Issue-plagued U.S. Senate applicant Herschel Walker has introduced an astounding argument for not enacting guidelines against air pollution: America’s “good air” will basically “decide” to go to China, he instructed supporters in Georgia.
A viral video clip clip of the speech by the Republican — who has been endorsed by Donald Trump — in the course of a marketing campaign end in Hall County, Ga, on Saturday, is building the rounds on Twitter and has triggering a tsunami of criticism. (Even Fox News conceded Walker’s mangled point of view “drew criticism.”)
“Since we really don’t regulate the air, our great air made the decision to float over to China’s lousy air, so when China gets our fantastic air, their undesirable air got to transfer,” Walker stated. “So it moves more than to our excellent air room. Then now we obtained to clean that again up,” he additional.

They make negative air and export it to the US for cleaning. Following we have cleaned their air we mail back again the good air and they deliver us one more get of undesirable air. Econ 101, truly.

The wild air air pollution idea is just the hottest in a string of embarrassing revelations about the previous soccer star, such as a very long checklist of lies.
He has claimed he was an FBI agent (he was not), graduated from college (he didn’t), was his higher school’s valedictorian (no once more). And immediately after railing about absentee fathers, Walker confirmed he has a few further kids the general public just figured out about.
