Walsh: Obama Held to Lower Standard Because He’s Black

Short-term congressman turned right wing radio talk show host Joe Walsh went on CNN and said that President Barack Obama was held to a lower standard than other presidents because he’s black. And this coming from a guy who supports Donald Trump.

Join me in the real world for a moment, Joe. In the real world, you know who is really held to a lower standard than any president in history? Donald Trump. And it’s entirely because his followers simply don’t care what he says or does. Any other presidential candidate who admitted on tape to grabbing women by their pussies would be dead in the water politically from that moment on. Not Donald Trump. Any other president who answered questions like a junior high school student trying to fudge an answer on a test he didn’t study for would get drubbed in any election. Not Donald Trump.

Any other candidate who had demonstrated such a staggering ignorance on virtually every subject would be widely viewed as totally unqualified for office. Not Donald Trump. Any candidate who lied as often and as brazenly as he does, lying about things he knows we have on video, often within hours of saying it, would be viewed as totally lacking in credibility. Doesn’t seem to phase Trump’s followers one bit. There’s the real lower standard. In a rational world, Donald Trump couldn’t get elected to lead a fraternity full of racist, sexist douchebags like him.
