As I reported previously, the desperate Democrats pulled out Barack Obama to help them in their flagging races in Georgia. Stacey Abrams is way behind Gov. Brian Kemp in a rematch for Georgia governor and Herschel Walker was up five points on Raphael Warnock in the most recent poll from Rasmussen.
Obama aimed at Herschel Walker in a bizarre attack, saying Walker was a great football player, but what did he have to offer as a candidate? Obama made an analogy, saying you wouldn’t want him to fly the plane if you needed to fly. He also claimed Walker was a “celebrity who wants to be a politician.”
But Walker is a son of Georgia who went to school in the state, he wants to work for Georgia and when he speaks, he comes across as a genuine person to the people in the state. That’s why he is connecting with the voters.
Walker skewered the heck out of Obama in a hilarious and honest four-and-a-half-minute response that just laid Obama out. Notice: no notes, no teleprompter, and no closed-captioning required — just real talk.
“President Obama was here last night. He said I’m a celebrity. He got that one wrong, didn’t he? I’m not a celebrity, I’m a warrior for God. He got something else wrong, too. Remember two years ago he told us to vote for Joe Biden, didn’t he? He got that one wrong, did he not? He’s lost twice in Georgia already, hasn’t he, so I think he probably needs to sit this one out.”
Walker then took on the pilot analogy, saying Obama said he wouldn’t hire Walker to be a pilot. “I wouldn’t hire him [Obama] to be a pilot either” Walker declared to great laughs. Then he said Obama would probably want him on his debate team after Walker so handily dispatched Warnock in the debate. Gas prices are up, crime is up, and the border is wide open, Walker said. “They’re destroying this country.” He laughed that they don’t “even know the definition of a woman yet.”
“Where has he been?” Walker asked about Obama as everything has gotten worse under Biden. “He’s been in his nice house, hasn’t he? I haven’t seen him. Did he bring any cheaper gas? Did he bring any cheaper groceries? So what did he come here to do?” Obama came to pump Warnock, Herschel said, but Warnock’s problem is he needs to pick being a senator or a minister because he’s “not good at either one of them.”
Walker explained that Obama hadn’t done right by Americans, neither he nor Warnock wanted to do the job that needed to be done. They didn’t want to “get dirty” to get the work done. But Walker said he would pray for Obama because he got with the “wrong horse” with Warnock. He declared it time for Warnock to leave and “don’t let the door hit your butt as you’re walking out of there.”
Democrats trying to save John Fetterman by comparing him to Herschel Walker are not only dishonest about Fetterman, but they haven’t been listening to Walker. This may be one of the best straight-ahead speeches I’ve heard during this campaign season and he took apart the great narcissist in the process.
