Hear AM 1590 WCGO mid-day host Citizen Kelly’s exclusive interview with Sheriff David Clarke.
Kelly asked Clarke about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s statement that Trump “plays with dark forces” and condemned what he termed his “language of hate.” Clarke had a few choice words for Rahm:
“Rahm has single-handedly destroyed one of the great American cities – the City of Chicago. If you see what’s going on down there it’s ugly. He’s a very self-serving individual. We saw that with that police shooting of that man, McDonald. He’s trying to deflect. That’s what he does. He’s good at it. Playing the race card.”
Clarke says he could never work for Rahm Emanuel. “I’m not accountable to anyone in the political class…He [Rahm] dumped Garry McCarthy overboard and I’m not saying he shouldn’t have but that’s the kind of guy he is and if he found me politically expedient to dump overboard he would.”
