Former GOP Congressman Joe Walsh recently announced his intent to run as a Republican against President Trump in the 2020 Republican primary. In addition to a lack of self-control, the former congressman has flip-flopped more than once about his support for President Trump.
Breitbart’s Brandon Darby released an embarrassing 2011 video of Joe Walsh, doing his best impression of an unhinged Beto O’Rourke. Darby tweeted, “This Joe Walsh guy seems nice.”
In the video, Walsh can be seen going off on people sitting in a bar during a public townhall discussion at Uno Bar and Grill in Gurnee, Illinois. When a man at the townhall brought up the topic of banks and the collapse of the economy, Congressman Joe Walsh flipped out.
Walsh gets in the face of the woman standing at the bar. For her part, she remains amazingly calm, as the woman seated at the bar tells Walsh, “You don’t have to scream at me!” Walsh continues to scream at her, saying, “no!”
Walsh continues with his embarrassing and unhinged rant, screaming a man who begins to challenge him on his views to “be quiet for a minute, or I’m gonna ask you to leave!”

Yesterday, Dinesh D’Souza tweeted about Joe Walsh losing his talk show radio show gig, saying “even his own radio audience can’t stand him,” asking, “So what’s his voter base? CNN and MSNBC hosts?”
In short even his own radio audience can’t stand him. So what’s his voter base? CNN and MSNBC hosts? https://t.co/QNFFCvBb0R

Biz Pac Review reported about a recent appearance on MSNBC, highlighting Walsh’s flip flops when it comes to his support for Trump. Early on, the unhinged, one-term congressman praised Trump, but now, after three wildly successful years as President of the United States, Walsh is trashing him.
Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday, Walsh was grilled by anchor Kendis Gibson for his past support of Trump.
Gibson highlighted a 2016 tweet from Walsh that read: “November 8 I’m voting for Trump. On November 9, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket. You in?”
“Look, I didn’t love Trump,” Walsh said when asked about his past support. “I didn’t like him, he wasn’t Hillary [Clinton] so it was a pretty easy vote.”
As he tried to further explain his actions, Gibson interjected, “You could have quietly voted for him. That sounds like supporting.”
“I had a conservative talk radio show. I can’t be quiet about anything,” Walsh replied. “He wasn’t Hillary and when he first got elected, I tried to do the whole good Trump/bad Trump thing. I’d praise him when he did something I liked. I would criticize him when he did something when I didn’t. It became clear to me that the man basically lies every time he opens his mouth.”
UPDATE: Walsh has now been fired from his position as a talk show radio host.
He owned up to his past rhetoric, including calling Barack Obama a Muslim, saying he let his policy disagreements with Obama “get the better of me and I got personal.”
Desperate to get the focus off himself, he launched into a tirade against Trump, even calling him a “sexual predator,” but Gibson was zeroed in, getting Walsh to admit on-air that he apologized for once using the n-word.
“Is it too late to put the toothpaste back in the tube?” the MSNBC host asked.
Almost comically, Walsh insisted that it’s not too late, assuring Gibson that out of thousands of tweets he has sent, there’s only “200 to 300” potentially offensive ones out there.
