Former GOP Congressman: Republicans Will Get ‘Spanked’ If Trump Is Their Nominee

Former Republican Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh warned his party that if President Trump is the nominee in 2020, they are “going to get spanked.”

Walsh is mounting a primary challenge to Trump and the media is lapping it up as he pushes a false notion that his campaign will be the conservative alternative to the current White House occupant.

“I’m a conservative,” he said in a video of his announcement. “I’m running because Donald Trump is not who we are. He’s the worst of who we are.”

In a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” – you know, the show that all conservatives try to pitch their message – Walsh warned that if the GOP doesn’t start looking for alternatives, they’re going to get beat rather soundly.

“He’s unqualified. He’s unfit. He’s a child. He’s reckless. He’s erratic,” Walsh erratically ranted. “He’s a narcissist. If he’s our nominee in 2020, the Republican Party is going to get spanked, because young people don’t like Trump. Women don’t like Trump and people who live in the suburbs don’t like Trump.”

Trump Campaign Responds In One Word

Walsh appears to be under the misguided notion that he had some sort of effect on Trump’s stunning electoral victory in 2016.

“Correct me if I’m wrong, this man’s never apologized for anything. So here I am in front of you this morning – yes, raising my hands. I helped put Trump in the White House,” he alleged.

And you are who, exactly?

Meanwhile, as desperate as Walsh is to get attention from the President, Trump’s campaign doesn’t seem overly concerned with the primary challenge.

When told of Walsh’s effort, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh responded, “Whatever.”

Walsh’ History Of Controversy

The media and Never-Trumpers are loving them some Joe Walsh, giving him a pass on controversial statements that they would excoriate the President for if he had uttered them.

Walsh repeatedly called former president Barack Obama a Muslim and even appeared to lob a threat in his direction after the shooting of numerous police officers in Dallas in 2016.

“Watch out Obama. Watch out Black Lives Matter punks,” he wrote. “Real America is coming after you.”

Real America is what’s going to keep Trump in office in 2020 and relegate Walsh to the trash heap of Never-Trumpers that have tried and failed to take down the President.

  • Walsh, you are a RINO c sucker. You are unlikey to survive the first day of the inevitable civil war

  • This guy claims he was part of the "Tea Party" as an elected member of congress from Illinois. He seems to be a little "unstable" emotionally. Made some bad decisions while in congress and private life. Thinks Trump became Putin's puppet while he was Helsinki. He is an advocate for "choice" when it comes to abortion. He also supported Mueller's phony investigation into Rus collusion. No one knows whether he can support himself having no job at the moment. He has a late night radio show on "the Answer" from 10pm to midnight, so I guess that is some form of income. He needs to get himself financially stabilized before he can run for the presidency.
