Former Illinois Republican lawmaker Joe Walsh was pulled up short on Sunday morning when he swore at Donald Trump while ranting about the former president's widely-panned speech to North Carolina Republicans on Saturday night.
Speaking with hosts Kendis Gibson and Lindsey Reiser, former House member Walsh was asked about the ex-president's heavily-promoted come-back, with the ex-lawmaker responding that Trump should be shunned because he incited an insurrection that had lawmakers fleeing the Capitol last January.
That was when he called Trump a "son-of-a-b*tch" that cause Reiser to raise her eyebrows.
"It's the same old story," Walsh began. "I'm struck by this -- five months ago today we had a violent attack on our government. Five months ago today there was a violent attempt to overthrow an American election all because of -- incited by Donald Trump. Five months ago we had an insurrection in America directly incited by Donald Trump. Five months later this son of a b*tch's hold on the party is even stronger than it was then. This is his party."
"Joe, this is a family show," Reiser quickly interjected with co-host Gibson jumping in to say, "Joe, sorry, not a fan of 'Fatal Attraction' or 'Jerry Maguire,' but we'll let that go," as the abashed Walsh smiled.
