The nation’s justice correspondent Elie Mystal said Wednesday on SiriusXM’s The Dean Obeidallah Show that “white MAGA, bigoted Southerners liked” Georgia GOP US Senate nominee Herschel Walker because he was “stupid.” .
Obeidallah said, “Okay. This is Herschel Walker speaking about the debate with Senator Warnock. He actually gave us October 14th as the date. He likes to pimp the date there to make it exciting for people. So what’s the game here in our last 2 minutes? Herschel Walker really lowered the bar, a guy who won the Heisman, who won the Pro Bowl in the NFL. You have to learn a lot of plays for that. You have learned a lot. It’s not a game.”
Mystal said, “‘I’m just a poor country candidate for the Senate who isn’t that smart and doesn’t know much about a lot of things. But what I do know is that I should be your senator so I can represent you in Congress, although I don’t know what a nice suit would know, because apparently suits have brains now. I don’t know much, but I do know that I should be your senator so I can vote exactly as Mitch McConnell tells me to. Because I just told you I’m too stupid to find out for myself!’ This is the game plan.”
He added: “And it does two things right. It’s one, the obvious kind of old school, lower expectations. As long as he’s not drooling, or even if he’s drooling, as long as he’s not tripping over his own drool, he’ll say, oh, Walker exceeded expectations. Right? So that’s just part of his media horse racing game. But the other thing is to remind those white MAGA, bigoted Southerners, “Don’t worry, they’re not electing a black man who’s going to be able to think for himself that he’s too stupid to do anything else ‘than to vote as his white superiors tell him to vote.’ Two things with a stupid press conference.”
