Listen as Herschel Walker Tells Stacey Abrams that There are ’51 Other States’ Where She Can Go Live

As a dual citizen, I have had to pass the citizenship test required to gain American citizenship. It was not hard for a college senior educated in the United States. It is certainly not an intelligence test. It’s a test as to one’s familiarity with the American system of government and America generally. It is an obvious and good idea.  If a person did not grow up here and was not afforded the luxury of a high school or college education, it is certainly worth studying beforehand.

MAGAs and the Right used to mock that Barack Obama used to teach Constitutional law for the University of Chicago. Yes, well, all one can say at this point is that one doesn’t need to be a constitutional law professor to effectively serve this country. However, if office holders were required to take the exact same test that potential United States citizens are required to take, we would never have had a “President Donald Trump” (He could not pay someone to take this test) and we would not have a potential Senator Herschel Walker in Georgia.

Herschel Walker once said he finished near the top of his class at the University of Georgia, but one need only listen to him for, oh, three to four sentences to figure out that he not only didn’t finish “near the top” at the University of Georgia, he actually didn’t finish and we think we know why.

Listen to Herschel Walker talk about Stacey Abrams (who isn’t even his opponent) and offer advice to Abrams who had said that Georgia was one of the worst states with respect to healthcare:

Herschel Walker addresses Stacey Abrams comment that GA is the worst state for health care: “If it’s the worst state, why are you here? Why don’t you leave, go to another. There’s what? 51 more other states you can go to.”

I tell you what, Herschel. If you arrange for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico to gain statehood, we will even allow you to win your race (Though Herschel will have to find his own state to represent, we’re not giving up Senator Warnock.) At that point, and only at that point, will there be 52 states, you stupid…

Citizenship test, one of the first questions, and Walker would bonk.
