Summary

Includes a brand-new afterword read by the author!

A respected, longtime 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 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.

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.

Just great, and stands the test of time quite nicely.

4 years since this was published, and Rick Wilson’s analysis still holds up incredibly well.

‘Perfect’

I liked it. Absolutely! There is everything to like. Very well written with an underlining of humour. Thank you Mr. Wilson.

Funny and pulls no punches

Very entertaining polemic about Trump and all those who enable and excuse his boorish mediocrity for their own cynical ends.
Witty, insightful and at the end; hopeful for the future

Much better than you might expect from the title

I thought this might be a Trump bandwagon book from the title, but I went with the numerous 5 star reviews and I wasn't disappointed. I really enjoyed Rick Wilson's style and delivery and found myself looking forward to the next withering take down of one of Trump's sycophants. The book is 4 years old but it is predictive of the November 2020 defeat and the disgusting scenes which followed it in the succeeding months. Every Republican who held their noses and voted for DJT, and all those who still adore him, should be forced to listen to this. Hitler and Joe McCarthy used the same divisive tactics and their supporters and enablers now look back with shame at their stupidity.

Excellent 👌

This book has aged well! it was written in 2017/2018, yet anyone who read this will not have been surprised by anything Trump has done since.
