NeverTrumper Rick Wilson, who is often a guest commentator on CNN and MSNBC, seemed to wish the coronavirus on First Lady Melania Trump Wednesday.

The “#BeInfected” remark was apparently a mocking reference to Melania Trump’s #BeBest hashtag, as Wilson later claimed. The White House announced Wednesday that the first lady would be joining members of the coronavirus task force to produce some public service announcements on the pandemic — informing Americans on the best ways to avoid contracting the virus. Wilson was seemingly referencing that decision.

Republican Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar told the pundit, “Delete this, Americans are dying.”

Robby Starbuck called Wilson “a really disgusting person” who should “start going by the name Dick.”

“You’ll never let go of your bitterness that Trump won,” he continued.

Reporter Joe Concha expressed his disgust, calling Wilson’s tweeting “the most insidious & hateful rhetoric of anyone who exists in political punditry.”

After a barrage of criticism, Wilson claimed it was all a joke. “ANYONE who thought I was wishing COVID on Melania is fu**wit.”

Wilson most recently enraged Trump supporters when he denigrated them on a panel discussion with CNN host Don Lemon.

Wilson began by saying “Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,” which caused Lemon to erupt in laughter.

Faking a southern accent, Wilson condemned “the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump, the ones that think that Donald Trump’s the smart one, and there all y’all, y’all elitists are duuuumb.”
