CNN Interview with Sheriff David Clarke Gets Volatile


Looking for civility and calm dialogue these days? Well don’t expect it from Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

Late Sunday, as final preparations for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland were under way, CNN’s Don Lemon sat down with Clarke and the exchange went from 0 to 100 real quick. The controversial lawman who has in the past made his disdain for the Black Lives Matter movement clear, began his interview with Lemon in an abrasive tone and it went downhill from there.

Lemon had producers break for commercial in the first few minutes of the conversation, but when he returned, Clarke went on the warpath again, deriding both Lemon, Black Lives Matter and pretty much every Black male in the country.
