Former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, once considered a tea party favorite before he lost his seat in Illinois after one term, is talking about a presidential run to challenge Donald Trump’s nomination as the GOP’s contender in 2020.
“If I’m to do it, it’s going to happen soon,” Walsh told Politico. “I’ve been really surprised by the amount of anxiousness from people across the spectrum who want this president to have a challenge, because there’s just a real concern that he’s absolutely unfit.”
However, before Walsh re-invented himself as a never Trumper to maintain relevance, he actually threatened violent revolution if Trump lost to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump.

He confirmed that he was dead serious about his call for revolution months later.
.@brianklaas I meant it literally.

Walsh has already started his groveling tour in the fake news media, hoping to erase his past so he can rally Never Trumpers behind his potential sabotage campaign.
Why did I write this piece? Two reasons: First, I wanted to make clear that Donald Trump is unfit to be President, and he MUST be challenged in the Republican primary.
And second, I wanted to apologize for the role I played in helping to put an unfit con man in the White House. https://t.co/BzXJD4AfOf

However, Walsh may be unable to apologize away the racial slurs that he used in reference to Obama while he was serving in the White House. Despite frequently criticizing President Trump for his incendiary rhetoric, Walsh used the “n-word” and other racist insults in several tweets.
So if “Redskins” is so racist, why do even liberals say & print the term. We’d never use nigger, spick, honky, or cracker in a tweet. Right?

Obama didn’t use the n-word. He said the word nigger to make a point about racism. And that’s perfectly fine to do. http://t.co/4H6tl0rXt1

KY school apologizes for assignment asking students to discuss the word “nigger.”
Huh? Can’t even discuss the word? https://t.co/QhdeyNKsCQ

Walsh was also embarrassed by left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who tricked the former lawmaker to endorse allowing toddlers to shoot guns in a skit designed to make Republicans look foolish.
He tried to explain away his blunder with some posts on social media, explaining that he would pretty much read anything if it was put in front of him on a teleprompter.
I was reading from a TelePrompTer, promoting various Israeli innovation. I read a story about a child in Israel who stopped a terrorist. I then read about Israel training children on firearms. I thought it was extreme, but often Israel must be extreme. The story was a lie. 1) https://t.co/tO0B333g79

I was reading about what Israel does. This was after being flown out to DC to get a friend of Israel award, a 45 min made up interview about my support for Israel. Wedged in there was this sliver about kids and guns. And no, I don’t believe we should train & arm kindergarteners.

If Walsh does attempt to challenge the President for the Republican nomination in 2020, it doesn’t appear that Trump has anything to worry about.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”
Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.
Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”
Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.
Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.
Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.
“I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.”
Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.
Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.”

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.
Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
