Herschel Walker says the only thing he can support about Biden is he ‘eats a lot of ice cream’


Georgia Republican Herschel Walker said the one Biden policy he supports is ‘eating a lot of ice cream’ as he admitted to giving his ex-girlfriend a $700 check in a wide-ranging interview with NBC. 

NBC obtained a copy of the check and a receipt for the abortion procedure from Walker’s ex, who is the mother of one of his children. The news outlet handed Walker a copy of the check during the interview. 

‘Yes, that’s my check,’ said the Senate candidate, who is embattled in one of the midterm’s hottest races this season. 

He denied, however, that the 2009 check was intended to pay for an abortion. 

‘It’s a lie,’ Walker said. ‘Prove that I did that. Just show me things like that does nothing for me.’ 

He said he has ‘no idea what that could be for’ and claimed he had offered the woman many checks over the years. The woman told NBC News that was the only payment Walker ever sent prior to her having his child. 

‘You want me to answer something that’s a lie, and everyone’s trying to trick me and make me respond,’ Walker added. 

Walker also defended whipping out a prop police badge Friday night during the debate. ‘This is from my hometown. This is from Johnson County from the sheriff from Johnson County, which is a legit badge,’ Walker said in the NBC interview

On why voters should believe him, Walker said: ‘Voters believe me because I have been very transparent about everything I’ve ever done. You know I wrote a book about everything I have done, I have not tried to hide one thing I’ve ever done.’

The woman first told The Daily Beast that Walker pressured her to have an abortion and provided a copy of the $700 check and a ‘get well’ card the ex-NFL star offered her in 2009. The woman became pregnant with Walker’s child again in 2011 but refused his requests for her to have an abortion that time and the relationship ended.

Walker has previously expressed support Sen. Lindsey Graham’s 15-week abortion bill with no exceptions for rape or incest, but changed course during a debate with Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock on Friday. 

He said he supported the Georgia heartbeat bill, which bans abortions earlier on in a pregnancy but makes exceptions for rape and incest.  

‘I will always support life, but I also support what the people’s voice is,’ Walker said. ‘The people’s voice is the Georgia heartbeat bill, which has exceptions in it. Well, I’m a senator for the people. And I said, one of the problems we have [is that] senators in Washington forgot about the people who put them there.’ 

Walker also defended whipping out a prop police badge Friday night during the debate. 

‘This is from my hometown. This is from Johnson County from the sheriff from Johnson County, which is a legit badge,’ Walker said in the NBC interview.

Walker pulled out the honorary badge as Warnock claimed he had ‘pretended to be a police officer.’ 

‘One thing I have not done — I’ve never pretended to be a police officer, and I’ve never threatened a shootout with police,’ Warnock said during the debate.  

‘Everyone can make fun, but this badge gives me the right … if anything happened in this county, I have the right to work with the police in getting things done,’ Walker said in the NBC interview.

‘I never embellish,’ Walker added. ‘I’ve never done it. I work in law enforcement.’

The senate candidate also responded to allegations of domestic violence by his ex-wife and 23-year-old conservative influencer son Christian.

Walker was asked about Christian’s allegations that he and his mother were forced to move ‘six times in six months running from your violence.’ 

‘I love my son Christian. I love my whole family. I’ll always love them and stuff. That’s what I’ll say for my son Christian, and I don’t have any violence,’ Walker responded. 

Asked about his struggles with mental illness, which he wrote about in a 2008 memoir. He said he no longer suffers from the symptoms of dissociative personality disorder. 

‘I’ve been redeemed,’ Walker told NBC. ‘I will say it like this: Everyone wants to talk about a house I used to live in. I don’t live there no more. I moved out. My life is now doing some incredible things.’

Walker has blamed his condition for allegations of past violent episodes. Christian’s mother, Cindy Grossman, said in a 2008 interview with CNN that Walker had held a gun to her head multiple times and once held a razor to her throat. Walker did not deny the allegations but said he has no recollection of them. 

Despite his checkered past, former President Trump launched Walker to the forefront of the Senate race with an endorsement. Still, Walker refused to discuss the former president’s persistent claims of 2020 election fraud. 

‘Herschel Walker’s running,’ he said in the interview. ‘President Trump is not running. President Trump, he’s in Florida. Who’s in office right now is President Biden, Senator Warnock and their policy is hurting this country.’

Asked specifically if he believed the election is rigged, Walker replied: ‘I have no idea and I don’t care. What I care about is this election coming up in November.’
