Former Georgia Bulldog legend Herschel Walker is running for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat. He’s the Republican nominee and the belief is he actually has a chance at unseating incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, despite a plethora of uncovered lies, exaggerations, disturbing accusations and bizarre campaign comments.
The race has been nip-and-tuck throughout the process, but many question Walker’s capacity for the job.
One person who questioned his political acumen is former POTUS Barack Obama. During a rally in Georgia late last week, Obama didn’t hold back on his opinion of Walker as a candidate, saying being a great athlete doesn’t qualify you to be in the political realm.
“Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player. But here’s the question: Does that make him the best person to represent you in the U.S. Senate? Does that make him equipped to weigh in on critical decisions about our economy and our foreign policy and our future?”
Obama is speaking truth, as Walker himself said he wasn’t the smartest guy as it pertains to his opponent Warnock. That could be why he only agreed to one debate the entire campaign.
Walker Fires Back At Obama
The former NFL All-Pro’s rebuttal came during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.”
In the midst of the interview, Walker made a claim that while he’s never met Obama personally, all the first Black president did was hang out with celebrities. Walker also lauded his own personal accomplishments, which is something he’s done with regularity during the campaign. In fact, the veracity of many of those accolades remains unconfirmed.

“He forgot to tell people I created one of the largest minority-owned food service companies in the United States of America, so I do sign the front of a check, which he’s probably never done except when he was in the White House.”
Walker continued …
“I created businesses, I sit on a public trade board. So those are things I’ve done outside of football. Put my resume against his resume — I put it up any time of the day and I think I’ve done well.”

To say he’d put his résumé up against a two-term POTUS, former U.S. senator from Illinois and the first and only African-American to sit in the Oval Office is delusional.
Walker’s Son Christian Recently Put Him On Blast
In October Walker’s son Christian went on a verbal attack against his dad, calling him a liar for not telling the truth about how many children he really has. Christian’s words were:
“He has four kids, four different women, he wasn’t in the house raising one of them, he was out having sex with other women. Do you care about family values?”
He also slammed his dad for alleged physical abuse that his mom confirms. He finished his rant with: “Wear a condom, damn.”
Before Walker can come for someone as distinguished as Barack Obama, he might tell the truth and not have his own flesh and blood put him on blast in the public eye.
