During an appearance on MSNBC's "The Katie Phang Show," former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) suggested that the televised Jan 6th hearings are having a devastating impact on Donald Trump's political future.

Speaking with host Phang, the former lawmaker -- who has become a major and vocal critic of the former president -- cut right to the chase by stating Trump is "screwed."

"Will Trump be screwed by the very thing he has always been obsessed with: TV ratings and millions of eyes watching what is going on on TV?" host Phang prompted.

"Katie, I do," he replied. "In that Trump could be screwed. I don't think the Republican Party will be screwed, this November, for these hearings."

"Look, I still hear from hundreds of Trump supporters and Republican voters every day and, Katie, they are extra pissed-off and angry about what they are hearing about at these hearings. I don't know that they are watching the hearings, but even then, they are hearing about the damaging information, about what Trump did."

"So if they are impacted, I mean, the hard-core Trump base is impacted, about what is being learned at these hearings, I think that is going to hurt Trump in 2024. I do not think it's going to be an issue of Democrat versus Republican in '22," he added.
