Walsh tweeted out this hypocritical tweet in 2016 where he hinted at Obama hating Israel because he is secretly a Muslim:
Former Illinois congressman and radio host Joe Walsh is attracting sudden media attention as he floats a possible GOP primary challenge against President Trump — but the Tea Party-aligned Republican could struggle to be taken seriously as he confronts his own history of conspiracy theories and incendiary remarks.
Walsh penned an op-ed for The New York Times this week in which he called for Trump to face a primary challenge from the right, describing him as "a racial arsonist who encourages bigotry and xenophobia to rouse his base and advance his electoral prospects."
"What they need is somebody to stick their neck out and say, 'Enough. Enough, President Trump. We're tired of the lies. We're tired of the bullying. We're tired of the cruelty. Enough.' Somebody has to break that impasse," he said, after saying someone has to make "the moral case."
Walsh's comments mark a dramatic road to Damascus moment from a man who forged his name as a bomb-throwing, ultraconservative congressman who made racially charged and sometimes violent remarks about former President Barack Obama.
It remains unclear if Walsh thinks he should be the one to challenge Trump or if he is just doing this for publicity purposes.
And I think it explains Obama's hatred toward Israel and explains his weakening of America these past 8 years.— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) December 29, 2016
It's not complicated. /x
