Herschel Walker Embarrasses Obama, ‘Put My Resume Against His’, Says Barack Is Irrelevant

Published on

Herschel Walker, the Georgia GOP Senate candidate hopeful hit back at former President Barack Obama, who questioned Walker’s qualifications as a lawmaker. Little does Barack know, the American people are sick of career politicians and “lawmakers”, and they are the very people that we don’t want in Washington.

Herschel made that point abundantly clear after Obama took a cheap shot at the former NFL great while campaigning for Raphael Warnock (D-GA) by suggesting that Walker was not qualified.

At a Georgia rally last Friday, campaigning for Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock, Obama said Walker had a commendable football career, but that is not enough to be a member of Congress.

“Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player,” said Obama. “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 the critical decisions about our economy and our foreign policy and our future?”

Walker, while defending his position, told “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade that he’s never met Obama and that the former president is irrelevant.

“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,” said Walker.

“I created businesses; I sit on a publicly traded 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,” added Walker.

According to Newsmax, Kilmeade pressed Walker on the series of controversies that have recently unfolded, including payment for abortions, although Walker maintains he is staunchly pro-life.

“Right now, they’re going to throw everything at me. They spent almost $100 million so far against me,” said Walker. “Right now, the race is virtually tied — or I’m in the lead, which shows that they don’t know how to spend their own money.”

According to Real Clear Politics, Walker and Herschel are nearly deadlocked in a U.S. Senate race that could literally decide the fate of the country. RCP shows Warnock in the lead by only 1.5 points projecting a race so close that a Dec. 6th Runoff may be on the horizon.

An Atlanta Journal-Constitution-UGA poll found Warnock and Walker tied at 45%.
