Joe Walsh: Trump Is ‘Acting Like a Third Grader’
Former Congressman and conservative radio host Joe Walsh — the same guy who threatened to take up arms if Donald Trump lost the election — says that the President-elect is acting like an “almost treasonous” child.
Walsh is far from being in the middle of the political spectrum. In fact, he is known for commentary that long foreshadowed the rise of Trumpism — having been suspended for using the n-word on air — ripped the President-elect for his response to reports by the CIA that not only did Russia attempt to meddle in the U.S. presidential election, but that it tried to tilt it in favor of Trump.
“There’s evidence Russia messed around with our election, but cuz our guy won, people on my side are ok with that? That’s so f—ing wrong,” Walsh tweeted.

He later tweeted at the President-elect regarding his attacks and dismissive response against the CIA and the U.S. intelligence agencies.
The President-elect and his transition team dismissed the findings on Friday evening in a rather shocking manner strongly implying that the Russia is more credible than the U.S. intelligence community. “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again,’” the statement read.
“So wait…the CIA says Russia messed with our election to help Trump win and Trump attacks…the CIA? Not Russia? He goes after the CIA?” Walsh continued over the weekend. He called House Speaker Paul Ryan a “coward” for not immediately backing an investigation of the hacks; he said other Republicans who don’t join the anti-Russia fight “should resign.”
Walsh then continued his tirade on Monday as he appeared on CNN.
