Republican Strategist: Trump Like ‘A Hangover And Then Herpes’ For GOP
Republican strategist Rick Wilson, who works for a pro-Marco Rubio superPAC said Donald Trump’s candidacy is like “a hangover and then herpes” for his party.
“It’s like the classic consequences of bad planning and one night stands,” Wilson said, suggesting the Republican party can expect to pay “for a long time” if Trump continues his divisive rhetoric.
“He’s the guy you want to go out and drink tequila shots with all night long and then you wake up the next day and say, ‘Oh man, that hurt. What the hell,’” Wilson said.
Wilson, who is in talks with other members of the Republican party to formulate a plan ahead of next year’s primary elections, said establishment leaders are “certainly all looking at the existential risk of Donald Trump destroying the Republican Party.”
