Ex-Sheriff Clarke Tells Reporter 'Fck You And The Horse You Rode In On'

He seems nice, doesn't he?
Ex-Sheriff Clarke Tells Reporter 'Fck You And The Horse You Rode In On'

Milwaukee ex-Sheriff David Clarke apparently has no reason to make nice with reporters anymore, now that he's a private citizen. Not that he was such a prince before, but now he's fully a part of the Trumpist "screw-you" culture which is overtaking the country.

When asked in email by Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter Daniel Bice about the costs for his private security detail at taxpayer expense, Clarke replied, "Fuck you and the horse you rode in on."

What a prince. Here's the full exchange.

It isn't like Clarke is a non-controversial person. While he was still Sheriff, an inmate died of thirst in his jail. He is a Trumpist in the extreme, he's a liar, and he apparently bought all of his medals on eBay.

But yeah, he feels perfectly justified in being a jerk, to which I raise my middle finger and gesture toward the horse he left outside the door. Bye now, David 'No One' Clarke. Have a nice life, you grifty jerk.
