Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), the conservative talk-show host and prominent "tea party" figure, on Wednesday called President Donald Trump an "unfit conman" and a "racial arsonist" and urged a primary challenge for the Republican nomination next year. Walsh also apologized both for his own heated rhetoric over the years and for helping to elect Trump in 2016. In the [New York] Times, he argued that Trump isn't a conservative and that he's vulnerable not just because he's unfit for office but because of his poor record. "He's reckless on fiscal issues; he's incompetent on the border; he's clueless on trade; he misunderstands executive power; and he subverts the rule of law," Walsh wrote. "It's his poor record that makes him most worthy of a primary challenge." -- HuffPost

Funny how forgetful you righties are. I remember him and I think a lot more of him now that he admitted that his style of politics was destructive to the nation, wish Trump could have such an epiphany.

Woke from his coma, Walsh finds himself wiping his feet on a foreign rug.

No one helped Trump win more than the democrats. It should have been a no brainer to beat that clown. But they decided to put up Hillary against him rather than a good candidate without a ton of baggage. The fact that Trump is president rests squarely on the shoulders of the Democrats, not Walsh or anyone else.

"unfit conman" and a "racial arsonist"

Sad that trolls like Dulli, Sheepi, and Goati can't see it. They'd prefer to blame lamely Dems in general than admit the obvious truth about Trump.

Joe Walsh finally gets it, even out there on the right wing.

Walsh says our country could not withstand four "more" years of Trump. We haven't withstood the first four yet, just two and a half. I'm worried about the next 18 months. And if Trump does lose, I am particularly concerned about the period Nov. 11, 2020 to Jan. 20, 2021.

Another Tea Party whiner who saw their power evaporate when Obama left office and we installed a lunatic. Walsh and his Tea Party Dittoheads can all take a long walk on a short pier...

Another of the "Lee Atwater blindness" sufferers.

Only when not part of it does he come to his senses.

Thx for the memories.

First of all, if you don't have a valid point, dont' screech "troll".

Secondly, you want the "obvious truth about Trump"? OK, here it is. He beat the loser the Dems put up against him. I stick by my point -- it is the Democrat's fault Trump is president. A guy like Trump should have been a no brainer to beat.

So there's your "obvious truth", corky.
