Popular NFL star Herschel Walker sharply criticized former President Obama and current Democratic candidate Joe Biden during an interview with Fox News Radio’s “Fox Across America“ on Wednesday.
The criticism focused on the inconsistency between the Democrats’ speech regarding support for the African-American community.
He accuses the Obama administration of doing absolutely nothing for the black community, and commented on how the Obama administration dealt with the problems of the black community, saying: “I hear all the racial statements they are making today, and I think, ‘You were in office for eight years, what did you do to change anything? “You didn’t do anything to change anything for anybody,” Walker added, “so don’t go out there talking about it now because you had a chance as the most powerful man in the world, and you did absolutely nothing.”
Herschel Walker has also been named in the media recently for his statements against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and even pointing out his colleagues and teams who defend the movement without being able to justify their support in the least.
In a video posted on his Twitter account a week ago, he shared his thoughts with followers. He justified his confrontation with the BLM, claiming it’s an anti-American movement led by “trained Marxists.

“Finally I have AWAKENED… I’m shaking up America! As Maya said, when someone tells you who they are, you should believe them,” you can read in the message that accompanies the video for the Twitter post.
It also labels some of the media outlets as complicit in the BLM movement and its acts of violence.
As has happened to so many people, Walker said that he felt sympathy and representation for the BLM at first.
Still, as he delved a bit deeper into who the people behind the movement are and their true intentions, he decided not to be part of that group and publish his thoughts.
Walker said he “finally woke up” to what Black Lives Matter is after investigating its leaders.
In the same vein, in his video, he invited soccer players and teams, where the movement gained many supporters, to investigate who the people organizing the movement are, what their true intentions are, and then to reconsider their position on the issue.
In a friendly way, Walker called attention to the entire sports community, especially soccer, and emphasized that the BLM protests do not achieve the final goal they claim to seek and instead only lead to chaos and more fragmentation.
