The sports world reacts to the strange video of Herschel Walker
Herschel Walker, Georgia GOP senatorial candidate and former Georgia Bulldogs star, seems to create trouble every time he opens his mouth. Sometimes it’s because he’s lying and other times it’s because he answers questions with word salads so dense they’re impossible to understand.
It was the latter on display during a recent speech when he started discussing climate change and went off on a tangent that’s pretty impossible to decipher.
Herschel on climate/Green New Deal/air:
“Since we don’t control the air, our good air has decided to float to China’s bad air, so when China receives our good air, its bad air must move. So it moves to our good space aerial. So now we have us to clean up that backup.” pic.twitter.com/BsR4GVAbX7

“Since we don’t control the air, our good air has decided to float towards China’s bad air. So when China gets our good air, its bad air has to move,” Walker said. “So it’s moving to our good airspace. So now we have to clean this backup.
It’s the latest in a series of bizarre speeches and talks from Walker, and it’s understandable now to see why he refused to debate any other GOP nominees ahead of Georgia’s primary.
Naturally, as this clip went viral on Monday, there were strong reactions from many different parts of social media. Given that Walker was a famous college football and NFL star, the sports world was also very aware of the comments and had their own reactions.

No one who votes for Herschel Walker does so for a well-thought-out political platform.
What’s the problem, right?

Knowing that he could potentially be a US senator is a scary proposition.
