The Anti-Trumpers are blackballing NFL star Herschel Walker. Apparently he can’t get a speaking gig to save his life because of them. Check this out.
NFL Great Herschel Walker was one of the early Trump supporters out of the gate but now he says he is losing speaking gigs by anti-Trumpers who are blackballing him.
Walker, a running back for such teams as the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys, recently told gossip site TMZ he has had multiple speaking engagements canceled because hosts say they are worried he’ll attract anti-Trump protestors.
The retired football player was one of the celebrity contestants on season eight of Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice which aired in 2009 and has been a big fan of the real estate mogul ever since.
In an interview with NBC Sports Walker dismissed any chance that Trump was a racist.
I’ve seen [Trump] around people, I don’t know where he says those outlandish, crazy things. And people say that he’s racist. But I’ve never seen anything that [made me] consider Donald is a racist. Because of the things – he’s said those outlandish things about building a wall – that doesn’t mean you’re racist when you say things like that.
