Sheriff Clarke brought the boom to the RNC last night with his five opening words to the delegates. You are going to stand up and cheer when you see this.
Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke received a standing ovation at the Republican National Convention tonight after speaking barely more than five words to the delegates.
Taking to the stage, Clarke told the thousands gathered in the Quicken Loans Arena: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to make something very clear, blue lives matter in America.’
That statement had delegates immediately on their feet with a long peal of applause punctuated with shouts of ‘we love you sheriff’ and ‘police lives matter’.
Clarke then went on to celebrate the acquittal of Lt. Brian Rice who was the latest officer to be charged over the death of Freddie Grey, who died in police custody in Baltimore.
He then accused attorney Marilyn Mosby, who prosecuted the case, an ‘activist state’s attorney’ and described her actions as malicious.
Clarke then went on to speak about the convention’s theme, make America safe again, saying it is a ‘prerequisite’ to making America great again, which has been Donald Trump’s cornerstone pledge.
