America’s favorite lawman, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, had some strong words for Hillary Clinton regarding her controversial, racist-pandering ‘hot sauce’ comments.
First, a little background –
During a recent interview with a black radio host, Clinton was asked what one item she always carries in her bag.
“Hot sauce,” she answered. “Yeah.”
Another host almost immediately called her out on it, saying “Now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people.'”
Clarke, who is African-American, responded to the controversy by saying “I’m surprised she didn’t say watermelon — just go all the way in.”
He also pointed out that, had a Republican candidate tried so desperately to pander to the black community through a stereotype, their campaign would have likely ended.
“If any other candidate were to say something like that, some stereotype about black people, it would derail their campaign,” he explained. “But the rules seem to be different for the Clintons.”
Clarke also said that the ‘hot sauce’ comments were “dehumanizing,” “embarrassing,” and “disgusting.”

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Milwaukee Co. Sheriff David Clarke criticized Clinton for that answer and said if it were any other campaign, it would have derailed it.
“I’m surprised she didn’t say watermelon — just go all the way in,” Clarke said. “This stuff is dehumanizing. It’s embarrassing. It’s disgusting. And if any other candidate were to say something like that, some stereotype about black people, it would derail their campaign. But the rules seem to be different for the Clintons. You know, the folks she was being interviewed by, they saw right through it. That’s why they said they’re going to accuse you of pandering. They know it. Black people know they’re being pandered to. Nothing had gotten better.”
