Scott Walker’s campaign pit stop at a Philly cheesesteak house went awry Tuesday when he was relentlessly heckled and trolled at the restaurant and online.
At his stop at Geno’s Steaks, a restaurant known for demanding customers order in English with a sign that reads, “This is AMERICA: WHEN ORDERING PLEASE ‘SPEAK ENGLISH,” two protesters stood outside with lewd signs, according to Business Insider.
One sign read, “Scott Walker sniffs his own poop,” while the other reads, “Scott Walker lives inside my butt.”

A man can be heard telling Walker, “You suck” and another shouting the name of a rival, Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont.
These weren’t the only setbacks for the Wisconsin governor and GOP presidential hopeful at his Philly stop. Walker was also criticized for cutting the lines and ordering the traditional meal poorly.
Scott Walker cut in line at Geno’s to order a cheesesteak with American cheese and no onions. He’s not getting out of Philly alive.

@ScottWalker You get wizz or provolone, you don’t know how to order a cheese steak and you fail at pandering.

And if that wasn’t enough, Walker apparently left a mostly-uneaten sandwich at his next stop, Pat’s, along with trash, on the table.
According to Philly.com, Walker’s spokesman responded to the misguided tour faux pas, saying the owner at Geno’s ushered him to the front of the line. And Walker left his food on the table at Pat’s in order to schmooze, but took it with him when he left the restaurant.

‘I can’t analyze that’: Ex-ambassador confesses he’s unable to make sense of Trump’s Denmark and Russia rants
Former American Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, confessed Thursday that not even he could figure out what happened to make the president want to get into a verbal war with Denmark.
"What is the president talking about?" asked MSNBC host Craig Melvin.
"I can't analyze that. I honestly do not — there is no logic to what he says," McFaul said in a panel discussion. "As you said at the top, he insults or allies, right when he's about to meet with them and embraces Putin. And I want to be clear, if there were some outcome to this strategy that led to better outcomes for the American people, right -- enhanced our security, enhanced our prosperity, I could applaud it. But there is no connection to these kinds of inane statements that he makes and advancing our national security interests."
‘Hypocritical’ Republicans busted for disappearing now that Trump has exploded the deficit
In a "Reality Check" segment on CNN on Thursday morning, contributor John Avlon called out GOP fiscal hawks who have suddenly disappeared from the public square now that a Republican president has exploded the national debt.
Introduced by host John Berman, who asked, "This morning new numbers from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) confirm it: The national debt and deficit are much worse than thought. So where is the party of fiscal responsibility in times like these?" Avlon broke it down.
"While President Trump was busy proclaiming himself 'the chosen one,' you might have missed more bad news in the form of data," Avlon smirked. "Brand new CBO numbers shows the budget deficit is skyrocketing, projected to rise 25 percent over last year and heading to over $1 trillion next year. Tax revenues are $430 billion below where they were expected to be before the Trump tax cuts while spending in is in drunken sailor territory adding $1.7 trillion in the next decade."
‘Something wrong’ with Trump’s mental health — and he needs an ‘intervention’: Dem lawmaker
Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) told CNN's John Berman that President Donald Trump's mental health should be a cause of deep concern for all Americans.
In particular, Deutch pointed to Trump's string of strange statements on Wednesday, in which he favorably quoted someone who called him "The Second Coming of God" and then flat-out referred to himself as "The Chosen One."
"If you or I had an uncle who went on social media and started making claims or tweeting claims about being the 'King of Israel' and the 'Second Coming; and then went out into public and talked about being the 'Chosen One,' you know what we would do?" he asked rhetorically. "We would gather our family members and figure out how to have an intervention because there's something clearly wrong there."
