About this ebook

From Rick Wilson—longtime Republican strategist, political commentator, Daily Beast contributor—the #1 New York Times bestseller about the disease that is destroying the conservative movement and burning down the GOP: Trumpism.

Includes an all-new chapter analyzing Trump’s impact on the 2018 elections.

In the #1 New York Times bestselling Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson delivers “a searingly honest, bitingly funny, comprehensive answer to the question we find ourselves asking most mornings: ‘What the hell is going on?’ (Chicago Tribune). The Guardian hails Everything Trump Touches Dies, saying it gives, “more unvarnished truths about Donald Trump than anyone else in the American political establishment has offered. Wilson never holds back.” Rick mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst President in American history.

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 in the 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. Publishers Weekly calls it, “a scathing, profane, unflinching, and laugh-out-loud funny rebuke of Donald Trump and his presidency.”

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 warned from the start that Trump would destroy the lives and reputations of everyone in his orbit, and Everything Trump Touches Dies is a deft chronicle the tragicomic political story of our time. From the early campaign days through the shock of election night, to the inconceivable train-wreck 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.

“Hilarious, smartly written, and usually spot-on” (Kirkus Reviews), 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.

This work of total FICTION should be noted as the perfect example of FAKE NEWS! Worst president ever? uhhh pretty sure the bafoon that's there now is a thousand times worse! Trump will go down in history as one of the BEST presidents EVER! Everything he touches goes bad?? Wow, what planet are you living on? Let me guess.. DC? New York? California? Trump actually did pretty much everything he campaigned on. Only the wall wasn't finished. It would have been if Biden didn't stop the construction when we the tax payer had already purchased the materials and shipped to the border. Now look at the clown show the border is now! man and $5 gas? I wish Trump would please come back and fix it again! Don't waste your $ on this.

Propoganda. Falsley claims trump kills everything he touches, and yet he bolstered the economy, created the lowest illegal immigration rates and reduced black employment, pushed progressive education/Justice Bills. Sorry Felix your abuse enabling for far leftists has failed. Trump will win 2020, just because someone is a republican Felix does not mean, he is republican in actual view. Nice try though, Felix hates him because trump took him out of power as felixes schemes crumbled.
