Fox and Friends began the week by trying and failing to do some cleanup for Herschel Walker's flailing campaign for Senator from Georgia. They did this by making believe that when Walker went into a bizarre Green New Deal rant during a campaign stop, he was really talking about the Paris Accords.

Brian Kilmeade did his best to let Walker lie and obfuscate about his earlier weird remarks about his obsession with "law enforcement" and his hidden children.

The F&F co-host asked if Walker ever said he worked for the FBI, and Walker said he only trained with the FBI.

That is a lie.

Walker said he was an actual FBI "agent."

Walker said, "I worked for law enforcement you didn't know that either, did you?"

"I spent time in Quantico, at the FBI training school... y'all didn't know I was an agent."

Lying is one thing about his FBI daze, but it's hard to discuss his words about climate change, and make them make sense.

Walker said, "So with all their bad air, but since we don't control the air, our good air decided to float over to China - bad air. So when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move. So it moves over to our good air space. Then now we got to clean that backup."

Kilmeade played this clip and asked, "What did you mean by that?"

"You know that it's very simple," Walker said. "We have clean air here. China does not have clean air," he said.

This is the preschool level of intelligence. Climate change is about air pollution only? Huh?

"And I said, we are doing our part," Walker said.

Kilmeade jumped in to make believe Walker has an actual understanding of climate change.

"So you rip up the Paris climate deal until China and Russia have bought in," Kilmeade said.

"Well, everybody gotta buy in. If everybody don't buy in, what are we doing?" Walker said.

Has Walker ever heard of the Paris agreement?

Does Walker even know where Paris is?

With President's Obama Paris Agreement, the US and almost 200 other nations did buy in. It was the biggest agreement between the world trying to limit greenhouse gases in history

Then along came Trump, and he pulled the United States out altogether, which threw the entire project into jeopardy.

Luckily, the Biden administration announced the US was rejoining the agreement as soon as he was inaugurated.

The only type of interview Walker can get through is one where the interviewer can put words in his mouth.

There's no way he agrees to debate Senator Warnock.
