Commenting on President Barack Obama’s first-time appearance on Fox News Sunday,  Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said Obama’s goals as president are to “destroy American exceptionalism,” obliterate the Constitution, and “destroy the Republican Party,” adding that the best thing about the Obama presidency “is that it’s coming to an end, and America’s nightmare will be over.”

Obama “doesn’t believe in any of what he said on Fox News Sunday,” said Sheriff Clarke on the April 11 edition of Fox & Friends.   “He came into office with three objectives: One was to destroy American exceptionalism; the next was to obliterate the United States Constitution; and the third was to destroy the Republican Party.”

“Now, he’s done a pretty good job with those three objectives, but he’s done nothing else for the American people,” said Sheriff Clarke, a Democrat.  “We used to be the envy of the world before he became president. But I don’t think that that’s the case anymore.”

“We’re not respected on the world stage,” Clarke said. “Putin doesn’t respect him. Many of the other leaders – Benjamin Netanyahu might out of political courtesy say he does, but he doesn’t either.”

“Look, the best thing about the Obma presidency right now is that it’s coming to an end,” said Sheriff Clarke.  “And America’s nightmare will be over and we’ll be able to pick up the ruins left by him and put this country back together again.”

David A. Clarke Jr. was elected to a 4-year term as the sheriff of Milwaukee County in 2002, and was re-elected in 2006, 2010 and 2014. In those elections he won, respectively, with 74%, 78%, 74%, and 79% of the vote.
