Just Who Is Joe Walsh, Besides An Ass on Twitter?

I know you’ve all watched and possibly sobbed through Jimmy Kimmel’s story about his infant son. In the moving monologue, Kimmel sums up his traumatic experience by saying that regardless of political affiliation, we should all want to be sure that children don’t die because of pre-existing conditions or lack of health insurance. Surely all decent people agree?

Joe Walsh instead belched “HOLD MY BEER” before tweeting these gems:

Wow. Just who is this piece of fermenting cat vomit that seems to run his mouth constantly on Twitter while praising the glory of the shiny, stupid Cheeto Dictator?

Walsh is actually a former Congressman for Illinois that was affiliated with the Tea Party. He’s now a syndicated radio show host, so whoopty shit. He’s also said idiotic things like “This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out Black Lives Matter punks. Real America is coming after you.” and “On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump. On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket. You in?”

He’s also known for being notoriously behind on child support payments. At one point, $117,000 behind on child support payments. This actually inspired a proposed bill stating that individuals owing more than $10,000 in back child support were not allowed to run for political office in the state of Illinois.

Walsh and his lawyers claimed that when he lost his Congress seat, he couldn’t pay child support and his ex-wife “should have planned better” for the eventuality. Or? Mister Personal Responsibility could have planned better since paying the child support is HIS RESPONSIBILITY TO HIS CHILDREN AND HE KNEW HE WOULDN’T BE A CONGRESSMAN FOREVER. But no, it was his ex-wife that should have planned better. Just like poor people of this country should plan better by not getting sick or being poor. You know. The usual.

The true wonderful of all of this is that, much like Mike Huckabee’s dog-killing son, Twitter never lets Walsh forget about those delinquent child support payments. Ever.

I hope I never get on the wrong side of Twitter, y’all.

The header pic is a disappointed Queen Bey, because Joe Walsh is a garbage bag full of rotting carnival food and deserves her side-eye.
