race to the bottom. Self-righteousness feeds on itself and Leftists are so positive that everything they say is perfect that they are happy to attack and assault anyone with a different viewpoint, shutting them up as if the First Amendment was nonexistent.

When the Fascistic Left and the Demagogic Right Clash, There Will Be Massive Collateral Damage and the Implementation of Marshall Law

Either one, fascism or demagogeury, murders democracy and freedom—and eventually people, and whether we die by poison or radiation won't really change the outcome. Dead is dead. The Left's political correctness insanity has declared freedom of speech extinct, but the Right won't be silenced long before striking back violently, which will radicalize both sides into a 21st century Crusades. There are 326,000,000 people in our nation, but 393,000,000 guns—more civilian firearms than people. Do the math. This won't end well.

Since our country is so polarized, violence is the logical next step, and since the alt-right and Antifa (alt-left) are already doing it, we wonder if civil war is on the horizon

Wilson says "that Trump’s election was a sign of the coming Apocalypse, soon to be followed by a rain of blood, seven years of darkness, and a plague of frogs. . . . There’s an odds-on chance that our grandchildren will hear this tale while hunched over guttering fires in the ruins of a radioactive Mad Max–style hellscape."

Science has gifted us with amazing ways to ruin the environment and amazing ways to kill each other—if left-right polarization and these two continue, life will eventually degenerate to rats fighting in a toilet

Wilson Says "I Believe in the Power of Law, Not the Power of the Mob"

Wilson says " . . . when I look at what’s become of the Republican Party, the conservative movement, and the United States, I feel like I’m visiting some dark, alternate universe. The party of Lincoln and Reagan and the movement of Burke and Buckley have been hijacked by a new strain of politics that is as dangerous as it is ludicrous: nationalist populism. I am a conservative who believes that the law and the Constitution must limit and bound the powers of the state. I believe in the power of law, not the power of the mob. I believe leaders are the servants of the people, not the contrary."

While we understand some people voting for Trump, his continued support from this small base of people, the basket of deplorables, is sad, given that Trump is a moron, and even more damning, only in it for himself. He couldn't care less about the welfare of the people that make up his base of support, let alone anyone that isn't, well, him.
