During an interview with “Fox and Friends” Saturday, disgraced right-wing former Sheriff David Clarke —who was busted for plagiarizing sections of his master’s thesis at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA— got more than he bargained for when he tried to attack the character and record of civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
Appearing on “Fox and Friends” weekend edition, Clarke tried to smear Lewis as “the most irrelevant member of Congress” before host Eboni Williams cut him off and said, “Sheriff let me say this to you. For you to say that nobody cares about John Lewis is inaccurate because I assure you that there are many people across this country that absolutely do care about him.”
“John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting rights and a variety of other things,” said Williams.
Clarke, who is accused of allowing an inmate to die of dehydration in a Milwaukee jail and of forcing a pregnant prisoner to give birth on the jailhouse floor, resulting in the death of her baby, had no choice but to swallow his bogus Republican talking points when Williams interrupted his remarks this response:
“I appreciate that history lesson but as somebody that holds a degree on the subject I really don’t need you to update me on who was required for Lyndon B. Johnson to pass the Civil Rights Act.”
