Even though failed “Republican” presidential candidate Joe Walsh was practically forced out of the 2020 race after he got completely wiped out in the Iowa Caucus, he still remains wholly unable to stop running his mouth about President Donald Trump.
Just like George Conway, Rick Wilson, Bill Kristol, Max Boot and other obsessed anti-Trump zealots whose entire lives now revolve around their hatred for America’s duly elected president, they just can’t seem to get the big fellow out of their minds.
It’s almost as if they’re in love …
Case in point:
1. Donald Trump must lose. That’s all that matters.
2. I’m not a Democrat. It’s not my job to tell Democrats who to nominate. It’s up to Democratic voters.
3. I’ve pledged to support WHOEVER the Democrats nominate.
4. If a conservative like me can pledge that, can’t everyone?

Just like Walsh’s original campaign announcement made last August, the tweet he posted Saturday appeared to be an unintentional joke.
“I’m not a Democrat,” he claimed, even as he pledged to vote for whomever (learn proper grammar, Mr. Walsh …) the Democrats nominate, even if it’s radical socialist front-runner candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“If a conservative like me can pledge that, can’t anyone?” he added, completely oblivious to the glaring dichotomy otherwise observable to the sane.
Of course, not included were the throngs of die-hard liberal Democrats — the type into political correctness, identity politics, transgender “science,” conspiracy theories, etc. — who rushed to lavish him with praise and adoration.
It brings tears to my eyes to see the transformation you have made. I’m so proud of you and you bring me hope. That YOU who voted for Trump has slowly had an evolution is encouraging.

Simply put, a vote for the GOP is a vote for fascism. A vote for Democrats is a vote for democracy. It’s all in the name.

Sadly, too many Republicans are really just glassy-eyed Trump cultists now.
“King” Trump is Putin’s USEFUL IDIOT, fomenting fear and chaos.

Thank you ????????
I’m liberal but completely w you on this. This is an existential threat to our democratic-republic. We have to vote these threats out of office. United we must be.
Once we vote out the threat we can go back to fighting about the other stuff – happily

This is what it looks like when you wake up from being in a cult like mindset. Thank you Joe for being a reasonable adult.

Some would argue there’s nothing reasonable about the radically far-left direction that Democrats have been tilting in the past few years. Ironically, even some moderate Democrats have said pretty much the same thing.
“We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration,” legendary Democrat Party strategist James Carville warned in a viral MSNBC interview earlier this month.
“They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party.”
Yet the left’s radicalism doesn’t appear to concern people like Walsh or Kristol, the latter of whom declared at the start of the month that “we are all Democrats now.”
Not presumably forever; not perhaps for a day after Nov. 3, 2020; not on every issue or in every way until then. But for the time being one has to say: We are all Democrats now.
— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) February 1, 2020
In November 2016, party affiliation was 31% Dem, 27% Republican
Today it is 27% Dem, 30% republican.
This post explains a lot of the reason. Sadly I don’t think Dems have learned anything from 2016. https://t.co/o5PqafjauA

Some among the plurality of Americans who do identify as Republican also responded to Walsh’s post. But instead of humoring his nonsensical, inconsistent ramblings, they bluntly asked, “What in the hell is wrong with you?”
It’s a fair question, is it not?
What in the hell is wrong with you? This is a serious question. There is something wrong with you. Oh, I know, where did you catch TDS?
— TJVD (@tvividy) February 16, 2020
What is wrong with you. You would rather have socialism?
— Richard Allen Wallch (@raw138710) February 16, 2020
I get the grift but you’re not a conservative. No conservative could ever vote for Bernie Sanders.

I’m sorry that DJT broke you Joe.. but damn he really messed you up badly
— The Original Straw Smuggler (@ethebuilder) February 16, 2020
“Donald Trump must lose”. That being the main part of your platform is why you got almost ZERO primary votes and why it doesn’t matter who the Dems nominate, they will lose. “We must defeat Donald Trump” is not a platform. #Tool

“I’m going to vote for Socialism because I’m a real conservative” is a stupid argument.
— Joseph Wade Miller ✝️ (@J_Wade_Miller) February 16, 2020
You’re no conservative.

“You’re no conservative,” the latter Twitter user wrote.
Walsh has always had the makings of a fine Democrat if you think about it. For instance, during his tenure in 2011 as an Illinois congressman, the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) designated him as one of the “most corrupt members of Congress.”
Sounds about Democrat!
