A video showing Herschel Walker taking credit for the intelligence of Donald Trump’s kids has reappeared on social media.
The Republican candidate for Georgia’s U.S. Senate said that he was responsible for Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.’s intelligence since he spent time with them as children.
Before entering politics in 2019, Walker reportedly made these remarks while addressing civilian employees and military troops at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord
Walker’s video was shared on Twitter on December 1 by the user PatriotTakes, and it has now received more than 55,000 views.
“I don’t know if y’all know this, but I knew Donald [Trump] before he became ‘The Donald.’ Matter of fact, little Ivanka and little Donald lived with me for a week, for five years, during the summer. Every amusement park, Disney World, Sea World—every place they went, I was the one to take them.,” Walker can be heard saying in the clip.
“I kept them for a week, so the intelligence of those two kids right there—not from Donald.”
The audience began to chuckle as Walker pointed at himself and implied that he was in charge of the IQ of the Trump children.
Another video of Walker from the same occasion went viral last month.
A video of Walker insulting his son was also published by Patriot Takes on November 24 and had over 320,000 views.
“Speaking to soldiers, Herschel Walker described his ‘dumb as a brick’ -streetwise son, Christian, as an ‘ugly’ baby with a ‘long head’ that ‘looked like an alien from the ‘X-files,’ and blamed his wife’s ‘awful genes,” the caption reads.
“I still remember this, when I delivered him, he had this long, long head. Seriously, he looked like an alien. I told my wife, your parents got some awful genes and stuff. They say no matter how ugly your child is, you still think they are pretty. So they cleaned Christian up and stuff, I then go ‘he is not that bad.’ I’m so proud of my little dude and I remember wheeling him into the nursery,” Walker says in the clip.
He went on to say: “[At the nursery] I wheeled little Christian up to the window because I am so proud of my little boy. But he got this long head, the poor little dude, and all of a sudden I remember this little girl right next to him, this round head [with] all this hair, beautiful little girl.
“Normally little kids are ugly when they are born at first, but this little girl was pretty. I am looking at Christian, and I am looking at her, and I go, ‘wow I am going to slide her over a little and stuff because everybody’s gonna come to that window and go, ‘Wow, that’s a beautiful little girl,’ and then they’re gonna look at Christian Walker—’Woah, X-Files,’ like he’s an alien.”
Walker then made a cross with his fingers and the audience began to laugh.
Walker and Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, will face the battle in a runoff election in Georgia on December 6.
