Republican Candidate suggests almost every American is ’embarrassed or disgusted’ with Trump

American politician and Republican presidential hopeful Joe Walsh is challenging President Donald Trump in the 2020 Primary. He is doing this in the belief that most Americans are “either embarrassed or disgusted” with the current president of the United States.

In a sit down with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, the conservative radio host and former Congressman representing Illinois 8th district, stated that “It's like we live in this bizarro world where I think every American is either embarrassed or disgusted, with who this guy is personally, President Trump. I think most people are privately tired of it.”

While Walsh says they are supporting the GOP, he clarifies that this is not a way of supporting President Trump.

This is his answer when he was questioned by the host in providing evidence of the president's lack of support despite the 88% approval rating among the Republicans.

Walsh also talks about his private conversations with other people where he is told that though they cannot stand President Trump, Joe and the Democrats are socialists and he [Walsh] likes his tax cuts. “The guy's tweeting us into a recession. I could be wrong, the bet I'm making in this campaign and our slogan ‘Be Brave' which is, ‘Come on out, say publicly what you believe privately. Follow my lead. I think there's support there”, Walsh adds.

In his insistence that he is doing this in order to win, he says he's been waiting for the moment that Republicans  “step up to make the moral case against President Trump” every year. While nobody stepped up and the Republican party won't do well, then the party will not only regret it but the U.S will be in danger.

Walsh joins forces with former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, sharing the same ideas in challenging President Trump.

This comes on the heels of one of the President's inner circle turning on him. We reported earlier this week.

Trump Betrayed By Member Of His Inner Circle

A personal assistant to the President of the United States, Madeleine Westerhout, suddenly resigned from her position on Thursday after it was revealed that she leaked private information about President Donald Trump to the media.

Westerhout had been with the Trump administration since the President's inauguration.

Fox News reports on the matter:

Westerhout allegedly shared intimate details about the president's family and life during an off-the-record dinner with reporters near Bedminster, N.J., where Trump was on vacation. Her desk sat outside the Oval Office and she was often seen alongside Trump.

Politico reported that there were some White House officials who were weary of Westerhout when she began to attempt to expand her own personal role from the President's personal assistant to also include “duties associated with foreign travel and other tasks,” according to Fox.

A White House adviser told Politico that the information breach, which was a total violation of the President's trust was “the final straw.”

Fox further reports, “Westerhout, a former staffer with the Republican National Committee, joined the Trump team during the 2016 campaign.

Her departure adds to the growing list of staffers and other Trump administration officials who have come and gone.

More than 60 percent of those with the title of assistant to the president left within the first 18 months.”

Via CNN:

A former White House official told CNN that Trump was close with Westerhout — whose office was directly in front of the Oval Office — but discussing personal information about his family was a red line.
Her ouster marks yet another departure from an administration beset by a series of exits by high-ranking officials. It also underlines the President's battle against the extensive leaks out of the White House and his greater campaign against the press, and could have a chilling effect on future contacts between members of the administration and reporters.
The New York Times reported first on Westerhout's resignation. The Times cited “a source with knowledge of her departure,” reporting that the Trump administration official was considered to be a “separated employee” on Thursday.
A source with knowledge about the dinner at the Embassy Suites hotel in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, where the President reportedly visits, said that Westerhout and deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley were both at a dinner out surrounded by reporters recently.

    • If is wasn’t for PRESIDENT TRUMP getting the USA back in shape, I wonder were we would be. Obozo nearly killed this country in 8 years and if Hillary had gotten the office it would have been a third world country.

  • It’s dizzy how far off base Walsh is. Trump rightly wipped his feet on Republicans for their lazy, boozer, static inaction. Everyone worth their salt knows Obama destroyed America; Sold us out to every shithole government in the world. Ebola? Gun free zones?
    Obama tried to kill us all. The reason Trump is doing so well at MAGA is because OBAMA , in his bloody, Islamic cowardice and TREASON had hatefully taken America into the dirt; The hateful, shithole country he came from.
    Trump had a lot of room to MAGA…and the vulgar courage and balls to do it.
    Finally, we need to SUCEED. Pull barbed wire around our state borders and SUCEED. These liberal democrat socialist communists are going to win in 2020 as they gained in 2018. We need to promise a fight and SUCEED between the election and the inaguration or these liberal democrat socialist communists are going to make us slaves.

