Herschel Walker Slams Barack Obama

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Georgia Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, football legend Herschel Walker, has returned fire at former Democrat President Barack Obama after Obama questioned whether Walker was qualified to be a senator.

Walker stated that his resume is much more impressive than Obama’s and that the former president was “irrelevant.”

The former NFL superstar’s strong reaction came after last Friday Obama attacked him while campaigning in Georgia in favor of his opponent, incumbent Democrat U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock.

While he admitted that Walker’s football career had been remarkable, Obama insisted that he was not sufficiently qualified to be a member of the United States Senate.

“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?” the former president stated.

“Does that make him equipped to weigh in on the critical decisions about our economy and our foreign policy and our future?” Obama wondered.

Speaking on Fox News, GOP US Senate candidate Herschel Walker said he had never met the former Democrat president but described him as 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,” the NFP legend noted.

“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,” Walker stated further.

He insisted that he was firmly pro-life despite media reports alleging that he paid former girlfriends to have abortions. Walker, however, attributed such reports to political attacks seeking to smear him and defeat his U.S. Senate candidacy.

“Right now, they’re going to throw everything at me. They spent almost $100 million so far against me,” he declared.

“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,” Walker added.

A recent public opinion poll by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and UGA found that Walker and his Democrat opponent Warnock are tied at 45% support for each.

The results from their race could decide whether the Republicans or the Democrats get to control the U.S. Senate for the next two years.
