This week, President Biden urged Republican Senate candidates Herschel Walker and Dr. Mehmet Oz to leave their positions on the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition or face removal.
The two candidates were nominated to the council under former President Trump in 2018.
“Clearly, Joe Biden can’t be around anyone who doesn’t completely fall in line with his fear-mongering authoritarian one-size-fits-all COVID handling. I am proud of my service and will not resign,” Oz said in his video.
Walker, who is running in Georgia, took his comments over to Twitter to fire back at the President.
“President Biden is so scared about us beating Raphael Warnock that he has asked me to resign from my unpaid position on the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition,” Walker tweeted Thursday. “I’m not a quitter so you are going to have to fire me.”
Even his son, Christian, had something to say about it.
According to CNN, individuals on the Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition are considered special government employees who are barred from partisan elections under the Hatch Act.
Walker is the heavy favorite to win the Republican Senate primary in Georgia and take on Warnock.
Herschel Walker was one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the NFL. The Heisman Trophy winner for the University of Georgia ran for 8,225 yards and 61 touchdowns in his NFL career. He also caught 512 passes for 4,859 receiving yards.
