The internet was set ablaze after MSNBC gave a platform to anti-Trump strategist Rick Wilson who stated a “bullet” needed to be put in Donald Trump. @amuse posted the video of his MSNBC interview on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The account also posted this statement about Wilson’s comments: “the problem with giving him a pass because he’s not making a specific threat is that he’s inspiring unstable Democrats to carry out an assassination.”
Wilson’s full sentence was, “The donor class can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say ‘oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out’ they’re still gonna have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump. That’s a fact.”
One user commented, “I bet the FBI does not crash down his door for it.” Another user wrote, “@SecretService GO ARREST HIM FOR THREATS AGAINST A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!”
Wilson is a seasoned political strategist, ad-maker, writer, speaker and political commentator on CNN and MSNBC. He co-founded the Lincoln Project, a political action committee “whose goal is to hold accountable those who would violate their oaths to the Constitution and would place their loyalty to others before their loyalty to the American people and democracy” according to its website.
Wilson also wrote two very anti-Trump books, Everything Trump Touches Dies, and Running Against the Devil – A Plot to Save America from Trump and Democrats from Themselves.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House
Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.
Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.
Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.
National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.
In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.
Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
