Appearing in an interview with Charlie Sykes on Newsradio 620 WTMJ Wednesday morning, Governor Scott Walker said Donald Trump's decision to attack him ahead of Wisconsin's primary was akin to "coming into Lambeau Field and taking a whack" at Aaron Rodgers.
The governor's comments came as Sykes interviewed him about Tuesday's election results, widely hailed as a victory for Walker due to his successful endorsement of Senator Ted Cruz. About three and a half minutes into the interview (listen above), Sykes pivoted to Trump's attacks on Walker.
"I thought one of the more decisive moments though was when Donald Trump made the bizarre decision that he was going to attack you," Sykes said, "trot out those bogus discredited numbers about the budget deficit, and then suggest that you were a bad governor..."
Walker laughed, before seemingly comparing himself to two of the all-time great Green Bay Packers players:
"It would have been like coming into Lambeau Field and taking a whack not only at Aaron Rodgers, but it would be, even taking a whack even though he's been gone for a while, at someone like Brett Favre...," Walker said.
"That would have been like having somebody coming in and not getting it, and coming in and somehow attacking Brett Favre in Lambeau Field, in Green Bay; it just would not have worked," he added.
It didn't work. Trump's strategy fell flat, resulting in a nearly 13-point loss to Cruz.
