Great, a choice between two evils.

Conservative firebrand former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh announced Sunday in an exclusive interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” that he’s launching a long-shot Republican presidential primary challenge against President Donald Trump.

“I’m going to run for president,” Walsh told Stephanopoulos on Sunday in an exclusive interview.

The former Illinois congressman-turned-radio host was once a fervent Trump supporter who’s become a fierce critic of the president. Walsh is just the second Republican to jump into the primary behind former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who announced back in April but has yet to gain serious traction.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told ABC News a dismissive one-word response to Walsh jumping into the race: “Whatever.”

I think that “whatever” response is going to be echoed by just about everybody who hears about this campaign. 

Joe Walsh is a terrible person in his own right who attacked President Obama as a Muslim, challenged his birth certificate, used racials epithets on his Twitter account, and was a member in good standing with the Tea Party movement which caused much of the damage to the Republican party that allowed a Donald Trup to win its presidential nomination in the first place.

However if his campaign is going to focus on attacking and undermining Trump’s campaign in the primaries, I welcome his participation.
