Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz was pretty happy on Tuesday to dance on the political grave of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), calling the former presidential candidate a “freaking loser” and saying he lacked the intelligence to be President.

Walker dropped out of the 2016 GOP race Monday evening and encouraged other Republican candidates to do the same to derail the party’s frontrunner, Donald Trump.

Schultz, who was once suspended at MSNBC for calling conservative radio host Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut,” used his podcast on Tuesday to focus on Walker’s failed candidacy.

“What we have learned from Scott Walker throughout all of these months is that you can do a hell of a lot with an ego,” Schultz said.

“The guy’s a freaking loser,” he said. “I feel vindicated. I knew along that attacking workers, attacking unions, and taking things away from hard working families is not a pathway to the future.”

Schultz said Walker dropping out was good news for Republicans because “all he was doing was getting in the way.”

Schultz also said Walker lacked the intelligence and academic credentials to be President.

“He has no idea. He’s never had any ideas, and his ego was as big as Asia,” Schultz said. “We all knew this was going to happen. We just didn’t know it was going to happen this fast.”
