Although Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are polar opposite in experiences, life style and physical appearance, they share a unique unbreakable bond in loving America and an unapologetic trait for telling the truth, regardless of where the chips may fall.
And much like the Republican nominee Clarke’s remarks are usually “dead on” which makes him a formidable force within the conservative movement and a dreaded adversary within the liberal establishment, in that his insightful theories usually prove to be correct.
In a recent interview Sheriff Clark remarked that perhaps the reason why President Obama didn’t cut his vacation short or even hold a brief press conference in response to the devastation taking place within the flood-ravaged state of Louisiana might be there aren’t enough blacks being affected?
He continued suggesting that the suffering wasn’t perhaps sufficient enough for Obama to interrupt his golf games or cut short his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard.
Clarke let loose on social media to call out the hypocrites and the lack of response from Obama:

No doubt Clarke’s remarks are harsh, however not any harsher then Obama’s remarks about then President Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
Politics whether we like it or not, is all about perception, all about the optics, and witnessing Donald Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence rolling into Baton Rouge with an 18-wheeler full of emergency supplies, furthermore standing on-line and handing out those much-needed previsions to flood-stricken individuals, is indeed a powerful visual in contrast to Obama playing golf and Hillary attending countless fundraising events in la la land.
Many on social media responded to Obama’s lack of response though:
Do you agree with Sheriff Clarke’s assessment of why Obama is not showing much of a response to the La. floods?
