Herschel Walker—a former football star—is the Republican Party's Donald Trump handpicked nominee for United States Senate for Georgia in the 2022 midterms. But Walker faces a mounting number of allegations against him from his family members and former partners and a string of bizarre and incoherent public statements.
Walker was dragged again after he told a story about a bull who got three cows pregnant.
Walker made the remarks at a rally in Arkansas where he appeared alongside the state's Republican Senator Tom Cotton and Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott.
What Walker appeared to want to communicate—the United States is the best country in the world—was completely lost in translation when he proceeded to tell a story about "this bull out in the field with six cows, and three of them are pregnant."
His anecdote constituted his most incoherent remarks yet, momentarily stealing the spotlight from reports he fathered several children out of wedlock and he paid for a girlfriend's abortion and pressured her to get a second one despite coming out against reproductive rights and endorsing a proposal to ban all abortion procedures nationwide—even for cases of rape, incest and when the mother's life is in jeopardy.
You can hear what Walker said about the bull in the video below.
“And they’ve been saying, ‘Something is better somewhere else.’ And I’m here to tell you it’s not."
"So, I been telling this little story about this bull out in the field with six cows, and three of them are pregnant. So, you know he got something goin’ on."
"But all he cared about is keep his nose against the fence, looking at three other cows that didn’t belong to him. Now all he had to do is eat grass. But no, no, no."
"He thought something was better somewhere else. So, he decided, ‘I want to get over there.’ So one day, he measured that fence up, and he said, ‘I think I can jump this.’"
"So that day came where he got back. And as he got back and as he took off runnin’, he dove over that fence, and his belly got cut up under the bottom."
"But as he made it onto the other side, he shook it off and got so excited about it. And he ran to the top of that hill, but when he got up there, he realized they were bulls too."
So what I’m telling you don’t think something is better somewhere else. This is the greatest country in the world today.”
Walker's remarks had social media users feeling absolutely befuddled.

\u201cIt's so offensive that white voters see no qualitative difference between this CTE addled simpleton and Rev. Warnock.\u201d— Eye B The Main 1 (@Eye B The Main 1) 1665587662
\u201cI think the moral of his story was vote for Warnock because it won't be better with him as senator.\u201d— Jack Ryan \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@Jack Ryan \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1665588435
\u201cThe look on Cotton\u2019s face is worth every moment of this meandering, ill-chosen parable.\u201d— Patrick Chovanec (@Patrick Chovanec) 1665537014

\u201cI like watching Tom Cotton pretend like this isn\u2019t humiliating.\u201d— Davram (@Davram) 1665546819
\u201cIt is interesting that he chose to use this story given his history. #WalkerIsNotElectable\u201d— Just Bill, highly caffeinated (@Just Bill, highly caffeinated) 1665575335
Walker is known for making head-scratching remarks.
Walker was mocked over the summer after he argued the government should not enact laws designed to combat air pollution because America’s “good air” will simply “decide” to go to China.
A clip of Walker's remarks went viral following a campaign stop in Hall County, Georgia on Saturday, July 9. He said since "we don’t control the air, our good air decided to float over to China’s bad air, so when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move."
Walker added all of this "bad air" then "moves over to our good air space. Then now we got to clean that back up."
In April, Walker was widely criticized on social media after he claimed Democratic President Joe Biden's administration “decided that they were going to give up our energy."
Walker continued to offer some incomprehensible energy policy advice. He went on to say the Biden administration "started the whole downfall" because the United States is not "energy dependent anymore."
Claiming the Biden administration "blamed everyone else except themselves," he referred to the Michael Jackson song "The Man in the Mirror," saying "you gotta look at yourself to know what's going on."
