Sheriff Clarke explains Obama’s ‘shoulder shrug’ over 5 dead servicemen: ‘None of them look like Trayvon’

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has his own thoughts about why President Obama reacted with almost indifference to the deaths of five U.S. service members in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Because the victims did not look like Trayvon Martin.

That’s right, the sheriff is playing the race card — saying the color of the skin of the sailor and four Marines killed Thursday by a Kuwait-born Muslim was a factor.

Consistent with past practice following a terrorist-related event, Obama attended a fundraiser in New York on Friday. He spent the night in the Big Apple and took in a Broadway matinee show on Saturday — the same day the U.S. sailor succumbed to his injuries – and he spent five hours on the golf course on Sunday.

While Clarke may be saying what many think, it’s because of the color of his skin that he’s afforded the luxury of expressing such an opinion in Obama’s post-racial America.

There was plenty of agreement on social media to Clarke’s opinion of the “Divider in Chief,” as one user described the president.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
