Rick Wilson Eviscerated After Calling Out 2012 Domino’s Tweet

When people play the “let’s dig up old tweets” game, it typically doesn’t end well. Just ask Rick Wilson.

The former GOP strategist and Lincoln Project advisor gaslighted Domino’s on Tuesday for an innocent reply tweet to current White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany that was sent on November 8, 2012. McEnany was a 24-year-old producer for the “Mike Huckabee Show” on Fox News when she composed the tweet.

After Wilson tweeted that Domino’s had “killed” their brand, Domino’s hit back.

“It’s unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political,” the multinational pizza chain replied. “Guess that’s 2020 for ya.”

Wilson’s attempt to “cancel” Domino’s backfired in epic proportions. Social media users dug up old tweets and Instagram posts involving Wilson like he had done to Domino’s.

In 2014, his wife allegedly posted an Instagram photo on a boat that contained a cooler with a Confederate flag and read “The South Will Rise Again.” Wilson did not respond to this reporter for comment.

Wilson is the same guy who mocked Southerners on CNN earlier this year.

But it didn’t stop there. Here are some more posts people dug up.

Wilson ignored the backlash and continued to tweet on Tuesday and Wednesday.

How mature for a 56-year-old.

Biden Energy Secretary Subject of Ethics Complaint for Promoting Electric Company She Held $1.6 Million in Stock

President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has received an ethics complaint for promoting an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held over a million dollars of stock in. She did so all while being a part of the executive branch in Biden’s administration.

Breitbart reports Granholm, “who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.”

Critics say Granholm has promoted Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. Additionally, they say Granholm’s promotion of Proterra has increased its visibility and therefore the value of her stock before she was required to sell her shares due to ethics rules.

As of Monday, the company had a market cap of $2.6 billion. Granholm also promoted Burlingame, a California electric vehicle company, at the same time “Democrats in Congress were crafting – and ultimately passing – Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which dramatically increases Granholm’s authority as energy secretary to advance private sector companies in the transition to an electric vehicle-based transportation infrastructure” reports Breitbart.

The infrastructure package “grants as much as $174 billion to green vehicles and $456 billion to zero-emission buses to ‘replace 50,000 diesel transit vehicles and electrify at least 20 percent of our yellow school bus fleet’ and ‘to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.”

Breitbart reports:

Granholm’s involvement with Proterra started in March of 2017 when the company announced she would be joining its board ostensibly due to her experience with the automotive sector when she served as Michigan’s governor from 2003 to 2011. Proterra hoped to use Granholm’s “track record for producing a high-quality clean energy and transportation workforce in the Midwest” to launch the company into the “next phase of strategic growth and national deployment,” its press release explained. During her time on the board, Granholm supplemented her considerable income by simultaneously serving on the boards and consulting for various left-wing organizations as well, such as American Bridge PAC and Media Matters.
