Herschel Walker was a great football player, one who led the Georgia Bulldogs to their last national championship in 1980, before the school finally toppled mighty Alabama this past season. 

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner would go onto NFL glory starring for the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants. The two-time All-Pro, turned in his cleats for suits and controversial political takes, and now he’s running as a Republican for a U.S. Senate seat in his native Georgia. 

Walker will run against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, whose 2020 candidacy got a boost from league-wide support by the WNBA, which wanted to see incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler ousted. 

Warnock is a formidable opponent, which will be one large roadblock to the seat for Walker. Also, when you run for such a prestigious political position, scrutiny of your personal life may reveal details that you don’t want people to know.

 

 

Walker, who has only ever mentioned his two children (22-year-old son Christian and a 13-year-old son) recently mentioned another son (10 years old) and daughter in her 20s. 

In an interview with New York Times, Walker had this to say about the newfound information.

“I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed,’ they’re my kids. I support them all and love them all. I’ve never denied my children.

“Saying I hide my children because I don’t discuss them with reporters to win a campaign? That’s outrageous. I can take the heat, that’s politics — but leave my kids alone.

 

 

Walker has a laundry list of fabrications on his résumé as it pertains to him seeking political office. Walker falsely claimed to have graduated college, which he didn’t, and even said he did so in the top one percent of his class.

The former Georgia star also said he once worked for the FBI located in Quantico, Virginia, a suburb of Washington D.C. But he’s still the native son in Georgia because of what he did on the gridiron, and that right there is enough for many GOP voters to turn a blind eye and allow him to possibly become a U.S. senator.

Is Walker A Hypocrite? Made Comments Made About Fatherless Black Households

In a September 2020 interview Walker spoke about of fatherless households and even apologized for them.

“I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem.”

 

In a December 2019 interview with Diamond and Silk, the controversial Walker made the claim that he believes men needed to go into African-American neighborhoods, and, as he put it become “fathers to those fatherless” children who reside in those particular domains.

This makes Walker look like a hypocrite, with two brand new children appearing after seeing him only talk about having two for years, another of the many lies he’s told is exposed. 

And while we don’t know the extent of his relationship with the two newly revealed children, that’s even more reason he has no place to make comments about the fathers in the African-American community.

Walker Was A Stalwart On The Gridiron

Walker was a football alien. He played a few seasons as one of the faces of the new USFL after college, before joining the Cowboys. Walker played 13 NFL seasons, rushing for 8,225 yards and 61 touchdowns. He had 512 receptions for 4,859 yards. He also returned 215 kicks for 5,084 yards and two more touchdowns, bringing his career total yardage to 18,168 all-purpose yards.

In three USFL seasons Walker also tallied 5,500 yards rushing and 54 touchdowns. In an August interview with Pioneer Press, Walker said this about his career.

“If you look at my stats, I should be in the Hall of Fame. My stats show that I produced.”

The stats definitely don’t lie, but it seems Walker does often. Some would say he’s the perfect politician.
