Walker: Trump Attacking Me Was Like Going After Brett Favre

The awful Governor of Wisconsin compares attacks against him by Donald Trump to attacking the Hall-of-Famer quarterback of the Packers.

More than a little nauseating to hear him pump himself up and his odious practices after Cruz defeated Trump in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker took to Charlie Sykes' Milwaukee radio show on Wednesday morning to revel in the big victory of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in his state. He also jabbed at Donald Trump for insulting him, comparing it to going after the Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who spent the majority of his two decades in the NFL under center for the Green Bay Packers.

The governor was asked by the conservative radio host, a Cruz supporter who caught Trump unawares in an interview last week, about what Sykes called Trump’s “bizarre decision that he was going to attack you.” Sykes asked whether that hurt the Manhattan businessman.

“There’s no doubt about it,” Walker responded. “It would be like coming into Lambeau Field and taking a whack at not only Aaron Rodgers…but at someone like Brett Favre as much as some of us were frustrated when he went to the Vikings, in the end he’s still a Packer, we still love him.”
