Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke slammed Barack Obama during a Fox News appearance on Wednesday, saying the outgoing president “rubbed white people’s nose in the stain of slavery.”
“We’re about 150 years removed from slavery. Nobody says, ‘Forget about it,’ but you have to be able to move on at some point,” Clarke told “Hannity” fill-in host Kimberly Guilfoyle. “He will not allow America to do that.”
Clarke continued: “Until he leaves the White House, we’re going to have to put up with this nonsense.”
The outspoken sheriff, a Democrat who has led law enforcement in Wisconsin’s biggest city since 2002, said Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the election proved that Americans are sick of the “racial divide” and want to “move on from it” — but Obama’s actions won’t allow people to move forward.
Clarke also criticized Obama for his comparative silence about the recent gang-related gun violence in the president’s hometown of Chicago, questioning why the president and groups such as Black Lives Matter don’t do anything about the recent spate of murders.
According to Fox News, there have been 3,904 murders in Chicago since 2009 when Obama took office. And the Chicago Tribune reported there have been a record 770 homicides so far this year, up from 492 last year.
“It’s unbelievable, it’s a war right here on our streets in our country,” Guilfoyle said.
