Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke slammed President Barack Obama’s tweet following the shooting of two Ferguson, Mo., police officers on Thursday night’s The Kelly File on Fox News.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Sheriff Clarke said the president’s tweet is not being well-received by him or his fellow law enforcement officers.
That might score him point with hipsters, but it’s not going over real big with me and it’s not going over real big with the American law enforcement officer.
Kelly read a tweet that summed up the inconsistency from the White House regarding the Michael Brown case:
Mike Brown got a speech and forty DOJ investigators. Two police officers get a tweet.
Clarke told Kelly that Obama “took the lazy way out” by issuing a tweet.
He didn’t have the decency to put on a suit and go to the East Room or the Rose Garden and issue a heartfelt condemnation of what’s going on in these assaults against officers.
The sheriff told the Fox News host that he expects the nation’s authority figures to back the police when necessary and not undermine them.
But what we expect — and it’s all we expect, Megyn — is we expect that responsible people in this country back us in these situations. When we’re wrong, we’re wrong. But when we’re right, I expect them to come out in very strong language, indicate that and give us some sense that at least they have our backs in these situations and they’re not looking to indict based on emotional mob rhetoric or bring criminal charges or even slam our reputations.
Kelly noted that although Officer Darren Wilson was exonerated of all charges by the Department of Justice, President Obama was not forceful in acknowledging that verdict.
