To Americans who didn't vote for President Trump, life in Trumplandia can often feel like being a survivor in a zombie flick. It's as if we're hiding in a boarded-up house, clinging to one another, as the malevolently somnambulant hordes of MAGAs grumble and lurch toward us, bringing with them certain death and destruction. If, like me, you relate to this feeling, think of Rick Wilson as the bad-ass hombre who shows up in the middle of the second act, ready to teach us how to fight back.

Wilson is a national Republican political strategist and media consultant who has worked for gubernatorial and senatorial campaigns, super PACs, and corporations. In his new, deliciously vicious book, Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever (ETTD), Wilson critiques Trump and his enablers from the right. His raw-brawling style and deftly articulated rage at "a certain frequent tweeter with an exotic dead-animal hairstyle and a notoriously short temper" have made Wilson an unexpected darling of the left, and a kind of Cassandra in steel-toed boots for his own party.
