Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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, 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 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 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 06, 2018 – 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. With the insight of an insider turned outsider in his own party, Wilson goes after every manifestation of Trumpism: the overt racism, especially the message surrounding "the Wall" (which Wilson dubs "Douche-henge"); Breitbart, Fox News, and the "diseased slurry of fake news, post-truth Trumpism, and Russkie agitprop" in the conservative media; the logic-defying embrace by Evangelical Christians of Trump ("a walking, talking, porn-star-screwing offense to their every belief"); and of course Trump's ego-driven, "clownish" leadership. "Donald Trump is like a monster from the laboratory of a jackass mad scientist, built to represent the perfect antithesis of Washington's example," Wilson writes. Beyond the barbs, Wilson delivers an urgent message to traditional conservatives: take back the Republican party before it's too late. "The old, abandoned face of politics that emphasized smarts, seriousness, and stature needs a comeback over the Trumpian politics-as-professional-wrestling model," he writes. Trump supporters may dismiss Wilson's vitriol as the cathartic screed of a "Never Trump" Republican dinosaur, but those who share his views will find this rewarding.

Customer Reviews

Balanced

Fantastic writing. Even handed, and educational for me, a Liberal. Put everything regarding Trump into perspective, and how conservative media created him, starting in 2010. Funny, (Usay and Qursay...I love it), and a thoroughly good read. Every PolySci class in college should read this book!

ETTD

I loved reading ETTD. Consider the context in light of what I believe.

I’m a Baby Boomer. I believe that young people are right. Put our tax dollars to work. Enforce prison reform. Create a just immigration system. Tell the military to reduce its ranks and modernize its approach. Tax the rich at an increasing percent level for each additional $100,000 they make, support schools, forgive student debt, make public college education free again, make racism illegal, separate church and state, invest in clean energy jobs, fix our crumbling infrastructure, support refugees, protect social security, end Citizens United, support a free press, eliminate the electoral college, resurrect the Equal Rights Amendment, enforce reproductive rights, increase the minimum wage substantially, support voting rights, hold Big Pharma and Wall Street accountable for their practices and, by all means, provide Medicare for All.

I feel less disoriented after reading this book.

I love Rick Wilson. He pulls no punches, and he's hilarious, but also serious about the dire situation our country is in. He understands and explains how we got from conservative intellectuals like William Buckley to the divisive, spineless, amoral, know nothing, sell-outs and traitors who control the Republican Party today.
