‘He blocked me’: Fmr. GOP Rep Joe Walsh can’t get Trump to see his raging Twitter rant about Russia

Powered by Topple

Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh may be accused of many things, but being a hypocrite is not likely to be among them.

Now a radio talk show host, the outspoken Republican has long been a fierce critic of President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party, often using militant language that leaves the left in an uproar for taking his words literally.

A recent example of this is what he told CNN’s Jake Tapper prior to the election: “On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump. On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket.”

While admittedly a Donald Trump supporter, that didn’t stop Walsh from expressing outrage over the possibility that Russia may have interfered with our elections.

…AND expect Trump to echo calls for an official investigation.

Walsh went on an exhaustive rant on Twitter Saturday, denouncing Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 election and demanding that the Republican-led Congress get involved:

Walsh even went so far as to align himself with New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer:

Walsh turned the heat up on Trump over remarks made about the CIA and said the president-elect should call for an investigation — President Obama ordered a probe Friday.

And while he ended his rant with a passionate denunciation of the GOP, there has been no evidence presented to confirm that Russia had any impact on the election… other than media reports:

Interestingly, when asked by a social media user why he didn’t tell Donald Trump these things himself, Walsh responded that Trump “blocked me on Twitter.”

Ya’ think?
