Hillary Clinton and her allies have been throwing out the race card when it comes to Donald Trump and his supporters, a move Sheriff David Clarke bills as “a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.”
Asked in an interview Wednesday whether she believes Trump is a racist, Clinton replied, “I’m gonna let people judge for themselves.”
The next day, Rob Reiner, a filmmaker and Clinton supporter, also weighed in, arguing that Trump’s rise has been fueled by “a lot of people who are racist in this country.”
Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke reacted on Fox and Friends Weekend, saying, “This word gets overused – it hardly has any meaning anymore.”
“You’re a racist. I’m a racist. Everybody’s a racist,” he said.
Sheriff Clarke pointed out that Clinton should perhaps look at her own background, including the history of her party and her past receipt of an award honoring the founder of Planned Parenthood. “She embraces that award. She embraces the support of an organization that kills more black babies than any other race,” he said.
“Her party has a history of racism. So I’m not going to sit up here and be lectured by Mrs. Bill Clinton, about who is a racist or who is not a racist.”