  • We have a Walsh here in Boston of the same feeble minded mentality who think they are going to be successful in impeaching, removing subborning, seditionizing, and by acts of treasonous potential under chapter 18 of the U.S. Code defining such acts and also giving the penalties for those committing them and being found guilty in a court of law by a jury of their peers after the exercise of DUE PROCESS they would deny to anyone with the temerity to oppose them. It makes no difference to THEM, that the 1st amendment guarantees the right to dissent and, for this Walsh and ours who has been slapped by the FACT his cronies have been convicted of union intimidation, though they are appealing it in forcing the hiring in 2014 of Union labor for a film project being filmed here at the time. Good Riddance~! and I hope their appeal fails as they ARE guilty and the local is KNOWN for intimidatory tactics. All such swamp slime belong in prison, never office and perhaps AG Barr ‘s efforts to discover TRUTH will eventually put then all there; HERE’S HOPING!

  • Joe Walsh is totally out of his mind as well as out of tune with the public – a total establishment politician – no brains and no concept of what is going on with the American citizens. He has no idea how many millions of us totally support OUR PRESIDENT. Just look at the huge number and amount of donations we’ve contributed from $1 up. Walsh, put a zipper in it and go away – FAAAARRRR Away!!!!

  • I don’t think Walsh has a chance, and I really don’t care for the man personally. IMO we really don’t need this distraction. Mr. Trump is doing fine. He might not be “Presidential” by some people’s standards, but he’s no career politician either. He is more in the mold our founders envisioned… a citizen who serves for a time then goes home. Sort of like Cincinnatus of ancient Rome. As far as I’m concerned, Walsh can drop dead. figuratively speaking that is. JMO

  • Joe Walsh needs to get out more, among the people who have benefitted by Trumps Administration rather than voice his useless opinion on something that he obviously didn’t fact check

  • I am one person of many that is not embarrassed by TRUMP AND HIS GOOD WORK FOR THIS COUNTRY! I am totally embarrassed by JACK ASS’S LIKE YOU who claim to be in the REPUBLICAN PARTY but in essence are nothing more than a “FILTHY DUMBORAT” in a suit! YOUR best chance of being nominated are found in HELL! YOU ARE THE TYPE THAT PERMEATES EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH and we surely don’t need YOU!

    • I concur with your assessment of our President! I couldn’t be more prouder of this man. For those who feel embarrassed, you need to get a life man! Obviously you are a bit too tight and need to loosen up a bit. The difference between our current President and all previous (-Reagan) is this President not only gives a damn about those of us who live day to day, but he also has been there too. So he knows full well what we all face. For those so called elite asses, I say, you guys need to get off your high horses and be knocked back down to where the rest of us live. “HUMBLE AMERICAN NATION”. PERIOD!

    • We don’t need to resort to name-calling, just because someone is an ignoramus with his head up the wazoo! He (Walsh) doesn’t speak for me nor does he speak for most others I know. Mr. Trump has done more for the cause of religious freedom, more for military morale, more for the rights of the unborn and more for the American economy that all the Presidents post-Reagan combined and he has my vote in 2020. Is he perfect? Of course not, no mere mortal is. Because he doesn’t kowtow to the media and “establishment” politicians, they’ll use every means at their disposal to get him out.

  • I’ve heard from a reputable source that Joe Walsh is a ‘really awful person” and I believe that. I would never vote for him and I am NOT disgusted or embarrassed by President Trump. He is working to fix our country of so many awful problems that were mostly caused by liberals and RINOs!

  • Hello, I for one, love our President. Yes, he is different in his approach to politics, He’s a business man, but seeing how this Business Man shows great success, I will look forward in every candidate for that backround versus, Class and impressive backgrounds. In researching most of the past Presidents, they have proved to be losers. Their pride and lying ways have waisted or lost much to our country. Roosevelt for one, refused to allow a boatload of Jews, escaping from the Nazi’s,thinking it might effect his election. He’s only one of them. I do see a connection between Trump and Harry Truman, also a business man. They know how it feels to keep fighting to make things better, since that is their background. I like the way he doesn’t color his ideas and make them sound different. he is truthfull and very direct. I guess a lot of people like to be lied to. I don’t.

