Georgia U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker (R) slammed former President Barack Obama (D) late this week after the former president said that Walker was not fit for office.

Obama made the remarks during a stump speech Friday for U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), who is trailing Walker in the polls for the upcoming election, saying that Walker is a “celebrity that wants to be a politician.”

“Now there are a lot of young people here, yes, that makes me excited. Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player,” Obama said. “In college, he was amazing. One of the best running backs of all time. But here is the question: Does that make him the best person to represent you in the U.S. Senate? Does that make him equipped to weigh in on the critical decisions about our economy and our foreign policy and our future?”

“By the way, the opposite is true, too. You may have liked me as president, but you wouldn’t want me starting at tailback by the dogs,” he said. “I mean, can you imagine my slow, old skinny behind getting hit by some 300 pound defensive tackle who runs a 4.6 40 (yard dash)? You would have to scrape me off the field. No, I can’t. No, I can’t. I am good at a lot of things, but that would not be one of those things that I am good at.”

Walker responded to Obama’s remarks while on the campaign trail Saturday morning, saying that Obama needed to “sit this one out.”

“President Obama was here last night. He said I’m a celebrity. He got that one wrong, didn’t he? I’m not a celebrity, I’m a warrior for God,” Walker said. “He got something else wrong, too. Remember two years ago, he told us to vote for Joe Biden, didn’t he? He got that one wrong, did he not? He’s lost twice to Georgia already, hasn’t he, so I think he probably needs to sit this one out.”

“I’m sorry to tell former President Obama, I’m sorry, I’m gonna pray for him,” Walker added. “I’m gonna pray for him because he needs some help. He needs some help because he got with the wrong horse. Senator Warnock is the wrong horse. You know he can’t do the job, and it’s time for him to leave. So don’t let the door hit your butt as you walk out of there.”
