This Prominent Republican Says Donald Trump Must Be Humiliated (VIDEO)

Veteran Republican consultant Rick Wilson says it’s not enough for Democrat Hillary Clinton to win the presidency in November; she must beat Republican candidate Donald Trump “like a drum.”

In an epic column in the New York Daily News last week, Wilson seemed to be urging conservatives to vote for Clinton:

“Those of us who believe, who know, that Trump is dangerous can’t just settle for him being beaten in November. We need to ensure that he is on the business end of a decisive, humiliating defeat — so that the terribly divisive forces he has unleashed are delivered a death blow.”

If Trump is trounced, Wilson argues, that will destroy his ability to undercut the election by whining that it was rigged. He has already floated that fiction, as have his Fox News pals. A YUUGE loss would also deny Trump any role as a future movement leader:

“We can’t have four or eight or 12 or 16 years with an irresponsible almost-President gleefully undermining everything the next two or three Presidents and Congresses try to accomplish — while selling socks made in Vietnam branded with his logo, and probably reverse mortgages to boot.

He needs to be put as far into exile as is humanly possible so that the country can heal from the deep wounds he’s inflicted upon it.”

Wilson went on to say that while he hates the thought of Hillary Clinton as president, Trump is “far worse.”

“He’d be more dangerous to our safety and our republic. And since I know his loss is coming, I pray to God that it is total. You should, too.”

That call to arms was published on August 7, 2016. But the very next day, Wilson seemed to endorse Republican Evan McMullin as an independent presidential candidate.

I can understand a conservative preferring to vote for McMullin over Clinton, but there’s only person who can truly whomp Trump in November – and that’s Clinton.

And then make sure you’re registered to vote!
