David Clarke: Depraved And Deplorable
December 24, 2016

Much like his hero Donald Trump, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is an attention whore. And just like Trump, Clarke favorite way of seeking that attention is to send out outrageous and vile tweets.

Clarke's latest venture of going beyond the pale came on Thursday, when he sent out this tweet:

clarke_obama_sandy_hook_tweet

Oh boy! Ain't that Clarke a regular cut up?!

But the gentle reader has probably noticed where Clarke crossed the line again. The picture he used of Obama is from when the president was speaking about the epidemic of gun deaths and the need for more sane gun control laws. When he started talking about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary where 20 grade school children and six teachers were murdered in cold blood.

Here is the video of Obama's speech. You can see the moment the screencap is taken at about the 1:05 mark.

For Clarke to exploit the tragedy of Sandy Hook, the fourth year anniversary was just a couple of weeks ago, and the high emotions that almost everyone else felt is beyond the pale and shows just how depraved and deplorable Clarke really is.
