Joe Walsh has confirmed to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he plans to challenge President Trump in the primaries.
Joe Walsh, who said “On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump. On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket. You in?” to his massive Twitter following at the time, presumably advocating a civil war in response to Trump losing in 2016, claims that Trump is “completely unfit to be president.” And he, therefore, is “gonna run for president.”
On November 8th, I'm voting for Trump.
On November 9th, if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket.

To reiterate, Walsh, who has previously complained about the social stigma of saying the “n-word” in polite company, went from wanting to overthrow the government if Trump lost to believing he is “completely unfit to be president” in less than three years.
When asked about the primary challenge, Trump’s campaign responded with just one word that perfectly verbalizes how we all feel about Walsh’s campaign: “Whatever.”
This is probably the greatest example of how in tune President Trump is with the American people. In fact, this just shows how much of a unifier he is as well because both liberals and conservatives said the same thing as the president when Joe Walsh announced his candidacy, “whatever!”
