Walker fires back at Obama: ‘Put my resume with his resume’

Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker hit back Wednesday at former President Obama, who said that being a good football player doesn’t mean he’s qualified to be a lawmaker.

Walker, a former NFL quarterback, Brian Kilmeade told “Fox & Friends.” that he never met Obama, but if he did, that meant he was a celebrity “because all he did was hang out with famous people.”

“He forgot to tell people that I founded one of the largest minority-owned food service companies in the United States of America, so I’m signing the front of the check, which he probably never did except when he was in the White House,” Walker said.

“I created companies, I sit on the public trade board. Those are the things I did outside of football. Put your resume up against his resume — I put him up any time of the day and I think I did well,” Walker added.

At a rally in Georgia on Friday, Obama said during a campaign stop for Walker’s opponent, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D), that while Walker had a laudable football career, that did not translate into success in Congress.

“Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a real football player,” Obama said. “But here’s the question: Does that make him the best person to represent you in the US Senate? Does that make him ready to weigh critical decisions about our economy and our foreign policy and our future?”

Kilmeade also asked Walker about how he is handling a series of recent controversies surrounding his campaign, including reports that the Republican candidate paid for several abortions for former partners, but has maintained a strong anti-abortion stance on the campaign trail.

“I’m moving on,” Walker told Kilmeade. “Right now they’re going to try to throw everything at me. They have spent almost 100 million dollars against me so far. Right now the race is almost tied or I’m ahead which shows they don’t know how to spend their money, so stop spending our money.”

There have also been reports that Walker is the father of previously undisclosed children. Despite the controversy, he and Warnock are in one of the toughest races in the country.

A new Atlanta Journal-Constitution-UGA poll published on Monday found that Warnock and Walker were statistically tied at 45 percent.

The Georgia Senate race is one of several that could determine who controls the upper house next year. If there is no clear winner next week, the election will go into a run-off – which is how Warnock won the seat in 2020.
