If there’s one person that liberals hate almost as much as Donald Trump, it’s Sheriff David Clarke. This outspoken badass is always at the helm calling out the left’s antics, and pulls no punches when it comes to exposing the corruption going on in our country no matter who happens to be president. Now liberals’ heads are spontaneously exploding across America today, after Trump just hired the sheriff in a key position within his administration.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. will leave office next month to accept a federal appointment as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
He will work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.
“I’m looking forward to joining that team,” Clarke said Thursday afternoon on the Vicki McKenna talk show on 1130 WISN Radio.
Clarke said one of his responsibilities would be to “take complaints of shortcomings in the Department of Homeland Security.”
“They feel like they’re being ignored,” Clarke said of his counterparts in local law enforcement.
The position of assistant secretary does not require Senate confirmation.
Clarke has said in the past that it would be difficult to turn down a job offer from President Donald Trump if he was asked to join the administration.
Clarke will work for Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general.
The department was created in the wake of 9/11. The department’s duties range from counter-terrorism to enforcing immigration laws.
Clarke said Thursday that he had informed Gov. Scott Walker of his decision to take the federal post and expected to advise Walker on the appointment of a successor to complete his term.
He would have been up for re-election in November 2018.
Liberals wasted no time curling up into fetal positions over the news, as they know that Homeland Security now had a hardened badass in charge who isn’t going to sit idly by as their cop-hating antics continue to deteriorate our national security. President Trump’s choice for Sheriff Clarke is such a complete 180 from the leadership that Obama put into place during his tenure as president, where he put Muslim terrorist and ISIS-supporting douchebag Mohamed Elibiary into a key position up at DHS, who then went on to white-wash any mention of Islam or Muslims in Homeland Security’s counter-terrorism training manuals, while at the same time praising ISIS over twitter and celebrating the “inevitable” return of the Muslim “caliphate.”
It’s so refreshing to finally have a president who truly loves this country and is sticking to his vow to “drain the swamp” while at the same time putting the most competent and loyal Americans into these key government positions. Given Sheriff Clarke’s incredible record for enforcing law and order through his decades of public service, there’s no doubt in my mind that he will do remarkable job up at DHS. You know that liberal snowflakes and cop-hating thugs are absolutely furious over this news!
Here’s further details from Politico last week about Clarke’s position at DHS, before his position was confirmed on Thursday by the White House:
The White House is considering David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, for a position at the Department of Homeland Security, three people familiar with the administration’s planning told POLITICO.
Clarke is in line to be appointed as assistant secretary at DHS’ Office of Partnership and Engagement, which coordinates outreach to state, local and tribal officials and law enforcement. The position does not require Senate confirmation.
A senior administration official cautioned it’s “not a done deal yet.”
Clarke, a longtime supporter of President Donald Trump, has long been rumored as a possible candidate for a job in the administration and met with Trump in November at Trump Tower. He also spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last year.
He has come under fire in recent days amid revelations about the case of Terrill Thomas, who died of dehydration last year at the Milwaukee County Jail after guards turned off the water in his cell.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, has said he won’t remove Clarke from office over Thomas’ death.
Clarke also has faced criticism for participating in a National Rifle Association-backed trip to Russia in 2015, where he and other members of the group’s delegation reportedly met with Dmitry Rogozin, one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s deputies. Rogozin was sanctioned by the U.S. government in 2014.
Clarke did not respond to requests for comment. A DHS spokesman declined to comment, as did a White House spokeswoman.
