On Thanksgiving Day, former Dallas Cowboys running back Herschel Walker posted a short video on his Twitter account where he wished everyone a happy holiday. But, he also shared strong criticisms of anyone who doesn’t “put America first.”
Walker routinely shares clips of his thoughts on Twitter. Additionally, he often films the videos following his workouts like he did on Thursday.
“I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving,” the former Heisman trophy winner said in the video’s introduction.
However, Walker quickly changed tone. He talked about the “crazy rules” some states have implemented for the holiday because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many governors are requiring citizens to only gather in small groups on Thanksgiving. He told his followers not to “lose the faith” if they can’t see their family this year.
Next, the running back went on to share a harsh message for those that he says do not put our country first.
“I also want to say, anyone that don’t want to put America first, it’s terrible. I love America,” Walker said firmly. “And so many other patriots love America as well.”
Finally, Walker touched on the 2020 presidential election. He is a well-known conservative and longtime friend of President Donald Trump. In fact, Walker went on to say that if anyone tampered with the voting process, that people will go to jail for their crimes.
“Don’t you worry about it. Like I said, just have faith,” he said. “Because the people that decided to mess around in our election, some people may go to jail.”
Walker Recently Shared Advice Before Georgia’s Runoff Elections
Previous to Georgia’s runoff elections, Walker posted a message telling his more than 420,000 followers to “fight for America.”
“Let’s fight for America and fight to preserve our Constitution!” he tweeted Monday.
Walker also encouraged his followers to get out and vote in the runoff elections. In addition, he once again implied that the presidential elections suffered from fraud, but said the runoff elections will be free of illegal votes.
“I want to encourage everyone that can vote in Georgia legally to vote. Those that can not vote legally, just try it,” Walker said. “I think it’s gonna be a little bit different this time. So let’s get this right this time people, and let’s vote.”
