If Republican political strategist Rick Wilson gets the funding he needs, a documentary known as “Everything Trump Touches Dies” will be produced.
Wilson has been a sharp critic of President Donald Trump since before he became the 2016 GOP nominee and has continued slamming Trump throughout his first year in office and to this day.
Most recently, Wilson hammered Trump for accusing Democrats of treason just because they refused to clap for him during the State of the Union Address.
“One thing we’ve learned in the last two years is that no legal, moral or cultural strictures bind Trump and that he is immune to the better angels of human nature,” Wilson wrote in a piece for The Daily Beast. “The moral event horizon around him consumes the good in anyone who becomes one of his vassals. There is no better version of Trump, ever. He can only degrade and destroy everything he touches, but today was remarkable, even for him.”
It’s an appropriate criticism, especially since the title of Wilson’s proposed documentary is “Everything Trump Touches Dies”.
Wilson started a GoFundMe account in September of last year seeking $85,000 to make the documentary a reality.
“Since the moment Donald Trump was sworn in as President, one thing has been clear; everything he touches dies,” Wilson wrote in a description of the project. “In just one year, his disastrous Presidency has already produced a record of failure, corruption, and chaos.”
“We’re here to tell the story of the first year of Donald Trump’s reckless, failed Presidency and the damage he’s done to America’s reputation, values, and institutions, and to the allies and supporters who put him in office and served in his White House,” Wilson continued.
ETTD will be a feature-length documentary film that cuts the Trump myth down to size and shows the damage he’s done to America in just one year.
ETTD is written by Republican strategist and ad-maker Rick Wilson and produced and directed by filmmaker Ben Howe, whose 2016 film The Sociopath warned America what a Trump Presidency would look like. ETTD will interview newsmakers and insiders to tell the real story as only they can.
We’ve estimated a production budget of $85,000 for a completed documentary, including all editing, shooting, footage and media rights, music, professional voiceover, travel, and legal work related to the film.
Wilson concluded his pitch by promising to air the documentary in January 2018 if they reach their donations goal. Unfortunately, the GoFundMe has only reached $58,441 of the $85,000 goal.
However, that could all change if people donate to the cause, which you can do by visiting the page. Consider it yet another way to resist Trump and his regime.
Rick Wilson is a true conservative who refused to betray his values to support Trump. This documentary could serve as an important source of information for Americans who don’t know or understand who the real Trump is and who they really put in office over a year ago.
Wilson and his team of collaborators are putting in their own time and money into this project but it’s not enough. They need help. They only need $26,559 to get this documentary into full swing, and then we’ll all have a new entry to include on our must-watch list for 2018.
Of course, if Trump watches it, prepare for a massive temper tantrum, which will be well worth the money donated to the project.
