Herschel Walker’s Son is Perplexed: Why Send $40 Billion to Ukraine? We Have School Shootings Right Here!
Yes, yes, we know. The SON is not the one in office nor running for office, and we cannot hold the father responsible for the son’s activities. We have had to inform the Right many times that Hunter Biden isn’t the president. It is also important to note that when family members espouse an opinion, that opinion is not necessarily indicative of the candidate or official’s opinion.
But we can point to family – and do – when family members, such as the Trumps, do things that may be illegal or say things that are absolutely moronic and hold the family member responsible or just mock him or her mercilessly without necessarily placing blame on the parent or family member.
This is especially true when it’s a young family member because it is more likely demonstrative of the values instilled by the parent.
So what could we possibly learn from Herschel Walker’s son, Christian Walker, when Christian is angry that we just sent $40 billion in aid to Ukraine when we have so many school shootings here? Well, for one, he’s a moron, but that doesn’t mean much when it comes to Herschel’s beliefs.
More importantly, we learn that the Walker family is very Republican. The answer to mass shootings is to spend money on programs here, not the relatively cheap fix of universal background checks and a ban on assault rifles. We also learn that the Walker family is VERY MAGA in that they, too, want the exact same policy change Putin wants from the American government. Stop sending aid to Ukraine. It is SO weird how all these Trump acolytes always want what Putin would want.

Aid to Ukraine does increase American security. Preventing the spread of authoritarianism and stopping Putin in his tracks strengthens American democracy and prevents Putin from causing even more trouble, which would cost far more money. If Putin’s government was overthrown, the MAGAs would suddenly… be leaderless? Well, at least not strangely tied to Putin. Walker’s readiness to fight for Putin is very telling.

We won’t say that Twitter laughed or enjoyed responding, it’s hard to laugh right now. But “dismayed” might be a better term.
Richard Simmons thinks he should dial it back a bit.

Gee, jazz hands, tell us why our Government WON'T PASS GUN CONTROL LAWS, which has nothing to do with aiding Ukraine.

Makes perfect sense and I can totally see the correlation. Also can someone please tell me why IHOP is still selling pancakes when the Lakers didn't make the playoffs?

I wonder how many members of the gay community will want anything to do with him after his father’s campaign is over one way or the other? Making some of the comments he has sure hasn’t endeared him to too many left-leaning people, gay or straight.

Some super PAC is going to make this kid front and center of his dad's campaign. Coupled with Herchel's inability to put together more than three monosyllabic words, it should be quite the ride in the barrel for the Walker family.

I guess he doesn’t understand that stopping school shootings doesn’t cost the government a dime. It just requires republicans to vote for gun control bills. Something his father, if elected to the senate, would never do.

Does Herschel know Christian is gay? Just curious.

Aww, he got the empathy and intelligence genes from his daddy. So precious.
