After what Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke just said, it’s a good bet that Al Sharpton won’t be inviting the sheriff over for Christmas dinner.
Sharpton has suddenly changed his tune about police officers being racist, hate-driven “roaches.” On his MSNBC show, the execution of two NYPD cops over the weekend was condemned by the civil rights activist — some would say “agitator” considering all of his provocative, inflammatory rhetoric through the years.
Appearing on “The Kelly File” Monday night, Sheriff Clarke blasted Al Sharpton as a “phony” and a “cartoon.” Commenting on Sharpton’s abrupt about-face in now praising the work of NYC police following the assassination of two of New York’s finest over the weekend, the outspoken lawman told Megyn Kelly:
“I don’t know why the media continues to put a camera and a microphone in front of his face.” Clarke said. “He doesn’t believe a word of what he said today – neither does anybody else.”
And speaking directly to the close relationship Sharpton enjoys with President Obama, Sheriff Clarke said:
“I would question the judgment of anybody in the United States of America that would hold counsel or take advice from Al Sharpton.”
As Western Journalism reported on Monday, Donald Trump — who claims to know Al Sharpton very well — called him a “professional con man” who has “gotten away with murder.”
