A few hours after Georgia's Republican United States Senate nominee Herschel Walker and its incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock squared off in a debate, HBO's Bill Maher tore into Walker for running a campaign defined by rank hypocrisy, false statements, and personal scandals.

On Friday night's edition of Real Time, the namesake host mercilessly mocked Walker, whose candidacy is enthusiastically backed by former President Donald Trump.

"Well, first of all, he's just a f*cking idiot on a scale almost impossible to parody, although we did once present his book, called, Herschel Walker Science Talker. Because he says things like, 'if man descended from apes, why are there still apes?'" Maher quipped.

"Then there's the lying and the crazy and the violence. Not only did he write a book about having twelve different personalities – he wrote it with two other people," Maher said. "He admits that he used to play Russian roulette. He used to threaten to blow his wife's brains out – a lot – and seems to have never met a family member he hasn't threatened to kill. He threatened to kill his girlfriend, and he stalked a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, but that was just to get [Florida Governor] Ron DeSantis her boots."

Walker, Maher recalled, "has threatened to shoot cops" and "claimed to be a cop – he wasn't. Claimed to be an FBI agent – wasn't. Claimed to be valedictorian of his high school – wasn't. Claimed to graduate in the top one percent of his class – never graduated. Claimed to have once supervised six hospitals, which is amazing given the job he had with the FBI. When the pandemic hit, he tried to sell a dry mist COVID cure that would 'kill any COVID on your body,' because one of his personalities is Dr. Oz."

Maher added that "just since the campaign began, three secret children have been unearthed and one of his says, of Herschel, 'he has four kids, four different women, wasn't in the house raising one of them.' Yeah, he's very pro-family, just not his. He's one hundred percent against abortion – no exceptions – but his girlfriend has proof he paid for hers. Then he got her pregnant again."
