WATCH: Joe Walsh Explains Why He’s Launching Long-Shot Bid To Primary President Trump

Written by K. Walker on August 26, 2019

Walsh says that he “helped create Trump” and now he regrets it.

Joe Walsh regrets a lot of things, apparently.

He regrets his tweets, insisting that Obama was Muslim as late as 2017, and helping to “create” President Trump.

The arrogance of this guy!

Imagine trying to take credit for someone who has been a pop culture icon for nearly 40 years.

Recently, Walsh appeared on ABC’s This Week with former Clinton Spin Doctor, George Stephanopoulos to discuss his campaign against President Trump.

He’s challenging Trump because it’s the “right” thing to do.

When Stephanopoulos pointed out the massive uphill climb Walsh has in front of him in the primary thanks to Trump’s overwhelmingly high approval rating within the party, the controversial former congressman argued that conservatives should have an alternative to the president.

“I’m running because he’s unfit; somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative. The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum — he’s a child,” said Walsh, who was elected to the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave, but only served one term before becoming a conservative talk radio host.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh sent ABC News a dismissive one-word response to Walsh jumping into the race: “Whatever.”

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel told ABC News in response to Walsh’s announcement, “President Trump enjoys unprecedented support among Republicans. He has already delivered a long list of incredible accomplishments for conservatives and the country. Republicans are firmly behind the president and any effort to challenge him in a primary is bound to go absolutely nowhere.”

Walsh says that he hears from Republicans that they wish Trump wouldn’t tweet and that they’re frustrated with the pace on the conservative agenda.

Sure, the construction on the border wall has been slow, but much of that was due to RINOs in Congress and Democrats completely refusing to come to the table.

The Heritage Foundation had said back in February 2018 that Trump has accomplished more of the conservative agenda than Ronald Regan did.

That’s apparently not good enough for former Tea Party member, Joe Walsh.


Erratic, narcissist, stokes bigotry, you can’t believe a word he says, etc. is what Walsh has said about President Trump, but you could easily say the same about Joe Walsh.

Folks on Twitter reminded him of why he’s such a terrible candidate.

Some on the left are cheering Walsh on to smear Republicans.

But it seems that Walsh has been planning this for some time. Since 2015, in fact.

This guy believes that he’s a better choice than Donald J. Trump?

You’ve got to be kidding me.

Look at what Trump has endured from the Media(D) for the past few years. They’ve called him racist, a traitor who colluded with a foreign government, a bigot, a rapist, suggested that he’s sexually involved with his own daughter, and speculated on his marriage and even his mental health. Most folks would be curled up in the fetal position crying for their mommy.

Joe Walsh would likely be rocking back and forth in a catatonic state with his eyes staring blankly at the wall.

But President Trump can somehow handle the 24/7 Media(D) outrage.

Meanwhile, Joe Walsh is an absolute joke, who has said much worse than President Trump has.

He doesn’t have a chance.

Of course, he’s going to get a whole lot of airtime on the Media(D).
