#NeverTrumper Rick Wilson: I Like My Fascists the Old Fashioned Way, Dead and Hanging from Lamp Posts
Outspoken #NeverTrumper and columnist for the Daily Beast Rick Wilson declared his support for lynching fascists following the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Wilson claims President Trump has “an itchy Twitter finger”, though he shouldn’t be one to talk. Wilson’s twitter resume is comprised of nasty messages for Trump supporters and inappropriate sexual remarks towards Ann Coulter.

Additionally, in 2015 Wilson encouraged establishment Republican donors to “go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump.” Not to mention tweeting disgusting remarks towards Ann Coulter:
