When public radio listens to me


I somehow missed this. Wisconsin Public Radio did an article on my radio appearance discussing Governor Scott Walker’s endorsement of Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the Republican Primary. How did that endorsement work out?

From the article:

James Wigderson, a conservative columnist for the Waukesha Freeman and contributor to Right Wisconsin, said there was no way that Walker gave any serious thought to endorsing Trump, not after the exchanges the two had early on in the race when Walker harbored his own designs on the Oval Office.

“(Walker) made it pretty clear that when he dropped out of the race (last summer) that he was definitely uncomfortable with the direction that Donald Trump was going to take the (Republican) Party,” said Wigderson.

He added, “Also, Donald Trump had specifically criticized Walker’s approach to how he had governed the state of Wisconsin.”

The criticism intensified on Tuesday as Trump campaigned in Wisconsin before the CNN town hall debate at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee. On his way to a rally in Janesville, Trump bashed Walker for failing to raise taxes and budget cuts to education. He later mocked Walker for wearing Harley-Davidson gear.

As we all know, the Trump attacks on Walker got worse which turned out to be as stupid as going on local talk radio without knowing the hosts were supporting Trump’s opponents or insulting Cruz’s wife.
