Republican candidate Herschel Walker’s son, Christian Walker, condemned his father for lying about paying for a girlfriend’s abortion in two videos posted to Twitter Tuesday, calling his father’s alleged lies “atrocious.”
“The abortion part drops yesterday, it’s literally his handwriting in the card, they say they have receipts, whatever, he gets on Twitter, he lies about it,” Christian Walker, who is also a prominent conservative influencer, said in a video. “OK, I’m done. Done. Everything has been a lie.”
Walker’s follow-up video comments come a day after The Daily Beast reported that Georgian Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who claims to be pro-life, paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009 — an accusation which the former athlete denied Monday as a “flat-out lie.” He said he would be suing the publication for the “defamatory lie” that would be filed Tuesday. (At the time of publishing, nothing had been filed.)
Christian responded via Twitter to his father’s denial Monday evening, saying “I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us.” He continued to accuse the football player of leaving he and his mother to “bang a bunch of women” and “threaten[ing] to kill” them both.
Less than an hour later, Herschel tweeted, “I LOVE my son no matter what.”
The former football player’s son also spoke out about his father’s claimed “family values” saying, “Family values people? He has four kids, four different women, wasn’t in the house raising one of them; he was out having sex with other women.”
He also called out both the left and the right by explaining, “You have no idea what me and my mom have survived” and noting “we could have ended this on Day 1.”
Christian also revealed that he was told the campaign would “get ahead of his past [and] hold himself accountable,” something the football player’s son said would have been fine with him, but instead, “everything’s been a lie, everything’s been downplayed, everything’s been cutting corners.”
The alleged lies are at the expense of Christian and his mother, Herschel’s son says, noting “people are questioning my authenticity.”
“I wouldn’t have spoken out if there weren’t all these lies everyday,” he concluded.
