Milwaukee's Sheriff Clarke continues to support Trump as the only candidate who can keep us safe.
Sheriff Clarke Continues To Be A National Embarrassment

Sheriff Clarke, the one black Trump surrogate who wears that ridiculous hat is back in the news while on his latest 7-city sweep trying to get his best friend, racist GOP Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, elected.

Clarke is not only a racist, sexist, hateful man, but he also can't even run his own prisons, with four inmates dying in custody in the last 6 months.. So clearly, a man who can't even run his "business" at home is the perfect mouthpiece for a failed businessman like Trump. Birds of a feather.

In an interview with the Daily Caller, the conservative news outlet run by Tucker Carlson, Sheriff Clarke said our country's survival depends on Donald Trump. Yes, that is what he said.

"I want to make it clear that I support Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States. Here's the biggest reason: I don't make this about people; this is about the survival of this Republic.

This is about a chance to break up that Washington cartel. [...] He gives us the only chance to stop this this transformation of America—this very disturbing transformation that we've been under this last seven-plus years under Barack Obama."

By transformation you mean healthcare for tens of millions, lowest unemployment rate in , passed Wall Street reform, took out Osama Bin Laden, saved the US auto industry, repealed "don't ask, don't tell", passed marriage equality, Iran nuclear agreement, improved school nutrition, expanded stem cell research....I could go on, but you get the idea. This list (and the hundreds of other things Obama has done) is the exact opposite of a "disturbing transformation."

Clarke seems to have little grasp of what our country is actually going through and instead of trying to educate himself, he has chosen to insulate his brain with that giant, stupid, tin foil lined hat. He appears to only be getting soundbites from the Trump campaign, as his recent interviews have shown.

His tweets recently have even crossed over into "Trump-speak" with one saying that Trump needs "all guns firing at" Hillary Clinton (thinly veiled but not really veiled assassination suggestion?) and another referring to Hillary Clinton as "Mrs. Bill Clinton."

Trump's puppet is right here, folks.

Can you help us out?
