Sheriff Clarke slams Obama, as president arrives in city to tape Letterman while NYPD mourns loss

President Obama offered brief remarks Monday on the death of a New York City patrolman, but the words rang hollow for NYPD officers and others gathered in tribute outside the hospital where 25-year-old Officer Brian Moore died.

Arriving in NYC to raise money and to tape “The Late Show with David Letterman,”  the president gave what some called “lip-service” to the slain officer before he slipped right back into “buck-it” mode – a self-described attitude the American people are acutely aware of.

Fox 13 reported:

Obama arrived in New York City Monday afternoon for several speaking engagements including a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman.

First stop, Mr. Obama was scheduled to launch the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, a nonprofit organization that is being established to continue the work of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative started by the president.

He will then deliver remarks at Lehman College in the Bronx. Afterwards, he will travel to Manhattan for a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman. He closes out his trip to the Big Apple with two Democratic National Committee events before returning to Washington, D.C.

Sheriff David Clarke didn’t waste any time before calling him out on his conduct:
