U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was commenting on the Senate race in her state between incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock and Hershel Walker when she denounced the Democratic senator who is also a senior pastor at Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church as someone who “preaches abortion from the pulpit.”
Greene was asked to comment on Walker’s campaign during an appearance on Charlie Kirk’s podcast — Kirk is the founder of the student group Turning Point USA.
“We’re all in for Herschel. I think Herschel is a great guy and I think he’s being slandered and lied about,” Kirk said in setting up the segment. “Herschel had a great debate against Raphael Warnock and Donald Trump is 100% behind Herschel Walker. Tell us about Herschel. Tell us about it, because we really need you to drive rural turnout for Herschel. We need the MAGA America first base to turn out for Herschel.”
“Well, I feel very confident in rural Georgia turning out for Herschel Walker,” Greene replied. “That’s my district. We’re a rural district, manufacturing district, very similar to the parts of Georgia where Herschel Walker came from, where he grew up, very similar and similar in our values, similar in our Christian faith, similar in our small towns and communities.”
“We are supporting Herschel Walker because we want to defeat Raphael Warnock,” she continued. “And I think Herschel Walker did such a good job at the debate. I was so happy that the rest of the country finally got to see the Herschel Walker that I know, the Herschel Walker that most of us in Georgia know that have heard him speak before.”
After reiterating that Walker “put a lot of the criticism to bed” with his debate performance and stating that she is confident that he will win, Greene set her sights on Warnock.
“We’re going to defeat Raphael Warnock, who calls himself a Christian,” she said.
“It’s so sick,” Kirk interjected.
“Calls himself a pastor, but preaches abortion from the pulpit,” the congresswoman said. “And it’s such an abomination. It’s completely wrong, It’s evil.”
