Trump's Former Primary Opponent Just Challenged Conservatives to Support the Democratic Nominee, Whoever It Is

He was a prominent figure of the Tea Party, he pushed conspiracy theories that former President Barack Obama was from Kenya, and even appeared to promote violent insurrection should then-candidate Donald Trump lose the 2016 presidential race.
Walsh is by no means a moderate, yet he's one of the few Republicans who has publicly and loudly called Trump out over the past couple of years.
He even issued an apology for helping elect Trump last year.

President Donald Trump has made over 12,000 "false statements" since his inauguration in 2017, according to the Washington Post. The President's penchant for lying is well-known to the American public—except to those who won't acknowledge it.
Fox Business host Stuart Varney seems to be one of those people.
President Donald Trump's base is characterized by many for its unconditional loyalty. Whether the president's blatantly lying or a long-held norm is being shattered, it's rare to see any of Trump's supporters waver in their dedication to him.
But it's not unheard of for his devotees to snap out of it, as former Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) has demonstrated.
