Joe Walsh: Why I’m Not Voting for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump

“I don’t think there’s a choice for president, and I don’t think it matters who’s president,” Eagles guitarist says

Joe Walsh has revealed that, come November, he won’t be casting his vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. In a new interview with the Associated Press, the Eagles guitarist explained: “I am not for any existing candidate but I sure am going to vote on who the judges are where I live because I may have to go talk to them sometime,” Walsh said.

“Here’s my problem: Hillary Clinton has been found grossly negligent of classified information. Period. She should not have any security clearance. That should be taken away from her,” Walsh said. “Anyone else in the country who did what she did would be stripped of all security clearance. How is she going to be president? That’s a technical foul that makes her not a candidate. She’s disqualified. That’s what I see.”

As for Trump, “Donald is, I don’t know, it’s like taking all your money and going up on the roof and going ‘Wheeee!’ Who knows?”

Instead, this Election Day, Walsh recommended being more concerned about who gets voted into City Hall than the White House. “I don’t think there’s a choice for president, and I don’t think it matters who’s president, you know what matters? Voting,” Walsh said. “Not so much voting for the president. What matters is voting for where you live: Who’s your mayor, who’s your police chief, who represents you, your city council, your judges. That matters that you vote.”

Walsh didn’t say whether or not he’s ‘feeling the Bern,’ but he did agree with Bernie Sanders’ assessment that many facets of America needed a major overhaul. “Bernie has a great look at it,” Walsh said. “I mean people think he’s a kook. People don’t like what he is saying because it’s the truth and, you know, we are pretending – we’re just pretending everything is OK.”
