GOP strategist Rick Wilson didn’t hold back in an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to publicize a new book: Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.
MSNBC bleeped Wilson out after he went off about the “courage deficit” in the Republican Party when it comes to Trump.
Said Wilson: “Cocaine’s a hell of a drug. They love the fact that Donald Trump finally gives them this sort of id of the Republican Party. They’re finally given permission to say the ugly things they kind of wanted in their secret hearts for a long time, and the monster got out of its cage in terms of a lot of the populist messaging that worked to motivate Republican primary voters for a long time.”
Wilson then got bleeped for seven seconds by MSNBC censors.
“Are you saying that on TV? Wow. Okay, then,” said Mika Brzezinski.
I said "Washington is full of profiles in chickenshit. You and I both get calls from members of Congress who say I can't stand this asshole"
