For some reason, I saw this. Bill Mahrer was on my television and I saw this. I even ran the TV back to watch Wilson say it again. Insisted that Lisa stop doing what she was doing so she could witness the sheer beauty of this moment.
Watching Tomi Lahren spend the entire segment trying to bait someone into an argument of one of her pet dogwhistle issues AND seeing everyone ignore her every time would have been worth suffering through Bill Mahrer.
But Rick Wilson’s jumping in – excusing himself, and jumping in – to point out the lunacy of Lahren’s statement? A statement so insane he could only call it “F*cking crazy”?
That made it even worth having to suffer Michael Eric Dyson’s bad Jesse Jackson impersonation.
Very much worth it.
