It's possible that your reaction blaming President Obama for slain police officers may not be the best idea, as a general rule.
Former Illinois Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh came under fire Thursday night for an inflammatory tweet that included the phrase "watch out Obama" after multiple Dallas police officers were shot, four fatally, by two snipers at the end of a protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings.
"3 Dallas Cops killed, 7 wounded," Walsh posted. "This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."
Then he doubles down:
The tweet was deleted, but not before a firestorm erupted on the platform that included singer John Legend calling for Walsh to be arrested.
"Joe Walsh needs to be arrested for threatening our President," Legend tweeted.
Walsh later tweeted that he "wasn't calling for violence, against Obama or anyone."
"Obama's words & BLM's deeds have gotten cops killed," he wrote. "Time for us to defend our cops."
Remember, this man was an elected member of Congress saying this, telling the President and black people to watch out because "real America" is coming for them.
So who's going to take Walsh up on his offer?
