Sheriff Can't Wait Until Obama's Term Is Over
Sheriff David Clarke destroyed President Barack Obama’s last days in office with a blistering remark that captured the sentiments of many Americans.
Appearing on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” Monday night, Clarke addressed the fatal shooting of Orlando Police Sgt. Debra Clayton by a black man.
He mentioned that the mainstream media tends to spin stories like this by glossing over the fact that black men are now prone to shoot at law enforcement officers, a tactic that has gained popularity since the founding of groups such as Black Lives Matter.
“Thank God we only have 11 days left in his administration because he’s been an echo chamber for this anti-cop sentiment that has given rise to this,” Clarke said.
Clarke then went on the condemn Obama for interfering in matters that he knows little about. In this case, Clarke was referencing Obama’s effort to establish a task force that attempted to transform the profession of policing.
“He has no idea what it’s like to be a law enforcement officer and how fast these things can happen. He suggests that cops should engage in dialogue first. He suggests less than lethal options before they go to deadly force. How’d that work out for this Orlando police officer? She didn’t have a chance to engage in dialogue.”
In explaining how the situation in Orlando panned out, he said, “This is an example why sometimes, and it’s lawful to do this and it’s justifiable and articulable, you shoot first and you ask questions later.”

Sheriff Clarke has been one of the loudest voices of reason throughout Obama’s presidency. He is spot on when he claims that the president is responsible for spreading anti-cop rhetoric in the last few years.
And he’s just as right when he says we’ll be lucky to get him out of the White House.
