Newt Gingrich told Sean Hannity Tuesday that Herschel Walker is the most important Senate candidate because of his religious beliefs.

And also, according to Newt, we should praise the Republican US Senate candidate from Georgia because he has had a lot of concussions and PTSD.

Newt Gingrich, the resigned and disgraced former House Speaker and now Fox News contributor, ranted with no proof, because that's what Hannity pays him for.

He claimed that it was Senator Warnock who is using dirty politics to expose Walker's past. His violent behavior, abortion funding for me but not for thee -- without mentioning that it was Walker's own son Christian who came out bashing his father for being a liar.

Gingrich seems to forget that Warnock won that Senate seat outright, so Georgian voters do like what he has to offer.

"[Walker] is a remarkable person. I think he is most important Senate candidate in the country because he'll do more to change the Senate just by his sheer presence, by his confidence, by his deep commitment to Christ," Gingrich said.

On Fox News, only Republicans have deep religious beliefs, even if a Democratic Senator is an actual pastor.

"He's been through a long, tough period. He had a lot of concussions coming out of football. He suffered PTSD," Gingrich said.

Obviously, Republicans are banking on the Georgia race and feel like they can win it. They have to ignore the incomprehensible word salad of nonsense coupled with religious jargon Walker spews when trying to answer a simple question.

It is quite apparent that Walker has suffered from multiple concussions and PTSD, Newt.

That doesn't excuse his past violence towards his family, his river of out-and-out lies, his know-nothingness about anything other than a few passages from the Bible.

And that makes Herschel Walker the worst candidate for the Senate, not the best, especially when he's up against such a devout and competent Senator like Raphael Warnock.
