Hannity Stuns Herschel Walker by Pressing Him on Paying for Abortion
Just two hours after The Daily Beast Spread the news that Herschel Walker paid for her girlfriend’s abortion In 2009, the vehemently anti-abortion Senate candidate appeared on Fox News’ Hannity for what he thought would be an easy rejection. It didn’t go exactly as planned.
Sean Hannity began the interview by raising “severe accusations” against his guest and offered a bit of a soft spot on whether Walker knew the anonymous woman making the allegation.
“I don’t know,” Walker replied, calling the story a “straight lie,” trying to twist around to talk about “inflation, borders and crime” and even begging for contributions from viewers for struggle campaign.
But instead of letting him take it easy, Hannity did the unexpected and dug into the details of the piece, which came with damn receipts, including a patient card signed by Walker, a personal check signed, also signed by Walker and an actual receipt. from an abortion clinic.
When asked directly if it was his signature on the card, Walker claimed to have never seen the image in question – even if it appeared on the screen next to him – and stuttered. excuse that he sent a lot of healthy cards. “But I can tell you right now, I’ve never asked anyone to have an abortion, I’ve never paid for an abortion, and that’s a lie,” he said. “And I will continue to fight.”
Then, just when Walker thought he’d put the matter to bed with a semi-credential speech about how this latest scandal was only “invigorating” him, Hannity returned with a statement. asked another: “What about the check for $700? Is there anyone you can remember sending that much money? “
After a long pause, Walker said, “Well, I send money to a lot of people.” He excitedly paid for an example of him “helping” people and being “generous,” adding, “God has blessed me, I want to bless others.”
Asking the relatively tough question is all the more surprising because, more than anyone else in the conservative media, Sean Hannity is responsible for make Walker a Senate candidate right from the start. Not only did he speak to him several times on his Fox News show in the weeks leading up to his announcement, but even urged him to run live on air.
“I hope you might consider running for senior office in Georgia,” Hannity told Walker in February 2021. “Have you considered that?” When Walker said he was looking into it, the host offered to endorse it on the spot and added, “I’ll do whatever you want.”
