Fox News Quietly Ditched Trump-Loving Sheriff David Clarke

For years, Sheriff David A. Clarke was a fixture on Fox News, raging against Black Lives Matter, reportedly neglecting his duties as sheriff, and owning libs at every corner.

Nowadays, the firebrand Trump ally and ex-Milwaukee sheriff isn’t welcome on Fox anymore, The Daily Beast has learned.

The one-time Fox News regular, who was previously considered for different senior posts in the Trump administration, was effectively “banned” last year by the network, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

The decision was more sweeping than the “soft bans” that Fox has imposed on other guests or contributors, such as former White House official Sebastian Gorka, who was barred from Fox’s “hard news” programming but regularly appeared on opinion shows like Hannity.

And Fox News isn’t the only organization to apparently part ways with the demagogic lawman.

Two knowledgeable sources confirmed that Clarke is also no longer a senior adviser and spokesman for pro-Trump super PAC America First Action, where he landed in late 2017 after he resigned as sheriff and was repeatedly blocked from getting a position in the Trump administration. (For instance, Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon wanted to hire Clarke as a White House official, primarily to make TV appearances and take on members of the media.)

Clarke’s purpose for employment with America First was to act as a face of the organization, so his banishment from Fox complicated his role at the super PAC, barring him from one of the most influential arenas of right-wing, Trump-boosting media.

Speaking of, maybe Glenn Beck will give him a job.

18. Many of those must have been photo-shopped

Photos we saw in the Milwaukee papers during his time in office were not quite so littered, but he did seem to enjoy wearing a lot of decorations on his chest. Thankfully, we now have a fine, sane sheriff who is not an embarrassment.

He must have designed his own uniform, to include the braid on the sleeves!

He's wearing more Russian medals then Marshal Zhukov ever did!!!

17. Is that Goofy?

 

I mean, I know it's goofy but I also see Goofy. And a hotdog. And a rainbow pin. And maybe something from the United Federation of Planets (my phone isn't up to the needed zoom).

Methinks someone has been embellishing.

On the board alongside Steve Bannon and Eric Prince - a real basket of deplorables !
