Just when you though you couldn’t like now-former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke more, he goes and adds to his list of favorable qualifications.
In a purported email exchange with a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist, Clarke told the reporter what he and the horse he rode in on could do.
…and yes, it involved an F-bomb!
In a line of questioning that suggested Clarke’s life is not worth the cost of protection, reporter Daniel Bice sent the former sheriff a series of questions last week asking for his thoughts on losing his round-the-clock, taxpayer-funded security detail since stepping down from office, according to The Washington Times.
Clarke, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, was granted a security detail last year after receiving more than two dozen death threats, the Journal Sentinel reported — at a cost of at least $226,000 since January.
An amount that Bice apparently saw as exceeding Clarke’s value as a human being.
“Was this a wise use of taxpayer dollars?” he asked, according to screenshots of their exchange Bice shared on Twitter.
Clarke responded like any red-blooded American with self worth would.
“‘F**k you and the horse you rode in on.’ I’m David Clarke and I approve this message,” Clarke replied.

And while liberals where aghast over Clarke’s frankness, the reaction on social media proves that there are may others who loved it, including Clarke himself:

The sherif is wrong to say “horse” in that exchange. Everyone knows left-wing “journalists” ride unicorns.
