I’m not sure about driving liberals nuts. Having played golf, I can tell you it’s more like a putt than a drive. I went golfing just last week and shot a 61. Of course, I did much better on the second hole. Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is a favorite of conservatives all across our country.
Clarke has accepted a job with the American First Action, (AFA) Super PAC. AFA’s mission is to support President Trump and to push his agenda. Clarke will be AFA’s senior advisor and spokesperson.
Brian O. Walsh, President of America First Action, said in a statement:
“David Clarke is an American patriot, and we are very proud to welcome him to America First. Having spent a lifetime in law enforcement—protecting and serving his community and fighting for justice and the Second Amendment—Sheriff Clarke doesn’t just believe in making America safe again; he’s devoted his life to it.”
Clarke says he is very pleased with his new job:
“It gives me the chance to do what I love most—promote President Trump’s agenda, including his fierce support for the American law enforcement officer, and ensure that the will of the American people who got President Trump elected is not derailed by the left or the self-serving Washington establishment.”
Clarke had been in negotiations with the Trump White House for a job at the DHS but rumors say current Chief of Staff John Kelly nipped it in the bud.
Sheriff David A. Clarke just lost out on yet another Trump administration job—and he has the president’s chief of staff to thank.
Officials in the West Wing tell The Daily Beast that Clarke had been in consideration for a White House post over the past seven weeks. But on Tuesday, the controversial former Milwaukee County lawman signed on with an outside group instead. He will serve as a spokesman and “senior adviser” for the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.
Four sources working in and close to the Trump White House said his failure to land a gig in the West Wing or at the Department of Homeland Security, where Clarke unsuccessfully sought a job earlier this year, was in large part the result of opposition from White House chief of staff John Kelly. Kelly led DHS until late July.
Clarke had resigned from his post as the sheriff of Milwaukee County last month and Politico spread fake news that Clarke would be joining the Trump administration, something the sheriff and his staff denied outright.
Clark is very outspoken and has been a Trump supporter from very early in his campaign and is considered one of the most loyal public figures Trump has. He has often been on various television programs promoting President Trump and his agenda. His new job is right up the same alley and should be a perfect fit for him.
