Quote of the day – Herschel Walker

Walker says he’s known Trump for nearly four decades … and has never once experienced a racist act from him.

I watched him treat the janitors, security guards, and waiters the same way he would treat a VIP. He made them feel special because he knew they were. He understands that they are the people who make this country run. They clean. They cook. They build. They drive. They deliver. He told me, ‘Herschel, make an effort to get to know people. Remember their names.’ That stuck with me.

It hurts my soul to hear the terrible names that people call Donald. The worst one is ‘racist,’” Walker continued. “I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist. People who think that don’t know what they are talking about. Growing up in the deep south, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump. … He keeps right on fighting to improve the lives of black Americans and all Americans. He works night and day. He never stops. He leaves nothing on the field. Some people don’t like his style… the way he knocks down obstacles that get in the way of his goals. People on the opposing team didn’t like when I ran over them either. But that’s how you get the job done.

    His last line tickled me. “People on the opposing team didn’t like when I ran over them either. But that’s how you get the job done.”

    After watching a lot of the speeches last night, I sent a number of them to my email list. This one by Mr. Walker and Mr. Alvarez’s speech were among them. Both of them touching and truthful.

    The domestic and international Left is composed of thousands of joyless people who seem happy to inflict harm on others. These two men are overcomers and we all benefit from and are blessed by their achievements and examples.
