Former NFL player and current GOP Senate candidate for Georgia Herschel Walker is feeling the consequences of some of his more bizarre claims. A new campaign ad put out by his opponent, incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock, features Walker's own words.
Walker previously claimed to Glenn Beck that he had access to a "dry mist" that could "kill the virus," just by walking through it, during a 2020 appearance on Beck's podcast.
"Do you know, right now, I have something that can bring you into a building that would clean you from covid as you walk through this dry mist?"
"As you walk through the door, it will kill any covid on your body. EPA-, FDA-approved."
"When you leave, that will kill the virus as you leave, this here product. Then, I have something—you can go and spray down this product."
"Do you know? They don’t want to talk about that. They don’t want to hear about that."
Walker never specifically named this supposed miracle spray that could kill COVID-19 with a simple spray when entering or exiting a building.
The campaign ad put out by Warnock accuses Walker of pushing a "snake oil body spray for COVID" before asking if Walker is really the right person to represent Georgia.
A seemingly magical spray to kill COVID is far from the only bizarre, or downright disturbing, thing Walker has said.
Twitter users were definitely not buying Walker's claims, and many agreed with Warnock.
MeidasTouch, a political action committee (PAC) originally created to stop the re-election of Donald Trump in 2020, compiled a list of the top 10 most "bizarre and dangerous" things Walker has said.
In addition to the bizarre and dangerous, Walker has also made some plain ridiculous claims.
Like his belief Donald Trump has never claimed the 2020 election was rigged, saying the claim has only ever been made by members of the media.
Trump, of course, repeats this claim of election fraud at nearly every public appearance he makes.
