Well this is horrifying. Joe Walsh, a Donald Trump supporter, is actually advocating violence and gun use if the Republican nominee loses the 2016 presidential election. Check out the former congressman’s disturbing tweet, here!
As much as we don’t want Donald Trump, 70, to win this election, the last thing we’re going to do is grab guns if our nightmare comes true. Unfortunately, former congressman Joe Walsh, 54, doesn’t feel the same way. Joe sent out a jaw-dropping tweet on Oct. 26, which suggests voters turn to violence if the Republican nominee loses to Hillary Clinton in Nov. The Trump supporter will be “grabbing his musket” on Nov. 9 if Hillary is victorious.
On November 8th, I'm voting for Trump.
On November 9th, if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket.

Joe then asks his 77 thousand followers if they’re in, which is spreading a very aggressive and dangerous message across a public platform. There must be people out there who see Joe as their role model, so if he’s suggesting violence, it means others may follow in his footsteps. There has been ENOUGH violence surrounding Donald’s run for presidency, as protest rallies have been popping up all over the country since 2015. Hundreds of protesters have been arrested for turning to violence to either diss or cheer on the business mogul.
The most recent outbreak against Donald went down on Hollywood Boulevard on Oct. 26. Thankfully no one was hurt, since the only thing damaged and destroyed was the candidate’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Men dressed as construction workers used a sledgehammer to dig into Donald’s star and cut his name out of the ground. It was Jamie Otis who gripped the sledgehammer in his vengeful hands, but he clearly had a crew along with him to stand watch for police and record the whole thing. With enough violence going on in the world, the last thing we need is a politician advocating it!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Joe was being sarcastic in his tweet? Did he take it too far?
