Christian Walker, Herschel Walker’s son, delivered a bone-crunching hit on his father’s football-to-politics career Tuesday after the elder Walker lost his Georgia Senate runoff to incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock.

Walker, the former NFL star backed by Donald Trump, was plagued by scandals during the campaign. He lied about his credentials, spoke incoherently at times and had his anti-abortion platform compromised by accusations that he pressured women into having abortions. Domestic abuse allegations leveled by Christian Walker’s mother also resurfaced.
The young Walker called him out for all of it.
