NFL legend Herschell Walker laid into Democrat front runner Joe Biden after remarks in which the former Vice-President implied that black people who voted for Donald Trump weren’t actually black.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Famed running back Herschel Walker blasted presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Friday over remarks that Biden made that were widely deemed as bigoted.
During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” with co-host Charlamagne Tha God, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Biden’s remarks sparked widespread outrage from across the political spectrum and on multiple news networks, except for CNN, which downplayed Biden’s remarks and gave the racist comments minimal coverage on television.
“Wow,” Walker wrote. I just watched former Vice President @JoeBiden… Does he not understand that black and brown skinned people can think for themselves. You don’t determine who we vote for.”
Thank you Herschel! https://t.co/JbPC3TxhPo
