Republicans must answer for 'coward' Trump's attacks on doctors: Ex-tea party congressman

On Monday, following President Donald Trump's promotion of a tweet from a former game show host accusing doctors of lying about COVID-19, former Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) demanded Republicans on Capitol Hill should answer for the president's behavior.

Walsh, a former lawmaker elected during the 2010 tea party wave, has become one of the most vocal critics of the president from the right, briefly running a primary challenge against Trump and urging fellow Republicans to abandon the party until its support of Trump crumbles.
