Former NFL superstar Herschel Walker epitomizes why the left reacts so fiercely to black Americans thinking for themselves.
The former athlete is a vocal President Donald Trump supporter and as a black man, he offers an undeniable counter to the Democratic narrative on race, as seen over the weekend when he pushed back against House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C.
Taking the president’s words out of context, Clyburn tried to shame black men for casting a vote for Trump by claiming he called a black woman a dog, but Walker was not about to let the lawmaker get away with it.
“I’m going to pray for you as well because you took the president a little bit out of context, which is okay because the Democrats have been doing that for a long time just to get a vote and I think that’s what you’re doing right now,” he said in a video shared online.
Well James @WhipClyburn, I saw you on @FoxNews talking to @marthamaccallum & @BretBaier. I will pray for you cause you seem highly upset! @realDonaldTrump @TheLeoTerrell @TimScottSC @MariaBartiromo pic.twitter.com/enQWXeYrBg

Walker told the 80-year-old Democrat that he was taught to respect his elders and he thanked Clyburn for praying for him, but reminded the lawmaker that when it comes to “systemic racism,” he has been in office a long time — 27 years.
“Thank you for praying for me,” Walker said. “That’s the first time I really have heard a Democrat — anyone from the Democratic Party — talk about praying for anybody or Jesus or God, or anything like that.”
He was responding to Clyburn appearing on Fox News and suggesting that Trump is a racist because he referred to former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog” after she turned on him.
“I’m the father of three black women, I am the son of a black woman,” Clyburn said. “If any black man can go in front of a polling place and cast a vote for a man who referred to a black woman as a dog on national television, I’m going to have to pray for them. I will have to pray for them.”
President Trump used the term in a tweet responding to Omarosa being fired by then-White House chief of staff Jim Kelly.
The tweet is seen here:
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

Clyburn also told hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum on the “Democracy 2020 Election Preview Special” that the only way Democratic nominee Joe Biden could lose on Tuesday would be “for voter suppression to be successful.”
This being the latest indication that Democrats are seriously worried about the level of support Trump has within the black community and the overall turnout for Biden.
Congressman James Clyburn is already claiming voter suppression…which means Democrats are very worried about turnout for Biden
