Scott Walker Humiliates Himself On The World Stage By Dodging A Question About Evolution

Published by

Scott Walker’s 2016 presidential hopes were dealt another blow when the Wisconsin Republican refused to answer a BBC reporter’s question about evolution while addressing a think tank in London.

Walker was asked if he was comfortable with, and believed in evolution. It was a simple question that made the Wisconsin governor look like a fool, “For me, I’m going to punt on that one as well. That’s question a politician shouldn’t be involved in.”

Moderator Justin Webb of BBC Radio4 took Walker to task, “That is a question any British politician right or left wing would laugh and say, “Of course, evolution’s true.”

Gov. Walker replied by digging himself in deeper, “To me, I’m here to talk about trade, not to pontificate about other issues. I love the evolution of trade in Wisconsin. It’s going really well, and I’d like to see it even bigger.”

Walker’s campaign later put out a statement stating that their candidate does not believe in evolution.

The evolution question pratfall was Scott Walker’s second major stumble in less than two weeks. Earlier this month, Walker fell flat on his face when asked about foreign policy

during an ABC News interview. Scott Walker’s stumbles highlight one of the major problems facing the Republican Party in 2016. Republicans want to run a foreign policy campaign against Hillary Clinton, but none of their candidates can get through basic foreign visits and foreign policy questions.

Republican voters love Scott Walker because he is a union busting college dropout who blindly subscribes to the Koch economic agenda. What Scott Walker is quickly proving himself not to be is an electable presidential candidate.

Gov. Walker is trying to take the disaster that he has inflicted upon Wisconsin global, and the international community is not impressed. Scott Walker is loved by the Republican base, but he would eaten alive by Hillary Clinton in a general election campaign.
