Scott Walker had the perfect opportunity to call out Donald Trump for his bigotry and callousness Thursday night when Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly questioned Trump about the way he talks about women he doesn’t like. Instead, Scott Walker, like a coward, tucked tail and deferred to the alpha dog in the room, Trump.

“Certainly, I think Donald Trump can speak for himself,” Walker said Friday morning on CBS This Morning, again missing his opportunity to criticize the despicable behavior of the billionaire mogul.

Trump is known for calling women he dislikes “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.”

Walker merely commented that he would not use such language but refrained from condemning Trump directly.

“To me, I think even those I disagree with, I’m going to be respectful,” said Walker.
