Can anyone guess why Sheriff David Clarke is a favorite card in the Fox News "Condemn Obama Rolodex"?

Clarke was his typical, mendacious self on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy. Doocy showed a clip from Chris Wallace's interview yesterday where President Obama said that America

is the envy of the world. This could be our century....if we seek compromise between the two political parties.

Of course, the response from Clarke was projection.

Clarke performed his usual stand up routine, lying about the Obama economy, foreign policy successes and of course, the whole Black Lives Matter thing is unwarranted because all members of law enforcement always behave commendably.

Clarke said Obama is disconnected from reality, and that he came into office with three objectives: Destroy American Exceptionalism, Obliterate the United States Constitution, and Destroy the Republican Party.

But isn't the Republican Party doing an awesome job destroying their brand all by themselves? You'd think Fox would find a way to spin that success.

Oh, and way to set aside partisanship, Fox!

And then we get this County Sheriff's opinion on the international standing of the United States of America. No, really:

We're not respected on the world stage - Putin doesn't respect him.

Because the respect of Vladimir Putin is what we need to move forward to Fascist Kum-Ba-Ya?

Obviously, Clarke is a regular on Fox because they can hold up a Black uniformed officer who spouts the same disingenuous and unhinged Obama-hate as the rest of the GOP-TV crew.

Every single time he appears it's a sure sign the propagandists at Fox are desperate.

Can you help us out?
