Things are going badly for Sen. Raphael Warnock in Georgia. According to polls Warnock is trailing Republican candidate Herschel Walker, which is why his campaign called in some reinforcements, including Barack Obama.
Obama tried to dismiss Walker as a “celebrity candidate” who you wouldn’t trust to fly your plane:
Obama: "Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player… does that make him the best person to represent you?… let's say you're at the airport & you see Walker & you say, Hey, there's Herschel, Heisman winner. Let's have him fly the plane!" pic.twitter.com/ObyfIsOAEA

“Two years ago [Obama] told us to vote for Joe Biden didn’t he?” Perfect! Yes, and how’d that work out?
What a response from Herschel https://t.co/HLnFbMHDxj
