‘Republicans Are Going To Get Wiped Out In 2020’: Ex-GOP Lawmaker Bashes His Former Party For Stooping To Trump’s Level

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh appeared on CNN on Thursday where he bashed Donald Trump and members of his former party for failing to denounce the racism seen at Trump rallies.

Walsh told CNN’s Brianna Keilar that Trump voters who chanted “send her back” to Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are full of “hatred.”

“It’s ugly, it’s racist, it’s anti-American, and it ought to be denounced,” Walsh said. “And Brianna, it should have been denounced by the president last night. But he’s not capable of it.

According to Walsh, Republican lawmakers have privately told him that they “can’t stand what the president has unleashed, this big bowl of ugly.”

But when it comes to condemning Trump in a public venue, Republicans are quieter than a mime. They rather eat their own words than stand up to the bigotry. And this is going to cost them the 2020 elections, according to Walsh.

“I had to crack up, your congressional correspondent earlier, who said that privately these Republicans are uncomfortable with what the president did last night, and uncomfortable with the chant privately, bull crap on being privately uncomfortable,” Walsh added. “I’m sick of the private stuff.”

“These Republicans have got to get the courage to stand up publicly and denounce this,” he insisted. “If my former colleagues, Brianna — I get worked up about this — if they don’t strongly, publicly denounce this un-American crap, Republicans are going to get wiped out in 2020.”
