Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, March 06, 2019

For years, Sheriff David A. Clarke was a fixture on Fox News, raging against Black Lives Matter, reportedly neglecting his duties as sheriff, and owning libs at every corner. Nowadays, the firebrand Trump ally and ex-Milwaukee sheriff isn't welcome on Fox anymore, The Daily Beast has learned. ... "His rhetoric became crazier and crazier and most shows refused to use him," one source familiar with the situation told The Daily Beast.

Another Fox source suggested that it probably didn't help that the loud-mouthed sheriff repeatedly bashed high-school-aged Parkland shooting victims -- at one point accusing them of being funded by George Soros to "spew anti-gun talking points" -- at the same time Fox News was attempting to tread lightly after its primetime star Laura Ingraham faced a massive ad boycott for mocking the students.

Listening to Clarke was like chewing on battery acid. Good riddance.

Another useful idiot has outlived his usefulness to Faux news.

Hope his 15 min of fame was worth it.

I know a guy who can replace him. His name rhymes with Schmoaz.

Naw--I hear he has a new gig, as security chief at the new Foxconn plant. For now, he will pull third shift, with his office in a 2004 Dodge Stratus with a rack of lights on top and a magnetic 'Security' sign stuck on the driver's door. Dog will be bustin' miscreants soon enough...

I just dropped Sheriff Clarke, too. It was a two-flusher and left a skidmark.

With both Clarke and Scott Walker both out of politics, Wisconsin is slowly becoming tolerable.

I still wonder why Fox News kept him on board this long?

Tough to work at fox news these days. You have to lie constantly, but you have to only tell the right lies that don't make you look crazy. It's a tightrope act.

A clown that fox news relied on for years. What does that say about them? Trump also considered him for several senior posts in his administration. Neither trump nor fox every met a lying moron they didn't love.

When you're too much of a Nazi for the goose stepping nimrods at Fox, that's saying a lot!
