Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. railed against the media on Saturday, saying that recent reports about being under an FBI investigation are “designed to silence” him.
“I am UNINTIMIDATED by lib media attempts to smear and discredit me with their FAKE NEWS reports designed to silence me. I will continue to poke them in the eye with a sharp stick and bitch slap these scum bags til they get it. I have been attacked by better people than them,” the former sheriff tweeted with President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hashtag.
He continued later with a second tweet saying that the “fake news” media is trying to smear him. The tweet included a photo of a wrestling match that had been photoshopped to show Clarke kicking a man with the CNN logo on his face who was being held by President Trump.
“BREAKING NEWS! When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up FAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is go right at them. Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD. Nothing gets a bully like LYING LIB MEDIA’S attention better than to give them a taste of their own blood,” he tweeted with the photo. Read more at The Hill.
