Herschel Walker is known for his impressive athleticism, which helped him become a great football player, bobsledder, sprinter, and mixed martial artist. While he is now 56 years old, and isn’t in the shape he used to be in, he still has the same “fire in his belly.”
It seems as though far-left CNN anchor Don Lemon was on the receiving end of Walker’s rage when the CNN host attacked pro-Trump musical artist Kanye West. Lemon, and political commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer slammed West in a recent segment.
“He’s the token Negro of the Trump administration,” Setmayer tacked on. Similar things continued to be said, with Lemon laughing in between, encouraging the behavior. Walker wasn’t happy with the behavior of the CNN personalities, so he took to Twitter, calling for the network to cut ties. He wrote, “Went to bed appalled over donlemon despicable behavior laughing at TaraSetmayer and Bakari_Sellers awful remarks about Kanye West’s visit with @realDonaldTrump!! Woke up wondering why CNN doesn’t take all three off the air?
Setmayer decided to answer his tweet writing, “Bless your heart. You want to silence me because I expressed a different opinion than yours? Because I called out Kanye for what he is? Uninformed!I’m an actual conservative, who’s worked on policy advancing those principles for 20+yrs. I’ll never be a shill for Trump.” Bless your heart.

Clearly, her comment about not being a “shill for Trump” was a knock on Kanye. Walker had another response to Setmayer. He took to Twitter again, this time writing, “No …TaraSetmayer, anyone that is African American with an opinion different than yours, you want to call them out by using the N-word and donlemon is laughing?? To me that’s bullying and shameful!”

The Wild Card writes, “Of note, this is hardly the first time Walker has taken a pro-Trump stance in public. He lambasted NFL anthem protesters back in November 2017 while calling on everyone to ‘respect the White House.’” In November, Walker stated, “Guys, let me tell you this — our flag is very special, and black lives matter, but what we should do is go to Washington after the season and protest there instead. We have young men and women fighting for the flag. And we have to respect the White House.”
