During a campaign event Wednesday, Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker bragged that he had watched a horror movie recently and decided at the end of the film that he’d rather be a werewolf than a vampire, insisting that it was a matter of “faith.”

Speaking to supporters in McDonough, Georgia, Walker went on an extended and rambling free-form soliloquy:

“I was here watching a stupid movie late at night, hoping it’s gonna get better. It don’t get better, but you keep watching anyway. ‘Cause the other night, I was watching this movie called Fright NightFreak Night or some type of night, but it was about vampires. I don’t know if you know, but vampires are some cool people, are they not? But let me tell you something that I found out: a werewolf can kill a vampire. Did you know that? I never knew that. So I don’t want to be a vampire anymore. I wanna be a werewolf.”

However, Walker was just getting warmed up, adding:

“But then anyway, as I’m watching this movie, and then you tell how stupid it is cause it’s 1 in the morning. So I’m watching my TV of these kids watching their TV of a vampire killed on their TV. So you know it’s kinda stupid, but I’m still watching though. As I’m watching this show, what was funny was these kids had a vampire in their attic at their house. So they were watching their TV — now I’m watching my TV, they’re watching their TV — they see the vampire killer on their TV. So they win this contest to bring this actor — y’all gotta stay with me — bring this actor who’s a vampire killer from that TV to get rid of this real-life vampire in their attic. So this actor comes into their home, he got all the right stuff. Because you know, gotta have a stake, gotta have a thing to kill him in the heart. And he’s got a necklace of garlic, cause that work. I don’t know what it does, but it work. Gotta have a cross, cause it burns, I know that works.”

How does that tie into faith? The former pro football running back explained, sort of:

“It don’t even work unless you’ve got faith. We gotta have faith in our fellow brother, gotta have faith in this country.”

Video of Walker’s comments have now been viewed over 2 million times on social media, and even led to a discussion of the speech on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” with host Joe Scarborough noting:

“I’ve got to say, it’s some rambling incoherence taken to Olympian levels.

“But that is what Donald Trump has brought to the Georgia Republican Party. That is what he’s brought to the GOP, and it’s why people are turning away from Donald Trump. They understand why they didn’t win back the Senate this year, but my gosh, again, it’s, you know, you sit there and laugh at some point. It really is a tragedy that that guy who is so ill-equipped on so many levels to even be the mayor of his hometown in Georgia, according to people from his hometown in Georgia, might be a United States senator.”

The Georgia Senate runoff is December 6.
