ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Donald Trump-backed Republican, Herschel Walker, who is ready to face off against Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock in Georgia’s runoffs for the US Senate in December, made a hilarious slip-up while campaigning with Senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham. As of now, Walker's campaign is marred by scandals and accusations including that he fathered multiple secret children, lied about his credentials and pressured two ex-partners into getting abortions.

Speaking to Fox News, the 60-year-old football player turned candidate slipped up big time while saying that the election was for the people. Instead he said, "Well, first of all, this election is about more than Herschel Walker. This erection is about the people." The internet wasted no time in roasting Walker, who was seen in the video with Cruz and Graham, who quitely nodded as he continued. He's the reason why the word "erection" is trending on Twitter.
