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.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
