Republican primary challenger accuses Fox News of lying to AmericansPosted by Jimmy Cooper / November 4, 2019
Republican primary challenger Joe Walsh accused Fox News and conservative radio of lying to the American people about the impeachment investigations into Trump.
“The vast majority of the American people understand that when it comes to Ukraine, [Trump] did something wrong,’ Walsh said. “But those people who listen to the opinion shows on Fox and those people who listen to my former world, conservative talk radio, have no clue because they’re being told every day: ‘He’s done nothing wrong’ … It’s dangerous.”
This isn’t the first time Walsh took issue with his own side of the aisle, and he’s not one to mince words. Walsh was outraged when states began to cancel their presidential primaries. He called the GOP a “cult” that is “is all about washing their leaders’ feet every day.”
The GOP has responded by saying that the party of the incumbent president often cancels primaries, but Trump’s challengers are not having it. Former Rep. Joe Walsh, one of those challengers, said that “Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states. It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”
Walsh says that if the states carry through with their plans, then he will go straight to the people.
