Stephen Colbert had a rather direct message for Herschel Walker, the former soccer star and current GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia, and he delivered it in a way Walker should appreciate: via a greeting card.
Walker, who claims to be a “pro-life” candidate, reportedly paid for an abortion in 2009 for a woman he was dating at the time. The woman showed The Daily Beast a receipt for the procedure along with a bank deposit from Walker and a recovery card bearing her signature.
“Walker went on Fox News last night and was asked about this evidence by the most effective form of birth control known to man: Sean Hannity,” Colbert said.
Walker denied his claims, said he had never seen the recovery card, but noted that he was sending “so much healing, sending so much of anything”.
“Of course,” agreed Colbert mockingly. “All celebrities send cards to complete strangers.”
Then, the “Late Show” host reached into his pocket and pulled out a greeting card to send to Walker.
“Dear Herschel, get well,” Colbert read aloud, then scratched it and wrote, “Get fucked.”
