Let’s face it, former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is an a**hole. But if there was any doubt about this fact, his latest act provides undeniable prove.
The disgraced former Sheriff and Fox News propagandist was boasting about dropping an f-bomb on a reporter last week after he was asked about his need for a security detail, the right-wing network reports.
“What’s it like 2 move from being a public official into civilian life? This DOPE reporter just found out. It’s great.” Clarke wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Charked was asked by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Peter Bice in an email last week about the loss of his round-the-clock security detail and the costly expenditures it required. Clarke bluntly replied: “‘F— you and the horse you rode in on.’ I’m David Clarke and I approve this message.”
Bice posted the Sept. 13 email exchange on Twitter Wednesday:

Bice had reported last week that Milwaukee County had spent upwards of $220,000 in 2017 alone to provide round-the-clock protection for the controversial law enforcement official and ally of President Trump.
Since resigning as sheriff, Clarke has been named a spokesman and senior adviser for the Pro-Trump America First Action super PAC.
