Video: Trying To Please The Wrong People Joe Walsh Stumbles Out Of The Gate In Bid Against Trump
This sound bite from Joe Walsh today on MSNBC proves this guy is not serious about beating President Trump. Walsh is just there to create news for the left and cause chaos. Walsh is no more a political operative than Anthony Scaramucci.
Initially, Scaramucci hit the TV circuit going after the President, a couple of weeks later he shows up at former President Clinton’s birthday party, and on Saturday was seen at a Biden campaign event. Following this, the very next day Joe Walsh makes an announcement on “This Week” George Stephanopoulos (Clinton lackey) new show on ABC that he is going to run against President Trump for the Republican nomination.
Then, on Monday where does Walsh appear? If you thought Fox News or giving an interview with Breitbart trying to sway conservatives you would be wrong.
Walsh decides his first appearance in his quest to win the Republican primary will be on MSNBC where he makes a total fool of himself. Here’s a transcript of a portion of the interview:
JOHN HEILEMANN: You’ve apologized for helping to spawn Trump and for going too far. For a lot of people, the president is a stone-cold racist and so are you. I can sit here and read off tweets: “Barack Obama’s a Muslim,” “Barack Obama was born in Kenya.”
I’ve got tweets with you using the N-word, not that long ago. You can apologize for various things. Apologizing for burping at the table or using the wrong fork with your main course is different than offering some kind of a genuine recognition — not just “I said things that were offensive” — but “I’m a racist, I’ve said racist stuff.” There’s no way someone who — to many African-Americans, looks like as much as a racist as Donald Trump — has the moral standing to challenge Donald Trump.
JOE WALSH: I wouldn’t call myself a racist, but I would say, John, I’ve said racist things on Twitter. There’s no doubt about it. And an apology is not enough. When I said Barack Obama was a Muslim, that was a horrible thing to say. And I said it because I was so disgusted with Obama’s policy towards Israel, that I went a bad, ugly step. The Sandy Hook moms, I took a cheap shot against them three years ago because they were suing gun manufacturers, an issue that I disagree with. So I took a bad, cheap shot against them. I’ve done that.
But, John, again, context, I’ve probably sent out 40,000 tweets in the last six years, no excuse, you and I could sit down and find 200 to 300 that you’d say, “Walsh, what were you thinking?” All I can do is own them and explain them and apologize as sincerely as I can for those that deserve an apology.
Joe Walsh has no interest in winning the nomination that man is there to try and take votes away from President Trump. The left is using him to try and convince us Republicans hate Trump too. Seriously guys?! Democrats have been trying to do this for three years, give it up! The Democrats are pathetic they know they have no candidates that can beat him. What worse is that “Republicans” are playing along to get in the good graces of the media and the left.
