Sad: Herschel Walker Says He Lost Friends Over Respectful RNC Speech

( Herschel Walker, the legendary NFL player who defended President Donald Trump against accusations of racism during the Republican National Convention, told USA Today Sports that he has lost friends for standing up to the lies.

Speaking to the sports news outlet, Walker expressed his disappointment at how easily people abandon their friends and loved ones over political disagreements.

“In society today, if you’ve got a Black friend, oh, jeez, you’re like king,” Walker told the outlet. “But not one time has (Trump) asked me to speak for him. I don’t even think he knew I was going to speak this time. I’m the one that asked.”

In his speech at the R NC, Walker explained how he has had a “deep personal friendship” with Donald Trump for 37 years, and that people telling him he has had a deep relationship with a “racist” for so long is hurtful.

If you missed his speech, you can watch it below. He told plenty of stories about President Trump, how he taught him family should always come first, and his behavior after purchasing a football team. He explained how he got to know the team, learned everything he could, and then set about improving it based on what he had learned.

Walker said that Trump has used that same technique while in office.

“Losing friends has been a big cost,” he said during the USA Today Sports interview. “I lost some friends, and that’s what’s so strange about it. How could in a country like America you disagree with someone that you now want to injure that person or you just don’t want to talk to them no more? Where did it get that you become a country like that?”

Good question. Plenty of Americans are probably wondering the same thing. That’s likely why a new study from CloudResearch in New York suggests that some 12% of Trump supporters are so terrified of being attacked that they won’t even tell pollsters they support him.

“I love the Lord Jesus Christ and when I start seeing the Democratic Party, and I want to say ‘the other party,’ when I start seeing them not want to talk about God and removing God, and then I saw  the BLM burning a cross and also burning the Holy Bible and burning a flag, and that’s not something I want to be a part of,” he said. “I’m not that.”
