‘Never Trump’ Rick Wilson Says President’s Supporters ‘Will Be Going To A Lot of Funerals’

Over the weekend, “Never Trump” fanatic and Republican consultant Rick Wilson said that those who believe President Donald Trump about the coronavirus dangers “will be going to a lot of funerals.”

‘I suspect they will be going to a lot of funerals’

MSNBC’s Joy Reid said to her guest Wilson on Sunday, “I’ve had friends emailing me things they’re getting from people — family members and friends on Facebook saying it’s all a lie, they still believe it.”

“They even believe his pivot isn’t necessarily real,” Wilson continued. “But the danger is real, this keeping away from one another and doing our social distancing only works if everybody does it. If his people don’t believe it and believe the tough coverage is just out to get him rather than trying to save lives, we have a problem.”

Wilson replied, “The small number of true believer Trumpers who will not be touched by this, I suspect they will be going to a lot of funerals because they’re going to be the people who helped spread this.”

“We had a Florida legislator Mike Hill, the other day post on Facebook, on Friday afternoon I think, a bunch of guys joking they’re not going to do social distancing, they’re going to go out, blah, blah blah,” Wilson continued.

“These people who believe everything Donald Trump says spent seven weeks hearing this is a fake thing, it’s a hoax, the media is out to get him, and this is where science and the Trump reality bubble collide,” he added.

Wilson continued, “Those people that are laughing it off right now are going to be the ones who have a proximate responsibility for the fact this is going to take longer and cost more lives than it should have.”
