Watch: Joe Walsh Asks Crowd If They Want 4 More Years Of Trump, He Didn't See This Coming
Former (R) Rep. Joe Walsh doesn't get a lot of attention because even the media knows this guy doesn't stand a chance. But sometimes things happen that are too funny to ignore. Walsh joined former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld at Northview Middle School in Ankeny, IA on Monday to make their case against President Donald Trump in the GOP primary.
Walsh grandstanded his hate for Trump and it's not clear if he just didn't understand the reaction of the crowd but the guy just kept going. He asked the crowd "do you want four more years of Donald Trump show" in multiple different ways. Each time the crowd cheered for Trump. Some even shouting 'Trump 2020' and '4 more years'.
Walsh just didn't get it. He didn't hear a word of it. He even asked the crowd 'how am I doing?' before asking if they want 'four more years of a president who wakes up every morning and makes every day about himself' before the crowd who cut him off in boos.

Someone must have broken it to Walsh that the crowd wasn't 'on his side' because Tuesday morning the guy took to Twitter to complain. Walsh even called the Republican party is a 'cult' and Trump can't be beaten in the Republican primaries:
"I spoke in front of 3,000 Iowa Republicans last night. It was like a MAGA rally. I told them we needed a President who doesn’t lie all the time. The crowd booed me. I told them we needed a President who wasn’t indecent & cruel. The crowd booed me," Walsh tweeted.
"Afterwards, I realized again that my Republican Party isn’t a Party, it’s a cult. I realized again that nobody can beat Trump in a Republican primary. And most importantly and most sadly, I realized again that I don’t belong in this party. I have no home in this party," he continued.
