Former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh: ‘I’m going to run for president’
Former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh: ‘I’m going to run for president’ Former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh: ‘I’m going to run for president’I alone can fix it that signature line from 2016 pretty much sums up, Donald Trump’s approach to the presidency, and this we keep pushing about as far as it can go with a dizzying series of impulsive moves on everything from Greenland background checks on guns, tax cuts On and off and back on again in China and the FED that sent the stock market into a tailspin and threaten the strong economy, that’s been his best selling point for re-election and, as we come on this morning, a new political threat of potential Challenge from one Of his own conservative Firebrand, Joe Walsh, he appeared on CNN this week and said this. If Republicans John stays silent in the face of this guy, I don’t think the country will ever forgive the Republican party but forget about the Publican party. If this guy gets four more years wearing real real trouble and Joe Walter Isaacson good morning, happy to be on your show announcing my candidacy, George, no surprise bodystep., Nobody in the Republican Party stepped up because I’ll tell you what everybody believes in the Republican Party. Everybody believes 2in. The president points to often is just about every poll shows more than 80 % support for the president. Among Republicans pop inner needs to be an alternative. The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum he’s he’s a child again the litany he lies. Every time he opens his mouth look at what’s happened this week. He is the president of the United States is tweeting us into recession. I can tell you, George, that most of my former colleagues up on the hill, they agree privately with everything. I’M saying hello, scared2death. This isn’t easy to do. I just sat down with you and said: I’m going to run for president I’m going to challenge this guy, I’m opening up my life to tweets and attacks everything. I’Ve said in tweeted now Trump’s going to go after bullies are going to go after you ready for it. Yes, I’m ready for most of my former colleagues believe and they want and they think they’re done with him and everything can go back to the Supreme Court. The next vacancy, if you privately pulled every member of Republican member of Congress, the president knighted states ordered private companies to not do business with China. The president of the United States that are Fed chair is as big of an enemy as Cho. Most Republican voters are tired of the drama there, tired of his BS George. I believe this looked up when you speak this. What you hear from your listeners support correct. I don’t like him, and I wish you wouldn’t tweet, and I wish you would keep in his mouth quiet, but we’re getting some good things done. This president, who said I’m going to eliminate the debt in 8 years, has increased the Death at a faster clip than Obama, but George. This is not about issues. I would not be even thinking about primary Miss president. If I was upset with his position on the debt, he said, Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country to the globe into himself, and this is what got everybody’s attention. Hashtag America deserves better hashtag. 25Th amendment. You talk about the president being on fish at the 25th Amendment be invoked, it should be looked at. George we’ve never had a situation like this. You can’t believe a word. He says. He’S nuts he’s erratic cruel, keystrokes bigotry. He he’s incompetent. He doesn’t know what he’s doing George he’s a narcissist everything he cares about. The only thing he cares about is Trump. He doesn’t give a damn about America care about you – and I talked before I came out here. He lost me for certain at Helsinki, went when the present and said I stand with guy and not my own people. That’S just loyal! That’S on American. His supporters, I think, are tired of this. Our campaign slogan, George’s, be brave, be brave, difficult thing for me to do. I’M opening up my life, but the bet that my campaign is making and I’m going to pound Trump every single day, he’s a bully and he’s a coward, and somebody has to call him out and I cannot believe nobody in our pain call him out. But the BET George of my campaign is that there are a lot of Republicans who feel like. I do they’re afraid to come forward. You said you want to make it out of the case against the present the case. The question is: are you the best messenger? So you want to make a moral case against the present here’s. What the Washington examiner conservative newspaper said, what, in response to your, can potential candidacy this week there is the matter of his history of being Trump year than Trump he’s made a living on pedaling. The same sort of demagoguery, conspiracy, mongering and right-wing Palm Spring, for which he now condemns the president response. I helped create Trump and George. That’S not an easy thing to say: look we were / went to Washington 8 years ago, wanted dad to shake Washington up. I got involved in the battles and there were plenty of times when I went beyond the policy and the idea. I said some ugly things about President Obama, that I regret and and it’s difficult, but I think I think that helped create Trump and I feel responsible for the kinds of things he was saying. You mentioned Obama. You called President Obama, Muslim and enemy a Trader, and you often spoke out on racial themes, want to show a couple of tweets that you had a right. There number one we lower the bar for Obama, he was held to a low-dose, lower standard cuz. He was black. I was just in 2017 few months after that, not just President Obama. Sarah Harris said something really dumb matter. If you’re black in a woman, you can save dumb things, lowered the bars kind of textbook racism and sexism. Well again, the beauty of what President Trump has done is George he’s made me reflect on some of the things I’ve said, disagreements get pers, we have a guy in the White House who has never apologized for anything, he’s done or said. I think it’s a weakness not to apologize I’ve. I helped. I helped create Trump there’s, no doubt about that. The person ugly politics. I regret that and I’m sorry for that, and now we’ve got a guy in the White House. George! That’S all he does understand. I walk around with this piece of paper every day. George, it’s got all of Trumps lies, can one side mostly updated and then everything that he does that’s wrong. I feel responsible for this, but I’m a conservative and I think, there’s a decent chance to present to Republican voters a conservator. What is the conservative case set aside the personal differences? You have the President Trump conservative case for why President Trump who’s going to build a wall. George, we haven’t built, built a foot of the wall. He said Mexico was going to pay for it. We haven’t, he told us trade wars were easy. Tell that to American farmers right now tell that to American consumers. President Trump said I will illuminate the debt in 8 years, he’s increased it faster than Barack Obama, a Republican Senate. He hasn’t governed as a conservative he’s not confident he doesn’t know what he’s doing but Jorge the bigger case. Is this he’s not capable of being decent? He’S cool he’s, bigoted and he’s a narcissist everything is about when you talk to your listeners on radio any chocolate in these personal terms about pet President Trump, do the excuse it. They argue with you. They say it doesn’t matter. They say Joe. The Democrats are socialists. I don’t like him, I don’t like what he says. I don’t like what he does, but the Democrats are socialists and I just I don’t think that’s good enough. I’M not doing this to say if the Republican party, I’m doing this George cuz, I think the country can survive Trump’s, 4-year tantrum, but you give this guy another four years in the white house right now he is George literally tweeting Us in Dover Hilt wiedersehn War. As you know, presidents who face a serious primary challenge, Jimmy Carter, George HW Bush from Pat Buchanan, hurt him, hurt him badly in New Hampshire. It tends to weaken them, they tend to lose. Are you prepared to take response if you do well in this, for helping elect a Democrat, the sum of your viewers and listeners will say all of socialist. It doesn’t matter, absolutely I’m going to do whatever I can. I don’t want him to win I’d rather get back to the place, George, where I’m sitting down next to a Democrat member of Congress and we’re arguing about capitalism and socialism were arguing about, but instead a child in the White House, tweets ugly insults that average Americans Every day we’re tired of that. I want to get away from that. When I get back to the place, not making much are at much of an impact. How can you run a real campaign? Where’S, the money going to come from where you going to focus we’re going to focus on. I win New Hampshire, we’re going to be on TV as what much as we can again be brave is our campaign slogan. I believe there are people out there dying to come out, stick their necks out and say publicly what they believe this guy is unfit he’s indecent he’s, setting a horrible example for millions and millions of American children everyday. I think this thing, George, will catch on like wildfire if you’re wrong. If I’m wrong the rights, because somebody had to do this again – George, we have somebody in the White House was not fit to be president.
