Jimmy Kimmel Accuses Herschel Walker Of Waging ‘War On Halloween’ Over Fentanyl Found Disguised As Candy

Show Host Jimmy Kimmel attacked Republican Georgia Senate Candidate Herschel Walker on his show on Tuesday night for telling parents to be aware of fentanyl-laced candy, calling the warning a “war on Halloween.”

Kimmel showed a clip during the show of Walker warning parents to be “very viglant” when taking their kids out on Halloween because “China and Mexico are dressing fentanyl up to look like candy.” Kimmel seemingly denied the severity of fentanyl-laced candies, calling the notion “the new right-wing scare story right now, Mexico sneaking fentanyl in candy bars” from a man “who couldn’t locate Mexico and China on a map of only Mexico and China.”



Kimmel took a personal shot at Walker, saying that Walker is unsure if kids showing up at his house “want candy or child support,” alluding to the former NFL runningback’s illegitimate children. “Of course he cares about the children of America,” Kimmel went on to say. “Half of them are his.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sent out a release Aug. 30 about a trend of disguising brightly-colored fentanyl as candy to target younger people. The DEA found fentanyl in forms such as pills, powder, and blocks that resemble sidewalk chalk. The dangerous opioid is the leading killer of Americans aged between 18 and 45, according to the DEA disclaimer.

“The men and women of the DEA are relentlessly working to stop the trafficking of rainbow fentanyl and defeat the Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for the vast majority of the fentanyl that is being trafficked in the United States.” DEA Administrator Anne Milgram stated in the release.

This isn’t the first time Kimmel has mocked fentanyl concerns during his show. “Look out for those ‘fentanyllo-waifers’ in the Halloween baskets,” he said in late September in response to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel detailing how close to 2,000 pounds of fentanyl were shipped over in September alone.
