A Fox guest may have come up with the most creative way to blame President Obama for violence in Ferguson yet.
On today’s Your World, Neil Cavuto hosted Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to do the honors. Although the discussion started with Cavuto focusing on Al Sharpton, Clarke soon moved on to blaming Obama. Clarke's first round of Obama bashing was standard enough:
I also can’t for the life of me figure out - I heard some of the President’s comments last night and he said that what we need to do is try to understand them (protestors). And he said that the anger was an understandable reaction, and I was just floored by that because it’s not an understandable reaction. People have to come up with a more socially acceptable way to deal with anger and frustration.
But Clarke's second round of blaming Obama for Ferguson was jaw dropping:
When I heard the President call for calm after the rioting started, I questioned his sincerity because some of his political strategy of divide and conquer fuels this sort of racial animosity between people. And so I think when he called for calm after the rioting started, I believe it was done with a wink and a nod.
Of course, Cavuto didn’t challenge any of Clarke's baseless attack.
Who’s fueling animosity? It seems like it’s the Sheriff.
