MSNBC contributor Elie Mystal called Walker a “negro” and said that Walker was just the candidate that Republicans wanted.
“Walker is going do what he’s told, and that is what Republicans like,” Mystal said. “That’s what Republicans want from their Negroes: to do what they were told.”
Mystal argued that Walker shows himself “exactly as a person who lacks independent thoughts, lacks an independent agenda, lacks an independent ability to grasp policies, and he’s just going to go in there and vote like Mitch McConnell tells them to vote.”
“A lot of people have been asking me to say something about the man on MSNBC that called me the N-word,” Walker responded to the situation.
My response to @MSNBC and the man who called me the N word. @ReverendWarnock and the left wing crazies believe America is a fundamentally bad country full of racist people. But you and I know this is a great country, full of good people. #gasen pic.twitter.com/JCDsQr19Jh

“Here’s what I gotta say about that: shame on MSNBC. And shame on him. I’m going to pray for both of them. Because they need Jesus.”
“When I saw what he said, it reminded me of the differences between myself and my opponents,” he continued.
“Senator Warnock and the left-wing crazies that believe that America is fundamentally a bad country, full of racist people,” Walker said.
“They want to divide us, turn us against each other. We have our problems, but we can solve them together.”
Mystal stated that the election would be close because of the Republican vote.
