Herschel Walker, born March 3, 1962, is a former professional American football player, bobsledder, sprinter, and mixed martial artist. He played college football for the University of Georgia, earned consensus All-American honors three times and won the 1982 Heisman Trophy.
Walker began his professional football career with the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League (USFL), before joining the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). In the NFL, he also played for the Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
In an interview several weeks ago, legendary running back, Herschel Walker said that clients are canceling his speaking gigs because of his relationship with Trump. However, he believes that President Trump is largely misunderstood. In fact, he knows from doing business with Donald Trump, before he was President Trump, that he is not in fact racist at all.
Herschel Walker has has a lot to say about President Donald Trump since he campaigned back in 2016. And to tell you the truth, Walker has more credibility speaking his opinion about Donald Trump before he was President than most people who want to open their mouths and have no history of experience working with or socializing with President Trump. “First of all, I’ve known Donald before he became ‘The Donald,’ and Donald is not a racist,” Walker said Saturday. “Just because you want to build a wall doesn’t make you racist.”
You might remember that Herschel Walker was also a contestant on season eight of Trump’s hit reality television show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Despite losing speaking money, Walker told TMZ that he would continue to support Trump’s run. You have to respect a man who stands up for what he believes in despite the backlash that comes along with supporting a friend and former business associate.
“I know for a fact that Donald Trump, who’s best for the job in those positions, is gonna be there to do it,” Walker said on NBC Sports Radio last Thursday. “It ain’t gonna be about Republican-Democratic. With him, it’s going to be about who’s best for that job.”
It reminds me a lot of President Trump running for President – he certainly did not have to stick his neck out there for all of us to help Make America Great Again. It would have bene a lot safer for Donald Trump to continue with his life as it was without becoming President of the United States and being called a racist. The same thing goes for the former Heisman Trophy Winner, Herschel Walker who is widely considered one of the best running backs to have ever played the game.
Legendary University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker made an appearance Monday on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend to talk about his school’s upcoming national championship game against the University of Alabama. He also made a number of comments about his friend and our President of the United States, Donald Trump, who will be attending tonight’s game.
Walker said Trump has been “getting a raw deal” with people “forgetting” about respecting the office. “[W]e voted for him to be president, and because of that, we have to respect him as our president,” Walker stated.
Herschel Walker has recently reported that he is losing a ton of speaking engagements due to backing President Trump. Who’s the fascist party now? This is unbelievably appalling, especially when you consider that there are athletes getting speaking events who don’t have clean records and then you have someone like Herschel Walker who is an upstanding citizen and probably never even got a personal foul on the field let alone a DUI or a domestic violence charge.
Herschel Walker is the only football player to have ever finished top 3 in the Heisman polls in each of his collegiate seasons. He is the only NCAA player who played only three years to finish in the top ten in rushing yards. Walker only played 3 years of college football before entering the NFL draft.