  • Walsh, have you seen the overflow crows attending Trump’s rallies? Either you are naive or trying to fool the people who read this post and/or listen to your incorrect statements. Either way you are foolish and will not beat Trump. You cannot fool any Trump supporters!

  • I am PROUD of President Trump. He tells it like it is and he does what has to be done. It is sad to know that there are till RINOs in the Republican party. They are the lowest scum of the earth. At least a democrat will sometimes admit having communist tendencies.

  • As a lifelong Republican, I have to admit that Pres. Trump is different from any and all preceding holders of that office in my lifetime. I am So Proud of him because he acts and talks like a real human being. He’s not being programmed to blather some kind of goofy garbage just to mollify the press. I once worked in media and the attacks by them are nothing new. I hope we can get him reelected. I also hope that we can continue to get people to run for office and work in our government who are dedicated to the United States and not to their own pockets. Now, can you repeat this as written, or are you going to edit out the parts you don’t like?

  • Well, they kind of got it right. I am totally “embarrassed or disgusted” over Trump having to fight most of Congress in order to do what is right for this nation and her people. I am “embarrassed or disgusted” over the state of our nations immigration policies that Congress has and is still failing to repair, which is allowing the invasion and destruction of this nation, then fighting with Trump every step of the way in his efforts to stem the flow and save this nation. So…..hey, at least they got the emotional reaction they are imposing on “most Americans” right, just missed the bill on where we place the blame for our “embarrassed or disgusted” emotional responses.

  • Walsh has it “bass ackwards”, at least judging from the comments that I’m hearing among my friends and associates. We support Trump all the way. It’s the many gutless and afraid GOP politicians that disgust us. They would rather be pals with, and not openly confront the Democrats, than to aggressively support the President. Trump at least makes no secret of where he stands, and isn’t afraid to proclaim his intentions to stand up for America’s best interest. He may not be a silver-tongued, “tell them what they want to hear” politician, or one of the old school DC insiders, but he is just what this Country needs now. It’s Quisling RINOs like Walsh that don’t have the strength of character to admit that they’re really liberals at heart, and are the best allies that the Democrats have. Now that he’s had his “15 minutes”, he should simply fade back into the woodwork

    • I agree. Walsh you’re a rino idiot. I think President Trump is the best thing that ever happened to this Country. All you’re doing is working for the Democrats taking possible votes away from Trump.. You need to just go away..

  • If what Mr. Walsh says were actually true, then Trump would never have been elected in the first place. Trump’s behavior since taking office is the same as it was when he was a candidate running for office.. He hasn’t changed since he won the election. There’s nothing phony about him. He doesn’t put on airs. He doesn’t act holier-than-thou when dealing with his constituents. He doesn’t make promises and then renege as soon as the photo-op has concluded. He doesn’t kowtow to the left as so many RINOs and #NeverTrump-ers do. He stands up for himself instead of fading into the woodwork when unfairly vilified by the liberal progressive socialist Democrats and the MSM. He’s not into “doing business as usual.” With Trump, what you see is what you get and that’s an entirely new concept in American politics. As far as I’m concerned, he’s not just a breath of fresh in an otherwise decaying swamp–he’s a freakin’ strong breeze blowing away the stench of the DC cesspool.

  • Joe Walsh is another one of those Never Trumpers. He definitely has too much time on his hands but still he is willing to disrupt and promote cynicism into the party he pretends to believe in. I have had doctors with worse bedside manners than Trump has with his tweets. Joe needs to put on his big boy pants and step up to help this country alongside The President whom we voted in to lead our country. Too bad you didn’t run alongside non-hero John McCain when you had the chance. You two could have boosted each other’s egos.

  • I can’t imagine anybody doing a better job than President Trump! Certainly not Walsh. He’s a loser. Anybody that starts off their campaign by placing their focus on their disdain for someone else – is no leader. Trump is no more perfect than Walsh or any other person in this world. But he gets the job done…and loves this country. My vote was and will continue to be for Trump.

    He understands deceptive people and their awful business practices. He’s a bulldog and won’t take any guff. But people are choosing to focus on his “gruffness”.

    Really?

  • Mr. Walsh is obviously a politician! That is the last thing I ever want to see in the White House! Also it is obvious that Mr. Walsh does not know many really patriotic Americans, else he would not make such ridiculous statements. I am sure Hillary, Obama, and all of the Marxists are wishing he could win the nomination. What a dope!
