Raphael Warnock Hilariously Trolls Herschel Walker's Bizarre Speeches in New Ad

The ad is just voters reacting to the wild shit Walker says, including his rants about vampires, a horny bull, and China’s “bad air” floating over the U.S.

As the days tick down until the December 6 runoff election between Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Republican Herschel Walker, it appears the Warnock team is taking inspiration from the successful Pennsylvania Senate campaign—by doing some light trolling.

Over the weekend, Warnock released a video of people reacting to wild campaign stump speeches from Walker, the Trump-endorsed former NFL player. The clips they saw included Walker talking about vampires, a horny bull, and China’s “bad air” floating over the U.S.

Memorable responses in the ad include: “what the hell is he taking about?,” “what on earth?,” “unbelievable,” and “no one’s watching this and being like, ‘oh, man, that guy’s got it together.’”

The video has 1.5 million views as of Monday morning.

The first clip people hear is Walker’s recent tangent in which he claimed that werewolves can kill vampires. (Fact check: Not true.) Here is Walker rambling about werewolves in an extended aside about how people need to “have faith,” more broadly but also in Georgia.

The second speech clip is the bull parable he told in October—a strange choice for someone who hid the existence of multiple children from his own campaign and has been accused by two different women of impregnating them, then paying for their abortions.

Then finally, the good air/bad air quote. In July, Walker opined on air pollution by saying: “our good air decide to float over to China’s bad air. So when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move. So it moves over to our good air space. Then—now we got we to clean that back up.” Here are those now-viral comments:

The horrified viewers sum up their thoughts at the end of Warnock’s video. “He’s completely unqualified for this really, really serious job,” says one woman, while a man says, “It’s a risk to me and millions of Georgians to put this man in a position of power.” The video ends with the caption: “Does Herschel Walker really represent you?”

The Democrats have already clinched (narrow) control of the Senate with 50 seats—plus a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Kamala Harris—but if Warnock were to win, they’d have an outright 51 to 49 majority and wouldn’t have to share power on committees.

Warnock was leading by four points in one recent poll, and his campaign has raised more money than Walker’s, but that doesn’t account for the millions that Republican super PACs will be spending.
