Joe Walsh is not trying to help the Democrats.
If he wanted Trump out of office, he would back the Democratic nominee.
If he wanted a left or left-leaning agenda, he would back the Democratic nominee.
He's looking ahead to the GOP after Trump.
Walsh's campaign will certainly help the Democrats.
But that isn't his purpose.
The enemy of my enemy isn't necessarily my friend.
I wrote a thread on why I think Walsh will help, called: "The GOP circular firing squad."
Yes ⤵️ Walsh & pals want to be able to say, "We stood up to Trump."
I'm happy to see them do it.
The more conservatives and former GOP members who attack Trump, the more likely Trump is to lose his soft support.
We need Trump out.
