I tweeted this earlier, and it is worth repeating for this post: The problem with not knowing any black people or having any "black friends" (I see you Paul Ryan), is that when you need to trot out a black face you are forced to go with lunatics like Sheriff David Clarke.
Dude is one of the speakers at the RNC convention tonight (Don 't worry David, that white only elevator sign was just an oversight), and to say that he is a bit unhinged is an understatement.
Let's just say that the sheriff from Milwaukee has some issues.
I certainly hope that speakers like David Clarke will be few and far between at the RNC convention this week.
And I hope, for the sake of the country, that we won't have anymore of this:
"Donald Trump has moved on from the birther movement to float another equally reckless conspiracy theory about President Barack Obama.
After three police officers were killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the president said that “there is no justification for violence against law enforcement. None.” He made similar comments after five officers were killed in Dallas on July 7, calling the attack “vicious, calculated and despicable.” He also flew to Dallas on Tuesday to speak at a memorial for the fallen officers.
Still, Trump questioned the legitimacy of Obama’s grief and concern.
“I watched the president, and sometimes the words are okay. But you just look at the body language and there’s something going on. Look, there’s something going on,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
“There’s just bad feeling,” he said.
Trump was responding to the head of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association’s claim that Obama “has blood on his hands” because he also condemned the police shootings of two African-American men.
“The president of the United States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public,” Steve Loomis said. “He validated with his very divisive statements and now we see an escalation.” [Source]
I suppose that president Obama can't grieve and show genuine concern because...well....you know.... those Black Lives Matter folks have to stick together. *big eye-roll*
