On Tuesday afternoon, GOP advocate and former NFL great Herschel Walker took to Twitter to tell former President Barack Obama to think about what type of legacy he wants to leave behind.
The former Dallas Cowboys running back shared a video with his Twitter followers pondering Obama’s legacy. He even went as far as to say that Obama may want to distance himself from presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“I’m always thinking and I was thinking about former President Obama and what legacy you want to leave behind. With everything happening right now with Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, I wanted to say that to be selling favors from the White House is not a good thing,” Walker said in the video. “Maybe you didn’t know about that. And maybe you want to distance yourself from Joe. Maybe that was the reason you didn’t want to support him at the very beginning.”
“And at this point right now, [you’re] the first Black president that everyone can look up to. I don’t want to have an asterisk behind my very first Black president,” Walker concluded.
Walker Recently Blasted Biden Over His ‘Insulting’ Town Hall Response
Last week, presidential candidate Joe Biden joined a live town hall meeting on ABC. One particular remark to a young African-American man’s question seemed to ruffle Walker’s feathers.
According to Walker, Biden’s nonresponse was “insulting” to the town hall attendee who asked Biden about a previous statement he made. In fact, Biden claimed that if an African-American has trouble deciding between him and President Trump they “ain’t Black.”
“Besides ‘you ain’t Black’, what do you have to say to young Black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that fails to protect them?” the young man asked Biden during the live show. Biden responded that he had spent his Senate career making the criminal justice system more equitable for African-Americans. Additionally, he added that the U.S. must put Black Americans “in a position to gain wealth.”
On Friday, Walker joined FOX News’ “The Story” and criticized the former vice president’s response.
“It’s insulting, very insulting that he didn’t answer the question,” Walker said to host Jon Scott. “Let’s look at his record: Since 1976, almost every crime bill that’s been written, Biden has some affiliation with it.”
In addition, the former Heisman Trophy winner said that Trump already enacted parts of Biden’s plan for African-Americans.
“I’m not sure what he is going to do. But he’s not good at telling the truth right now because he’s had 47 years to correct it” Walker explained. “Wake up, America. Prison reform, done by Donald Trump. The Historic Black Colleges’ [funding] – which he mentioned – also was done by Donald Trump. [Biden] had a chance to do that.”
