Trump challenger Joe Walsh claims that he lost his conservative radio show after launching his bid for 2020, and indicates that it could be because & # 39; most of my listeners support the president & # 39;
- Walsh dropped the bomb that he had lost his nationally syndicated radio talk show during a CNN interview on Monday night with Ancho John Berman
- The former Tea Partier announced on Sunday that he would compete against Trump for the GOP primary
- Walsh told Berman that & # 39; 80 -90 percent & # 39; of his audience supported the president and that he knew losing his show a & # 39; strong possibility & # 39; was when he ran
- Some Twitter users declared support for the Walsh campaign on Monday, but many pro and anti-Trump individuals criticized him for earlier use of racial blemish
About 24 hours after the official announcement of his bid for primary Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2020, former congressman Joe Walsh said he had lost his nationally syndicated talk show.
The right-wing fire brigade broke the news about his apparent resignation during a Monday-evening interview with CNN anchor John Berman, who was replacing Anderson Cooper.
& # 39; I just found out I've lost my national radio show, so that's gone, but I thought it could happen, John, & # 39; Walsh said to Berman.
Conservative talk radio presenter Joe Walsh announced that he would be president against Donald Trump on Sunday before he lost his job a day later
& # 39; You've lost it – why? & # 39; Berman interrupted.
& # 39; I don't know why, & # 39; Walsh replied. & # 39; I just received a message before I entered the studio. & # 39;
Walsh also noted that & # 39; 80 -90 percent & # 39; of his audience supports Trump.
& # 39; I am running for the president. I'm against this president. Most of my listeners support the president & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; It is not easy to be a conservative talk radio and to oppose this president. I knew that, John, when I announced yesterday that it could be in danger. & # 39;
& # 39; So no longer a radio program for you? & # 39; Berman asked.

& # 39; No more radio show, but that's OK, & # 39; Walsh responded. & # 39; I'm going to campaign full time … This was a hard thing to do, yes, but I think it's urgent because this president is a danger. We cannot let (Trump) choose another four years. & # 39;
Walsh has a number of supporters for his campaign on social media, but his recent accident did not earn him much sympathy from Twitter users on either side of the political pro and anti-Trump spectrum, who had problems with his earlier use of racial blemish.
After his CNN performance, Walsh tweeted that he was a candidate for & # 39; a sexual predator, a serial liar, an evil narcissist, a barrier to justice, a psychopath, a traitor to the interests of this nation, a fool, a incompetent boob, & # 39; and & # 39; a failed businessman … and I am being attacked for offensive and inappropriate tweets & # 39 ;.
Progressives accused Walsh of using the n-word and s-word to defend the Washington Redskins mascot in 2014 and for threatening former President Barack Obama after several Dallas police officers in 2016 by a supporter of Black Lives Matter were slaughtered.
& # 39; You mean tweets like this? & # 39; replied lawyer Will Chamberlain, who added screenshots of Walsh & # 39; s previous vitriol.
At least one Trump supporter despised Walsh for the same reasons, but also characterized him as an opportunist obsessed with the downing of the controversial commander-in-chief.
& # 39; You and I both know that if Trump had said the racial blemish that you did … well, you know what (regular media) would do to him. And you want a pass? & # 39; Twitter user Eugene McCarthy said in a different answer. & # 39; Because you swing mud all day, don't be shocked if someone picks up a bit of it and swings back. & # 39;
My biggest problem is not with the off-color statements (which Walsh has done) & # 39 ;, said Twitter user Laci Blake. & # 39; It is with its entire campaign focused on bashen Trump as opposed to innovative solutions, policies and economic growth …
& # 39; Trump returns results, & # 39; she added. & # 39; The only thing this guy does is b * tch! & # 39;
