The divisive official, elected four times, Milwaukee County’s top law enforcement official, Democrat Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., loves to stir up controversy in his hometown and on a national level.
And this Presidential election has seen its share of controversy – some of which Clarke himself has contributed to.
Wisconsin has been a hot bed of political fury for months and Clarke, a loud and loyal Donald Trump supporter made an appearance on a cable news show recently adding fuel to the fire. He tweeted his disdain for Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton. His tweet can easily perceived as a threat against her life.
The verified account of David A. Clarke, Jr. @Sheriff Clarke tweeted, “With @megynkelly tonight 9PM ET. All hands on deck. @realDonaldTrump needs all guns firing at Mrs. Bill Clinton right now.” His tweet received over 3,000 re-tweets.
This isn’t the first time that one of Sheriff Clarke’s tweets in support of Trump received heavy criticism. Several weeks ago, on Saturday October 14, Clarke tweeted “it’s pitchforks and torches time.”
Clarke has yet to respond to media about his comments on October 14.
