David Clarke To Take Trump Administration Job

Politico reports:

David Clarke, the controversial outgoing sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wis., is expected to take a job in the Trump administration, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

Clarke resigned as sheriff on Thursday. A regular presence on Fox News, Clarke has become a well-known figure in conservative circles in recent years. He is also an avowed supporter of President Donald Trump, and he spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last year.

But he has come under fierce criticism amid a series of deaths in the Milwaukee County prison, including that of Terrill Thomas, who died of dehydration last year after guards turned off the water in his cell. Trump has been one of Clarke’s most vocal cheerleaders, and even promoted his book on Twitter earlier this month.

    If you support trump you are a FUCKING NAZI.

    • Daveed_WOW

      They are both nazis. Clark murdered a prisoner in his care. That is the Trumpers’ idea of tough policing.

      • Just Noh

        4 since april, actually

        • Daveed_WOW

          I only have obscene words in response to that information. Black shirt.

            Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family!!!
            On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $8752 this last four weeks.. Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve had.. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it >>>http://GoogleFinancialJobsCash124TopGreen/GetPay$97/Hour…….

      • kaydenpat

        Yep. “Rough them up” is Trump’s advice to cops on handling arrestees.

        • don

          Or anyone disagreeing with him in any way. Remember him exhorting thugs to ‘rough up’ protesters at his ‘rallies’. Filthy stinking bag of orange sh*t.

    • Uncle Mark

      But will they let Clarke attend the KKK meetings?

      • Todd20036

        Yup, if only to show they aren’t racists.

          “You know who you remind me … that kid on South Park. Ever watch that? Great show. But that one kid… what’s his name… you remind me of him” – Trump to Clarke

          • Reality.Bites

            Token?

          • MT YVR

            YAY… someone got my reference. YAY!

            😛

          • Reality.Bites

            Honestly though, only Token if he’s viewing purely by race.

            Going on personality everyone in the Trump administration is a Cartman or a Mr. Garrison. (Comment made without having watched the most recent season of South Park. My tolerance for Trump-related humour at the time was very low.

          • MT YVR

            In the context of what does a black man have to do in a Trump administration my answer is : first and foremost be a token.

            The most important thing to them will be that. No matter how much Clarke emulates, absurdly, a White Supremacist stance as a black man he will only ever be a token to them.

            Clarke himself is a whole other thing. It’s just the “do you REALLY think you’re getting here for any other reason than you’re a fucking token?” head tilt this article induces.

        Under those white sheets, no one will know.

      • Nowhereman

        I don’t think he knows that he’s black.

        • don

          Reminds me of Dave Chappelle’s skit about the black KKK guy

      • DumbHairyApe

        Sure, he hates black and brown people as much as Trump does.

    • Todd20036

      Yup. Even Godwin admitted as such. Yes, THAT Godwin.

      • shellback

        By fortuitous circumstances, I never subscribed to Godwin. I call a nazi when I see a nazi and don’t need a law, or lack thereof so to do.

        • don

          But there are good people on both sides

  • HZ81

    Secretary of Dress-Up.

    “I’m a cowboy!”

  • kelven

    Great! He can go down on the Trumptanic with the rest of the sleazy crew.

  • Treant

    I think we figured this.

    But it also indicates what Trump is down to. Clarke is not…well, he’s not competent, intelligent, thoughtful, or anything else, really.

    • S1AMER

      Aren’t those the requirements for working in the Trump administration?

      • Treant

        Pretty much. Plus, he’s not white, so they’ll treat him poorly.

        • Todd20036

          I’m good with that.

      • David L. Caster

        Trump doesn’t want anybody around him that is perceived to be smarter than Trump himself.

        • Reality.Bites

          Is that why there’s no official White House cat or dog this time?

          • David L. Caster

            Almost certainly.

          • Beagle

            Also, no self-respecting cat or dog would want to be.

    • Carl

      It was either this or he had a dead girl in his basement.

  • Karl Dubhe

    He’ll do ‘great’ work there. I’m sure…

  • Pat Padrnos

    Well……if this is true I am very sorry. Trump does seem to attract very questionable people to his administration. Let us hope this is false. This man is very sick.

  • Jacob

    I smell a pardon!

    • Bluto

      ah yes, the smell of a concentration camp burning at 120 degrees.

  • MikeBx2

    You’d have to be really nuts to climb on board a sinking ship. Clarke certainly fits the bill.

  • David L. Caster

    This will not end well.

    • BearEyes

      plan ahead.
      with Clarke visiting Russia when Flynn and Stein did, let’s hope Mueller has that on his radar too

      • David L. Caster

        I strongly suspect that it is on his radar.

          Those iconic photos of the mutilated corpses of Mussolini and his mistress hanging upside down outside an Italian Esso gas station, and the photo of Goebbels’ crispy corpse laid out on the Reichsgarten grounds (above Hitler’s bunker where he and Eva Braun committed homicide-suicide) in Berlin could make for a warning graphic entitled: “This is how fascism ends, and it isn’t pretty.”

    Damn, and I was hoping there was something that would keep him out of public office forever. Now just to work out what his job is going to be.

  • bkmn

    He could face serious issues if he has to be confirmed. If he doesn’t he will have to deal with a hell of a lot more scrutiny than he was used to in his little rats nest.

  • AtticusP

    That’s nice.

    With Halloween coming up, you can never have too many people who like to play dress-up.

    No one could make this shit up; it’s wilder than “House of Cards.” If Clarke has to work in D. C., however, he is dead meat.

  • Lazycrockett
    • Halou

      Wouldn’t surprise me if his ties to Russia are why Trump is hiring him.

    • TexasBoy

      Which really begs the question…what was a Sheriff from Milwaukee doing in Russia? I mean, there is seriously now business reason for a US Sheriff to be there.

  • Todd

    Clarke will be in charge of the Department of the KKK, Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists.

      Does this mean he will be getting a state, and a federal pension?

      • bzrd

        someone needs to bring charges against him at the state level so he loses that pension then he has to work a certain amount of time to get a federal pension

    • Friday

      Clarke is of course an utter lunatic, you know.

      • ETownCanuck

        Well, there is that I suppose.

  • jimbo65

    So if charges are filed against him for the way he ran his jail, will he be waiting for his pardon

        Oh yeah Pence gets a pardon and Pence pardons me,thats it.

    • Bryan

      “What would Trump’s army do if he were compelled to leave but refused to graciously comply?
      “Trump is playing an endgame. In the best-case scenario, these die-hards are future customers; in the worst, they are future confederates.”

      • Reality.Bites

        Hopefully Trump’s a better negotiator when it comes to saving his life than he is in other things.

        He is an enemy of the United States of America, its independence and its values as expressed in the Constitution. People think of Benedict Arnold as a traitor, and that wasn’t even to a country that existed at the time. Trump is a far greater traitor than Arnold.

        Saddest part is he didn’t even betray his country for a cause. Nor, really, did he do it for great wealth. Despite his bluster, in an era of Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, etc., we know what real self-made wealth can be like.

        If he wants to be allowed to live the rest of his life in anything resembling freedom, he needs to retire gracefully from all forms of public life.

      • Friday

        They forgot future scapegoats, they forget what kind of ‘businessman’ this pathological narcissist is, and how many people he’s already shitcanned rather than take responsibility or do work. Hence Breitbart headline earlier, pretending he’s ‘being held hostage.’ It’s to preserve the hater Trumpian ‘brand’ despite everything he touches presently turning to ashes and shit.
