Stephen Colbert had a rather direct message for Herschel Walker, the former football 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 as well as a bank deposit from Walker and a get-well card with his signature on it.
Walker denied her claims, said he had never seen the get-well card, but noted that he sends “so many get-well, send out so much of anything.”
“Sure,” Colbert mockingly agreed. “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 out loud, then scratched it out and wrote: “Get fucked.”
