Dana Loesch trends on Twitter after abortion comments
In the latest episode of Dana Loesch’s nationally syndicated The Dana Show, the radio personality shared her thoughts on recent reports surrounding US senate candidate Herschel Walker.

While discussing Walker on her show, Loesch compared TDB’s report with fellow senate candidate Raphael Warnock’s policies. The radio host said: “You’re telling me Walker used his money to reportedly pay some skank for abortion, and Warnock wants to use all of our monies to pay a whole bunch of skanks for abortions.”
Walker, a former NFL player, categorically refuted the claims and, in a statement on Twitter, said the woman’s allegations were a “flat-out lie.”
Walker wrote: “I deny this in the strongest terms possible.” He vowed to file a lawsuit against The Daily Beast.
In a statement reported by the BBC, National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesperson Chris Hartline called the report “innuendo and lies.”
