A respected, long-time 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 trainwreck 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.


  • A GOP Conservative with Balls

    By Scoongile
    Great Book , especially coming from a GOP Conservative . Honest assessment both for the GOP and the Democrats. Remember what Trump previously said, Lie enough and people will believe it. The American voter and non voter have become this Country’s worst nightmare
  • Great book!!!

    Trump is a joke! I’m a republican and I would take Obama or Bill Clinton over this moron any day. He’s lied more than all the other presidents put together. Maybe he taught that at fraudulent Trump University. Lol All the other countries are laughing at this nut. 🤦🏻‍♂️
  • Dead On Correct

    By AJF in Pittsburgh
    Have looked forward to this and it doesn’t disappoint. The Trump apologists in these reviews, and Republicans generally, are seriously deluded if they think any of this is sustainable. There is no lasting majority for Trumpism, and the long-term damage to the Republican Party will be devastating. He’s been an accelerant for stoking rage among the working class and racists, and history will condemn those who have been complicit.
  • Check out the economic numbers...

    By Dnev1551
    How can you say that when he has record low unemployment, especially of blacks, latinos, and the country as a whole. “He is unstable to run the country” yet he has the best economy in decades..... and only two years in. 6 more years, our kids are in good hands!
  • Pure garbage.

    By Ronin Acreage
    Don't waste your time or money on this garbage. Wilson is a disgruntled loser and Never Trumper since day one. He's been wrong about politics for so long he's a joke.
  • Trump is the Grendel

    By chombis1
    Donald Trump is like the monster Grendel in Beowulf. He was spawned and thrust into the national spotlight by the Republican political machine. Its first victims were the Republican Party, and the Conservative movement. Rick Wilson is a powerful voice of reason within that Republican political machine. He is part of the right conservatives that are trying to put the evil genie back in the bottle. This book is a must read for true conservatives and true democrats alike. It is a must read for all decent Americans. The time has come for all good men and women to unite and end this terrifying chapter of American politics.
  • Brilliant author!

    The title is correct. Wilson is a clear headed conservative patriot. Trump is an American abomination
