Herschel Walker is a regular gaffe machine who not only misspeaks when making public statements, but reveals his own astounding ignorance at how things work whenever he opens his mouth. It’s gotten so bad that he has his own people protecting him from media pundits – but this doesn’t quite help when he’s already got all the idiotic things he’s said on tape where they can easily be regurgitated in time for campaign season.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of them and Sen. Raphael Warnock dropped a campaign ad revealing the tip of the iceberg: A 2020 video where Walker drops a conspiracy theory about a spray that kills COVID as you walk through it.
It’s essentially the same demented nonsense we got from the former guy who openly mused about drinking bleach or direct exposure to UV light to cure COVID. The message is clear: This guy has Trump’s stamp all over him even if the former guy doesn’t appear for him at a rally ever again – something that isn’t too likely to happen. This is the last thing the GOP wants – having to even attempt to defend these comments at the worst possible time – as we know this will inevitably come up in the debates in some form or other.
The best possible thing Walker can do is run out the clock. Meanwhile, Sen. Warnock needs our help as he runs for re-election to a full-term in the Senate. This is a race that could end up being closer than we should – but momentum is on our side. Let’s do all we can to keep Georgia blue.
