Herschel Walker tells James Clyburn he took Trump out of context with latest criticism

Rep. Clyburn says he will ‘pray’ for Black Trump voters

House Majority Whip dismisses polls suggesting growing Trump support among African-American voters

Former NFL star Herschel Walker pushed back on House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., on Sunday after the latter said that President Trump called a Black woman a dog.

"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.

Clyburn had appeared on Fox News where he seemed incredulous that a Black man could vote for Trump after one of his comments. He appeared to be referring to Trump calling former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog."

"I’m the father of three Black women," Clyburn told Fox News hosts Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier. "I am the son of a Black woman. 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."

It's unclear which television appearance Clyburn was referring to, but Trump came under fire for a tweet in which he called her a "dog."

"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!" he said.
