Sheriff Clarke Defends Sessions: 'I'm Tired of This Race Card Thing'

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who stumped for president-elect Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, defended Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Al., against accusations of racism.

"All we're hearing is that maybe 30 years ago he may have made some racially insensitive remarks. What do you make of this?" Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney asked Clarke on Monday.

"Well, first of all, you won't find a more fair, a more qualified, a more dedicated to the rule of law in the United States Constitution and justice for all persons than Sen. Jeff Sessions." Clarke said.

"I know Jeff Sessions… I've met him, I've worked with him on Capitol Hill — he doesn't have a racist bone in his body.

"I'm tired of this race card thing," he added. "The left is out of legitimate excuses for wanting some kind of dialogue about somebody… It's an automatic default from the left to call somebody a racist."

Clarke added that Sessions' appointment as attorney general is "a good step towards law and order."

Kellyanne Conway, who managed Trump's presidential campaign, joined Clarke in defending Sessions against the allegations.

"He's been a United States senator for 20 years. He was a law enforcement officer before that. He is incredibly qualified. Look, the criteria for any of these posts, is No. 1, are you qualified and capable of doing the job on Day One?" Conway told CNN's Chris Cuomo, according to Politico.

"Secondly, it's are you loyal to the agenda that the president-elect has put forward as his vision? And he has a right to go ahead and implement that with the advisers that he surrounds himself with."
