MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke came to the defense of President Donald Trump on FOX News this week.
Appearing on Sean Hannity's talk show, the sheriff vigorously defended the president against claims that his response to last weekend's violence in Charlottesville has helped enable the rise of white supremacy.
"I thought what he said was measured, it was thoughtful, it was very presidential," the sheriff said. "And it calmed the waters, unlike his predecessor Barack Obama, who after every one of these situations poured hot sauce on a simmering situation."
