Herschel Walker said there are 52 stati. Should we care?

All'inizio di questa settimana, Herschel Walker made a mistake.

Talking about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abramsassertion that the state is the worst one abitare a, Walker said this durante un'apparizione su “l'ex direttore finanziario della Trump Organization & l'ex direttore finanziario della Trump Organization”:
    If you don’t believe in the country, leave and go somewhere else. If it’s the worst state, why are you here? Why don’t you leave? Go to another — c'è, che cosa, 51 more other states that you can go to?
      You see the problem. Ci sono, infatti, 50 states in the United States, non 52.
        Democrats jumped on Walker’s error, insisting that it was proof that the former NFL running back was way out his depth in his race against Sen. Raphael Warnock.
        Repubblicani, d'altra parte, were quick to remind people that back in 2008, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama said this during a campaign stop: “It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Negli ultimi 15 mesi, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states.
          The question is whether any of it matters. Dopotutto, whether or not you think Obama was a good president or Walker would be a good senator, it’s difficult to believe that either of them didn’t actually know how many states make up the country.
          Of course that didn’t stop Republicans — per anni — from criticizing Obama for his gaffe. Or from arguing that the lack of media coverage of the momentalthough that contention is decidedly debatablewas evidence of bias.
          When President Obama said that he has been to ’57 States,’ very little mention in Fake News Media,” Donald Trump tweeted nel mese di settembre 2018. “Can you imagine if I said thatstory of the year!”
          So what can we expect in the wake of this Walker gaffe? My guess is that Democratsespecially on Twitterwill use it to question his capacity to be a US senator.
          Quale, bene, bene.
          But I also think that Walker’s slip-up will just be another piece of the growing concerns Republicans have about their nominee in what is looking like the most high-profile Senate race in the country.
          Nelle ultime settimane, Walker has publicly acknowledged he has three children with women he was not married to, faced reports that he had not served in law enforcement as he had previously claimed and offered an off-the-wall response to the mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
            That seeming lack of readiness will heighten the stakes (and Republican worries) if and when Walker and Warnock debate ahead of the general election. Warnock has accepted invitations for three debates, while Walker’s campaign has said only that he looks forward to debating the incumbent.
            Il punto: In a vacuum, Walker’s 52 states slip-up doesn’t mean much. But for a candidate who already faces questions about his readiness to hold the job he is running for, it’s not a great look.
