The great thing about America is that any citizen of a certain age can run for office. The bad thing about America is that any citizen of a certain age can run for office.
The bar is extremely low and former football star Herschel Walker is at the bottom.
Walker has been in the news of late as his clown show of a campaign to unseat Raphael Warnock in Georgia’s senatorial race has taken the latest turn, as the GOP’s favorite do-boy is looking extremely funny in the light. It’s been reported that Walker — who stands against abortion — allegedly paid for an abortion in 2009. There are claims of a “get well” card from Walker, as well as allegations that the woman claims she has the receipts to prove it all happened. Walker claims he has no idea who she is. But funny enough, it’s been reported that she’s the mother of one of his children.
Unsurprisingly, Republicans still don’t care.
Walker has publicly denied the allegations. He called it a “repugnant hatchet job from a democratic activist disguised as a reporter.” It’s just the latest of a long line of bizarre things that Walker has said in public, as he tries to become one of the most important people in the American political system, as a win could swing the Senate in the favor of the GOP.
It’s funny, but it’s also scary. Here are 10 wild quotes from arguably the most unfit candidate there’s ever been.
