CNN pundit calls Sheriff Clarke a ‘terrorist’ after hearing about his possible Trump appointment

Sometimes words have tricky definitions.

Two days after the presidential election CNN’s Don Lemon was discussing possible appointments to President-elect Donald Trump’s White house when a panelist said something that baffled him.

When the name of David Clarke was mentioned to possibly head the Department of Homeland Security, CNN commentator Angela Rye accused the Milwaukee County sheriff of being a terrorist.

“Someone like Sheriff Clarke would be considered as a Homeland Security Secretary. Someone who [I] very much see as, if he’s not a terrorist, inciting terrorism.” she said, “It’s hard for me to imagine, even if it was someone who was considered a Democrat or who was left-leaning and independent, it’s hard for me how [he could be part of the administration].”

Lemon jumped in to defend Clarke saying that calling him a terrorist was a “bridge too far.”

“To be honest with you, there are black people in Milwaukee that would say to you, ‘Yeah, he is very much like a terrorist,'” Rye argued.
