(HUFFINGTON POST) Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said that President Barack Obama is a “tyrant,” or that he would be if he was “smart enough to know what that means,” at at town hall event in Elmhurst, Ill., on Saturday.

Walsh was responding to Obama’s immigration policy change announced on Friday. The administration will no longer deport undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and will begin granting work permits.

A video of the event was disclosed on Wednesday to The Huffington Post by CREDO, a super PAC focused on defeating Walsh and other Tea Party candidates.
