On Tuesday evening, longtime Republican political consultant Rick Wilson told MSNBC's Chris Hayes:
Donald Trump is still a very powerful force … [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 going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump, and that's a fact.
What would make MSNBC and the rest of the media ignore a direct threat against a presidential candidate?
What if the target had been Hillary Clinton, or Ben Carson on the conservative side? Would we hear ear-shattering cries from reporters accusing Wilson of being a "sexist" or "racist"?
What is it about Donald Trump that makes one of his detractors go berserk on a cable show and order a hit on the billionaire businessman?
Whether one is indifferent to, excited about, or rabidly opposed to Mr. Trump, Wilson's violent provocation exposes how low the political ruling class will descend. Wilson's words should be sufficient reason to report him to appropriate law enforcement agencies.
