However, apparently, the same thing applies to those who run against football players as well. On Tuesday, as you no doubt know, the 118th Congress kicked off its first day. This meant all kinds of swearings-in — including J.D. Vance, the new Republican senator from Ohio. Conservative writer and political consultant Ryan James Girdusky tweeted and quote-tweeted photos of Vance standing next to Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia, who won a full term after defeating former football star Herschel Walker in November.

Vance, it ended up being Warnock — or mainly, Warnock’s right and — that got most of the attention.

What’s wrong with Warnock’s pinky?— The Based Patriot (@BasedPatriot74) January 3, 2023
Indeed, concern about Warnock’s finger wasn’t an uncommon reaction on social media.

Brah what the f**k is that with Warnock’s finger— Dick Whitman (🌎/21M) (@GhostofWhitman) January 3, 2023
McFarland’s left hand is disfigured by injuries on the field over a career in a violent game. It was unclear Thursday why Warnock’s right pinky is so off. This is not a new issue, however. Here’s Warnock’s 2020 swearing-in, for instance, in which his finger also seems askew:
The politicians are ACTUALLY crooked in real terms not just in corruption terms.— Xristos (@Xristos42087) January 4, 2023
Other photos by NBC News and CNN seem to confirm this. Of course, it’s not going to make any real difference in Warnock’s ability to govern — or misgovern, considering his political party. However, it’s surprising when it’s Herschel Walker’s opponent who’s making news for the gnarled hands, not Walker himself. It’s also good to see the Democrats finding new and novel ways to be crooked. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
